Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

I am an experienced DUI and criminal defense Lawyer, and I have successfully represented clients throughout Nevada, Placer and Sierra counties for diverse cases including Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Drug Possession/Sales, Domestic Violence, Vehicular Manslaughter and Sexual Assault since 1999. For examples of cases, check out my website at MY LOCAL CONTACTS HELP YOU!

In addition, as a Truckee Lawyer I have represented numerous clients in DMV Administrative Suspension Hearings, Probation and Parole Violation Hearings, Setting aside Convictions, and Reduction of Felonies to Misdemeanors.

I am passionate about responsible and legal use of medical marijuana and strongly and fairly representing those who have been harshly punished by past marijuana laws and the legal system. If you have been persecuted for felony possession, sales or production, I may be able to reduce your charges to misdemeanors or remove them from your record altogether. As your local attorney here in Truckee, I’m here to help.

My office is located in downtown Truckee, just blocks away from the courthouse. Hiring local counsel is a benefit to you!

Q. What sentence will be put upon me for a plea deal for vehicular homicide while also the 3rd dui in 10 yrs ?
A: It generally depends on the jurisdiction what the ultimate outcome will be, but it also depends on whether you are charged with gross vehicular manslaughter (which is a 10 year maximum sentence) or regular (which is a 4 year maximum sentence).
Q. Vc 23215f. The officer smeeled marijauna and with no FST forced a blood test ? Now what?
A: I agree with Mr. Karas's answer, I would only add to be sure to hire a skilled lawyer in the area where your arrest occurred who is familiar with the workings of the court to advise you on the procedures in the jurisdiction where you are being prosecuted.
Q. I am applying for teacher credential and my.dui paperwork shows pled nolo contendere and got probation misd DUI.. put?
A: Nolo contender is Latin for no contest, which means the same thing as guilty for purposes of criminal court but cannot be used against you in a civil proceeding (if someone is suing you for money). So unfortunately that does mean you were convicted.
