Criminal DefenseCriminal Defense

When your life and freedom are on the line, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer with a solid history of successfully trying cases. Polinske & Associates represents people just like you who are facing potentially life-changing criminal charges. We will work tirelessly to clear your name in cases involving felony drug violations, cannabis trafficking, DUI, domestic battery, white collar crimes, violent crimes, Methamphetamine and Cannabis Trafficking and other criminal acts.

Cannabis Delivery defense

If you are charged with the felony offense of Cannabis Delivery in Madison County Illinois you should seek competent counsel.  Oftentimes these charges can be dismissed or reduced to a less serious offense.  Reduction of bond is your first step.  When your release is secured you focus next on the preliminary hearing and arraignment.  Then on the discovery and motion practice.  I can typically spot whether there are good grounds to win a Motion to Suppress Evidence against the State.  In a surprisingly high amount of cases the initial stop and subsequent search are fraught with constitutional issues.  Identifying them, filing the appropriate motions and effectively presenting them to the judge are all equally important.  Choose competent and experienced counsel to defend you in this situation.

Cannabis Trafficking - Your Best DefenseCannabis Trafficking - Your Best Defense

Hire the best experienced and qualified criminal defense trial attorney to resolve your cannabis trafficking charge.  You should always ask for successful cases the attorney has recently resolved.  Check the court records to confirm.  Your case has its own particular issues that can oftentimes result in suppression of evidence.  

At Polinske & Associates, P.C., we have steadfastly defended clients' cannabis trafficking cases for a combined 46 years.  We are reknown for our success in these cases.  Call us to begin your path forward to acquittal.
