Drugs And DUI Defense Attorney For Henry County
Lawyers at Lawson and Berry have been practicing DUI law for more than 2 decades. Our lead attorney has over 20 years experience in the field. Through our collected experiences we have gained insight into the patterns of Henry County DUI arrests. Over the past few years more and more DUI arrests are related to drugs. We believe this has a lot to do with the aging of the general population and the wide range of prescription drugs on the market. These days medications are available to help people suffering from everything from diabetes to anxiety to ADHD and depression. It's understandable that given the large amount of people taking prescription medications daily, the numbers of drug related DUI arrests would increase accordingly.
Fortunately, drug related DUI cases are much harder to prove in Henry County courts than alcohol related DUI cases, and this is a huge advantage to our clients. DUI drug arrests are not based on scientifically derived levels of impairment and even blood tests can be questioned. If a blood test shows high levels of a prescription drug in the person's system, a crime lab witness or toxicologist will not be able to say for sure that the elevated drug level meant that person's driving was impaired.
If you are arrested for a drug related DUI, call Lawson and Berry immediately. Your case will be a priority and your DUI defense lawyer will initiate action quickly to defend you. They will give your case an in-depth analysis and advise you what to do next and what you can expect to happen going forward.
