Anyone Facing Criminal Charges in Cook County Has a Right to a Lawyer

Residents of Cook County are well aware of the fact that we have what some would consider a tarnished reputation. Whether it is the notoriety of the criminal activity that occurs in Chicago, allegations of misconduct or corruption in various levels of government, or the mob connections that are dramatized in movies and on TV, many outsiders assume that almost everyone in the area has had to retain the services of a Cook County criminal lawyer at one time or another.

 

The reality is, however, that Cook County resembles every other area of the country. We have law abiding citizens and those who break the law. We have had excellent leaders at every level of municipal and county government, and we have had those whose integrity was called into question. Some folks in Cook County have had occasion to develop an almost constant relationship with their defense lawyer, while others have never spoken to a lawyer nor entered a Cook County Criminal Court in their lives, nor is it likely they ever will.

 

Regardless of reputation, anyone accused of criminal charges has the right to the expert legal representation that a good defense lawyer can provide. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a politician accused of bribery or a South Side ex-con charged with theft, the fact that some in Cook County have been found guilty of similar crimes cannot negate the fact that every suspect has the right to a lawyer and must be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

 

If you have been charged in Cook County, you have the same right to a criminal lawyer. Andrew M Weisberg understands your rights and will work assiduously to protect them, your reputation, and your freedom. Contact Cook County criminal lawyer Andrew Weisberg at his Chicago office today to get the help you need and the representation to which you are entitled.

 

If you have been arrested in Cook County, no matter how straightforward or complex your charges, Andrew M. Weisberg is a Cook County criminal lawyer in Chicago known for tough, aggressive defense. A former felony prosecutor, Attorney Weisberg has extensive experience in handling all types of criminal cases, from sex offenses and violent crimes to theft-related crimes and traffic violations. To contact Mr. Weisberg, visit https://www.chicagocriminallawyer.com/ or call his cell phone 24/7 at (773) 908-9811 or Text LAWYER to 25827 for prompt call back. The consultation is free.

Cook County Considers Clearing Some Drug Records, Not All

Drug Crimes

Traditionally, drug cases seemed very open and shut. If someone is found with a large manufacturing and delivery operation in Illinois for illegal drugs, then they face some serious legal consequences. Some aspects of drug crimes, however, may be changing.

The State Attorney of Cook County, Kim Foxx, wants to expunge certain crimes from people’s records. Convictions for marijuana are at the top of her list, but so are some crimes involving heroin and cocaine.

Foxx has a vision of
