- Drug trafficking
- Drug possession/possession with intent to sell
- Drug manufacturing, including operating a marijuana grow house
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Asset forfeiture and other financial risks associated with drug crimes
- Prescription drug charges

Unfortunately, many times police obtain drug evidence through unlawful means as a result of an illegal seizure or illegal search. Our Chicago criminal defense law firm will thoroughly investigate all the facts of your case to determine whether the police illegally seized you, by conducting an illegal stop of your vehicle or yourself, or illegally searched you or your home or car. Did they have a warrant? Was the warrant valid? If the evidence against you was illegally obtained, we will file motions to suppress that evidence to keep it from being used against you which often results in the evidence being ruled inadmissible by the court. Inadmissible evidence cannot be used by the government or state in a criminal prosecution, and therefore the successful filing of a motion to suppress will often result in the government being forced to dismiss the case against the defendant. Chicago criminal defense attorney Michael Rosenblat has been successful in have many cases dismissed based on law enforcement violating his client’s fourth amendment rights to be free from unreasonable searches or seizures. Mr. Rosenblat even had a possession of child pornography case dismissed based on law enforcement destroying evidence favorable to the defendant.
