Successfully Defending Against Drug Charges

Drug laws in Illinois are broad and extensive. You can be charged with possession, possession with intent to deliver, deliver, manufacturing, drug trafficking, prescription fraud and other charges. Depending on the circumstances of the crime, individuals can be charged under state or federal laws. The type of drug involved in the crime and the quantity of that drug are the primary factors in determining the severity of the charges. Aggravating factors such as the use of a weapon or operating inside a protected zone can increase potential penalties for convictions.

The penalties for drug crimes vary from court supervision or probation to many years in prison. No matter how serious the charge, however, it is always wise to hire an experienced defense attorney to pursue the best possible outcome. In many drug cases, evidence is linked to either a search warrant or a physical search. Determining if the search was legal and properly executed is a key aspect of defending against drug charges.

He has successfully defended clients against drug charges both in private practice and as a public defender.
