Skill and Experience
Whether you are accused of being involved in a drug conspiracy ring that handles heroin or crack or selling prescription drugs without a medical license, you need a lawyer with the skill and experience in these types of cases to protect your rights.
Malia & Rinehart has extensive trial experience, and success, in filing and arguing motions to suppress and other pretrial motions. Our firm excels when it comes to litigating a defendant’s constitutional rights by challenging evidence and procedural matters when law enforcement has overstepped their authority or not correctly adhered to the law.
Illinois courts and prosecutors are relying less and less on pretrial diversion options. We know how to negotiate effectively for these alternatives in each county. In addition, we are able to assist individuals with prior criminal cases to possibly expunge or seal your record, if you qualify. This can sometimes even be achieved for serious drug cases.

Our firm excels at minimizing or eliminating many, if not all, of the potential serious consequences associated with being charged with a drug-related crime.
