Attorney Douglas G. Swift

Douglas G. Swift

I am a criminal defense attorney representing clients in courts throughout DuPage, Cook, Kane, and Lake Counties. Concentrating on petty and misdemeanor driving and DUI offenses with some felony work as well.

In the 10 years immediately preceding relocation to Illinois, I was a deputy prosecuting attorney in Hamilton county Indiana where I, prepared and presented assigned cases from initial legal research through final disposition. I prosecuted felony and misdemeanor criminal cases in trials before juries and judges, securing convictions in murder, attempted murder, rape, and child pornography cases as well as conducting motion practice with an emphasis on impaired driving offenses. During that time I consistently resolved hundreds of cases per year and was Honored with Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office “White Hat” Award in 2007 and Honorable Mention in 2010.

Prior to that, I was an assistant public defender with the Charleston county South Carolina Public Defender’s Office from 2001-2005 I was recruited to assist with creating a new misdemeanor program within an already busy office that provided legal services to county residents who could not afford to hire their own representation. Quickly promoted within 1 year to the felony division, working a high volume of approximately 200 felony and misdemeanor files annually. Handled cases, primarily independently from end-to-end, including investigating, preparing, and presenting criminal defenses before the County General Sessions Court.
