How Norris & Callahan Fight Drug Possession Charges in Illinois

We have many ways to fight possession charges, whether those charges involve a felony or a misdemeanor. At the preliminary hearing after an arrest, we can argue for complete dismissal of the charges. If an illegal search occurred, we will assert your Fourth Amendment rights vigorously to have the evidence suppressed. There is also the option of taking the case all the way to trial or persuading the prosecution to for probation, which allows a client to avoid a felony record and therefore be able to honestly answer on a job application that they have never been convicted of a felony, let alone a crime at all. It would also not appear on a background check.

While it may seem that a small amount of drugs is not that awful, remember to think long term. What is in your best interest now if 10 years from now you want to coach children's baseball or a soccer team? If handled properly, this will be a speed bump and not a road block in your life and career.

Full Service Defense

When fighting drug possession charges, an attorney has to be ready to wage a war on more than one front. We offer a full service defense that includes assistance with all issues that could arise in your case, including:

  • Forfeiture - If the State is trying to take your car or other property, we can fight it for you.
  • Source of funds for bail: If posting bond gets complicated, let us help you through the procedural hurdles.

No two drug possession cases are exactly the same. The charges can vary dramatically, depending on the quantity of drugs involved, but even small amounts can come with serious consequences. But no matter how bad things look, remember this: We are committed to winning your case.
