DUI DWI In Las Vegas
Far too many people go to jail and suffer other serious consequences for lack of a competent DUI defense attorney. By giving police too much information or pleading guilty, many people give up the opportunity to challenge evidence against them. The sooner you contact us, the better your chance of minimizing consequences.
Limits and Penalties Are Tougher Than Ever
In Nevada, a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 is considered driving under the influence, regardless of driving behavior. Commercial (CDL) drivers can lose their licenses for a BAC of .04, and the threshold is just .02 for minors under age 21. Your use of any controlled substance, including prescription drugs, can also result in a DUI. Penalties for DUI conviction are too harsh to plead guilty as charged without exploring all other legal alternatives. Even for a first DUI offense, you can face:
- Jail time up to six months
- Vehicle impoundment
- Loss of your driver’s license
- Fines up to $1,000 and court costs
- Community service and/or mandatory alcohol treatment
- Misdemeanor record
Repeat offenders or anyone involved in an accident causing injury can face Class A or Class B felony DUI charges, years in prison, huge fines and other devastating consequences.
We Will Challenge Your Drunk Driving Arrest
Nevada statutes forbid prosecutors from pleading DUI cases down to lesser charges if they reasonably believe they can convict. However, Nevada Law Group is aggressive in examining the evidence to find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and gain bargaining power for you. We know that citizens’ rights are violated frequently during traffic stops, sobriety tests and other aspects of DUI arrests. Our approach to your DUI defense can include:
- Questioning reasonable suspicion for the initial traffic stop
- Challenging the results of blood tests or breath analysis
- Issuing a subpoena of car-mounted camera footage to show incorrect testing or inappropriate conduct by the officer
- Identifying errors in processing, such as blood tests administered too long after the traffic stop
