Las Vegas First-Time DUI Attorney

First-Time DUI Penalties

Las Vegas has earned a reputation for being the city of endless parties, non-stop gambling and bottomless booze. With alcoholic beverages being served 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the law enforcement in Las Vegas has taken a proactive approach to keeping the roads safe and accident-free. That is why the penalties for a DUI offense are so harsh, even for a first-time offender.

The state of Nevada will typically treat a DUI offense as a misdemeanor, but the offense can be elevated to a felony charge depending on the factors involved.

Consequences for a first-time DUI conviction can include:

  • Anywhere from 2 days to 6 months in jail, or at least 96 hours of community service if court-approved
  • Fines ranging from approximately $400 up to $1200, plus additional fees
  • Mandatory completion of an approved 8-hour DUI school (may be done online)
  • Possible required installation of an ignition interlock device for 3 to 6 months
  • Suspension of your driver's license for 90 days (with the possibility of acquiring a restricted license in the meantime)

These charges can have a significant impact on your everyday lifestyle, and may cast an unwanted shadow over your future. If you are looking to fight your DUI charges and avoid these serious penalties, talk to a legal expert at The Brown Law Offices.

Defending Drivers in Las Vegas and Surrounding Areas

There are several ways that a person can be charged with a DUI offense. In most cases, a police officer will administrate a field sobriety test or a breath test to determine if the driver's blood alcohol content is above the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Police officers are always on the alert for intoxicated drivers in Las Vegas, and sometimes they may issue a DUI without concrete evidence in an attempt to keep the roads safe.

All drivers in Nevada are part of the implied consent law, which means that drivers have impliedly agreed to a test of their blood or breath for alcohol just by obtaining a Nevada driver's license or by traveling on Nevada roads. If you have been accused of a DUI in or around Las Vegas, contacting a Las Vegas DUI attorney is the first step in avoiding conviction and penalties.
