Know What to Expect in the Event of an Arrest
A DUI can change your life. Our goal as your DUI defense team is to help
you get the best possible results for your case. Many factors are considered
when charging a DUI, and we can evaluate your case to determine the best
way to proceed.
- A key point in your case will revolve around a standard of impairment, meaning:
- How impaired were you at the time of the incident? Regardless of drug type
in your system, if your reaction time has been compromised, an arrest
- This standard is most harsh for marijuana users. If you are pulled over
and have 2 nanograms, that's two-billionths of a gram, of THC in your
system, you are legally considered impaired and can be arrested.
- For other illegal drugs, such as heroin, PCP and LSD, the standard is much
higher. Sadly, all three require a fatal overdose to be per se DUI.
- Chemical testing is used to establish impairment in a DUI drug case.
If you are arrested, your driver's license won't be suspended until
the tests come back. Without a positive result, your arresting officer
and the court has no way of proving whether or not the drug was in your
system at the time of the arrest.

Our attorney is rated AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®. This
rating is evidence of our consistently personalized attention and high
standard of achieving the best possible results. We know your options

There are many procedural tactics to use in any DUI case. After our initial

and diversion programs to help avoid or reduce charges. Occasionally,
in the case of an addiction, the court looks favorably upon an individual's
willingness to receive treatment. If that is not an effective strategy
in your case, we are more than capable of taking your case to court.
Don't let this mistake ruin your life. Having a proactive criminal
defense attorney on your side can completely define your future.
