Chicago defense attorney Andrew M. Weisberg knows exactly what you’re up against if you’re charged with any kind of drug crime. The war on drugs is still very much alive in the state of Illinois, and arrestees who do not work with an experienced drug crimes attorney often find themselves facing fines and prison sentences that are unjust and disproportionate to the crime they’re accused of committing. That’s because many of our state’s politicians, law enforcement authorities, prosecutors, and judges think that the best way to combat drug crimes is to make an example out of anyone they perceive as an offender.
Even if you are arrested for something as seemingly insignificant as a minor possession of cannabis, you could face jail time. No matter what the charge, you need to contact an experienced defense lawyer and start preparing for your day in court if you want to avoid harsh penalties and long-lasting consequences.
When you retain Andrew M. Weisberg, you’re getting a defense attorney who will fight for you both in and out of the courtroom. Mr. Weisberg is prepared to defend you against any drug crimes charges that may be brought against you, including:
Whether the crime you’re charged with is a misdemeanor or a felony, you need to take the accusation seriously, and you need to work with a criminal lawyer who has handled cases similar to yours and can mount the best possible defense.
Before becoming a Chicago defense attorney, Andrew M. Weisberg was on the other side of the aisle, serving as a Cook County prosecutor in drug crimes cases just like yours. Mr. Weisberg “switched sides” due to his deep belief in the right of every individual to receive a rigorous defense, and he is now able to use his experience as both a prosecutor and defense attorney to your advantage. He is intimately familiar with the types of tactics Chicago prosecutors use in drug crime cases, and he is able to use that knowledge to counter those tactics.
For example, Mr. Weisberg is aware that the prosecution will sometimes try to bring multiple drug charges against you so that if they don’t have enough evidence to obtain a conviction for one charge, they may be able to obtain a conviction for another. Knowing this, Attorney Weisberg is prepared to defend you against multiple charges and, when possible, to get those charges dropped.
Just because you’ve been charged with a drug crime doesn’t mean the prosecution necessarily has a strong case, and Andrew M. Weisberg knows this. In many instances, the prosecution is aware that the evidence in a drug case is questionable at best because of the way it was obtained.
For example, if the arresting officer entered your home without a warrant or pulled you over at a traffic stop without any reasonable justification, they unconstitutionally obtained evidence, and Mr. Weisberg will be able to present a compelling argument to have this evidence thrown out. In other cases, the prosecution may have found drugs but cannot directly link it to the person being charged. Mr. Weisberg will pick apart the prosecution’s argument and work to show that there isn’t enough evidence against you to warrant a conviction.
With his thoroughness and attention to detail, Andrew M. Weisberg is often able to get drug charges against clients reduced to a lesser charge or even dropped altogether. And no matter what approach he takes or tactics he employs, he will keep you informed at every juncture and will vigorously defend you every step of the way. You don’t have to worry about being left in the dark when you retain Chicago defense attorney Andrew M. Weisberg.
Whether or not there is solid evidence to suggest you committed a drug crime, Andrew M. Weisberg will provide you with staunch support and the best defense possible. Mr. Weisberg knows that the penalties for non-violent crimes are often blown out of proportion in Illinois, and he believes that anyone charged with a drug crime deserves the best defense possible to help them avoid serving a lengthy prison sentence. Even if it seems like the evidence is stacked against you, Attorney Weisberg will work tirelessly to convince the judge that an alternative sentence, like probation or substance abuse therapy, is a far better solution than prison.
