Garrett T. Ogata handles cases involving DUI drugs, not just alcohol
Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/12/2013 -- While most people associate being arrested for a DUI with alcohol, the term “DUI drugs” has been coined to name the offense of driving while under the influence of drugs, and it’s becoming a bigger and bigger problem. Las Vegas DUI lawyer Garrett T. Ogata and his associates offer a range of services to Sin City residents who have been arrested for DUI drugs.
In Nevada, it is illegal to drive under the influence of any controlled substance, including prescription drugs or medications. Breathalyzers can tell the police whether a person’s BAC is above the legal limit, but there is no breathalyzer for marijuana or prescription medications that a person may be affected by. A strong criminal defense lawyer can be especially important in these cases in that the defendant may be able to prove that there was an error in the police officer’s judgment. Having defended numerous people in the Las Vegas area against charges of DUI drugs, the lawyers at Garrett T. Ogata are “knowledgeable about the shortcomings of the system” and will be able to find out more about a defendant and his or her case than a brief encounter with a police officer would reveal.
In addition to taking on DUI drugs cases, the attorneys at Garret T. Ogata defend people against drunk driving arrests. In both types of arrests, the defense lawyer takes the time to look at the person’s story and background, as well as the initial details of the arrest, forming a complete picture of the situation. Though the NHTSA is working on developing better ways of telling whether a driver is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, Ogata ensures that clients get a solid criminal defense at their hearing in the meantime.
