Chicago and Dallas/Ft. Worth Drug Possession Lawyers

Every single year, thousands of Americans find themselves faced with drug possession charges. This has been the case ever since our country waged the “War on Drugs”. While some of these charges are serious and involve large amounts of drugs, others are related to very small amounts of controlled substances either in their possession or another person’s. Regardless of what the situation is, it is possible to fight possession charges and receive a lesser, more favorable outcome.

Understanding Possession Charges

A possession charge (whether it was your first or third) can have a significant effect on your life. While we cannot promise what the result will be, we can promise you that we will do everything we can to represent and defend you. If you have been accused of drug possession in Texas or Illinois, please contact Toro Law today and ask to speak with one of our criminal lawyers. We speak fluent English and Spanish and are prepared to do everything we can in your defense.

A drug possession charge is defined as “the knowing exercise of control and ownership over a controlled substance in sufficient quantities to trigger a relevant local, state, or federal law.” Depending on the case, a possession charge could result in the following:

  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Loss of a driver’s license
  • Imprisonment

Different states and communities have various sentencing guidelines when it comes to repeated crimes. For example, if you have been arrested for possession in Texas multiple times, you have a much greater chance of facing a harsher sentence than someone who is arrested for possession for the first time. To learn more about the specific circumstances surrounding your possession charge, please contact Toro Law today. With our help, a possession charge will likely not end in a criminal sentence. However, it may mar your record and show up on background checks.
