A Strong Legal Advocate In Your Corner Against Serious Criminal Charges
Some of the most frequently charged crimes in Illinois involve drugs, guns or both. But although these types of crimes are common, they are not treated lightly. If you find yourself facing charges, you need a tough legal advocate on your side.
At the Law Office of Samuel Jackson III, LLC, clients receive high-quality criminal defense and personalized attention at rates they can afford. Attorney Samuel Jackson III focuses entirely on criminal defense, and he is reachable whenever you need him – day or night.
Skilled Defense Against Possession And Other Drug Charges
Ever since Illinois legalized recreational marijuana, there has been a significant drop in arrests related to simple possession of that particular drug. But police have shifted their focus to aggressively going after other drugs and defendants, from low-level buyers up to the supply chain.
Attorney Jackson is ready to help you if you have been charged with any drug-related offense, including:
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug selling
- Drug trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
While “street drugs” like meth and crack cocaine are what many people think of when they hear the term drug crimes, police are also aggressively going after prescription opioids and drugs that produce the same effects (heroin, fentanyl, etc.). If you are caught in possession of a prescription drug without a valid prescription, you could easily be facing serious charges. As such, you need the help of a skilled attorney like Mr. Jackson.
Gun Charges Almost Always Carry Serious Penalties
There are certain states where carrying a gun is nearly as socially acceptable as carrying a wallet, but Illinois is not one of them. The state has strict gun laws, and violating them by accident is easier than you might think.
To keep a firearm on your person or in your vehicle, you usually need a Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card and a Concealed Carry License (CCL). Even with these, however, there are places where it is illegal to carry, including any place that is licensed to sell alcohol. If you forget, the charges can be severe.
Attorney Samuel Jackson III can help you contest nearly any gun crime you are facing, including:
- Unlawful possession
- Unlawful use of a weapon by a felon
- Unlawful use of a weapon
- Aggravated discharge
- Armed habitual criminal
You cannot afford to treat any gun charge lightly. Instead, contact an experienced Chicago defense attorney who can protect your rights and help you understand your full list of options.
