Handling Drugged Driving Cases From Start To Finish

If police have any reason to suspect your driving is impaired, they may suspect you're driving under the influence of alcohol or another substance. Even if you've only had one drink, having medication in your system can hinder your ability to operate a vehicle.

In these instances, you'll most likely still be charged with driving under the influence. As an experienced attorney with over four decades of experience, I have helped clients across Abington and throughout Montgomery County deal with drug DUI cases.

Smart Drug DUI Defense, Coupled With Years Of Experience

Typically, police officers are concerned with alcohol and an elevated blood alcohol content (BAC). However, both illegal drugs and prescription medication can impair your ability to drive.

At my firm, I assist clients who have been arrested for driving under the influence of:

  • Marijuana
  • Prescription medication such as Valium, Vicodin and Xanax and other opioids
  • Sleeping pills
  • Antidepressants
  • Cocaine
  • Morphine, fentanyl and heroin

Even if you have a prescription, you may still be cited for driving under the influence, depending on the police officer's perceived level of impairment. The methods of testing can vary from the standard Breathalyzer — for example, officers may ask for a blood test. Nevertheless, the penalties are just as severe. An experienced lawyer can walk you through the charges, examine your situation and help you craft a comprehensive defense strategy.

Have Experience On Your Side

For over 40 years, I have been successfully defending people against DUI charges in Pennsylvania. A sampling of my DUI case results shows what I have been able to achieve for my clients.

In any DUI situation, it's smart not to plead guilty without talking to me first. You can arrange a free initial consultation by calling 267-415-6130 or by contacting my office.
