Have you been charged with Possession of Marijuana, Manufacture/Delivery of Cannabis, or Cannabis Trafficking?
If you have been charged with possessing, selling or distributing marijuana or cannabis, our Marijuana Drug Defense Attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss your charges as well as what legal rights you have.
Possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor offense if you have 30 grams or less. If you are charged with possessing more than 30 grams of cannabis, it is a felony offense which could involve prison sentences.
Our attorneys understand that having a marijuana conviction on your record could reflect negatively on employment applications or schooling. Don’t take a chance. The criminal defense lawyers at the Noll Law Office are experienced, aggressive attorneys who understand the potential penalties and ramifications related to marijuana charges. Whether you are charged with simple possession or are alleged to be a cannabis cultivator, it is important that you sit down with a criminal defense attorney to discuss the facts of your case and your constitutional rights.
DID THE POLICE FIND THE CANNABIS ILLEGALLY?
Our criminal defense attorneys investigate all of the facts and law regarding your case. Our lawyers review all cannabis cases to determine whether the police searched you, searched your home or searched your vehicle in accordance with the law. In some cases, if the authorities did not follow the proper procedures, the court is required to dismiss the case. Do you believe that the authorities improperly searched your home, your vehicle, or your person? Contact one of our criminal defense attorneys for a free initial consultation to discuss the facts of your case.
ALTERNATIVE SENTENCING OPTIONS: DO YOU THINK YOU QUALIFY FOR SUPERVISION, FIRST-OFFENDER PROBATION (1410 PROBATION), TASC PROBATION, BOOT CAMP (IMPACT INCARCERATION), OR DRUG COURT?
In addition to aggressive advocacy, our defense lawyers are familiar with alternative sentencing options available to help those accused of cannabis crimes. Under certain circumstances, individuals may qualify for court supervision, first offender probation (1410 probation), TASC probation, drug court, and boot camp (impact incarceration). Do you believe you qualify for one of these programs? Contact one of our criminal defense lawyers for a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
ARE YOU FACING A FELONY CANNABIS CHARGE? DO YOU WANT A MISDEMEANOR CHARGE INSTEAD?
Oftentimes, prosecutors overcharge cannabis cases. Our defense lawyers have been successful in getting the state’s attorney’s office to reduce charges or dismiss charges for clients who have been accused of possessing cannabis or selling marijuana.
It is important to hire a criminal defense lawyer who understands drug laws and has experience doing so. Our lawyers know that the law requires certain factors to be present in order to demonstrate the intent to sell cannabis. If those factors are not present in your case, you may be overcharged and facing charges above your culpable conduct.
Our lawyers have successfully defended clients who were charged with selling marijuana but only possessed the cannabis for personal use. If you believe that you have been improperly charged,contact one of our Marijuana drug defense lawyers for a free initial consultation.
NOLL LAW OFFICE RESULTS
People v. A.J. (2013)
A.J. was arrested and charged with Manufacture/Delivery of Cannabis. He was questioned as he waited to board an Amtrak in Springfield. After he was asked what was in his bag, A.J. responded, “An ounce of weed.” The officer then took the bag and found 2 pounds of marijuana. Our defense lawyer filed a motion to suppress the evidence arguing that the officer illegally searched the bag and failed to obtain a warrant. The judge agreed and threw out all of the evidence. All charges were DISMISSED.

This was a state drug case. J.O. was pulled over on the side the highway(I-55) by Illinois State Police. Law enforcement searched the defendant’s vehicle and found 500 pounds of marijuana.
