Chicago Federal Child Pornography Attorney

Chicago child porn Lawyer

Experienced Illinois Lawyer for Clients Facing State or Federal Child Pornography Charges

Allegations of child pornography are extremely serious, and the accusation alone can be enough to damage your life forever. The consequences of a conviction can be almost unthinkable. If you are being investigated for or are facing federal charges for child pornography, Chicagoland defense attorney Hal M. Garfinkel is prepared to protect your rights.

As a former prosecutor, Attorney Garfinkel understands the techniques and tactics likely to be employed by the government against you, and is ready to assist you in building a qualified defense. With more than 20 years of criminal defense experience and a well-earned record of success, you can rely on him and his team to provide the legal counsel you deserve at a troubling time.

Federal Internet Crime and Child Pornography Lawyer in Cook County

Throughout his career, Mr. Garfinkel has handled a variety of cases related to child porn from both sides of the courtroom. He understands that the power of the Internet has evolved as not only a communication tool, but as a means to transmit images and content. However, he also realizes that there are many complexities in any Internet-related case, and, despite the involvement of federal investigators and prosecutors, proving your participation in such activities can be very difficult.

Contact the Chicago offices of Attorney Garfinkel today if you have been charged with:

  • Production of child pornography;
  • Reproduction and dissemination of child pornography;
  • Soliciting a child for participation in the production of such materials; or
  • Voluntary, knowing possession of child pornography.

While a federal conviction on child pornography charges can result in up to 15 years in federal prison and required registration as a sex offender, you may also face charges from the state of Illinois as well.

Being charged, however, does not mean you are guilty and Mr. Garfinkel will work hard to safeguard your rights and your future. Even if child pornography was found in your possession, there may be a reasonable explanation and he will ensure that prosecutors and the court know the whole story. Your computer or network may have been compromised by online criminal activity, your computer may have been used by someone else without your permission, or you may have reasonably believed that the images were legally produced with of-age participants. Whatever the case may be, you deserve a full, uncompromising defense against any and all child pornography charges.
