- Drug possession

- Drug conspiracies, including gang-related crimes
We also help clients in asset forfeiture cases where their cars or other property have been seized by the government because they may have been used in the commission of a drug crime.
Dealing With the Feds
Building a defense against federal drug charges requires our attorneys to take a more aggressive approach. Federal prosecutors also have access to sophisticated resources to help them build their cases. The federal sentencing guidelines are harsh, and federal prosecutors are more likely to cherry pick the drug cases most likely to produce a conviction.
Our criminal defense attorneys are, knowledgeable, flexible and able to negotiate hard on your behalf. We work with prosecutors and probation office, such as during the preparation of the pre-sentence investigation report, to help build a case for reduced prison time.
Dealing With the State of Illinois
The sentencing guidelines are different at the state level, and we are able to do more damage control on our client's behalf.
