There are many strong possibilities for a good defense against charges of DUI related to drugs. The reality is that unlike alcohol-related DUI, drug-related DUI cases involve much less certainty regarding impairment. Even if someone comes back with test results that show they had used marijuana or another substance at some point, it can be very difficult to show that the person was impaired at the time of the arrest.
This means that the police will have to present evidence of poor driving and other indicators that the person was high at that time, such as smelling marijuana in the car.
I understand how to take these cases and make them even more difficult for prosecutors. I will question every assumption and every questionable piece of evidence the prosecution puts forward.

Many people assume if they are taking prescription drugs and they are pulled over, that there is no issue. The police may still decide you are impaired and charge you with DUI. I can help you fight charges related to driving while on prescription medications.
