DWI With Drugs
Many people automatically associate “driving while intoxicated” with those driving after drinking a substantial amount of alcohol. However, getting behind the wheel with any drug in your system leaves you liable to be pulled over and charged with a DWI. This is not just limited to illegal drugs like marijuana or cocaine, either: medications or drugs legally prescribed to you by a doctor that affect your reaction time or mental state are classified as “intoxicating” under the law. Furthermore, if you are pulled over and accused of driving under the influence of drugs, you could also be liable for additional drug charges, such as possession or having drug paraphernalia in your car.

How A DWI Conviction Will Impact Your Life
Here’s what may happen if your DWI case goes the wrong way:
- You could lose your license.
- Your insurance rates may increase or be outright canceled.
- You could face heavy fines.
- You could spend time in jail.
What We Do
The first thing that we do is talk to the client to find out what happened just prior to getting pulled over. We ask many important questions so that we know what parts of the DWI case that we can attack. We always check to make sure that the stop of the vehicle was done in accordance of the law and was not an unlawful stop.
We then check to make sure that the officer properly conducted the field sobriety tests and that the breathalyzer was properly maintained. If any of these areas are done improperly, we go on attack and try to fight the DWI case.
What to Expect
Depending on the facts of your case and criminal history, we may be able to negotiate a deal with the prosecutor to plead to a lesser charge. Otherwise, we will begin preparing for trial to prove you are not guilty.
