Illinois Defense Law Firm for Meth Lab Operators

Running a Meth Lab Defense Attorney Serving DuPage County and Cook County

Operating a methadone lab in Illinois always creates a major public health risk. Individuals making the illegal, highly addictive drug can be charged with a criminal offense not only for making the drug, but also for exposing people to dangers of this harmful toxin in the environment. When you are charged with operating a meth lab, you need immediate experienced legal representation. The attorneys in the law office of Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C. are skilled professionals, who have successfully defended clients charged with operating a meth lab and a wide range of drug offenses throughout the Chicago area.

Operating Meth Lab Charges in Northwest Illinois

Prosecutors in Illinois fight vigorously to shut down meth operations amid strong public outcry against drug manufacturers and distributors. Because meth is usually made secretly in houses, apartments, hotel rooms, cars, and even outdoors, the public health risk is compounded. Even after a meth lab is closed, its chemical residues can linger indefinitely. Those manufacturing and using meth are intent on getting the "rush" from this highly addictive drug, and unaware of the severe health consequences from its long-term use, including loss of reason, facial distortions, and other harmful body changes.
