I am Michael J. Rousseau, and I believe everyone deserves an aggressive defense of his or her rights regardless of the criminal charges he or she is facing. In 2005, I decided to start my Belleville, Illinois, law firm to better protect the rights of the accused as a private criminal defense attorney. I began my career in 2001 as an assistant prosecutor in the state's attorney's office, and later, I became a public defender for St. Clair County handling a wide variety of criminal defense cases.
 
As an experienced criminal defense attorney my only concern is that your rights are not violated in any way. I work to ensure you are treated fairly. My law firm has successfully handled hundreds of criminal defense cases including DUI/DWI, drug crimes and weapons charges. In every case I take, I gather the necessary information, interview any witnesses, and perform a thorough review of the case to determine if any errors were made by the arresting officer.

Because I have worked on both sides of the aisle in the criminal court system, I have a unique perspective in reviewing each case to identify any weaknesses and develop a strong argument for your defense. In many cases, I am able to get the charges reduced or even dropped. I am not afraid to take on any criminal defense issue, including:

  • Criminal Law
  • Battery
  • Burglary
  • Domestic Violence (including Orders of Protection)
  • Drug Offenses
  • DUI / DWI
  • Felonies Home Invasion
  • Juvenile Issues
  • Manslaughter / Murder
  • Misdemeanors
  • Personal Injury
  • Probation Violations
  • Property Crimes
  • Traffic Violations
  • Summary Suspensions
  • Warrants
  • Weapon Offenses

If you have been arrested for a criminal offense, it is important to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible, preferably before speaking with the authorities. Off-site appointments can be arranged and credit cards are accepted. Payment plans can also be arranged, and most cases are taken on a flat fee basis, so you know what to expect from the beginning. My law firm offers a free, confidential initial consultation, and I am available by telephone 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Contact the Belleville, Illinois, Law Office of Michael J. Rousseau to discuss your case today.
