Drug Recognition Evaluators

What Do Drug Recognition Experts Examine?

Best Mesa DUI Lawyer

Drunk driving is not the only type of DUI issued in Arizona. The police may use a drug recognition expert (DRE) to determine whether you were under the influence of prescription or illegal drugs.

In most serious accidents, the state will conduct a DRE exam. If it finds any amount of illegal drugs or prescription drugs you are not entitled to have in your bloodstream, you could face a DUI charge or much worse. The comprehensive exams are performed by a drug recognition expert and include blood tests, urine tests, blood pressure, eye exams and more.

Our team at The Law Office of Karl A. Mueller, PLC, can help you fight a DUI resulting from the research and testimony of a DRE.

Challenging DRE Results

There are ways to challenge the DRE results that lead to your DUI if you are represented by a lawyer who understands the DRE program. Attorney Karl A. Mueller has had extensive training in DRE and has taught classes on the subject to police officers and prosecutors. He understands how these cases work and how to challenge the findings in court.
