In order to determine whether a person was DUI due to drugs, blood testing must be conducted. As former prosecutors, we know the pitfalls law enforcement can fall into when testing drivers. The person conducting the testing may not know how to properly draw blood and contaminate the sample or proper procedure is not followed, resulting in botched results. It is our responsibility as your legal representative to review the entire case in order to find any holes in the prosecution’s defense and use them to your advantage.
