Are You Charged With A Prescription Drug Crime? Our Wheaton Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Help.

Strong Defense Against Prescription Drug Crime Charges

Prescription drug charges need to be taken very seriously. Even though painkillers such as OxyContin and oxycodone are legal when obtained with a prescription, it is a felony to possess these drugs without a prescription.

At Marquardt & Belmonte, P.C., we are six former felony prosecutors who defend people accused of drug crimes in the DuPage County area. Using our 115 years of combined criminal law experience, our lawyers will work to keep you out of jail, reduce the charges or even get the charges dismissed altogether.

Former Prosecutors Providing Skilled Criminal Defense

Many doctors freely prescribe opiate-based painkillers, often for injuries sustained in an accident. Unfortunately, many people become addicted to painkillers. When the prescription runs out, they may turn to illegal sources for the drugs.

When you retain us to represent you, we will evaluate all possible defenses available to you, including issues with the search and seizure of drug evidence. Even if police have a strong case, we can pursue other defense strategies such as persuading the state to view your prescription drug possession as an addiction to be treated rather than a crime to be punished.

Our goal is to keep your drug arrest from having negative consequences on your life. A drug conviction can affect your ability to gain employment or obtain a professional license. If you are a student, it can affect your ability to obtain student loans. No one should plead guilty to a drug crime without speaking to an experienced defense lawyer.
