When you’re accused of a crime, your first desire is to have your name cleared. At The Law Office of Oscar H. Brown, this is our priority. We provide criminal defense assistance with all manner of criminal felonies and misdemeanors in Illinois. You can count on us for representation.
It is well known that Illinois has some of the harshest drug laws in the country. A conviction for a drug offense can potentially result in a prison term of years, exorbitant fines and a permanent criminal record. As well, a drug conviction can seriously impair an individual’s future. If you were arrested for a drug offense, it is crucial to hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who will aggressively defend your legal rights and who will methodically pursue the most favorable outcome possible. This may include the pursuit of a dismissal of charges, a reduction of charges, a favorable plea agreement, probation, community service or other alternative to incarceration. (Every case is unique and depends on the circumstances.)
Any criminal allegation can be devastating, but DUI charges are particularly problematic, as they can lead to both standard criminal penalties (such as fines or jail time) and license revocation. The ensuing damage to your criminal record and your driving record can make it difficult to secure and maintain employment.
