An arrest for driving while ability impaired by drugs or controlled substances may be based purely on a smell or the officer’s suspicion, but often this is not reliable. It is important to hire a lawyer experienced in defending cases such as these. David W. Haber is a former felony prosecutor who understands how the prosecution will approach your case. We defend clients who are in possession of, or suspected of using controlled substances, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • OxyContin
  • Percocet
  • Valium
  • Heroin

After an arrest, a suspect may be given an assessment by a drug recognition expert (DRE) and/or a blood test. If you refuse to take the test, your license can be suspended or revoked, even if you are acquitted. As a former felony trial prosecutor, our attorney knows how to build a strong defense for his clients.

Consequences for a Conviction are Serious

The charges may be even more serious if you are suspected of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the same time.
