Drug Possession Charges Do Not Have To Define Your Future

Possession of even a small amount of drugs can have big consequences. In Illinois, possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor. Possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana or any amount of any other drug is a felony and punishable by up to 30 years in the state penitentiary.

Depending on the amount and type of drug, you could be facing federal charges. With a conviction on your record, you may have difficulty getting student loans or qualifying for public housing.

Suppression Of Evidence And Other Defense Tactics

When you hire me to take on your case, I will complete a thorough review of your police records and any evidence obtained against you to ensure that your rights were upheld during your search, seizure and arrest. If police errors were made, I will file motions to suppress any illegally obtained evidence and fight to have your charges dropped or dismissed.

If the state has compelling evidence against you, I will negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain a favorable plea bargain. If the prosecutor's offer is unreasonable or you want to fight the charges in court, I have the experience and skill to protect your rights at trial.
