You are probably here because you are looking for the best DUI lawyer in Las Vegas.
Most people who are arrested for a DUI immediately realize the gravity of what they are dealing with. When faced with the report of their blood alcohol level, they feel as if the case is closed and that they have no other option but to plead guilty and accept the charges.
DUI in Las Vegas is nothing new. The nightlife draws millions of people annually, and there is a steady stream of arrests related to driving under the influence. While residents of southern Nevada are not immune to DUI charges, it is often visitors to the area that see the majority of arrests, due to the nature of their visits.
This poses an interesting dilemma for many people who face a DUI arrest in Las Vegas, because while they may not have a Nevada driver’s license, the charges may still cause their license to be suspended in their home state. This can complicate matters for you, which is why you need an aggressive and experienced lawyer to represent you in court.
After two convictions, your next offense within seven years becomes a felony. Felony DUI charges in Las Vegas can result in multiple scenarios, such as when the defendant is accusing of fleeing the scene, causing substantial bodily harm, or if its a third DUI arrest within seven years. No matter the scenario, the consequences become much more serious than a misdemeanor DUI. In this case, hiring a skilled Nevada criminal defense lawyer becomes even more necessary, as stakes get even higher, prosecutors are more dedicated to obtaining a conviction, and the defense must be crafted even more precisely.
DUI’s are one of the most common criminal arrests in the Las Vegas area. They are also one of the most complicated areas of criminal law there is. This is because, in essence, your attorney has to beat the case TWICE. In order to be convicted of DUI in Nevada, the prosecution has to prove that 1) You were in actual physical control of the vehicle, and either 2) Your blood alcohol content (BAC) was .08 or higher or 3) You were too intoxicated to be driving safely. This dual conviction structure means that the prosecutor has two distinct methods by which to convict you.
