A Proven Record In Drunk Driving Defense
Many states have now lowered the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit from .10 to .08% for adults. More than a dozen states have passed Zero Tolerance laws that prohibit drivers under 21 years old from having any measurable amount of alcohol in their blood system. As the legal limits decrease, the chances of being charged with drunk driving increase if you choose to drink and drive. Have you been arrested for drunk driving? You need the skill and expertise of an experienced Nevada DUI defense lawyer to see you through the complicated legal maze that awaits you.

- Challenging the field sobriety test results
- Questioning the reason for the initial traffic stop
- Determining whether the breath test or blood alcohol test was administered properly
- Determining whether the police officer violated your rights in any way

DUI Involving Minors: Nevada’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ Law
A person under 21 charged with a DUI in Nevada faces largely the same criminal penalties as anyone else (in addition to minor consumption charges). But if you or your son/daughter are facing these charges, you have a lot more at stake than meets the eye. A conviction could hamper the educational and employment prospects of the accused for years to come.
While adults can have up to .08% alcohol in their system and still drive legally, that standard does not apply to those under the age of 21. Minors caught driving with any detectable amount of alcohol in their blood are charged with drunk driving. Prosecutors take this zero tolerance law very seriously and will likely pursue the maximum criminal penalties.
Although this may have been a one-time mistake, the consequences you face are very real. In addition to fines, jail time and loss of your drivers’ license, you may be expelled from school. You may lose your job and have difficulty finding another one. Our DUI defense attorneys understand how important the outcome of this case is to your present and your future. We will do everything in our power to help you avoid the consequences of a criminal conviction.
