Defending Against Allegations of Drunk Driving

The penalties for DUI are severe and far-reaching. Although alternative sentencing is available in order to avoid jail time, you will have to pay for treatment or counseling and will have to complete this. You may face trouble with employment or a damaged reputation if convicted of DUI, and your driver's license will be at risk. A guilty verdict will cause many repercussions, along with placing a conviction on your criminal record. Having a defensive strategy is critical. Many people are wrongfully accused or are slapped with charges that are more severe than what fits the crime.

Building a Defense

There are numerous successful defenses that I have used to help my clients avoid DUI convictions, and while these will vary depending upon the particular case, following are some basic questions that I may ask in order to determine how to build a defense on your behalf:

  • Were you lawfully arrested?
  • Did the law enforcement officer have probable cause to pull you over?
  • Was there probable cause for a DUI arrest?
  • Were field sobriety tests administered properly?
  • Were you incorrectly failed on a field sobriety test?
  • Were breath or blood tests administered properly, and by a trained professional?
  • Was your blood alcohol concentration accurately measured?
  • Was all protocol followed by law enforcement in the investigation of your case?

You will face the suspension or revocation of your Nevada driver's license if you are arrested for DUI. However, you have the right to request a DMV hearing in order to challenge the suspension and have your driving privileges reinstated. A Las Vegas DUI lawyer can schedule your hearing for you and represent you at the hearing in order to protect your driver's license.

As a defense lawyer, I dedicate my time and effort to DUI defense. I am a former prosecutor and am also certified by the NHTSA in conducting field sobriety tests. I took the same class that law enforcement officers are required to take. This is one of the many ways that I work to stay ahead of the curve and provide even more aggressive, effective DUI defense representation for my clients.
