Criminal lawyer in Reno & Northern Nevada


Jesse Kalter is a Practiced DUI Attorney That Knows How to Fight for Your Freedom

The stress associated with a DUI is overwhelming. An experienced DUI attorney can see you through this troubling time. There is no such thing as a slap on the wrist in Nevada when it comes to DUI charges. Someone charged with a drinking DUI or a marijuana DUI, or DWI, can face heavy fines, loss of their license, and even jail time.

In Nevada “Driving Under The Influence” means operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs to a degree that renders one unable to safely drive a vehicle in public. These vehicles include cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, and mopeds. It is not necessary to be “drunk” to get convicted of a DUI in Nevada. Hiring the right Reno DUI attorney is crucial to having the best DUI defense.

  • Faulty Testing Equipment–If it can be proven that test equipment was faulty then there may be reasonable doubt.
  • Margin of Error of the Test Results – There is a certain margin of error associated with each DUI roadside test.
  • Not on a Public Roadway – If the arrest did not happen on a public roadway then it can be proven that the arresting officer was not within his right to arrest anyone.
