  • Unlike other states like California, Nevada doesn't have a law that pertains to carjacking. Instead, carjacking is charged as a cluster of crimes. This means that a person who is convicted under these charges may be facing serious time in prison. That's why your priority should be hiring an experienced criminal defense team like the practitioners at the Potter Law Offices. If someone is accused of carjacking in Nevada, they may be charged with grand larceny of a motor vehicle, robbery, assault and battery and attempted murder.

  • Defending Against DUI Charges Driving under the influence, or DUI, is a serious offense in Nevada. In the past several years, the penalties for first time and subsequent arrests have become more severe. Law enforcement has increased their DUI prevention measures. It is possible to be arrested and charged for an offense that you did not commit. Some of the indicators that police use to detect drunk driving are bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, combative or nervous behavior. These signs can also be attributed to allergies, working extended hours and health issues. Medical conditions, such as low blood sugar and epilepsy, can cause symptoms that resemble intoxication.

The average person spends two or more hours each day in their car. It’s inevitable that you will eventually violate a traffic law and receive a ticket.
