Bloomington Choose The Prior
Law Firm to Defend Them
Selecting the right attorney goes beyond making sure they have handled your specific charge in the past. When people choose John Prior, Jr. and The Prior Law Firm, it is due to several very important reasons.
Experience and Background. The Prior Law Firm, P.C. has been helping people in and around Bloomington to fight for their rights since 2004. Over the lifetime of the firm, Mr. Prior has successfully defended countless people charged throughout Illinois. However, his experience in criminal law started long before 2004.
For years, he worked as a brief writer for the Appellate Prosecutor’s office, an Assistant State’s Attorney and even served as the elected State’s Attorney for Henderson County. In other words, his job was to build cases against alleged offenders and try to secure convictions.
Why should this matter to you? Because it means that he understands how the minds of prosecutors work. He now uses the countless hours he spent crafting legal strategies to put people behind bars to more easily anticipate and poke holes in those strategies when defending his clients.
Recognition and Results. Over his years of defending people just like you, Mr. Prior has been recognized in a number of ways, including being named a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by The National Trial Lawyers and earning glowing reviews and a high rating on Avvo.
Dedication and Respect. When you find yourself facing criminal charges, it can negatively impact the rest of your life. Because of this, fighting those charges should be your number one priority.
John Prior, Jr. has a clear understanding of the stakes involved and will use every legal avenue available to him to make sure your rights are respected as he works to get your charges reduced, dropped, or dismissed. Moreover, he knows how confusing and depersonalizing the criminal legal process can be for defendants, so he strives to help his clients understand their situation and keep them informed about what to expect every step of the way.
