North Carolina Positive Urinalysis Defense Attorney
Men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces are subject to random urinalysis testing to determine the presence of illegal narcotics in the GI's system. If a service member has a positive urinalysis, there is an assumption that the service member knowingly consumed drugs.

As a retired Marine JAG officer, Mr. Stackhouse has been involved in scores of cases involving urinalysis tests. The presumption of guilt puts the service member in a difficult position. The fact is, many urinalysis results are wrong or there is an explanation, e.g., it is the result of the GI innocently ingesting a controlled substance or an error by the test analysis lab.
Did Your Positive Military Drug Screening Test Prove Criminal Intent?
Unknowing drug ingestion may occur from tainted food, someone slipping you the drug without your knowledge, or someone lying or erroneously insisting that a substance you are taking is not a drug. Errors in collection and testing for urinalysis may also come into play. Procedures to ensure that the urine you provide is traceable only to you often break down. The testing procedures are very exact and complicated, but sometimes the drug screening labs make mistakes. A competent and thorough military lawyer will carefully investigate and review all evidence presented against you.
Did You Already Admit to Using a Controlled Substance?
If you were notified of a positive urinalysis, and made a statement admitting your use of drugs, it is not too late to mount an effective, aggressive defense. Often, statements made under duress or threats can be suppressed as violations of your civil rights. Before you assume you don't have a solid defense, contact Phillip Stackhouse to discuss your case.
It is important to seek sound, aggressive legal counsel as soon as possible after you know you are in legal trouble in the military system. The earlier your attorney can begin challenging the urinalysis procedure and results, the better chance you will have of building a strong, effective defense that can save your freedom and your career.
