Experienced Negotiator and Trial Lawyer

Illinois prosecutors take drug charges very seriously. If you are charged with a drug crime in Illinois, you want an experienced and dedicated lawyer representing you. I have more than 30 years of legal experience. I am an experienced negotiator and trial lawyer who will actively pursue the best possible results on your behalf. Throughout my 30 years of legal practice, I have personally tried more than 200 trials to verdict.

Search and Seizure Issues

The Constitution gives all of us the right to be free from unreasonable searches, seizures and arrests. Search and seizure issues frequently arise in drug cases. In drug possession and drug trafficking cases, the state sometimes relies on evidence that has been obtained improperly. In some cases, evidence can be suppressed on constitutional grounds, such as a violation of your Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures.

You need an attorney who has the knowledge and experience to both recognize and properly fight illegal searches and seizures, and win your case. In each drug case I handle, I seek the suppression of evidence that has been illegally obtained. This includes the suppression of illegally obtained confessions, drugs and other evidence of an incriminating nature. I will fight to protect your rights under the Constitution.
