DUI Defense in Las Vegas
A Las Vegas DUI arrest can be scary, embarrassing, and confusing. Oftentimes, those that are arrested for a DUI in Las Vegas are not people typically thought of as criminals. Doctors, lawyers, mothers, and even police officers are routinely arrested in Las Vegas for DUI. Whenever a person is arrested for a DUI in Las Vegas two things immediately happen: the court takes action and the DMV takes action. Oftentimes, people are overwhelmed with all of the consequences that arise out of a DUI in Las Vegas. We're here to help.
Do I need a lawyer when I get a DUI in Las Vegas?
The short answer is yes. When you get a DUI in Las Vegas, two days in jail (that can sometimes be converted to community service!) are mandatory. Whenever jail is mandatory a lawyer is required. If you get a DUI in Las Vegas and cannot afford an attorney, they will appoint one for you. However, oftentimes the appointed lawyer is overworked, and will only focus on the criminal side of your Las Vegas DUI, neglecting the DMV and your driving privileges. Hiring an attorney for your DUI is the best move you can make. That's where we come in.
When should I contact a DUI lawyer in Las Vegas?
When you get a DUI in Las Vegas you should contact a lawyer immediately. There are two reasons for this:
- The DMV WILL suspend your license if you are simply arrested for a DUI.
- Courts sometimes impose pretrial release conditions even when there is no criminal complaint!
Goodwin Law Group, PLLC can help. The DMV license can be appealed, but it is time-sensitive. If you're subjected to pretrial conditions and no complaint is filed, you may be entitled to having those conditions removed. But if you don't act fast, you might miss out.
