24 May Las Vegas DUI Attorney Reviews
If you have been arrested for DUI in Las Vegas, you are probably scared and confused as far as what is going to happen next. If you are anything like most of the people who get arrested for DUI, you just made a simple mistake in judgment and started driving home once you felt all right to drive. The unfortunate fact is that anything more than about one drink is going to put you right on the limit of what is legally allowed as far as BAC, and most people don’t feel drunk after one drink. If you have had one drink in an hour, you will need to wait for an hour following drinking it before you can safely drive. This is not a hard and fast rule, but instead is a guideline that will get most people to the point of having a BAC under .08%, which is Nevada’s limit for adults. If you had a beer and a half in one hour, you are probably going to test over the limit if you get pulled over. If that is the case and you see the cops behind you, it is important that you refuse to take the field sobriety tests. Too many people think that they have to take them, or that the cop will let them go if they do. If you are over the legal limit you are going to get arrested, so it is better to get arrested for refusing to take the tests than it is to fail them. If you refuse, at least you didn’t give them any evidence to use against you. It is also important to answer “no” when they ask you if you have been drinking tonight. This will also be used against you. Unfortunately if you are reading this you have probably already been arrested and may or may not have done these things. Either way, we will work to figure out the best path forward to getting the case dropped or at least reduced to a lesser charge like reckless driving.
If you are looking on the internet for “DUI attorney reviews” in order to make your decision of which lawyer to call, keep in mind that most people who get a DUI and get it dismissed are not going to post about it online. For that reason, you can expect that a lot of the DUI attorney reviews are not real, either written by the attorney themselves or by their friends. While there is little that can be done to stop this practice, it will generally still cause DUI attorneys to be put into your search results even if they are not very good. The best method of selecting a DUI attorney to represent you is to ask people that you actually know for a reference, and once you have a short list of DUI attorneys call the ones that seem the best. If they are willing to spend time on your case it is a good sign. If they rush you like you are just another number to them, move on to the next. When you are ready to choose the best, just call us.
