Legal Counsel for Controlled Substance Crimes

There has been much debate in the last few years regarding the use of marijuana throughout Illinois. While recent changes to the law have instituted a statewide medical marijuana program and eliminated criminal penalties for low-level possession of marijuana, possession and distribution of illicit substances are still illegal. At our firm, we are equipped to handle cases involving possession, possession with intent to distribute, and trafficking of:

  • Marijuana, in excess of 10 grams;
  • Cocaine and crack cocaine;
  • Heroin;
  • Methamphetamines;
  • Ecstasy; and
  • Prescription drugs without a valid prescription.

The severity of the charges and associated penalties depend on the type and the amount of the substance in question and can range from a misdemeanor to a major felony offense.

Protecting Your Rights for Drug-Related Crimes

In many cases, especially those involving simple possession, the most convincing evidence against you would be any drugs or illicit materials seized at the time of your arrest. As a former military police officer and DuPage County prosecutor, Mr. O'Donnell understands that your Fourth Amendment rights must be protected. If the evidence against you was seized during an illegal search or a warrant was improperly issued, he will fight to have the evidence suppressed and the charges against you dismissed altogether.

Mr. O'Donnell is also prepared to negotiate with prosecutors to limit the impact to your future, particularly if this is your first offense. You may be eligible for diversion programs and other alternatives that allow you to avoid the permanent damage of a conviction.
