DUI Drug case in Santa Clarita, CA

Question: I have a 2nd DUI case in Santa Clarita, CA. No alcohol, but drug DUI. How should I proceed from here? 1st DUI was alcohol in San Fernando, CA
Answer: I think Drug DUI cases are often easier to defend than alcohol DUI cases (assuming the driving is not horrendous). Of course, I have seen similar cases and my response was initially the same until I saw the video of the driving and the clients issues with talking and walking….and my thoughts on the case changed. But all things being equal, more variables, unpredictabilities, and often lack of “per se” laws with drug DUI’s, and they can be better cases to defend at trial. Call me to discuss further.
