Charged With DUI Drugs Conviction? We Can Help.
Under Georgia law, “A person shall not drive while under the influence of any drug to the extent that it is less safe for the person to drive.” Whether a person is drinking alcohol or under the influence of a drug, it is an illegal act, and law enforcement officers will treat it as such. It doesn’t matter if the drug in question is illegal or a prescription drug. If a driver’s impaired state puts others at risk, the result is the same: A charge of driving under the influence.
People are often surprised to find that they are not allowed to drive while taking a drug they have a valid prescription for. They may even need that drug to properly function. Be warned, if a prescription drug makes you feel drowsy or inattentive, it may be dangerous to drive under its influence.

Challenging Police Evidence
If an officer suspects you may be driving under the influence of marijuana, pain relievers or some other drug, he or she may subject you to a number of field sobriety tests. These tests are designed to measure your nervous system response and general physical capabilities. Unfortunately, these tests are not always fair or administered properly. If your rights were violated during any point of the stop or arrest, it may be possible to get the charges dismissed. Our attorneys aggressively seek out the facts to help our clients avoid the harsh consequences of a DUI drugs conviction.
