Experienced Salt Lake City DUI Drugs Attorney Ready to Take Your Case

Reputable Legal Counsel Who Understands Drug Related Traffic Stops

Laws regarding driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) are not limited to drivers that are intoxicated on alcohol. Many people do not realize it, but someone driving under the influence of drugs, either illegal or prescription, can also be arrested on charges for DUI or DWI. Some states, like Utah, go so far as to mandate that you can be arrested for a narcotics DUI even if the drugs in question are not presently affecting you. A reputable DUI attorney who practices in the jurisdiction where you are charged can help you mount a defense against a DUI arrest, regardless of whether alcohol or drugs were involved. In the states of Utah, Colorado or Nebraska, the Law Offices of Carl N. Anderson, III, PLLC can provide such a defense.

Both Illegal and Legal Drugs Can Trigger A DUI Drugs Arrest

It is against the law to drive while under the influence of several types of illegal and legal drugs in the state of Utah. Regardless of whether or not drugs are impacting your ability to drive at the time you are stopped, you can be arrested in Salt Lake City or elsewhere if metabolites of these drugs are found in your system, including:

  • Illegal drugs
    • Cocaine
    • Heroin
    • Marijuana
    • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription drugs
    • Percocet
    • Vicodin
    • Loratab
    • Soma
    • Ambien
    • Oxycontin

How a DUI Attorney Can Protect Your Rights

A reputable, experienced DUI drugs attorney can fight for a reduction of your DUI charges in many ways, even in cases of narcotic DUIs, by:

  • Proving the traffic stop that yielded your DUI arrest was executed improperly or involved searches and seizures that violate your Fourth Amendment rights
  • Proving the police coerced a DUI confession, which can be found inadmissible in court
  • Negotiating to have your sentence reduced to a rehabilitation program instead of jail time or fines, even in cases with completely valid DUI stops
