If you are arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Nevada, don't take your charge lightly. The authorities in this state take a dim view of drivers who get behind the wheel of vehicles when they have had too much to drink. If you are convicted on these charges, there will be repercussions, and chances are they will include a fine, jail time and even losing your license for a time period.
You need a good defense attorney with knowledge of the law and courtroom experience on your side who defend you on these charges. The law office of Fahrendorf, Viloria, Oliphant & Oster, LLP, has a good reputation in Nevada and can help you with possibly getting the charges against you mitigated or maybe even dropped.
One way we do this is by seeing if the person who administered your breathalyzer was trained and was qualified to perform this task. Sometimes, an unqualified police officer will make the mistake of not waiting for approved officers to give this form of drunk driving evaluation. It may come out also that the breathalyzer machine improperly calibrated or not working properly.
Another issue that may arise for the authorities is that they may not have had any basis at all for initiating the traffic stop. This could potentially lead to getting your charges dropped.
We have over 30 years of experience in this field and can go to work for you immediately. Until your attorney arrives, it's best to remain calm and polite, but ask for your attorney to be present while you are questioned. You can then defer any questioning to your attorney. Don't delay in seeking legal assistance, as it can negatively impact your case.
