How long do drugs stay in my system? Court ordered drug test.

First, you should not be doing any illegal drugs. Period. If you have a prescription, you should talk to your prescribing doctor about all of the possible side effects and effects if you combine other drugs or alcohol. You might be used to your prescription but they may have an entirely different effect when combining the two.

Know that even if you take a "legal" prescription, it can have an effect on your custody and/or visitation. Call our office at (312) 648-6115 for a free consultation.

There is more than one type of drug test...There is the commonly known "pee test" that many employers use for job applicants. There are also more through tests that require a blood draw and or use of the hair follicle. Blood and Hair tests tend to provide a longer history.

About the Author

Christopher Holwell

Christopher W. Holwell Attorney/Principal 6 years with Holwell Group, LLC/Law Offices of Christopher W. Holwell 15 years as a trial attorney for Divorce, Real Estate, Insurance Coverage, and Injury. One of my biggest accomplishments in a divorce case was getting a multi-million dollar settlement from a spouse that was not disclosing several million dollars in assets. In addition, I was able to get the other spouse to fully fund the one child's college education as part of the settlement. Another of my biggest accomplishments in an injury case was procuring a several hundred thousand dollar settlement for my 14-year-old client who suffered a knee injury during an after school athletic program. I was able to get all interested parties to set aside funds for the client's college fund in case his athletic scholarship was affected. I am constantly attending Continuing Legal Education seminars to stay up to date on any changes in the law that might affect any of my clients. My primary areas of practice are Divorce, Family Law, Real Estate, and Insurance Litigation. Most of my clients are concerned with what to do or what not to do when the first come to see me for a consultation or appointment. Their next concern is usually financial; what are they going to do now? How are they going to survive? I tell each client, based on their unique situation, what their options are and what will happen next. I am there for them from start to finish. The best part of my job is doing the work the client is too upset to do. While I understand the emotional roller-coaster clients go through, my experience allows me to step outside the emotion point of view, and use the law and facts to benefit my clients to the best of my ability. I was born in Oak Lawn, Illinois, was raised in Bridgeview up until college and now live in Lake County, Illinois with my family (my wife and three children.) I still have family in Bridgeview, Oak Lawn, and Orland Park. A little-known fact about me is that I love astronomy and anything to do with the stars and planets. In my free time, I tend to read a lot, usually late at night and play with my children and new Newfoundland puppy, Indy (Indiana Jones) I am admitted to practice law in Illinois and all Federal Courts including the Supreme Court of the Untied States of America. I treat my clients like friends. You can reach me at: (312) 648-6115 holwell.law@gmail.com chris@holwelllaw.com Linkedin: Christopher W. Holwell Facebook: Holwell Law Group, LLC
