What to Expect from DWI or DUI Charges in Nevada
If you have been charged with a
first-time DUI or DWI, you will be facing two separate processes. One is the criminal
legal process in which you will have to go to court to enter a plea and
answer to the charges filed against you. Unless you have been involved
in an accident in which someone was injured or there was property damage,
you will probably be facing a misdemeanor charge.
The other proceeding is the
DMV hearing, which is a civil administrative process, where it is determined whether
or not you will lose your license in a suspension. We can represent you
at this hearing as well to fight to keep your driving privileges. If you
have been given a breath test at the time of your arrest, you will have
seven days from the date of your arrest to request this hearing.
Challenge Your DUI Charges with a Strategic Defense
Many people are concerned that the jury or judge will not listen to their
side of the story, especially when they're up against a police officer's
testimony and a tough prosecution. However, that is exactly what our firm
is here to do: give you a voice. We will make sure your side of the story
is heard and that we demonstrate any issues or flaws in the prosecution's
case against you.
Some of the strategic ways we can challenge your DUI include:
- Questioning the legality original traffic stop/arrest
- Proving the lack of evidence for the stop
- Demonstrating flaws in the test results
- Proving a breath test was not calibrated correctly
Showing the lack of reliability of
field sobriety tests
- Getting testimony from an expert witness
- Challenging an officer's testimony against you
- Proving an officer's lack of training in testing equipment
- Questioning and retesting chemical test results
When you hire Brown Law Offices, we can carefully review your arrest and
charges to craft the most effective and strategic approach to your case.
Our main goal is to find inconsistencies and flaws in the prosecutor's
case. From there, we can negotiate with the prosecutor to get the charges
against you reduced or dismissed or present your defense before the judge
in a bench trial.
