We defend DUI cases related to drug usage in Washington state.
In Washington, as in most states, you can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) for driving after consuming alcohol or drugs. The legal process that results from a drug-related DUI is different in some ways from a DUI for alcohol. Your best chance at reaching a successful resolution is to secure representation from a lawyer experienced with drug-related DUIs.
Do I need experienced defense when dealing with a drug related DUI?
Recognition of driving under the influence of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines or other drugs requires the specialized training of a drug recognition expert (DRE). Driving under the influence of narcotics arrests are based on the opinion of the DRE and the results of a blood test. We are familiar with the requirements of a DRE and the procedures they follow.
Due to our lead criminal defense attorneys’ experience as former criminal prosecutors, we have the ability to anticipate the prosecutor’s legal strategy and build a strong case in your defense against these charges.
