In Colorado, a DUI arrest can have serious, lifelong consequences.

When it comes to defending against DUI and DUID charges in Colorado, local experience matters. I can use my experience to help you seek to avoid jail time and minimize the consequences of your arrest.

Fighting for Clients Accused of Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
I also provide vigorous legal defense for clients arrested on charges of DUID in Montrose, Colorado. DUID cases are unique, and with the complexities of Colorado’s marijuana laws, it is important to hire an attorney who has specific experience defending clients arrested on drug-related charges. I have handled numerous DUID cases throughout Colorado, and I have extensive experience in cases involving marijuana, prescription medications, and other drugs.
With recreational use of marijuana legalized in Colorado, it is important to consider that driving under the influence of drugs, including forms of marijuana, is still a dangerous endeavor and a serious crime. In these cases, law enforcement can continue to pursue marijuana-related criminal charges.
Residents and citizens of Colorado should be cognizant of the changes in the law regarding marijuana, specifically the different factors at play when one is charged with driving under the influence of drugs, or DUID. In many cases, errors can occur during the legal process, whether on the part of law enforcement or in courtrooms. Some officers may not have the proper training to properly assess whether you are under the influence of drugs, and sometimes officers with the proper training simply make mistakes. Police officers generally look for the following traits from driver under the influence of marijuana: divided attention, poor coordination, and a slowed internal clock.
Sometimes, law enforcement officers and courts may treat DUID cases like they would treat cases of driving under the influence of alcohol. It is the defense’s responsibility to show the flaw in this sort of thinking, and can do so by using better experts for testimony, having a better understanding of the law, and using a better fundamental understanding of science.
DUID prosecutions are on the rise, especially as the use of marijuana becomes more prevalent throughout the state of Colorado. While police may be paying more attention to these cases, attorney Mark S. Rubinstein is actively defending against many of these cases. His real experience with this specific crime can be an asset to any DUID case.
We can help your case with a full understanding of the following:
