When you have been charged with a drug-related crime you need an experienced drug lawyer. It may be true that America’s attitude towards certain drugs is slowly changing. The fact of the matter, however, is that narcotic related offenses remain highly enforced in Chicago and Illinois as a whole. Those who have been charged face serious consequences such as incarceration, financial penalties, a permanent criminal record, and potentially having to register as a felon. If you find yourself facing such a situation then you should retain a criminal defense lawyer immediately. Our Chicago drug lawyer handles state and federal cases in Cook County and in other Illinois areas. Contact our Orland Park office today to schedule an initial consultation for your drug crime case.

Both the state of Illinois and the federal government take a harsh stance against drug crimes. Common charges include drug possession, drug trafficking, marijuana charges, and crimes related to prescription drugs. Depending on the situation you may be charged with a misdemeanor, a felony, or you may be facing federal criminal charges. Issues which are common in each of these settings include the fact that law enforcement officials often seize the drugs through violations of one’s search and seizure rights. Other common issues include whether the defendant actually possessed or controlled the drugs in question. If you are facing narcotic related charges then it is crucial that you contact an attorney.
