Las Vegas DUI Attorney
Driving Under the Influence
Driving under the influence (DUI) carries heavy penalties for conviction and can in certain cases be charged as a felony. This may occur if you have several DUIs within a certain period or if aggravating circumstances exist, such as causing the death of another due to DUI or drunk driving. Even for a first offense without aggravating circumstances, penalties can include the following:
- Up to 6 months in jail
- Fines of up to $1,000
- License suspension up to 90 days with possible license restrictions after this period
- Mandatory of an ignition interlock device (IID)
- DUI School
- DUI Treatment
Too many people plead guilty and accept these penalties, not realizing that DUI cases are not as open and shut as some would have you believe. Therefore, it is vital you have an experienced Las Vegas criminal defense attorney to represent you and fight for your rights.
Las Vegas Drunk Driving Lawyer
At Okabe & Haushalter, our vast experience with DUI and drunk driving defense means we can attack your case creatively and aggressively from the outset. We will obtain the police reports, lab reports, maintenance history of the breath machine and other relevant documents in search of information or evidence that will contribute to your defense. It is possible that your DUI case may be thrown out due to our discovery that the arresting officer had no just cause to pull you over in the first place. Otherwise, field sobriety tests and blood or breath tests may be found to have been administered incorrectly, misread, or otherwise lacking in reliability. This can cause the case against you to collapse on lack of evidence. Whatever is needed in your case, we will fight in an effort to defend your rights and freedom. We can also represent you in a
DMV hearing in an attempt to protect your driving privileges.
