Joliet Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

Because marijuana laws have been weakened in some states, there are college students who think possessing or even selling pot is not illegal in Illinois. They are stunned to learn that it is not only illegal, but an arrest has the potential to derail their college education and eventual careers.

The same is true for all illegal drugs: cocaine, Ecstasy, methamphetamines, LSD, heroin, and illegal prescription drugs like Vicodin and Adderall. It is even illegal to have legal prescriptions, issued by a physician, on your person if they are not in the original labeled container.

At The Law Office of Dawn R. Underhill, we defend people of all ages who have been charged with drug offenses. Offenses include possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution, cultivation, manufacture and trafficking in any of these illegal substances. We also defend people charged with possession in a school zone, doctor shopping and possession of drug paraphernalia.

We work with students at local colleges:

  • Governors State University
  • Lewis University
  • University of St. Francis
  • Joliet Junior College
  • Aurora University
  • North Central College
