Defending Against Drug DUI Charges
The term “driving under the influence” has long been synonymous with drunk driving. Today, DUI can be charged in cases involving a driver alleged to be under the influence of drugs, including marijuana, narcotics and prescription drugs. While similar to DUI cases involving alcohol, these cases are best handled by a defense attorney who is willing to think outside the box and pull out all the stops to minimize exposure to harsh criminal penalties.

No Such Thing As .08 In Drug DUI Cases
The math is different – actually nonexistent – in drug DUI cases. Unlike a DUI for driving under the influence of alcohol, officers have much more discretion when it comes to a driver suspected of being under the influence of drugs. The good news is that police are not perfect. They are human and make mistakes. Our experienced lawyers know how to leverage those mistakes and build a strong defense that can withstand the rigors of a criminal trial and the scrutiny of a jury.
The prosecution will likely be basing their case off the accounts and evidence gathered by law enforcement such as a police officer or state patrol officer. This can include things such as your alleged admittance of drug use, your personal appearance, manner of movement or speech, erratic driving, or poor performance during a field sobriety test. Such evidence is ripe for embellishment and human error, providing our attorneys with an opportunity to question the evidence and possibly have it suppressed so it cannot be used against you. No matter the specifics of your case, having an experienced attorney is a crucial part of getting the best possible outcome.
