The attorneys at the Law Office of Hector Gonzalez III, P.C., in San Antonio understand the complex nature of DWI charges involving Ambien and other prescription drugs. Founding attorney Hector Gonzalez III has 20 years of experience representing drivers in drunk driving cases in Texas.
Driving With Ambien In Your System
You can be charged with a DWI if the police suspect you are intoxicated and they find prescription drugs in your system. The police can obtain a warrant to have your blood drawn to see if you took any prescription or illegal drugs. If Ambien or any other type of drug is found in your system, you may be charged with a DWI.
Ambien cases are complex. The police will argue you were intoxicated by Ambien or other type of prescription drug. Many cases rely on expert testimony to show how much of the drug you took and how much of the drug was in your system to prove you were intoxicated at the time of your arrest.
We have represented drivers with prescription drugs in their system, drivers arrested after getting into a car accident and the police suspect they are drunk, and drivers who have a combination of alcohol and Ambien or another prescription drug in their system.
Experience Evaluating Evidence, Questioning Expert Testimony
We are experienced trial lawyers. We know what questions to ask to discredit evidence or expert testimony being used against you. It is very difficult for the police or an expert to show with definite proof you were intoxicated at the particular time of your arrest. Prescription drugs can stay in your system for a long time — so even though the drug is still present in your blood, it may not have an impact on your ability to safely operate a vehicle.
Our attorneys will diligently prepare for your case as if it's going to trial. We are dedicated to protecting your rights, and we will work hard to explore factors in your case to find the best possible outcome.
We will carefully evaluate all evidence in your case, including video surveillance and other factors that may help to prove your innocence.
Having a skilled Ambien DWI attorney on your side can ensure your rights are protected. We will prepare a strong defense to find a positive outcome for you. Call us at 210-404-4230 to schedule a free initial consultation or contact us online.
