Las Vegas DUI Attorney

The City of Las Vegas has a new DUI strike force. They specifically target drunk and impaired drivers. Because of that, Las Vegas DUI arrests are expected to rise. If you drive while intoxicated or impaired, you could easily get swept up by the DUI strike force. Alcohol is not the only substance that can get you arrested and charged with DUI, however. Many other controlled and illegal substances are listed in the NRS DUI statute: marijuana (even though it is legal now on the state level), amphetamine, cocaine, heroin, LSD, as well as methamphetamine. If you have been pulled over and had any of these substances in your blood, we need to get working on your defense quickly. The NRS lists what percentage of a controlled substance you must have in your blood or on your breath for you to be charged with DUI. You need to reach out to me as soon as possible because if the authorities have made a mistake in the alcohol or drug level we can act on that in your defense.

With my 34 years of experience in this type of law, I can answer all the questions you might have. Frequently asked questions like how long the state of Nevada keeps a DUI on your driving record; how a DUI will affect your insurance rates; what will happen with your driving privileges; what if you receive a DUI and you’re under 21. If this is your first DUI, I can help you through the process of what penalties you will incur for that infraction. If you have multiple DUIs, that will change the way we pursue your case, but the DUI case law in the NRS will be our map for your defense. There are also paths we can take to lower your sentence in your DUI Defense Las Vegas case.

 

 

Clearly, if you have an alcohol or drug addiction, counseling services are available that may help us get some time off your sentence. If you’re the concerned parent of a child who receives a DUI, this is an option we should surely discuss. Nevada has a DUI school to help your child or family member in the short and long term.

Las Vegas DUI Defense Lawyer

How serious is DUI/DWI?

DUI/DWI is a serious issue, with thousands of deaths each year in DUI/DWI incidents.

Is it “safer” to drink beer, wine or hard liquor in excess?

When alcohol is abused, it can cause a wide range of problems. Alcohol has an intoxicating effect and may lead to dangerous or even deadly situations if consumed in excess. Various sorts of alcoholic beverages include various amounts of alcohol, often referred to as “proofs.”

What is a blood-alcohol content?

The concentration of ethanol in the blood (ethanol content, BAC, or level, BAL) is a measure of how much alcohol is in your bloodstream. The breakdown products of ethanol you consumed are present in your blood as ethanol.

Do I have to take a breath-analyzer test?

A breathalyzer test is used to determine a person’s BAC (blood alcohol concentration) or BAL (blood alcohol level). When you exhale, the amount of ethanol in your system is equal to that which “exists” on your breath.

Can I be charged with DUI/DWI for driving after taking drugs?

Yes, although the crime may have a different name. If you operate a car under the influence of drugs such as heroin, cocaine, marijuana or any other illegal substance, you can be charged with a crime.

What will happen if I have more than one DUI/DWI conviction?

The penalties for a DUI/DWI conviction are set by the state in which you received the convictions. Most states utilize a “step-up” method to handle multiple DUI/DWI offenses committed by the same person.

Are “alternative” penalties appropriate for DUI/DWI?

In many cases, “alternative” penalties are permissible in DUI/DWI convictions. A judge may have considerable leeway when determining how you should be penalized during your trial.

Should I get an attorney if I have been charged with DUI/DWI?

Even if you are not required to hire an attorney, if you have been arrested or charged with DUI/DWI, it is a good idea to obtain one.

What if I lose my license but continue to drive?

If a person who has had his or her driving license revoked or suspended due to drunk driving is stopped while not having a valid license, he or she faces additional severe penalties, such as fines and imprisonment.

How can I get automobile insurance after a drunk driving conviction?

Even if you have a criminal record, your rates may remain the same. Even after you’ve been convicted, your insurance company might continue to cover you. Your rate will go down in the future as a result of a clean driving history. If your insurance is canceled as a consequence of the charge, another insurer may be willing to take the chance.
