Top-Rated DUI Lawyers & Defense Attorneys in Reno, NV

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:

First DUI Penalties in Nevada

  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Court appointed
  • Community Service
  • Suspended Drivers license
  • Fines up to $10,000
  • 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!

Law Firm Expectations:

The Law Firm’s reputation, reviews, and case results should speak for themselves. When you retain Carlson & Work, you will have an experienced and dedicated Reno family and divorce lawyer by your side. Furthermore, our firm believes that every family law client has their own story to tell. That is why we start the relationship off by ensuring we understand every aspect of your divorce, child custody or family law matter inside and out. Therefore, we ask that our clients take an active role in their family law case. That is the only way your story can be told.

I've got to give some real talk about my attorney, Mathew. At first, he might come off a bit rough around the edges, and I won't lie, it took me a minute to get used to it. But, as time went on, I started to truly appreciate that side of him. It's like his no-nonsense approach is actually one of his strengths. He cuts through the fluff, gets down to business, and genuinely has your back. Weirdly enough, I've come to love that about him. If you want someone straightforward and fiercely on your side, Mathew's the real deal.

I've got to share about my experience with my custody attorney, Lauren. Going through a custody battle is never easy, but Lauren was a true anchor throughout. She didn't just feed me legal jargon or false promises. She was honest from the get-go, even when the truth was hard to swallow. And you know how sometimes it feels like you're in the dark with legal stuff? Not with Lauren. She made sure I was always in the loop and understood each step. It felt like I had a friend guiding me, someone genuinely on my side. If you're diving into the maze of custody battles and need a steady hand, Lauren is the one you'd want by your side. She's been a godsend.

Expert Advice from a Top-Rated Reno DUI Lawyers

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.

DUI convictions require a massive amount of evidence

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.
