If you are accused of a DUI you should strongly consider hiring an attorney who handles DUIs. You could be facing jail, prison, suspended driving privileges, fines, mandatory classes, suspended jail sentences, interlock devices, SCRAM devices, AA, drug testing, counseling, higher insurance and more.
You do not know if you have a good case or not. An attorney can spot issues that an ordinary person might overlook and use to your advantage. There may be an issue with the stop, the test used to determine your BAC, Nevada specific requirements and more.
Just because you had a BAC above .08 and were driving does not mean your case has no chance. After your attorney has received the discovery (the evidence against you) and thoroughly reviews it, no one knows how strong of a case you have. This is one of the main reasons you pay an attorney. He or she needs to go through all the facts to see what kind of defense you may have or any facts that might be used to negotiate a lesser offense.
Take the time to at least consult with an attorney about your DUI. A good sign to look for in an attorney is one that wants to know all the facts relating to the arrest and possible unique facts specific to you, such as medical conditions. This is a good sign an attorney is thinking about all the possible defenses that might apply to you. So if you have been charged with a DUI, speak with a attorney as soon as possible.
