What is prescription drug monitoring?

You probably have a certain expectation of privacy when it comes to your medical care. You may even assume that what medications you are on is something that you can keep between you and your doctors. However, the government now has a way to peek in on what's happening with your prescriptions. That can spell trouble.

Beware of all forms of impaired driving this holiday season

With the start of the holiday party season near, it is essential that anyone who is going to consume alcohol ensure that they have a way to get home that doesn't involve them driving. Many people don't realize that alcohol isn't the only thing that can impact your ability to drive. There is also a chance that you might be too impaired to drive if you take any drugs -- including prescription and over-the-counter ones.

New law provides chance to keep your license after DUI

One of the unavoidable consequences of a DUI conviction is the loss of your driver's license. For a first offense, you may be fortunate to avoid jail time, but losing your license is almost certain. Can you imagine being unable to drive for a year or even a month? How would you get to work? How would you take your children to their activities? How could you complete the many tasks and errands that require driving?

Carefully consider first-degree murder defense options

People who are facing a first-degree murder charge are in a fight for their life. When you are in this position, you should evaluate your possible defense options quickly so that you can start planning a strategy to address the prosecution's claims against you.

Many impacts come when a person is addicted to drugs

Drug abuse is a societal problem in this country that has shifted to a criminal action with the passage of laws outlawing substances that are classified as unsafe. While this was done to reduce the impact that these drugs have on society, little consideration was given to how facing these charges would impact an addict. Unfortunately, the focus is more on punishment instead of rehabilitation.

Marijuana as a factor in impaired driving cases

Marijuana is no longer seen as a highly dangerous drug by many people in society. Despite that point, there are some very strict laws that still stand against this drug. One of these has to do with driving while you are under the influence of it. The law sets a standard of .08 percent blood alcohol concentration for individuals who have been drinking, but there isn't really a valid, legally agreed-upon measure for marijuana.

What Our Clients Say

“Matt Swain helped me out of a situation that would have otherwise cost me money I didn't have, and precious time I couldn't spare. And he did it selflessly. If I ever need to turn to an attorney in the future, he would be my first call. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Norman/OKC area! His entire staff was kind and helpful from day one. Thank you all so much!�—Laura M.
