DUI Drug Attorneys In Las Vegas, Nevada
In Nevada, DUI is not just for drinking and driving. You may be charged with DUI if you are under the influence of a controlled substance such as cocaine, methamphetamine or marijuana. Furthermore, if you are taking prescription medications that cause drowsiness, dizziness or even mental confusion, you may be charged with DUI. Drugs such as Lortab, oxycodone, Xanax, muscle relaxants, painkillers and other strong narcotic prescription drugs may give rise to a DUI charge in Nevada.
In Las Vegas, DUI drug cases hinge upon the ability of the prosecution to prove that the driver was under the influence of drugs and that his or her abilities were impaired. Drug Recognition Evaluators (DREs) are often brought in on DUI drug cases in order to thoroughly test a driver and determine whether he or she is under the influence of drugs. The DRE may check the driver's blood pressure, pulse and pupil size and will check the arms for recent injection sites. The DRE will also conduct field sobriety tests in a controlled, well-lit environment (unlike a typical DUI arrest, where the officer will conduct roadside field sobriety tests). Additionally, a blood test will be administered in order to check for the presence of drugs.
No matter the outcome of these specific tests, or how "open and shut" your DUI drug case may seem at first glance, it is essential to consult a Las Vegas DUI lawyer as soon as possible. When you work with our defense lawyer, we will draw upon our experience in this area in order to help you avoid a conviction. We understand that entirely innocent drivers are arrested for driving under the influence of drugs simply because they are tired or nervous, signs that a police officer can mistake for a driver on drugs.
An experienced Las Vegas DUI/Drug attorney will be able to thoroughly evaluate the circumstances of your arrest, conduct an independent analysis of your blood results and investigate all the evidence pertaining to your case. In doing so, our attorneys will look for any and all proof that your abilities were not impaired, that your test results were inaccurate or that your rights were not violated. This will help us prove, in or out of court, that you were not driving under the influence of drugs.
The only thing worse than being charged with DUI in Las Vegas is having to face the charges by yourself, which unfortunately many clients find out for themselves when it's too late. Having no one to turn to for counsel and guidance can be scary, but fortunately this is easily alleviated. When hiring a Las Vegas DUI attorney from The Law Offices of Parviz A.
