Drug Crimes

Aggressive Tinley Park Criminal Defense Attorney Defending You Against Drug Crime Charges

Drug CrimeSince the War on Drugs started, the lives of countless Americans have been turned upside down over drug charges. Many were low-level, nonviolent offenders who suffered from addiction or had simply made a poor choice, yet they experienced heavy and long-term consequences. At the Fotopoulos Law Office, we do not believe that a single, nonviolent offense should result in life-altering penalties. We dedicate our time, energy, and resources to preventing our clients from facing such a fate.

Consequences of a Drug Charge in Illinois

While, in some cases, nonviolent drug offenders could face limited penalties, many are at risk for serious consequences. In fact, having even just a small amount of the wrong drug at the wrong place could result in a felony charge. In such instances, conviction carries a possible prison term. It could also significantly alter the course of your life, long after you have served your time. Your employment and housing opportunities could be severely limited. You could lose your right to own, purchase, or use a firearm. You could even suffer a loss of certain benefits, such as food stamps or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF).

Do not be fooled into thinking you have to simply accept this future. It is possible to fight back against a drug charge, and our attorney will serve as your dedicated advocate. Fully committed to helping you reach the most favorable outcome possible, we will take immediate and aggressive action in your case.
