Illinois and Missouri Drug Charge Attorneys
Being arrested and charged with a drug crime can have an immediate and lasting impact on your life. These charges can lead to not only prison or jail time and enormous fines, but they can also impact your employment, personal life, financial well being and could even result in the forfeiture of your home or vehicles. Timing is often critical to a successful defense against drug charges, so if you have been arrested for a drug offense, call us today for a free consultation!
Drug charges are often more complex than they would appear. These cases often involve other aspects of the law including traffic stops, K9 sniffs, searches and seizures, surveillance issues, laboratory testing, and interrogation issues. We are meticulous in our investigation and review of discovery materials in order to determine if the arresting officers made any mistakes that may lead to dismissal of the charges or a not-guilty verdict at trial.

We have successfully represented hundreds of clients charged with drug crimes throughout Illinois and Missouri. Some of the types of drug cases we have handled are:
- Possession of Controlled Substances
- Possession of Methamphetamine

We Get Results
Most criminal cases, including drug charges, do not end up going to trial. However, we begin preparing for trial of your case the minute we are retained. This preparation often allows us to obtain excellent results whether through negotiation of a lenient plea, dismissal of the charges, or ultimately, a trial. We have been successful in obtaining dismissals of drug charges in both Illinois and Missouri cases and, in cases where the evidence is not favorable, we are often successful in negotiating for sentences that avoid jail or prison time.
