Championing Your Rights

When faced with a family law matter or criminal charges, it can feel as though everything you have may slip away — your family, your freedom and everything you have worked for. These are stressful and challenging times without a doubt, but you do not have to face them alone.

At Fawell & Fawell, our lawyers will stand by your side and champion your rights. With more than 30 years of experience and a reputation for positive results, you can be confident in our ability to identify what is most important to you and mount a legal strategy designed to protect it. From our law office in Wheaton, Illinois, we serve people throughout the western suburbs of Chicago, and we are ready to get to work to help you.

A Practical, Results-Oriented Approach

Our goal is to achieve a positive outcome to your family law, divorce or criminal defense case without adding unnecessary drama and expense. We use our knowledge of the law and the local courts to pursue the quickest, most efficient path to the end result that you desire. Depending on the nature of the case, that may involve negotiation. However, should a more aggressive stance be required, we are prepared for trial. We are prepared to fight.

With experience on our side, we can provide representation in everything from the most straightforward matters to the most complex. Whether you have an uncontested divorce that you want to resolve in a timely manner or you are embroiled in a bitter, complex child custody dispute, we can stand by your side. Whether you have been accused of a relatively minor drug crime or you have been arrested on a potentially life-shattering felony charge, we are your advocates. We encourage you to reach out to us to find out how we can serve you.
