Clark County Drunk Driving Defense Attorney
If you have been charged with driving drunk in Las Vegas, also known as DWI (driving while intoxicated), or DUI (driving under the influence) in Nevada, you are facing some serious penalties.
Drunk driving convictions cost.
Nevada drunk driving penalties - - as defined under Nevada law in Nevada Revised Statutes NRS 484C - - include mandatory fines, classes, an increase in the cost of your insurance, the loss of your driver's license and even jail time. While many people may think “it's just a Misdemeanor,” when considering a drunk driving offense, in actuality, the cost of a DUI offense is staggering. Many experts estimate that the total cost of a first offense DUI conviction, when you factor in costs for towing, bail, alcohol evaluations, required classes, victim impact panels, mandatory fines, court costs, driver's license reinstatement fees and the like, is somewhere between $10,000.00 and $20,000.00. When you include the years of increased costs of auto insurance after a DUI conviction, that cost can double. To put it into perspective, going to jail and losing tens of thousands of dollars means that drunk driving is not “just another misdemeanor” offense that is minor in nature. In fact, any criminal law expert will tell you that DUI cases can be some of the most complicated and complex cases there are.
