Experienced Defense Against Drug Possession Charges
In Illinois, prosecutors remain committed to vigorously seeking convictions and penalties for the unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Whether you are alleged to have marijuana, heroin, crack cocaine, painkillers without a valid prescription or any other illegal substance, the penalties you face can be serious.
A conviction for drug possession can harm your career, your family relationships and result in the loss of your freedom. You need criminal defense lawyers ready to take your case before a jury and fight for a “not-guilty” verdict.
A Criminal Defense Law Firm With A Reputation For Outstanding Trial Work
At Erickson & Oppenheimer, Ltd., you will not be pressured to accept a plea bargain that is not in your best interests. Instead, we will fight vigorously to defend your rights and have the charges dismissed.
We approach every case by meticulously examining every detail of the circumstances of your arrest, the police report, and other evidence. We will ensure police did not violate your constitutional rights when obtaining evidence. For example, did police have probable cause to pull over your vehicle? Were you detained at a traffic stop against your Fourth Amendment rights while police searched your vehicle? Did police obtain a warrant before searching your home?
If the answers to these questions suggest your rights were violated, Jon Erickson and Michael Oppenheimer are experienced trial attorneys who know how to hold police accountable. They will argue vigorously and persuasively to have the evidence obtained against you thrown out of court.
