What Effect Will Drugs Have On My DUI Charge?

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 Chickasaw County 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 criminal cases in the city where I am a prosecutor, which is Okolona. I can defend cases in greater Chickasaw County and surrounding counties throughout Mississippi, as well as in federal court.

When you need a strong legal defense, call my office at 662-260-6646 or contact me online for a free initial consultation.

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 in 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.
