Drugged Driving Defense Attorneys in Nashville, TN
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
In recent years, there has been an explosion of arrests and convictions involving driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs. Driving under the influence of drugs, also referred to as drugged driving or DUI of drugs, can result in jail time, fines, loss of driver's license, mandatory drug treatment, and other penalties. In addition, a drugged driving conviction on your record can prevent you from getting a job, a place to live, a professional license, or acceptance into a graduate school program.

Our Lawyers Are Experienced in Drugged Driving Defense
If you have been arrested, it is important to discuss your options with a criminal defense lawyer who knows how to help. We have successfully defended clients charged with DUI involving:
- Over-the-counter medication
You could be taking a prescription drug under a valid prescription and still be arrested for driving under the influence, if the arresting officer believes that the drug impaired your ability to drive.
Building a Compelling Case Against DUI of Drugs
A successful defense of drugged driving charges requires knowledge of the science involved in these cases. Our Nashville DUI attorneys work with respected experts in toxicology who can analyze the evidence, including toxicology reports, and determine if our client had taken a therapeutic or toxic level of the substance.
We will also carefully examine whether the police followed proper procedures during the traffic stop and arrest. If they performed field sobriety tests, for example, we will thoroughly evaluate whether the results they obtained are valid evidence upon which to pursue a conviction.
