We offer clients vigorous defense counsel and explore every avenue to minimize the consequences you will face.
Suppressing Evidence in Drug Possession Cases
In order to successfully prosecute a drug possession case, the prosecution must prove that you had the illegal drug in your possession. If the evidence against you was not properly collected and your rights were violated, however, that evidence can be suppressed by the judge. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about Illinois search and seizure laws and are experienced in arguing the admissibility of drug evidence in court. Wherever it is possible to exclude the evidence against you, we will pursue it.
Alternative Sentencing for Drug Possession
Sometimes the best outcome in a drug possession case is to negotiate a plea deal and pursue alternative sentencing options. We are experienced in helping our clients take advantage of drug court and first offender probation as ways to stay out of jail. Many drug possession cases stem from addiction, and we seek to help our clients get the help they need to recover and avoid future prosecution.
