DUI & Drug Possession

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is a serious criminal charge which can result in loss of your driver's license, fines, substance abuse counseling, community service, and even imprisonment.

This offense may be prosecuted with or without any direct evidence of a person's Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). The determining factor is whether a person's ability to drive has been impaired.

It is important to understand that there are two parts to most DUI cases. Even if you are found not guilty in a criminal case, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will seek to impose suspension and sometimes revocation of your privilege to operate a motor vehicle. The DMV will also require you to install and maintain an ignition interlock device in your car as well. It is for this reason that it is important to hire an attorney who can represent you at both your criminal case as well as your DMV hearing.

Drug Offenses

When charged with a drug related crime, it is important to hire an attorney. Just because you have been charged with a drug related crime does not mean you are guilty. In this area of the law it is often that the government abuses its power. The wrongful policy of some is: Accuse first and ask questions later.

Some common drug related charges are as follows. If you have been charged with any of them, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.
