Henderson, Nevada, DUI Defense

The seriousness of DUI cases has increased dramatically over the 20 years since I began practicing law in Nevada. I have watched as prosecutors become less and less willing to negotiate and police officers have become more aggressive with stops and arrests. Even a first time DUI charge carries serious penalties, and for many of my clients this is their first experience in the criminal system.

At the office of Edward F. Gonciarz Attorney & Counselor at Law, I work to make sure that your rights are protected and that you have access to a strong defense and all of the legal options available. Whether you have been arrested on a drunk driving charge or drug related DUI, my goal is to help you find the right solution for your case.

Protecting Your Rights

There are numerous issues that need to be fully evaluated and addressed in reviewing a DUI arrest. Just as police officers are building their case toward an eventual conviction from the moment they pull you over, you have the right to fully review the validity of their actions as well.

My office will thoroughly review your case and evaluate a range of questions, such as:

  • Did law enforcement have a reason to pull you over?
  • How was the field sobriety test administered?
  • Did police follow proper procedure during testing and arrest?
  • Were you made aware of your rights?
  • Was a breath test properly conducted?

Many of my clients are facing a first offense DUI charge, and come into the process not realizing how immediate and serious the impact of even the arrest can be. I will guide you to help you protect your driver's license or pursue a temporary license so that you can continue to work.

Even if you are under the influence of legally prescribed prescription drugs such as sleeping pills or pain killers, you can be arrested for, charged with and convicted of a DUI offense. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will work with you at every stage to seek the right resolution for you.
