Reno, NV Criminal Defense Lawyer Fighting Penalties for DUI

Aggressive DUI lawyer

If you are pulled over for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, commonly known as a DWI, you need a skilled DUI attorney to protect your rights, your record and your freedom. Without qualified representation, your drivers license may be suspended indefinitely and you could face jail time. The Law Office of David R. Houston began contesting DUI cases more than three decades ago by uncovering details that lead to dismissal of DUI charges such as faulty blood testing, Breathalyzer® malfunctions and due process violations by law enforcement. Because pleading guilty to a DUI charge can impact your permanent record, your insurance, your license and even your ability to find new employment, call us to analyze your case before taking it into your own hands.

Consequences of a DWI

Traffic violations in Nevada are serious. When alcohol or drugs are added to mix, the severity of the punishment greatly increases. Without competent legal guidance, a DUI or DWI conviction adds to your criminal record. If you or a family member is arrested for drunk driving but not of the legal drinking age, additional consequences need to be addressed by a DUI law attorney. DUI penalties vary depending on whether this is your first DWI or if you have had multiple violations. The range of penalties include:

  • Driver license suspension
  • Revocation of driver license
  • Fines
  • Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in your car
  • Alcohol education
  • Traffic school
  • Probation
  • Suspended jail sentence
  • Jail time

To avoid automatic license suspension, you need to contact the DMV and a lawyer immediately. If your license is taken away temporarily, or even permanently, simple everyday activities turn into a challenge. With the help of a drunk driving lawyer, you may be able to obtain a restricted license that allows you to drive to and from work. This is just one of the steps the Law Office of David R. Houston takes to ensure you as much comfort as possible through this process.  By hiring a criminal defense attorney, you do not have to attend any of these proceedings unless you must testify or go to trial.
