DUI & Drug Use

While most people think about alcohol when they hear about driving under the influence (DUI), driving under the influence of drugs is taken very seriously by law enforcement and prosecutors in Mississippi. If you are facing charges of driving under the influence of drugs, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney protecting your interests.

Driving While Impaired Defense

I'm Gene Barton, a Tupelo-area criminal defense lawyer with more than 40 years of experience. I have a well-deserved reputation as the "Bulldog of Mississippi" due to the way I tenaciously fight for the rights of my clients. I have experience handling drug crimes and DUI cases and will work hard to get the best possible outcome for you.

Note: I cannot defend cases in counties where I am a prosecutor, in the 3rd Circuit Court District (Benton, Calhoun, Chickasaw, Lafayette, Marshall, Tippah and Union counties). I can defend cases in all other counties in the state jurisdiction, including Tupelo-area counties such as Lee, Pontotoc, Monroe, Itawamba, Prentiss, Alcorn and Tishomingo counties and anywhere else in Mississippi, as well as in federal court.

Defending You Against The Harsh Consequences Of Drug DUI Charges

If convicted of a drug-related DUI, you could be facing the suspension or revocation of your license depending on the circumstances and your prior record. I take an aggressive approach to pursuing reduced charges, challenging evidence and seeking alternative sentencing. You will not be judged by me; my only concern is helping you obtain the best possible outcome so you can protect your driver's license and move on with your life.

In addition to being a bulldog for my clients legally, I am a bulldog in seeking what's best for my clients as people. I have a tremendous amount of experience working with alcoholics and drug addicts. If you have a problem with drugs, I will work with you to find an alcohol or drug treatment program that can help you.
