Challenging DUI Evidence in Reno, NV

Whether you are a resident of Reno, you are in the city to visit with family and friends or you are here on business, one of the last things you want to take place is to be pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). Being charged with DUI can be a very humbling and embarrassing experience. One moment you are having a drink with friends or colleagues and the next you are performing field sobriety tests on the side of the road. A DUI conviction goes on your permanent criminal record and can have a long-lasting impact on your personal life, professional career and your future.

If the officer who pulled you over has probable cause and reason to believe you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you will quickly find yourself being placed under arrest. Even the basic action of getting behind the wheel of your vehicle after you have been drinking, regardless of whether you intend to drive anywhere or you plan to "sleep it off," could be enough to warrant charges of DUI. Nevada law states that as long as you are in control of your vehicle, and providing that you have a significant concentration of alcohol in your system, you could be facing heavy penalties if you are convicted.

If you have been arrested for DUI in Reno or one of the surrounding communities, the best chance you have of getting the charges against you dismissed, reduced or achieving an acquittal in court is to hire an experienced DUI attorney. For more than two decades I have been helping those accused of DUI fight the charges they face. I have extensive experience in the field of DUI law and have been fully trained by a certified NHTSA instructor on the same Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and DUI Detection techniques that law enforcement officers are required to complete.

This training helps me uncover inconsistencies and discrepancies in the prosecution's case, challenge DUI evidence, and conduct thorough cross-examinations of arresting officers and other key witnesses. Inadequately calibrated machines, illegal police stops, the improper administration of tests, false positives on drunk driving tests, and other flaws in the evidence can open the door to a case dismissal. By aggressively challenging the DUI evidence in your case, I may be able to help you avoid conviction. To get legal representation to fight DUI charges, contact The Law Office of Walter B.
