DUI Attorney in Lyon County

Call Merrill Law Right Away at (775) 302-2624

While most people know that driving intoxicated is against the law, not everyone knows how to respond to being pulled over and accused of doing so. A driver will likely face DUI charges if they are found driving under the influence of alcohol (with a BAC of 0.08% or higher) or a controlled substance. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence, it is important that you retain a Lyon County DUI attorney who will handle your case seriously from the start.

At Merrill Law, we have an extensive understanding of criminal law including Nevada’s DUI laws. When your case is placed in our hands, you can rest assured that our firm will fight aggressively for your future.

Please give us a call today at (775) 302-2624 or contact us online to set up a case consultation.

Building a Defense for Your DUI Charges

Hiring a legal firm right after your arrest is essential for a number of reasons. First, we will be able to explain your charges and the potential consequences you may face. We can then investigate the evidence against you and even speak to witnesses if necessary. At Merrill Law, we understand what it takes to build strong defense strategies that hold up against the prosecution's accusations.

Our goal is to protect you against the consequences of a conviction. The exact consequences of a DUI conviction depend on a few factors such as your criminal history, BAC at the time of the arrest, and whether any harm was done to other vehicles or individuals.

The consequences you may face for a first-time conviction include:

  • 24 to 96 hours of community service
  • Two days to six months in jail
  • Fines from $400 to $1,000
  • Court costs
  • Nevada Victim Impact Panel
  • Alcohol/drug dependency evaluation
  • Nevada Victim Impact Panel
