Renowned Criminal Defense Attorney Serves Waukegan and Lake County, IL

Now helping you establish a legal medical marijuana enterprise

Residents of Waukegan and greater Lake County have looked to Stone & Associates for reliable and effective legal counsel since 1977. We provide hope for those who don’t know where to turn. Although many people believe they can’t afford any representation except a free public defender, we work with their families to offer flexible payment options, giving their loved ones a chance to prove their innocence. Prison is awful. Our goal is to keep you or someone you care about out of it and free.

Providing a strong defense for any criminal charges

When you hire Stone & Associates as your criminal law firm, you pick one of the county’s most respected firms. Our reputation for helping clients no matter what they’re charged with is based on our attorney’s almost four decades of advocating for Lake County residents. By hiring us, you’re sending the district attorney and prosecutors a message. Local Illinois residents and court personnel know us for:

  • Commitment to justice — We work tirelessly to get you results for your criminal law matter. And we have tried many death penalty cases successfully. 
  • Accessibility — Attorney Jeb Stone makes daily rounds at the local jails to consult with our clients.
  • Flexible payment plans and a free initial consultation — Excellent legal representation isn’t free, and we understand that you probably are worried about the cost. Not only do we offer a free initial consultation, but we also offer a payment plan for those who need one. 
  • Experience and results — Of course, every client’s situation is different. And while we can’t promise a particular result, we nevertheless have a passion for what we do and want the most successful outcome.

If you have been charged with something that you find embarrassing or difficult to discuss, you can count on us to treat you with respect and to focus on the best solution.

Offering criminal defense for drug charges and other crimes

Many former clients tell us that they owe their freedom to criminal defense lawyer Stone. Our steadfast fight to keep you from going to jail gives you an extra edge against the prosecution.

With almost 40 years of legal experience in Waukegan, there is little that attorney Stone and our legal team haven’t provided — or won’t provide — a defense for. Every week we speak with clients about the entire gamut of charges, including most commonly:

  • Murder and homicide
  • Manslaughter and vehicular manslaughter
  • Assault and battery

  • Rape and sexual assault
