Las Vegas DUI Lawyer

Facing a DUI in the Las Vegas Area?

I'm Attorney Chip Siegel, a DUI defense lawyer in Las Vegas. Because you are facing a DUI, you probably feel scared that you will be put in jail, unable to drive, and that no one will listen to you. You should be able to feel like you can avoid a DUI conviction and not go through life labeled as a DRUNK DRIVER.

Well, let me tell you a little about myself and my firm. When I was a teen, I had a close family member charged with a felony. It devastated our family and friends. We suffered embarrassment, lost so much, and lived throughout the ordeal without knowing what was happening with the case. The stress of not knowing wreaked emotional havoc on us. The consequences seemed devastating at the time. But what I recall most is worrying and not knowing what was going on in the case.

Contact my firm at your earliest convenience for the trustworthy defense from a Las Vegas DUI attorney you need as you navigate the charges.

Furthermore, a lawyer can help you understand all forms of evidence presented, helping to ensure that your case is properly defended.

Is a DUI a Felony in Nevada?

Nevada’s felony DUI law imposes harsher penalties for certain DUI offenses. A DUI is a class B felony when the offender drives under the influence:

  • having been convicted of two prior DUIs within the past seven years.

Causing the death of another person while driving under the influence could also lead to vehicular manslaughter charges in Nevada.

How Do You Get a DUI Expunged in Nevada?

You can not get a full expungement on a DUI in Nevada. While Nevada does not offer a way to completely expunge your record, there is still a similarly beneficial option in the form of having your record sealed. You can petition to have your DUI record sealed after the statute of limitations associated with your charge has passed. Having your record sealed serves the same basic purpose as having it expunged. This means that the crime you were charged or convicted of will no longer be visible when someone runs a background check on you. Having your DUI record sealed also affords you the right to legally claim that you have not been arrested for or convicted of a DUI, though this obviously only applies if you have not been arrested or charged with any subsequent DUIs following your first offense. It is also important to know that while your DUI record will no longer be accessible to the general public, it may still be made available under relevant conditions to government and law enforcement agencies.

How Long Does a DUI Stay on Your Driving Record in Nevada?

DUI convictions will stay on your criminal record files permanently. If you are sentenced for another DUI offense within 7 years, it will count against you and lead to harsher punishment.

That experience motivated me to fight for people I represent to:

  • Always have access to their case to know what is happening and what to expect
  • Avoid seeing people go to jail
  • Allow my clients to continue to drive, work, and live their life

To ensure these 3 outcomes for my clients, I had to create the 3 Keys to DUI Defense:

  • Keep you driving
  • Keep you out of jail
  • Keep you informed about your case

We are the only firm in Las Vegas doing this!

When you work with us, here’s exactly what you get:

  • An action plan of things you can do to put us in the best position possible to avoid jail in your case
  • 24/7 access to your file so you can review court documents any time you want with any family members or friends you think could help
  • Updates after each court appearance, either by letter or video – your choice

When I was going through the experience through my teen years, I wish someone extended me a helping hand.

So, if you want the best chance to avoid a conviction and being labeled a drunk driver, contact us now for a no-obligation consultation. When you call, here is what will happen:

  • You will talk to my assistant who will get a summary of what happened – this will allow me to concentrate on how best to help you
  • I will either talk to you on the phone or set up an office meeting depending on your needs and desires

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What Should I Do After an Arrest?
    Whether this was your first arrest or you have had previous run-ins with the law, the time following an arrest can be confusing. If you have been arrested, comply with the police officers to the best of your ability. Arguing your case at this point may not be helpful in the long run. You are encouraged to take advantage of your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. Even if you are completely innocent of all charges, what you say could be twisted and held against you. For this reason, it is best to allow a legal professional to walk with you throughout this process.
  • What Penalties Could I Be Facing?
    The penalties for criminal offenses in Nevada will differ depending on the specific crime. Felony offenses are more serious than misdemeanors and so will carry with it more serious consequences. Misdemeanors can result in up to one year in county jail and a $1,000 fine. A felony could result in time in state prison instead of county jail and higher fines. If you are convicted of a sex crime, you will be placed on the sex offender registry permanently as well as face time behind bars. If you are facing DUI charges, you are also running the risk of losing your driver's license.
  • Can I Challenge My Dui?
    One of the most common offenses is DUI If you were accused of drunk driving, you need to be aware that there are multiple ways in which to defend yourself. I am certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to conduct field sobriety tests. If there were any errors in your field sobriety test, I have the training and experience necessary to detect these errors and so challenge the evidence against you. Also, if you were the victim of an illegal search and seizure, this could help in your defense.

