Driving Under the Influence of Drugs

Columbia, Missouri DUI Defense Lawyers

In Missouri, you can be charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) not only for driving while intoxicated by alcohol, but also for driving while under the influence of drugs.

Our attorneys have experience representing people who were pulled over for a routine traffic stop, brought in for a drug recognition exam and charged with DWI because the blood draw revealed the presence of prescription drugs. We have represented people who take antidepressants like Ambien to fight depression, who take Adderall to combat ADHD, or who are on some kind of painkiller because of a recent injury or illness. A valid prescription and a good reason for taking the medication do not negate these charges. These cases can be complex, but we know how to minimize the consequences.

The Consequences Of Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs in Missouri

A conviction for a drug DWI will result in similar penalties as a conviction for alcohol DWI. The biggest difference is that, if you are convicted of drug DWI, you may not be able to get a hardship license. In this way, the consequences are more severe, and it is all the more important to choose an experienced attorney. With more than 100 years of combined experience on our side, our Missouri attorneys defending against driving under the influence of drugs can help you prevent these consequences.
