How Our Criminal Lawyers Work

LibertyBell Law Group is a full-service criminal defense firm, offering the best criminal attorneys and legal assistance in all areas of criminal law. Our criminal lawyers will be by your side through all stages of the criminal process in state and federal courts.

Full Circle Defense

Our criminal lawyers represent you through the entirety of your case. This is important for clients who are already facing formal criminal charges, which is quite often the case when clients or family members contact us. Rest assured that LibertyBell Law Group’s criminal attorneys can handle every aspect of your case through our experienced team approach to defense.

We charge a stated flat fee for our criminal defense services. This lets you know exactly how much your representation will cost. With us, rather than hiring a single or sole criminal lawyer, you receive the benefit of the collective experience of our team of seasoned defense attorneys.

When you hire our criminal law firm to represent you or your loved one through trial, if necessary, no matter how long your trial may be, you will not pay additional legal fees. Our length of experience permits us to quote fees up front and protects you against the common practice of attorneys billing clients large unexpected fees.

Pre-file Defense

If you believe that you may be under investigation or if you in fact have been contacted by law enforcement, but no criminal charges have been filed, it is imperative that you contact a criminal lawyer immediately to inquire about legal representation.

This first step could be the key to preventing charges from being filed. Our criminal lawyers have an above average success rate, one of the best in the nation, of preventing a criminal case from being file. If later on charges are filed, then it is extremely helpful to have your team of criminal lawyers in place, ready to defend your rights under the law.

We offer Pre-file legal Services at a stated flat fee. This fee is substantially lower than what it would cost to represent you during your entire case if charges were to be filed. Our criminal defense law firm provides this service to you so that people can have the advantage of representation at this crucial stage, thus making legal representation more accessible when likely needed most.

Post-conviction Relief

Our criminal lawyers are also successful in post-conviction relief. When convicted of a crime, it is imperative that every possible post-conviction option be considered. Whether through an appeal, a collateral attack, or petition of “actual innocence,” many convictions should be reviewed by an appellate court. This can result in the conviction being overturned or the sentence being reduced. At LibertyBell law firm we have a team of determined criminal attorneys who focus on Post-Conviction work.

If you are uncertain as to possible post-conviction remedies, LibertyBell criminal attorneys can evaluate your matter by looking at case documents, such as transcripts, discovery, motions, etc. Our experienced appellate counsel will advise you of your post-conviction options and help you decide whether it would be prudent for you to move forward.

As our criminal lawyers only conduct an evaluation during this option, we do not charge a full fee as if we were completing a post-conviction attack. As part the evaluation process we will review the sentence imposed to see if there are any grounds to challenge the sentence. Only if you decide you wish to continue and file post-conviction pleadings do we charge additional fees and those fees are quoted up front with a fee stated in advance. By using this approach, we can present you with your legal options and make recommendations without charging large fees for future potential work.

Remember there are several different Post Conviction remedies and it takes an experienced criminal lawyer to know how to best apply the ever-changing laws in this very specialized area.

At LibertyBell, a leading national defense law firm, you get the most aggressive and experienced criminal attorneys with straightforward transparent fees.

Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.


I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!

Best defense lawyers in the country.


I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.

A great team of lawyers.


I do not have enough words to describe how incredible the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!

She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.


My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.

Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.


When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at LibertyBell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.

Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.


Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.

Will Recommend, Total Experience, Awesome Team


Being involved in legal matters can be scary. When researching who to put my trust in, I came across Liberty and I am glad that I did. From the first time that I met with Gina and her team she made me feel comfortable and listened to all that I had to say. She assured me that her team would be on it and that they would do everything that they could! A little while in, Alan took over my case. When meeting with him you can tell that this is his passion and I immediately knew he was going to do everything in his power to make the outcome right! He was relentless and worked day and night working on the case. He kept in constant communication with me and truly cared not only about me but about my family as well. I am forever grateful for the support that this whole team has given me and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for truly the best lawyers!
