Cocaine

Felony Drug Crimes

As a criminal defense lawyer in Chicago a major part of my practice is defending drug offenses including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, ecstasy and prescription drugs cases. People are charged with either possession, delivery, intent to deliver or manufacturing. Drug offenses are serious charges and carry sentences ranging from misdemeanor supervision up to decades in prison.
