23 May A DUI Attorney Near Me
If you have been arrested for DUI in Las Vegas, you are probably wondering what is going to happen next. Chances are that you were pulled over and failed field sobriety tests and were arrested and taken to jail. You were probably either bailed out or spent a day or two behind bars and were then released with a promise to appear in front of a judge. The success or failure of getting the charges against you dropped or potentially reduced to reckless driving is going to have a lot to do with what happened on the side of the road when you were pulled over. If you submitted to the field sobriety tests and failed, or if you answered “yes” when the police officer asked if you had been drinking, that evidence will be used against you in your trial. If you refused the tests on the roadside and were arrested for not complying, you will also be facing the same charges but without the majority of evidence against you that is generally presented. Either way, it is critical that you do not get convicted of DUI. In Nevada, a DUI conviction can result in jail time, fines, community service and a suspension of your driver’s license. If it is your second or third, you are probably facing some jail time. We cannot stress enough that you need to take this charge seriously if you are going to keep your life on track.
Some people will go online and Google “DUI attorney near me” in order to get a list of possible lawyers to represent you in court. They might start looking at those websites to see who has the cheapest rates for representing DUI cases. This is the wrong way to think about it, and can really end up costing you in the long run. You should not choose your DUI lawyer based on how close their office is to your house or work, which is what Google is going to return to you if you use that search phrase. ow convenient their office is to your home is not a reflection of how experienced they are as a criminal defense lawyer. How much they charge is also a terrible factor to use to decide who will represent you. If they charge a very minimal amount, they are either inexperienced, or they are trying to get as many cases as possible. If your lawyer is handling a huge amount of cases every day, you are not going to be given the attention that is necessary for you to potentially beat this case. Instead, it is a good chance that they will simply use a template that they use for all DUI cases, asking for a reduced charge and hoping for the best. You need someone better than that defending you, because the stakes are just too high.
