Serious Consequences

Illinois takes a tough stance on drug enforcement. Drug trafficking and other charges carry up to 30 years in jail. There is often little opportunity to negotiate lesser charges or other options. Additionally, a conviction can cause you to lose your Firearm Owner’s Identification card. Depending on your situation, the state can also seize your property, including your:

• Home
• Car
• Boat
• Airplane

Our legal team provides thorough, aggressive defense. We evaluate every aspect of your case. We review your arrest or any seizures to determine if proper procedures were followed. If police officers or other law enforcement personnel violate your civil rights, we will fight to get evidence suppressed and the charges dismissed. We will evaluate your case thoroughly to determine if you experienced:

• Improper search or seizure
• Illegal stop and/or arrest
• Illegal vehicle searches
• Warrantless searches
• Miranda rule violations
• Improperly obtained confession/statements

We have extensive experience handling criminal trials, as well as criminal appeals. We can also help to seal or expunge your criminal record or apply for a pardon or commutation of sentence.
