Utah DUI Defense Lawyer
Were You Charged With a DUI, But You Were Not Impaired?
Utah is the only state in the union that has a DUI metabolite law. This law targets people who are found to be driving with any measurable amount of a controlled substance in the body. The controlled substance itself may no longer be in your body – but there may be a metabolite or residue of the substance in your blood or urine, which is the “end product, or by-product of another compound.”
In other words, your DUI metabolite charges may be the result of long-past, even legal ingestion of foreign substances in your body such as prescription drugs or over-the-counter cold remedies that are still detectable through chemical tests.
Serious Intoxicated Driving Defense Attorneys
The lawyers at Greg Smith and Associates are dedicated criminal defense attorneys who are prepared to give your DUI metabolite case the same importance that we would someone who had been caught in a major drug bust or who had been in an accident that resulted in a fatality – and vehicular manslaughter charges.
Were you pulled over for speeding — and then asked to take a blood test because your eyes looked a bit bloodshot? Now you face DUI metabolite charges, and your legal situation is serious. A conviction can have all the same negative consequences as if you had been driving home from a bar drunk.
All your constitutional rights apply in the event of a DUI metabolite arrest, including your Sixth Amendment rights to a speedy trial. Contact us to learn how the U.S. Constitution may hold the key to your freedom after a DUI metabolite arrest. You can contact us online or call 801-651-1512 any time of the day, any day of the week.
Why Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney Because You Were Charged With Having NyQuil Traces in Your Blood?
Questions we are asked most often by potential clients include:
- Can I trust you? Answer: Yes.
- Are your fees reasonable? Answer: Yes.
- Do you focus solely on criminal defense? Answer: Yes.
That last question is important to the same people who prefer to hire a roofer to work on their roofs, an electrician to do electrical work and a tile installer to install tile – rather than hiring a general handyman for these tasks.
