Everyone loves to party in Sin City during the holidays, but those arrested for a DUI know that their New Year’s resolution has to be staying out of jail. Nevada has some of the toughest DUI laws in America. Jail time is possible on a first offense and standard on a second offense. A third offense is a felony carrying a prison sentence of 1 to 6 years.
Facing these charges without an experienced, aggressive Las Vegas DUI attorney sets you up to get the max. Though drunk driving is never recommended, no one deserves to have a mistake ruin his or her life. That’s why our attorneys work tirelessly to represent your interests in court. We ensure you are treated fairly. We keep the police and prosecutors honest. We keep you out of Nevada prison.
In addition to possible jail time, Nevada courts sentence DUI offenders to heavy fines. First offenses carry fines of $400 to $1,000, plus court costs. For second offenses, the amount increases to $750 to $1,100. Third-time offenders face a devastating $2,000 to $5,000. DUI offenders also face community service, driver’s license suspension or revocation, court mandated drug or alcohol treatment, and mandated breath interlock devices on their vehicles.
In addition to keeping you out of jail, the tough lawyers at Dobberstein Law Group fight to protect your driver’s license. We understand that clients often need their vehicles to get to work or handle other obligations. Our attorneys work to keep you legal to drive.
We also litigate tenaciously to reduce fines and penalties. Our attorneys submit all court documents and make recommendations to the court that provide you with the best possible result.
Our judicial system rests on the presumption of innocence. Just because you have been arrested doesn’t mean that you are guilty of DUI. For this reason, you need an experienced Las Vegas criminal defense attorney. We investigate the charges brought against you and assert any affirmative defenses. No one deserves a bad rap. That’s why we work with our clients to determine whether the prosecution can prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
