When It Comes To Drug Charges, The Best Defense Is A Good Offense
As criminal defense attorneys, we know that even though we’re up against prosecutors looking for a conviction, a defensive approach is far from the best way to approach a case.
Whether we’re negotiating directly with the government, working to get a client into a diversion program, or trying a case before a judge or jury, we’re equally exhaustive in advancing the arguments and presenting the evidence most favorable to our clients. We are experienced in handling a wide range of misdemeanor and felony drug-related charges in Illinois, which may involve illegal possession, distribution or manufacturing of substances like:
- MDMA (ecstasy)
- Prescription medications, including Vicodin and OxyContin
Extensive Experience Defending Against Drug Charges
All across the nation drug crimes are vigorously prosecuted with an eye toward leveling the most significant criminal penalties possible. As experienced defense attorneys, it is our job to shield you from the full force of the criminal justice system. With decades of combined experience, our legal team will vigorously fight to minimize your exposure to the consequences of a heroin possession charge.
At McSweeney Moore Law Offices, we have extensive criminal defense experience and the insight of former prosecutors to guide our firm. In even the most complex drug crimes, our lawyers will provide personal service, honest answers and aggressive defense from start to finish.
Aggressive, Effective Criminal Defense
In Illinois, heroin is a Schedule 1 controlled substance meaning that law enforcement might pursue the charges more aggressively. As experienced Cook County defense attorneys, we understand that heroin is an extremely addictive drug and the situation leading to a heroin possession charge is likely more complex than police are able to account for. That is our job. Whether we are negotiating a plea deal with the prosecutor — attempting to find a compromise for reduced or dismissed charges — or defending your case in court, it is our job to protect you. This might mean that we seek a drug treatment and rehabilitation program. All through the legal process, we will always have your best interests as our priority.
