Do Prescription Drug Charges Demand a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Written by: The Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata

It is unfortunate the number of people that find themselves in a less than desirable situation because of prescription drugs. You can still be charged for a DUI with drugs even though these drugs have been properly prescribed by your doctor.

Why You Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have a DUI drug charge, there is no room for a rookie mistake during the handling of the case. Too many people have their lives turned upside down and deal with permanent consequences because of an innocent mistake. Snap decisions are made by police, who typically have no training to make such judgments. There are even times that arrests are made because of mental or medical conditions, but the arresting officer assumes it is a DUI drug situation.

There are numerous possibilities for error in these cases, especially because the so-called expert does not know how the person acts or appears without the use of their medication; so how can they judge them while they are on it?

This is a delicate matter. The right Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer can make sure your life is not adversely affected more than it already has with the arrest. Hiring an attorney without the proper qualification to handle such a case can mean a very different future than what you have planned.
