Liberty Law Colorado Springs

DUI-D Attorney

Our experienced DUI-D attorneys are here to help you navigate the repercussions of driving under the influence of drugs.


The first step is a discussion with our team about your vision for your future.

No One Needs to Know You Smoked Today

With the recent legalization of marijuana, its recreational and medicinal use has become increasingly common. However, similar to alcohol, you can be pulled over for suspected traffic offenses and asked to perform a standard field sobriety test if law enforcement suspects you’re under the influence of marijuana. It’s important to note that the roadside maneuvers used to detect alcohol impairment are not effective in determining impairment from marijuana use.

Given the novelty of legal marijuana use, the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles currently lacks specific regulations for marijuana DUIs. This means your license isn’t immediately at risk if you’re suspected of using marijuana and driving. However, being charged with a marijuana DUI in Colorado Springs can be a complex process involving blood tests, evaluations, and multiple court appearances.

Our Colorado Springs DUI-D lawyer team is equipped to challenge the results of blood tests, question the validity of the sobriety test, and argue against the assumption that your ability was impaired. We aim to protect you from criminal charges and the potential impact of a DUI charge on your future. Trust our experienced attorneys to provide the defense you need in these challenging circumstances.

What to Do if You’re Arrested in Colorado for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs?

While being pulled over by law enforcement in (El Paso and Pueblo County) can be nerve-racking, it’s important that you remain calm and comply with the officers involved. If you’ve been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, following these steps can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case:

  • Respect Law Enforcement: If you’re in the process of getting arrested, don’t resist. If you resist arrest, you could add an additional charge to your case, resulting in bigger fines or extended time behind bars. While you should comply with law enforcement, it does not mean you need to answer any questions, and we advise that you don’t, as they could further incriminate you. 
  • Know Your Rights: If you’re being arrested for a DUI-D, it’s important that you know that you have the right to remain silent. You don’t have to answer any questions or provide additional information to law enforcement after arrest. You will not be penalized for not answering questions if you are compliant with physical direction and do not resist arrest. 
  • Comply with Testing: While you can refuse to test, we highly recommend that you comply. Refusing a blood test after being arrested for a suspected DUI-D will result in additional penalties.

about our firm.
I am so thankful I called Liberty Law Center. The amount of knowledge and dedication that comes from Valerie is next to none. She helped me understand the entire process. Made me feel like I was not alone. It took me 15-plus years to deal with my issue. Now as it gets resolved I have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I owe it all to Valerie. Mr. Beck has put together an amazing team.
Divorce is never easy and mine was not. I hired Drake Larson due to the incompetence of another attorney so I was already distraught with the entire situation. Drake assured me he would get to the facts of my case and get control of the situation and figure out the best way to a fair outcome. To make a long story short after 10 months we finally went to the Judge today. Let me assure you that Mr. Larsen was confident, well-versed, prepared, and went above and beyond my expectations. To whoever is reading this take my advice and hire Drake Larsen if you need expert representation.
I am beyond thankful for this incredible group of people, especially Bill Beck and his awesome sidekick Valerie. They’ve been with me through the (year-long) court process at every step, and have provided nothing but compassion, clarity, guidance, support, and in the end, a big victory thanks to Mr. Beck’s above-and-beyond efforts. Do yourself a massive favor and hire this team!!
Drake Larson was a wonderful Lawyer. He is very knowledgeable in his field. If he didn't know the answer to some very off the wall situations, he would research and get back to me quickly. He was very professional but also personable. He made me feel comfortable and confident in my case and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Drake.
Can't say enough about this amazing team! Both Bill and Valerie were a huge support in helping with our case and I can't thank them enough for everything they did from start to finish! Valerie is amazing with follow up and always made us feel like we could call her about anything we had questions about or needed help with. Very professional team and we highly recommend Liberty Law Center!
