Should I get an attorney if just charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession?
Any drug crime in the Chicago area requires a defense lawyer to fight to avoid repercussions. If you are convicted it can affect your future employment, and can create serious difficulties if ever arrested again on a drug charge as you will then be facing "repeat offender" treatment. It is important to get legal representation from a Chicago drug crime defense attorney at once after your arrest.
Is it possible to have my case dismissed?
Any case has flaws. Our aggressive and dedicated approach to drug crime defense can lead to a case dismissal, reduced charge or alternative sentencing. Every aspect of your case will be painstakingly reviewed to determine how we will proceed in fighting for your defense in court.
Will I go to prison?
Some drug crime offenses have mandatory prison sentences as part of the penalty. Acting quickly in contacting the firm can help you to fight to avoid prison time as well as the large fines and damage to your future a conviction would bring.
