Joliet - Will County, Illinois Drug Crimes Lawyer

 An arrest for a drug crime does not mean a conviction is automatic. You may believe that the so-called evidence is stacked against you. However, an experienced criminal defense attorney at The Law Firm of Rick Muñoz will investigate all aspects of your arrest and the events that led up to that life-changing moment.


Joliet Drug Possession Attorney - Protecting Your Rights


Search and seizure is a common issue that arises in drug possession or distribution cases. Key questions must be answered. Was the search of your car or house legal or illegal? Were warrants executed at the time of the search? Were you in possession of the drugs or were you near illegal narcotics that belonged to someone else?


An illegal search and seizure not only violates your rights, but could result in the evidence becoming inadmissible.


Common drugs seized during searches include:

  • Marijuana

  • Cocaine (powder and crack)

  • Heroin

  • Vicodin and other prescription medication
