Franklin Controlled Substance DUI Defense Lawyer

Serving Clients throughout the Greater Nashville Area

Tennessee has penalties for driving under the influence. While this is typically associated with alcohol, law enforcement officers increasingly place an emphasis on drivers who operate a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicants or other controlled substance. Whether it involves marijuana or prescription pills, being arrested for impaired driving could put you at risk of steep penalties, including fines and potential jail time.

    What Are Tennessee’s DUID Charges?

    Even if the national attitudes on certain controlled substances have shifted, it is still illegal to operate a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant. However, officers can't rely on Breathalyzer tests to detect marijuana or opiates. As such, measuring impairment can be difficult and ultimately inaccurate. In these instances, a skilled attorney can have a large impact.

    Our firm can help you plan a strong strategy to fight DUID charges related to:

    • Marijuana
    • Cocaine
    • Prescription drugs
    • Antidepressants
    • Xanax
    • Synthetic cannabis
    • Any other intoxicant or narcotic

    What Are the Penalties for a DUID?

    Penalties for DUID are the same as for DUI with a first offender facing jail time of 48 hours up to a year, fines of $350 up to $1,500 and a one-year license suspension. Subsequent offenses are always penalized with harsher consequences.

    A DUI charge can affect your life and reputation. Place your trust in a lawyer who has the skills and knowledge to help. Our firm provides one-on-one legal help with an attorney who will work closely with your from start to finish.
