Ensure That The Criminal Justice System Treats You Fairly

Getting charged with a crime is a serious matter. Even the smallest of charges can have serious consequences — and while everybody is innocent until proven guilty, many times it may feel like the system is against you from the start.

Beavers, Calvert, & Brotherton has advocated on behalf of the accused in central Illinois for over 85 years. While you may know some of your rights, we know them all and will fight tirelessly to protect them. During a time when the criminal justice system hardly seems just, our goal is to ensure that you are treated fairly.
