Drug possession and other drug crimes are some of the most common cases prosecuted in state and federal courts.

Zerillo Law Firm is well-known in the state for our legal excellence and outstanding service in handling all drug crimes, even the most serious and complex federal cases.
State & Federal Drug Crimes We Handle
All drug crimes are serious, carrying the potential for jail or prison time and fines. If you are charged with a federal drug crime, these are generally even more serious due to their harsh sentencing guidelines.
Zerillo Law Firm represents clients accused of a wide range of drug offenses, including:
- Drug possession
- Drug paraphernalia possession
- Marijuana possession and cultivation
- Drug distribution
- Drug manufacture
- Drug trafficking
These crimes may be related to marijuana, methamphetamine, crack, cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, and other street drugs, as well as the unauthorized possession and distribution of prescription drugs such as opioids like OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax, and more.
Depending on the circumstances, drug crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies ranging from a Class E misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 to a Class A felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000. How they are charged is based on the class of drug, prior convictions, and any other aggravating circumstances. Maine categorizes drugs into four classes with Class W including such substances as heroin and cocaine as the most serious.
Just because you have been charged with a drug offense does not mean you will necessarily be convicted. Our firm has a strong track record of wins in court. When your freedom and future are on the line, we urge you to contact Zerillo Law Firm for exceptional legal service.
