Nevada Charges DUI

If arrested for DUI for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs an experienced criminal defense attorney explores whether the initial stop of a vehicle is proper, leading to a lawful search of the vehicle for controlled substances or whether a field sobriety test should have been conducted.

Just because a driver is speeding does not of itself constitute probable cause to search a vehicle. One drink prior to driving does not usually take one over the .08 amount which could lead to a conviction. And tests are not 100% accurate as there is a certain margin of error in the testing equipment.

Oftentimes an experienced attorney can reach a lesser charge that would prevent large fines, long periods of probation and suspension of driving privileges.
