Our Association


The Lake County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association was founded to bring together members of the bar who are dedicated to the practice of criminal law and providing representation to the accused.  As criminal defense lawyers, we are on the front lines of defending the constitutional rights to which we are all entitled.

The LCCDLA is committed to the sharing of knowledge and expertise throughout the Lake County Defense bar through monthly meetings and annually scheduled Continuing Legal Education Seminars featuring local attorneys familiar with the Lake County Court system.  The LCCDLA wishes to organize criminal defense lawyers in our local community in a manner not previously available to Lake County defense bar to benefit attorneys, clients, and the community.
