Schaumburg Drug Crime Defense Lawyer
Call Us After a Drug Offense Arrest in the Chicagoland Area
Drug offense charges, such as possession, trafficking, and intent to sell, are serious, and the harder the drugs or greater the amounts involved, the higher the stakes become.
The Illinois Controlled Substances Act 720 (ILCS 550/4) separates drugs into different categories or schedules depending on how addictive or socially harmful they are, with Schedule I drugs like cocaine and heroin being the most dangerous. Even having one gram of cocaine in your possession can land you a minimum of four years in prison, if convicted.
Illinois police and state prosecutors are practiced at drug enforcement, and if you are charged with a drug-related offense they will use the full weight of the justice system to convict you. You need a lawyer who is just as diligent to protect your future and your freedom.
Before you speak to law enforcement or consent to answering their questions, call the Law Office of Gregory Walker at (312) 604-2250 for a free consultation.
