Oak Brook Lawyers for Clients Charged Drug Possession or Intent to Deliver

If you are charged with drug possession or possession with intent to deliver, it can change your life forever. The criminal consequences can be serious, and the effect on your personal and professional reputation can be extremely damaging. Over the last several years in Illinois, penalties for certain, low-level possession charges have been reduced, but those who manufacture, distribute, and sell illegal drugs still face lengthy prison sentences and expensive fines. At McMahon Law Offices, we understand the severity of drug possession and intent to deliver charges, and you can depend on us to fight for you.

Legal Counsel for Drug Possession Charges in Lombard

Recent changes to the law in Illinois have eliminated criminal prosecution for the possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana. Under the state's medical marijuana program, those who have been approved are also exempt from criminal prosecution. Criminal charges, however, are possible for those suspected of possessing more than 10 grams of marijuana or any amount of any other illegal drug. Our experienced drug crime defense lawyers have the knowledge and skill to help you protect your future when you are facing drug possession charges.

The criminal defense attorneys at McMahon Law Offices are former prosecutors who are now dedicated to advocating for the rights of clients throughout DuPage County. We carefully investigate the circumstances of your arrest, looking for any details that can be used in building an aggressive, comprehensive defense no matter what charges have been brought against you.

Elmhurst Lawyers for Intent to Deliver Charges

According to the law in Illinois, selling or distributing drugs is called "delivery," and includes any transfer or attempted transfer of an illicit substance to another person. There is no requirement for money to change hands in the process. A completed sale or transfer is considered "delivery of a controlled substance." Intent to deliver, by comparison, is often more complicated. Such charges are generally based on the amount of a drug or drugs and how they have been stored or prepared. Depending on the type of substance and the amount, delivery and possession with intent to deliver may be charged as a Class X felony, which could result in up to 30 years to life in prison.
