Mesa DUI with Drugs Attorneys

Tough Defense in the State of Arizona

If you were arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, you need to take quick action to protect your future. In Arizona, the prosecution does not need to prove that drugs impaired your ability to drive – they only need to prove that drugs were in your system while you were driving.

At McPhie Law, our Mesa DUI with drugs lawyers are highly experienced, having effectively handled thousands of cases. Our team of legal professionals has appeared in every court in the East Valley and has an intimate understanding of the rules, policies, and procedures of each one.

Let us put our inside knowledge to work for you – call (480) 771-7977 or contact us online today.

Drug DUI Penalties in Mesa

In Arizona, DUI with drug crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Should law enforcement find drugs or paraphernalia on you or in your vehicle when they stop you, you could face additional charges for possession.

Those found guilty of DUI with drugs can face a variety of consequences, including:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • License revocation
  • Probation
  • Counseling
  • MADD program

For the potential to avoid conviction and the associated penalties, it is crucial to speak with a team of qualified criminal defense lawyers as soon as possible. The right law firm can help you gather evidence and build a strong defense strategy on your behalf to reduce or dismiss your charges.

Have a Prescription? You Can Still Be Charged

There are two statues in Arizona that deal with driving under the influence of drugs. First, you may be arrested if a police officer believes you are impaired from virtually any substance – this includes not only alcohol and illegal drugs, but also prescription medication.

Second, you do not actually need to be impaired to be charged with a drugged-driving offense. Arizona state law also makes it illegal to drive with virtually any drug metabolites in your system, unless you have a valid prescription. Metabolites are essentially what is left over when your liver breaks down a substance. For some drugs like marijuana, the metabolites can stay in your system for weeks after use.

Although the DUI laws in Arizona are extremely harsh, you are not out of options if you have been charged. Even if the case against you is strong, our skilled Mesa criminal defense lawyers may be able to help you obtain a reduced sentence. In some cases, we may be able to get the charges dropped entirely.

Every case is unique, and you should never trust “one-size-fits-all” legal advice when your future is at stake.
