Criminal Defense for Drug Crimes


When you’re facing drug charges – and the serious potential penalties that go along with them – you need an attorney who knows more than just the law. Your lawyer must also have the experience to stand up for you in court and negotiate a favorable deal with the prosecutor, when appropriate. Most importantly, your lawyer must handle your case with the seriousness it deserves. Our Chicago criminal drug crime defense attorneys excel in all of these areas.

Defense lawyer Martin Quintana has spent his entire career – more than a decade – helping people fight back against even the toughest drug charges. A successful trial lawyer, Mr. Quintana is also a dedicated advocate who will treat your case as though it were his only one. After listening to your story and gathering all the relevant information, he will walk you through your options for getting the best outcome possible. And we don’t stop there. We care about your criminal record and will work hard to get your record expunged or sealed, preventing the public and potential employers from accessing it.

Extensive Experience In State And Federal Courts
We handle all types of state and federal drug charges throughout Cook County and DuPage County, Illinois, including:

  • Possession of marijuana

  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession with intent to traffic drugs

The consequences for drug crimes can be severe, especially if you’re facing a felony. You can also end up with harsher penalties for possession of a firearm or possession/sale near a school zone, college, youth facility, church, public park or other protected areas. We’ll work hard to minimize the impact of the charges on all aspects of your life, from your freedom to your reputation to your immigration status.
