If you are stopped and arrested for driving under the influence of drugs (DUID), it is important to find a defense attorney who will provide aggressive and rapid representation. At the Reading, Pennsylvania, office of Emkey Law Firm, we vigorously defend clients against DUI drug charges. We know the strategies that are most likely to secure favorable results for clients.
We have defended clients against charges of driving under the influence of a wide range of controlled substances, including:
Berks County criminal defense attorney, Daniel Emkey has handled countless DUID cases from both the prosecutor's and defendant's sides. This experience has given our firm knowledge of how police officers work when conducting traffic stops and administering field sobriety tests. This leads to an ability to identify flaws in the prosecution's case that can help us obtain good outcomes for our clients.
The penalties for conviction on a DUID are similar to those used in DUI cases. There are significant consequences, especially if it is not a first-time offense. Our goal is to have the case dismissed entirely. If that is not possible, we work hard to negotiate lower charges and obtain alternative penalties to keep our client out of jail.
We help clients apply for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. This allows people charged with a first-time DUID to avoid having criminal convictions on their records. It is important to have a lawyer who will stay in contact during the ARD period — if something goes wrong, we can help you resolve the problem and stay on track to complete the program.
We seek to have charges dismissed whenever possible. We examine the circumstances of your traffic stop and determine if the police officer had adequate justification for the stop and did not violate your rights. We find that people charged with DUID involving prescription drugs often have no idea that they might have committed a crime or even that they might have been impaired. This is a complex area, but we have succeeded in having charges dismissed or reduced in numerous cases.
