Chicago Prescription Fraud Lawyer
Defense for Fraudulently Obtaining Prescription Drugs
Prescription drug charges are not uncommon in our modern society, especially since celebrities, including actors and sports stars, have had their names linked to the offense. A key type of drug crime related to prescription medication is prescription fraud. The addictive power of painkillers and appeal of mind-altering drugs such as anti-depressants have made prescription fraud and related offenses increasingly common.

We are former prosecutors and experienced defense lawyers who have thousands of cases under our belts. We are familiar with facing off against even the most aggressive prosecutors and law enforcement investigators in cases related to:

- Theft of prescription drugs
- Doctor shopping (seeing multiple doctors for the same prescription)
- Stealing blank prescription slips
- Unlawfully selling or distributing prescription medication
- Unlawful possession of a prescription drug
