Experienced DUI Defense Attorneys in Reno, NV

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, Work Law, to utilize that insider expertise and experience to even the playing field for those facing driving under influence charges. Here are the potential penalties:

First DUI Penalties in Nevada

  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Court appointed
  • Community Service
  • Suspended Drivers license
  • Fines up to $1,000
  • DUI Classes
  • Possible alcohol and drug evaluation

Second and Third DUI Penalties are MUCH Worse!

You need to hire a DUI defense attorney to limit your penalties and to give yourself a fighting chance. Don’t face the courts alone!

Expert Advice from a Top-Rated Reno DUI Lawyer

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.

Adequately Defending a DUI Charge

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.

I met Mr. work at a coffee shop and no idea he was an attorney. We would go to the same shop every morning bright and early and there was something about his personality that I always admired. He was always interested in other’s well-being. Fast forward three years and I needed my coffee buddy in a very heated custody battle. The same concern for others that he showed during our mornings at the coffee shop was just as a parent during the proceedings. I am very grateful to Mr. Work and his colleagues.

I was recently charged with a DUI and retained Mathew Work. They say a good lawyer makes all the difference, they do. Before meeting with Mathew, I met with one of the billboard-type attorneys. The entire meeting was the [other] attorney bragging about all the people he knew and how he would “walk me” through the process. Basically, how he was going to help me get convicted. Mathew, on the other hand, explained the entire process of a DUI conviction, what the DA would need and what he would attack. He did just that, three days later, all charges were DROPPED! He. Is. The. Real. DEAL!

I can’t thank Work Law enough. They came through in one of my darkest hours. Krystal was godsend. She was kind, compassionate and on the ball throughout the entire case. Matthew was able to give tough criticism when I needed to hear it and skillfully attacked the opposing party at trial. He has a gift in the courtroom. They changed my life forever for the best. Thank you!!!

Attorney Mathew Work and his associate Rebecca Carlson were a dynamite team to work with. Their skills, personality and backgrounds offered multiple perspectives at my case. At trial, they both had strengths in representing me in my case. It was incredible to have two attorneys in the quart room for the price of one. This was a service that I didn’t realize was offered anywhere. At the end of the day, they thought their tails off and achieved a remarkable outcome in my case. I can’t thank Mr. Work and his team enough. I can’t leave out his senior paralegal Krystal and legal assistant Lauren. They are just so incredible.

When seeking legal representation, there were many factors that I considered. Chief among them were Legal Competence, Trial Experience, and Accessibility. After interviewing multiple attorney’s in the Reno area, Mathew was the clear choice to represent my case.As a former Deputy City Attorney with the City of Reno, Mathew is not only exceptionally well-versed with regards to the letter and spirit of the law, but also, he has a unique understanding of its application within the context of the local judicial environment there in Northern Nevada. Looking beyond his proven track record of successful litigation, Mathew is a warm, decent human being. I will continue to work with him in the future and would recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.

Work Law is the most honest and hard-working representation you will ever experience. Whether you are in need of family, defense, or business law, look no further than Work Law. Most importantly you get direct contact with Mr. Work. You will not be treated as “a number” like so many other law firms around. You will know he cares about your case. He will work hard to fight for you and you will go to court knowing all the different possible outcomes and what every step entails. Trust me when I say Work Law will go to court for you with the finest representation you will ever come across.

I have never met a more honest person in my life. Mathew always brings his “A” game, day in and day out. If you want an attorney that strengthens his argument, instead of raising his voice to get his point across, Mathew Work is your go to guy. He is by your side every step of the way.
