Dale is a fantastic lawyer and one of the only people I would trust to handle a DUI for a client, which is why I send all my clients to him for these matters. He understands the science of blood and breathe test, which is what it takes to be great in this area of law.

Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered
Q. Is there a statute of limitations on DUI Charges?
A: Yes, for most misdemeanor charges the statute of limitation is one year. However, if your charge is a potential felony DUI, the State would have three years to file (in Nevada).
Q. Car accident, I was dui tested but the other driver was not. Is that right or should she have been tested as well?
A: No, they would only elevate a traffic accident investigation to a DUI investigation if they had independent grounds to suspect you of DUI. They must not have suspected the other driver of DUI or they would have investigated and potentially arrested him/her. I have represented many clients for DUI that were stopped at a red light and got rear-ended by another driver. You "got the DUI test" because law enforcement suspected you of DUI, not because you were suspected of causing an accident.
Q. in Nevada, wht happens to someone who committed one domestic battery within 7 yr period & failed to complete classes?
A: The individual is subject to his sentence terms. Was there a suspended sentence? If not, the individual is subject to the Court's contempt power (up to $500 in fines and up to 25 days in jail).
