Being accused of a drug crime could mean that your freedom, personal and professional reputations, and financial future are at risk. Criminal allegations mean that the accused is facing serious penalties. A serious situation, such as criminal charges, should be treated as such. This means that defendants in Illinois should take an aggressive approach in order to protect their rights and future.

Even though the state has built up a case against you, collecting much evidence against you, this does not mean that the evidence can stand or the charges will stick.
