Fighting Drug Charges To Protect Your Future

Drug charges are serious matters whether you are facing a misdemeanor or felony drug violation. Having a drug conviction on your record can drastically limit your job options, your housing prospects and your educational goals.

If you have been arrested or charged with this type of offense, you need an attorney who is ready to mount an aggressive defense to protect your future. For over 35 years, I have skillfully advocated for my clients in East St. Louis and the Metro-East area. I am ready to challenge prosecutors in court and seek out the best result for you.

Equipped To Handle Misdemeanor And Felony Offenses

When you hire my firm, Scott B. Meyer Attorney at Law, I will move quickly to investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest and review any evidence collected by police. I am able to defend first-time and repeat offenders charged with offenses related to:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Opioids
  • Oxycodone and other prescription drugs

Using my substantial understanding of Illinois drug laws and the criminal process, I am equipped to handle a range of drug offenses that include:

  • Simple possession and possession with intent to sell or deliver
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing and cultivation
  • Drug distribution

I draw on decades of criminal law experience to tailor a strategy that supports your version of events and undercuts the prosecution’s arguments. My insight gives you an advantage in straightforward or complex cases. This level of experience is key if you have been charged with multiple offenses, such as allegedly having a gun in your possession in addition to a controlled substance or getting charged with a violent crime offense and a drug violation.
