Extensive Experience Handling Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs Charges

Driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) is a serious crime. If you have been accused of DUID, you need the protection of a competent and knowledgeable attorney. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of their rights. If your ability to function is compromised by drugs — legal or illegal — you may not drive. Being under the influence of prescription drugs is not a legitimate defense.

The most crucial issue in any DUID case is whether or not the driver was indeed "under the influence." It is important to exercise your right to remain silent. Any explanation about being under the influence of a prescription drug can be used against you as an admission of guilt.
