Getting arrested for DUI does not mean you will be convicted. Police misconduct, defective breathalyzers and crime lab mistakes may be enough to get your charges lessened or dismissed. Visit our page on Nevada DUI Laws to learn more.
Our Elko Nevada criminal defense lawyers aggressively investigate, negotiate, and litigate every case in pursuit of a charge reduction or full dismissal with no jail time. And in most cases our clients never have to appear in court themselves.
In this article, our Nevada criminal defense attorneys discuss:
Elko Municipal Court administers misdemeanor cases from within the city’s incorporated limits. In contrast, Elko Justice Court hears misdemeanor cases from Elko’s unincorporated areas as well as allfelonies that allegedly occurred anywhere in Elko.
The Elko County District Attorney’s Officeprosecutes criminal cases in Elko Justice Court. The office is located at 540 Court St, 2nd floor, Elko, NV 89801, and reachable at (775) 738-3101. Meanwhile, the Elko City Attorney prosecutes misdemeanors in Municipal Court.
It is possible. But a criminal defense attorney is often necessary to aggressively negotiate with the prosecutor in order to achieve a case dismissal or significant charge reduction.
8. Should I hire a lawyer?
Everyone facing criminal charges is strongly encouraged to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. Public defenders do not have the time or resources to thoroughly investigate every case. But private Elko criminal defense attorneys painstakingly search for every hole in the state’s evidence in order to convince prosecutors to drop or lessen the charges. And the reality is that prosecutors give better plea bargains to defendants with attorneys.
