Variations in Local Ordinances Can Often Entail the Need for a Drug Lawyer

Because Chicago and its various suburbs have varying ordinances and procedures regarding different drug violations, especially when it concerns marijuana, anyone charged with such an offense should consult with an experienced Chicago drug lawyer as soon as possible to determine whether or not the charge can be reduced, penalties lessened, or if the whole ordeal can be dropped altogether.

 

The Chicago area is not alone in this regard. Several cities and their surrounding suburbs have differing ordinances and laws regarding drug possession, which of course, begs the question: Is it illegal, and if so, how illegal is it? The fact of the matter is that when approached by a defense lawyer, prosecuting attorneys are often willing to drop drug charges depending upon the drug involved and the actual amount in possession. Questions regarding the right of the arresting officer to search the suspect and the suspect’s home or vehicle, in addition to difficulties in proving possession unless the drug was actually on the suspect’s physical person can make some drug charges less attractive to prosecutors.

 

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your case, you will not know if the charges you face can be dropped or reduced until you consult with a Chicago drug lawyer. Contacting Andrew W. Weisberg can help you to know the legal challenges you may face, the likelihood of a favorable outcome, and what your next course of action should be.

Special Prostitution Court in Cook County: How Do You Get Access?

Prostitution & Solicitation

Prostitution laws in Illinois have long treated prostitutes as criminals, but the reality is that many of the people who are working as prostitutes may not be there by choice.