Explanation of Driving Under the Influence Charges

DUI stands for driving under the influence. Under Nevada law, a driver may face criminal charges for this offense when:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol;
  • Driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater;
  • Driving under the influence of a controlled substance;
  • Driving under the combined influence of alcohol and a controlled substance; or
  • Driving while his or her physical abilities or ability to drive safely are impaired due to the use of any organic solvent, chemical, poison, or any other compound.

Building a Defense for DUI Charges

DUI is a serious offense that will require immediate legal counsel for you or your loved one. As an experienced Las Vegas DUI attorney, it is my goal to educate people about drunk driving charges and penalties and to help them avoid serious consequences by giving them the representation they need. I represent clients throughout Las Vegas, Henderson, and the surrounding areas in Clark County, Nevada.

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?

As soon as possible following an arrest, you will need to address the issue of the suspension of your driver's license. If you took a breath test or blood test, you will receive a notice of revocation either in person or through the mail. If you do not contact the Nevada DMV and schedule a hearing regarding this suspension, you will lose your license for a set period of time.

How Our DUI Attorney Can Serve You

Our Las Vegas DUI lawyer can provide you with legal representation at your DMV hearing. I am dedicated to providing my clients with the representation they need throughout the criminal court process and at DMV hearings in order to help them avoid criminal DUI penalties and license suspension.

On the criminal side, a Las Vegas or Henderson DUI conviction may result in the following:

  • Mandatory imprisonment
  • Court-ordered counseling
  • Rehabilitation
  • Fines
  • Court fees
  • Community service
  • Probation

Sentencing will be determined on a case-by-case basis and will be dependent upon a number of factors. The defendant's blood alcohol concentration will affect sentencing if it is well above the legal limit (such as .18% or greater). Whether the defendant has any prior DUI convictions will also affect sentencing. Multiple DUI offenses result in enhanced penalties such as a longer term of imprisonment, longer license suspension or revocation, higher fines and more community service.

Drunk Driving & The Law

A Las Vegas DUI lawyer from our firm can give you an overview of the DUI process in order to help you understand all of the procedures involved. Whether your drunk driving resulted in an accident or it caused injury to another, the sentencing process you will be put through will include strict procedures that require diligent legal defense. Out of state drivers and underage drivers who are caught driving while intoxicated will both be susceptible to the same harsh penalties of a DUI conviction as any other drunk driver on the road.

Some DUI arrests are so serious that they will be tried as a felony, almost guaranteeing that a harsher sentencing and conviction will be made. For all of these reasons, immediately after being charged with DUI you should contact a Las Vegas DUI attorney. The support, guidance, and skill tactics that will be applied to your case by a Las Vegas lawyer from my firm will go far in advancing your chances of a successful case outcome.

Your Case Is Not Hopeless

Although law enforcement may have told you that your case is hopeless, even if you took a breath test or blood test and failed, or in the presence of a plea bargain offered by the prosecuting attorney, a Las Vegas DUI attorney's legal counsel and guidance will be virtually priceless.

There are various defense strategies that a competent lawyer should explore before determining how to build your case, including whether or not you were subjected to a lawful initial police stop, whether or not blood and alcohol tests were performed properly, and whether or not your field sobriety testing was conducted according to state standards. There is always hope when you have the right DUI lawyer at your side.

You too could benefit from the services offered at my firm, so contact a Las Vegas DUI lawyer today.
