You cannot afford to be flippant with your future or to simply give up. This is not the time to simply accept your fate without a fight.

Drug crimes can carry with them severe and detrimental consequences that should not be taken lightly.

Facing State or Federal Drug Charges in Chicago?

If you think you're a suspect or have already been charged with a serious drug crime in state or federal courts, choosing the right defense lawyer for each unique case is an important decision that no one should take lightly. It is in your best interests to retain the services of an experienced and aggressive defense attorney committed to protecting your constitutional rights and potentially minimizing any criminal penalties. It's also important to consider which type of law firm best suits the needs of your unique circumstances. Do you want a huge firm with hundreds of clients, or a smaller boutique law firm which may offer more personal attention and dedication to your case?

The Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege, an intimate team of experienced criminal defense attorneys, is dedicated to protecting the rights, freedom and best interests of those charged with drug crimes in Chicago by offering quality legal advice and assistance in all types of criminal drug crimes. Federal drug crimes are taken very seriously and even first time offenders can be sent to prison. Additionally, charges for possession of controlled substances or possession with intent to deliver should be taken very seriously even if it is a first time offense. Charges for drug trafficking can differ depending on the type of drug and the location of the delivery. Delivery of controlled substances such as LSD, heroin, marijuana, cocaine or ecstasy can result in more severe sentences if the delivery occurs within 1000 feet of certain protected zones. A Chicago drug defense attorney can help you fight these charges by claiming an illegal search and seizure or an illegal vehicle search.

The skilled legal team at the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege are well equipped to handle your misdemeanor drug crime charges. Even though the penalties for misdemeanor drug charges are less severe than federal drug charges, we understand the negative effect that criminal convictions can have on the future of your career and social life. If you feel you have been unlawfully arrested because of an illegal search warrant, a Chicago drug crime lawyer can help.

Drug-related crimes can have very serious criminal penalties and, because of this, the criminal defense lawyer you choose should be highly skilled and experienced in Chicago state and federal courts. Criminal defense attorneys at the firm have extensive experience with criminal drug cases in Chicago and will aggressively defend clients charged with crimes such as prescription drug fraud or felony fraud crime. Lawyers from the firm thoroughly investigate your case, evaluate the evidence against you, and file the necessary motions to suppress any evidence gained through illegal search of your home or property.
