Los Angeles DUI Drugs Lawyer

Last Modified: February 26, 2024

Many people who are arrested for driving under the influence of drugs are shocked to find out that they may be convicted of a crime for driving while under the influence of a legal drug. In California, drivers may be convicted of driving under the influence if their driving is impaired by illegal drugs or prescription medications. Even drivers who have a valid prescription for a medication may be convicted of driving under the influence.

Drivers who are under the influence of marijuana and other illegal drugs are likewise shocked to learn that they can be arrested for driving under the influence even if they used drugs several days prior to driving. Since marijuana and other drugs may remain in a person’s system for an extended period of time, a chemical test may show traces of the drug several days after it was taken.

DUI Drug Charges in Los Angeles

While California’s DUI laws may seem to be stacked against you, there are ways that our Los Angeles DUI attorneys can raise a strong defense on your behalf. Our DUI attorneys can review the facts of your case and find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case that can be used to your advantage.

  • The state must prove that you were “under the influence.” It must establish that you were unable to drive in a safe manner.
  • If you took drugs several days ago or you took a prescription medication that has not impaired your driving, the prosecution may have difficulty establishing your guilt to a jury.
  • We can challenge the scientific evidence in the case, including the veracity of evidence obtained from a urine test or blood test.
  • The police may have thought you were impaired by drugs because you were suffering from an illness, injury, allergies, lack of sleep or other factor.
