Facing charges for possession of cocaine? Contact us!

Even if you are caught carrying or selling small amounts of cocaine, you may still be facing serious legal penalties.

Specific charges of cocaine range from:

  • Possession
  • Sale
  • Distribution
  • Manufacture
  • Intent to distribute
  • Trafficking

If you are found with 900+ grams of cocaine, you may be sentenced anywhere from ten to 50 years in jail and fines up to $200,000 or the full street value. With our experience, however, our DuPage County drug crime lawyers know how to challenge your drug charges and potentially either minimize or eliminate said charges. We can challenge the legality of the drug search or prove that you had no knowledge of the drugs found in your possession. For first-time offenders who are facing charges involving small amounts of cocaine, we could fight for probation or drug school instead of jail time and fines.
