Understand DUI-Drugs Allegations

The major difference between DUID and typical DUI involving alcohol is the way evidence is collected and used. Breath tests and field sobriety tests are the usual evidence in a regular DUI case. Drug-related DUI charges, on the other hand, usually involve urine tests and/or blood tests administered after the arrest. Our lawyers look for opportunities to challenge this evidence by finding out:

  • Whether the urine or blood tests were properly administered;
  • Whether the evidence could have been contaminated; and/or
  • Whether the legally required chain of custody was broken

You must also remember that a DUID case will likely involve other drug charges as well. In addition, you may be facing a driver's license suspension. One of the strengths of DiLorenzo & Rush is our ability to handle all of these issues on behalf of our clients, whether they are in New Jersey or New York.
