Arrested for Being Under the Influence of Drugs?

Speak with an Experienced Drug Crime Defense Lawyer in Ventura

In California, being under the influence of a controlled substance is a crime. Unlike driving under the influence cases, individuals who have been arrested or charged with being under the influence simply need to have any detectable amount of drugs in their system. For this reason, it will be imperative that you consult an experienced Ventura criminal defense lawyer immediately.

As a skilled Ventura drug crime lawyer who has successfully handled hundreds of criminal defense matters, Attorney Welch can apply an aggressive, effective, and creative defense strategy to your unique case. He can spot any abnormalities in both chemical drug tests and tests administered by police officers to determine whether you appear to be under the influence.

Don't risk paying the price of a criminal conviction.
