Drunk Driving Attorneys in Las Vegas
Our Las Vegas drunk driving lawyers have the training and experience that you need to fight your drunk driving charge aggressively. We don’t just rely on the police. Instead, we conduct our own investigation.
We look at every aspect of your case to see where the police made mistakes and where they didn’t gather sufficient evidence to prove your guilt. It’s not enough to sit back and hope that the police can’t prove their case against you. Instead, you must aggressively attack the state’s evidence and build your defenses.
How Our DUI Lawyers in Las Vegas Help You Build Your Defense
Your drunk driving defense begins right away. You may need to take critical steps as soon as possible to save evidence. There may be chemical tests that you can take quickly after your drunk driving arrest to prove your innocence. It may be crucial to identify witnesses and ask important questions. The police may also have evidence that can work to your favor. Our team of DUI professionals knows how to demand records from law enforcement. We can help you find the right experts to explain chemical test results or help the jury understand technical information.
At each stage in your case, we work quickly and strategically to build your defenses and present them effectively. It’s important to treat each court hearing as an opportunity to advance your case. Preliminary hearings may be crucial to advance your case and make a positive impression on the court. When you work with our experienced drunk driving attorneys, we’re with you every step of the way.
Getting the Evidence Thrown out in a Nevada Drunk Driving Case
If it’s appropriate, we can help you make a motion to suppress the state’s evidence against you. If the police gather evidence in a way that violates your constitutional rights, you may ask the court to throw out the evidence against you. If the court agrees, it may mean getting your case dismissed without even needing to go to trial. Our DUI lawyers can help you understand how one or more preliminary motions can help you fight the DUI charges against you.
What Are the Penalties for a Drunk Driving Conviction in Las Vegas?
A conviction can bring a range of penalties for DUI. You face time in jail. If you have a prior criminal record, if there’s an accident involved in your case or if it’s not your first drunk driving offense, you’re even more likely to face jail time. But there are things that you can do to minimize your exposure to jail time. Our attorneys can help you take the right steps to reduce the chances of jail time in your case. We can also help you address conditions of bond and bail so that you can stay out of jail and attend to personal matters while you wait for future court dates.
Jail isn’t the only concern in a drunk driving case. You also face significant fines. The fines that the court imposes can easily total more than $1,000. But there are things that you can do. If you’re found not guilty, or the court dismisses your case before trial, you don’t have to pay court fines. Also, if we’re able to negotiate your case down to a non-drunk driving offense, your fines may be much smaller. One of the many things that we do when we represent drunk driving clients in Las Vegas is helping our clients minimize their financial liabilities because of the charges against them.
It’s also important to us that you understand all of the types of consequences that arise from each course of action. If the state extends a plea offer, we help you understand the pros and cons of each option so that you can make the best possible decisions in your case. A drunk driving conviction may impact your driver’s license. We want you to understand exactly how the charges against you might affect your driver’s license. In addition, if there may be consequences to your immigration status, we want you to understand that, too. Our lawyers help you understand all aspects of the charges against you so that you can make the best choices for you as your case moves through the courts.
What Are Some Defenses Available to a Drunk Driving (DUI) Charge in Las Vegas?
If you’re facing a drunk driving charge in Las Vegas, there may be defenses that are available to you that you may not be aware of. It’s important not to assume that the police have a strong case just because you’re facing a DUI charge.
The police may have stopped your vehicle without lawful authority. They may not have collected evidence like chemical testing in a legal manner. The police may have made mistakes in your case. The police may just be trying to draw inaccurate conclusions from the evidence. Our team can use our training and experience to help you explore all of the defenses that might be possible in your case.
