Elgin, Illinois Drug Possession Attorney
Drug Defense Lawyer in Kane County
Unlawful possession of a controlled substance is a very serious offense in Illinois. The possession of even a minimal amount of such drugs as heroin or cocaine can result in a fine of up to $25,000 and/or up to three years in state prison. As the quantity of the drug goes up, so does the severity of the charge. If the quantity is large enough, you can be charged with other more serious crimes.
If you are facing charges for any type of drug possession offense, it is critical that you seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. I am Brian J. Mirandola, and I have defended countless clients in possession cases involving cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, cannabis, and prescription drugs. As your Elgin drug possession defense lawyer, I will do everything in my power to protect your rights and avoid a conviction.
Illinois Drug Possession Charges
The law is clear with regard to a law enforcement official's authority when conducting a drug possession investigation. If he or she oversteps the boundaries of that authority, it can constitute a violation of your rights and may provide the keys to your freedom. When you hire my firm, I work closely with you to fully understand the details of your case.
If drugs were found in your car or in your home, I will work to determine if the officer had probable cause to conduct the search. If I find any indication that your rights may have been violated, I will take immediate action to have the charges dismissed. If a dismissal is out of reach, I will work to suppress any evidence that was obtained illegally and present a strong defense designed to protect your interests to the fullest possible extent.
