ACCOMPLISHED LAS VEGAS DUI LAWYER

NEVADA FIRM ADVOCATES FOR PEOPLE ACCUSED OF DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED

It’s important for people accused of driving under the influence to know their rights and exercise them by retaining a skilled lawyer who will work to defeat or reduce the charge against them. Located in Las Vegas, the Miley Law Firm defends clients who have been accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. I have deep knowledge of the standards that apply in Nevada and use that to protect drivers against unwarranted charges and overzealous authorities.

ESTABLISHED FIRM ASSISTS INDIVIDUALS ARRESTED FOR DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE

Most Nevada drivers are considered legally intoxicated if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeds .08 percent. However, there are tougher standards for commercial vehicle operators (.04) and motorists under the age of 21 (.02). Whatever evidence the authorities claim to have against you, I’ll protect your rights and help you understand critical elements of the relevant law, such as:

  • Penalties — Several penalties exist to punish people charged with driving under the influence, including fines, license suspension and the installation of ignition interlock devices that don’t let you start your car until you pass a breathalyzer test. Whenever possible, I look to limit or eliminate incarceration and other onerous penalties that significantly disrupt the lives of my clients.
  • Multiple offenses — How you handle a DUI charge might hinge on whether it is a first or second offense or if you’ve had multiple drunk driving convictions within the previous seven years. A first-time offender usually loses their driving privileges for six months and faces at least 48 hours of incarceration or community service. Upon a second conviction, the minimum sentence is 10 days (which might be served in home confinement), and the suspension runs for a year. After that, the penalty involves at least a year of prison. After reviewing your history, my firm develops a sound strategy geared to your situation.
  • Test refusal — Regardless of whether you are impaired or not, refusing to submit to a sobriety test after you have been arrested affects your ability to drive. A first refusal triggers a one-year license revocation. This is an administrative penalty, not a criminal charge, so the allegation cannot be fought in court.

Often, someone facing a drunk driving allegation is not familiar with the criminal justice system and the defenses that might be available. My experience helps accused motorists understand the case against them and challenge improper evidence.

SKILLED COUNSELOR DEFENDS DRIVERS FACING EXTREME AND AGGRAVATED DUI CHARGES

A test result far in excess of the legal intoxication limit can lead to an aggravated DUI charge and potential penalties that are more serious than the standard punishments. If someone is extremely intoxicated, defined by a BAC that is at least .18 percent, they can face the tougher charge, pay a higher fine and be forced to use an ignition interlock device on their vehicle. You might also be subject to a harsher charge if you’re involved in an accident causing serious injury or have someone younger than age 15 in the car.

THOROUGH ATTORNEY SEEKS DUI SENTENCE REDUCTION FOR CLIENTS

By thoroughly reviewing the facts, I can assess whether proper legal grounds existed for the DUI stop or if a testing error might have led to a false finding of intoxication. From there, I use what’s been learned to seek a dismissal, acquittal, reduced sentence or more lenient charge. When an alleged DUI incident results in someone else’s injury, it’s important to understand that you might also be named a defendant in a claim for civil damages.
