Understanding The Law


Drunk Driving is a broad term that refers to a more specific charge. These charges include, DUI, DWI, OVI, and OMVI.  You can be charged for driving while under the influence of any substance deemed to "impair" your reaction time, such as illegal drugs, prescription medication, marijuana, even over the counter medication. In addition to driving under the influence, you may also be charged for bicycling under the influence or boating under the influence. At Roof and Potts we can help you win your case, maintain your freedom and get on with your life.
