Illinois law forbids the manufacture, distribution, or possession of a controlled substance and conviction carries with it sentences ranging from probation to extended incarceration with forfeiture of property. Any drug crime is a serious matter in Illinois and necessitates the assistance of an experienced Chicago drug trafficking lawyer. If you or a loved one has been accused of drug trafficking or any other drug related crime, such as delivery of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, or possession of a controlled substance, the criminal defense lawyers from the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege are dedicated to seeking acquittals in every case possible.
If you are charged with a "drug crime" it is important to ensure your drug trafficking attorney is a veteran who has a working knowledge of the law. The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act was passed by Congress in 1970 and classifies controlled substances into five categories as to addiction and abuse potential. Possession of drugs, or more serious infractions within 1000 feet of certain protected zones, such as schools, theaters and parks, may result in penalties and sentences being doubled in severity. A criminal defense attorney for the firm is conversant with the laws governing the execution of search warrants, warrant and warrantless arrests, as well as illegal search and seizure
Whether the substance involved in your matter is heroin, LSD, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, or another, a criminal defense lawyer from the firm has the goal of fighting to win your case or reduce the damage you could suffer without strong legal representation. Since law enforcement personnel are strictly regulated as to the procedures they must follow, investigation into their actions for any violations will be a high priority.

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
