Traffic Tickets

Law enforcement aggressively monitors traffic for motorists who fail to comply with the law. Nevada will apply four points to your license if you fail to yield the right-of-way to another driver. You could receive six demerit points for careless driving and four for disobeying traffic signs and signals. Nevada has reciprocity agreements with other states. If you receive 12 or more points within a 12-month period, the state can suspend your license for six months or longer.

Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol are serious offenses that can result in harsh penalties. You could lose your license and spend time in jail, especially if someone is injured. If you receive a citation or are charged with a criminal offense, you need an experienced Las Vegas criminal defense lawyerwho understands the local court system and has a professional relationship with the local authorities.

Personal and work obligations may make it difficult for you to return to Las Vegas. If you do not appear as scheduled, the court can issue a bench warrant for your arrest. The facts in your particular case may enable us to appear in court on your behalf. Hiring a professional attorney can eliminate the requirement for you to return to Las Vegas for your court hearings and prepare your own defense. In the case of traffic violations, we can work with the local authorities to allow you to complete any court-ordered remedial training in your home state.
