Attorney Mathew A. Work has successfully defended hundreds of DUI (Driving Under the Influence) cases in Reno and all Northern Nevada courts. We understand what is on the line when you are facing DUI or DWI charges. You risk losing your job, career, driver’s license, your ability to travel and perhaps the ability to provide for your family. In addition, the court and district attorney typically seek charges that can be devastating both financially and emotionally.
As a former criminal prosecutor, I have experienced the system from the inside. I know the inner workings of the prosecutor’s office, their undisclosed policies, and how they attempt to rack up as many convictions as possible. I began my own law firm, Carlson & Work, to utilize that insider expertise and experience to even the playing field for those facing driving under influence charges. Here are the potential penalties:

Adequately Defending a DUI Charge
A DUI charge can be quite overwhelming. Thousands of people are killed or permanently disabled each year due to someone driving while intoxicated or impaired after consuming alcohol. DUI laws in Nevada grant very little leniency to drunk drivers. In fact, a DUI conviction can result in incarceration and you could lose your job in the process. The suspension of your driver’s license when you are convicted can impede your ability to get to work or school. It can affect all other daily tasks. That’s why you need to call our DUI lawyers to assist you.
First, let me start by saying I have tried over three-hundred DUI cases at trial. As a former City Attorney, I was tasked with prosecuting DUI charges, daily. What I was routinely surprised by was how often defense attorneys would plead their clients… without knowing if I had my case ready for trial. Ultimately, what this means, is the prosecutor has a much tougher job than most realize. In a way, all their stars must line up at trial if they wish to obtain a prosecution. You need to hire a Reno DUI attorney who understands exactly what is required to obtain the best outcome for your case.
