In Illinois, a conviction for a felony Class X drug offense €”sale, manufacture, or possession with the intent to distribute of heroin, cocaine, LSD, morphine, or methamphetamine €”means considerable fines and a minimum sentence of at least six years. If there was a firearm involved, or it was within 1500 feet of a church, school, or public park, those penalties can double. At the law offices of Donahue, Sowa & Magana, we know the potential cost of drug charges. We will zealously defend you if you have been accused of a drug crime in Chicago or its suburbs.
Drug Arrest Defense Lawyers
The criminal defense attorneys are experienced in defending people accused of all Illinois drug felonies and misdemeanors--from possession of small amounts of marijuana (cannabis) to Super X felonies. We can defend you if you have been charged with:
- Possession of methamphetamine (crystal meth), cannabis, cocaine, heroin, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, and prescription drugs, including Vicodin, Valium, Ritalin, and Oxycontin
- Possession with Intent to Distribute
- Firearms possession
Donahue, Sowa & Magana is one of the oldest law firms in Illinois dedicated to criminal defense. We have a number of effective defense strategies and aggressively challenge the prosecutor's evidence using devices such as a motion to suppress evidence because of the questionable legality of a search warrant. In some instances, however, we are able to avoid traditional prosecution altogether in exchange for a lesser alternative such as drug court.
