Drugged Driving Lawyer Houston, TX
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID)
Houston DWI & Drugs Lawyer
Many law-abiding people have been shocked and dismayed to be arrested on suspicion of drunk driving when, in fact, their driving skills were impaired or might have been impaired by consumption of over-the-counter or legally prescribed medications. Whether the drugs involved are legal or illegal, prescribed or purchasable over the counter, the presence of certain substances in your body is considered to hamper your driving abilities – and can result in a DWI arrest.
Prescription and over-the-counter medications commonly involved in DUID arrests include:
- Sedating antidepressants
- Sleeping pills
- Medications containing hydrocodone (such as Vicodin)

Challenging DWI Drug Cases in Harris County
In some cases, a person who is intoxicated by ingestion of a drug did not know about the effects of the medication or did not know that drugs had been administered to him or her. When the drug consumption was not voluntary, this may be strong enough evidence to get drunk driving charges dismissed.
This is but one example of the type of creative, aggressive criminal defense conducted by Jed Silverman and our team. Mr. Silverman is one of a very few lawyers to successfully defend clients in drug-related cases by convincing a judge that the drug consumption had been involuntary.
