Driving Under the Influence of Drugs in Florida

Florida DUI (driving under the influence) charges do not only relate to alcohol. Although a far less common occurrence, a driver may face DUI charges involving drugs. Under Florida DUI law, it is unlawful for a driver to operate a motor vehicle while his or her normal faculties are impaired due to controlled substance.

There are actually various ways to challenge the evidence in a Miami DUI of drugs case, and with his extensive knowledge and resources to experts in forensics, medicine and other related fields, DUI lawyer Michael Mirer can evaluate all aspects of your case to determine how to best address your charges.

For example:

  • Was there a problem with or mistake made in the administration of a blood or urine test used to determine whether you had a controlled substance in your system?
  • Were field sobriety tests conducted properly?

Attorney Mirer can use circumstances such as these to file motions to suppress evidence or to otherwise positively affect your case and weaken the prosecution's evidence.
