DUI of Drugs Attorney Seattle, WA

DUI Cases Involving Drugs

The crime of driving under the Influence (DUI) also includes driving while impaired by drugs. Drivers can be charged with a DUI involving drugs for the use of illegal substances as well as prescription drugs. Most DUI cases involving drugs are based on the subjective evaluation of the arresting officer. Recently, law enforcement has begun using drug recognition experts who have been trained to evaluate DUI drug suspects.

The penalties in a DUI drug case are similar to cases involving intoxication. They include:

  • Probation
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Chemical dependency evaluation and treatment
  • Mandatory drug education and counseling
  • Required attendance at a DUI victim's panel
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Community service

DUI Heroes is a reliable DUI firm that provides skilled representation to clients charged with a DUI that involves drugs. Our founder is a proven Seattle DUI attorney who has received extensive DUI training through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration - the same courses taken by police. He is extremely adept at challenging DUI test results and subjective assessments of a person's alleged drug impairment.

DUI Lawyer in Seattle

Unlike DUI arrests for intoxication in which a person is considered legally drunk if their blood alcohol content is .08% or higher, there is no established limit for drug use. Sometimes blood tests will detect the presence of drugs in a person's system, but it is usually police observation and the outcome of field sobriety testing that determines if a person will be charged with drug-related DUI. Our firm will attack every weakness in the prosecution's case and ardently protect your rights.

Contact a Seattle DUI attorney at the firm if you have been charged with a DUI involving drugs for immediate representation and seasoned legal counsel.
