Criminal defense lawyers assist those accused of DUI this holiday

The spirit of the season is upon us in Nevada, and this includes not just feasting, caroling and gift-giving, but also "spirits" such as those found in your favorite eggnog, mixed drink or even a cold beer or a fine wine. Many people in Nevada have a drink or two while celebrating the holidays and usually this is not a cause for concern. However, the situation can quickly ratchet up if a person is pulled over on accusations of drunk driving after leaving a holiday celebration.

Being convicted of drunk driving is a serious offense. A person convicted of drunk driving could end up losing his or her driver's license, could face significant fines and might even have to spend time in jail. Moreover, after serving their sentence they may find their driver's insurance premiums have shot up and they now have a criminal record to contend with.

People should not just give up, however, if pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving. First, just like those accused of any other crime, motorists accused of drunk driving have the right to remain silent. They do not have to say anything about the situation to the police without first consulting their criminal defense attorney. Moreover, an attorney can also assess the situation to determine if their client's constitutional rights were violated. If they were, it is possible that the charges against the driver will be dropped.

However, a person may never know what their rights are or what defenses they have at their disposal if they don't reach out to an attorney. At our firm we assess our client's situations on a case-by-case basis. We understand what is at stake should our clients be convicted of drunk driving, so we work vigorously to protect our clients from these harsh consequences. Our webpage on drunk driving may be of use to those who want more information on this topic.
