Oak Brook Lawyers for Clients Charged With Drug Offenses

Any type of drug charge is a serious situation. The consequences of a drug conviction in the state of Illinois can be severe and, in many cases, life-changing. At McMahon Law Offices, our knowledgeable attorneys understand that when you are facing drug charges, you may feel isolated and overwhelmed, but there is hope. We are ready to advocate on your behalf no matter what type of charges you may be facing.

Our criminal defense team is comprised of former prosecutors and a former judge who are now committed to helping clients facing criminal charges in Northern Illinois. Over the last two decades, we have secured thousands of positive outcomes, including many in very complex drug-related cases. We take the time to get to know you and listen carefully to your needs. This allows us to build a customized defense based on your unique circumstances.

Legal Counsel for Controlled Substance Possession

Recent changes to the law in Illinois have drastically reduced the penalties associated with low-level possession of marijuana, but criminal prosecution is still possible depending on the amount in question. The laws regarding the possession and distribution of other drugs, however, remain in force and provide severe criminal penalties for those who are convicted. The aggressive defense lawyers at our firm regularly handle cases related to possession, sale, and trafficking of:

  • Cocaine and crack cocaine;
  • Methamphetamines;
  • Heroin;
  • Marijuana, more than 10 grams;
  • Ecstasy;
  • MDMA; and
  • Any other illicit or controlled substance.

Your charges and the potential consequences depend on the drug in question and the amount of the substance. Drug charges may range from misdemeanors all the way up to major felonies, with corresponding increases in the possible penalties.

Protecting Your Rights in Drug-Related Cases

In many drug-related cases, prosecutors rely heavily on the evidence seized at the time of your arrest. As a former DuPage County prosecutor, Attorney Michael McMahon recognizes the importance of protecting your Fourth Amendment rights. If the evidence against you was obtained through an illegal search, we will work to have the evidence suppressed and the related charged dismissed.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be eligible for diversion programs or other alternatives to a conviction, especially for your first offense. Such programs may limit the impact on your future and help you keep your record clean. Our attorneys will help you explore your available options and work with you in making an informed decision about how to proceed.
