Drug Crimes


Tim has handled several cases for me over the last 10+ years, and I continue to have him represent me to this day. From misdemeanors, to felony, to federal indictment Tim has been willing to work to whatever extent possible for me. He has, on a few occasions, even had impromptu meetings outside of normal business hours with friends of mine who found themselves in trouble. It is apparent that the well being of his clients is TOP PRIORITY. This, along with an incredibly assuring demeanor, diligent work ethic, and vast knowledge of the law make him my first choice as criminal defense attorney.

For effective criminal defense representation for your drug charges in the Portland, Maine, area, come to Zerillo Law Firm to discuss your case. Protect yourself and your freedom by making sure that you talk to a lawyer before you talk to the police, prosecution or any DEA or MDEA agent. We represent clients throughout Maine.


Whether you have been charged with trafficking drugs in Maine state courts or conspiracy to distribute drugs in federal court, we have the experience to effectively handle your case. We routinely represent clients who have been accused of a wide range of drug crimes, including:

  • Conspiracy
  • Drug cultivation
  • Drug possession
  • Drug trafficking
  • Furnishing drugs
  • Manufacturing drugs
  • Paraphernalia possession
  • Marijuana cultivation

When you need experienced criminal defense representation, come to our offices. We will aggressively defend your rights and protect your interests for all drug charges, including those involving marijuana, methamphetamine, crack, cocaine, fentanyl, meth, heroin and prescription drugs like Xanax, OxyContin and Vicodin (Hydrocodone).

Our office is well known in the Maine legal community – an attorney accused of felony drug trafficking recently sought our legal representation, knowing of our experience and skill. We were able to get the case dismissed before indictment, allowing the attorney to avoid jail time and potentially devastating career consequences.


Very often, drug crimes are charged because the police illegally obtained evidence. We have litigated motions in federal court and Maine courts to suppress that evidence as a result of illegal search warrants, illegal stops, drug dog cases, thermal imaging cases and more.

Protect Your Future!

To best protect your future and your freedom when you have been charged with a drug crime, you need the assistance of an experienced lawyer who is familiar with the criminal justice system.
