Criminal Defense

As a former Assistant State’s Attorney and private defense attorney, I have handled cases as simple as a traffic violation and as serious as murder. I opened Jerald Novak & Associates in 1987 to provide people charged with criminal offenses from DUI to sexual assault with high quality criminal defense representation.

My office is located in Grayslake, Illinois and I have represented clients who live throughout Lake County and northern Cook County, Illinois including the cities of Waukegan, Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Libertyville, Mundelein, Gurnee, and Vernon Hills. I provide a wide variety criminal defense services including:

  • Felony DUI
  • Vehicular Manslaughter
  • Theft
  • Sexual Assault
  • Domestic Battery
  • Drug Possession
  • Restraining Orders
  • Parole Violations
  • Vandalism

The keys to a good working relationship between a defense trial lawyer and their client are trust and communication. I am committed to assuring that my client understands their case. I take the time to meet with each of my clients, listen to the circumstance of their case, and provide them with an honest assessment of their legal situation. I believe that it is as important for my clients to feel as comfortable with me as a defense and trial lawyer, as I am with their case.
