DUI Drug charges require an aggressive defense attorney

Posted By Joey Gilbert Law || 22-Sep-2011

With the kick-off of the 16th annual Street Vibrations motorcycle rally and music festival starting yesterday, Reno Police has beefed up its patrol. Tens of thousands of motorcycle riders and enthusiasts all riding and partying for 5 days can lead to numerous accidents and arrests.

A Reno DUI defense lawyer should be consulted whenever a defendant is facing a drunk driving charge. In cases where prescription drug use is alleged, we will investigate whether a blood test was conducted or what other evidence police are citing in making such accusations. It will be up to the state to prove this case; failure to do so will result in a reduction or dismissal of the charges. Drunk driving charges are often defensible. That can be particularly true of charges that allege drugs were responsible for impairment; such cases can be very difficult to prove.

Additionally, it will be important for an attorney to aggressively fight the child endangerment charge and to make sure the client’s rights are protected when dealing with the child welfare agencies. Failure to aggressively fight these charges, or to comply with necessary terms of the bureaucracy, can seriously impact your parental rights and may result in long-term involvement of child welfare authorities in your affairs.

If you are facing drunk driving charges in Reno or criminal charges in connection with a Nevada car accident, contact the Reno criminal defense attorneys at Joey Gilbert Law to discuss your rights. Call (775) 574-4774 today for a free confidential consultation. Se Habla Español.
