When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases. But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.

Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys have received advanced level training on the strategies that win the most DUI cases at trial and are also used to get DUI cases successfully resolved for the defense prior to trial. Members of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys also have access to the resources and tools that are used to win and successfully resolve DUI cases and these are resources and tools that only a very small percentage of DUI attorneys have access to and use.

Drug-related charges

The facts are enough to make anyone sober. In the United States, millions of people abuse prescription drugs, outnumbering those who report cocaine or heroin abuse. Of the thousands of people who die from a drug overdose every year, opiod painkillers top the list. About 30,000 traffic accidents happen every year in the United States; more than half involve alcohol. About 2,000 college students die each year in alcohol-related traffic accidents.

Overdosing of prescription drugs has been steadily on the rise in the past few years. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, an example of prescription drug abuse is the painkiller Fentanyl. It is reportedly 30 or more times more powerful than heroin. Millions of teenagers, ages 12-17, admit to using – and generally abusing – prescription drugs such as Ritalin, and some get high just from over-the-counter drugs such as cough syrup.
The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University in New York City reports that teenagers who abuse prescription drugs are:

* twice as likely to drink alcohol,
* five times more likely to use marijuana, and
* 20 times more likely to get involved with illegal street drugs such as cocaine or Ecstasy.
