We Fight to Help You Keep Your Driver’s License

dui2-1DMV and your Driver’s License

As a trusted Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney, I am determined to help you keep your Driver’s License after you have been charged with a DUI in Southern Nevada. During your free phone or in-person consultation, I will speak with you regarding all the options relating to your case.

As your DUI Attorney, I will obtain your Discovery which includes the police reports, lab reports, maintenance history of the breathalyzer machine, and all other evidence relating to your case. I then run motions and negotiate with the Clark County District Attorney in order to fight to have your DUI charged drastically reduced.

In addition to that process, there is a second proceeding – the Nevada DMV hearing – to determine whether your Driver’s License will be suspended. It may be possible to win the hearing and avoid license suspension; if not, your license may be suspended according to the following, depending on which test you were given when you were pulled over, breath or blood:

dui2-2Breathalyzer – if the breathalyzer returns a reading of 0.08 or higher, the Nevada DMV will automatically and immediately suspend your license for 90 days. The police will give you notice of this along with further instructions (usually printed on a pink sheet of paper). From that point on, you have 7 days to request a hearing at the DMV. The DMV will set the hearing for 30-60 days after they receive your request. Your license will only be valid during the window of time that you are waiting for the hearing. If your license is suspended for 90 days, you may obtain a restricted license after 45 days of suspension.

Blood test – blood test results take several months from the time of processing until they are sent to the DMV. You should periodically check with the DMV to make sure they have not sent you a notice of suspension already; you need to be absolutely certain that they have your current address on file, or you may not receive the notice. If the blood lab returns a reading of 0.08 or higher, the Nevada DMV will suspend your license for 90 days; your license will be considered suspended from the date that they send you the notice. From the date that you receive the notice by mail, you have 7 days to request a hearing at the DMV. The DMV will set the hearing for 30-60 days after they receive your request. Your license will only be valid during the window of time that you are waiting for the hearing. If your license is suspended for 90 days, you may obtain a restricted license after 45 days of suspension.

What Our Clients are Saying

I was pleasantly surprised with this law office. I had a DUI from several months ago, and there was no way I was going to attempt to negotiate that on my own (I’d heard horror stories) so I called a few Las Vegas attorneys until I found Mark Coburn and decided he was my man.The Law Office manager was very helpful too. When I went in for my free consultation, he and Mark Coburn sat down with me in a professional, but soothing conference room (it even had a Buddha statue) and they took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered. I never felt like they were trying to “sell” me, but I got the impression they were aggressive in court, which of course I wanted!I was terrified about my DUI case because I have a clean record up until this point, and I didn’t know how they would possibly get this thing reduced considering I was, shameful to say, pretty darn drunk when I was pulled over and given the citation.Everything went exceptionally smoothly with my case. Good communication. Felt like they actually cared, and most importantly—my DUI was reduced to a reckless driving!!My fine was lowered, I didn’t have any community service or court appearances; basically I sat back and went on with daily life while they took care of the whole ordeal.I would definitely recommend Mark Coburn’s Law Office for DUIs or whatever other legal needs you have. I am one happy gal ...

This actually worked!! My warrant was quashed IMMEDIATELY. The attorney told me it would be quashed by the end of the day, but it was actually quashed within the hour. Couldn’t be happier. It’s hard to find a trustworthy Law Office in this town… thank you L.V.T.A. Staff!

Mark Coburn went out of his way to take the time to work on the special circumstances surrounding my case. My calls were even taken over the weekends by the office manager. Great service! I had everything cleared up without needing to go to court, which was important because I live out of state. I felt like this law office did everything in their power to get the job done right. A big thanks from me.

Awesome place to take care of traffic tickets.I’m so happy I found Mark Coburn’s LV Ticket Attorney Office. He has taken care of my speeding tickets twice so far, and both times have been good experiences.Everyone in the office is very professional and good at communicating with you about your case—and you get a letter in the mail once all is said and done, confirming your ticket case was successfully resolved.I highly recommend this attorney. There are some other places where you pay a $50 flat fee to have them take care of your tickets but then you still need to go to traffic school. Not with Mark Coburn. I got out of traffic school too, in addition to no points on my license.Totally worth it!

Mark Coburn was a huge help with my DUI case. It was actually my second DUI, and I had a warrant and a ticket to clear up on top of it. Coburn was able to get a few of the charges 100% dropped and the other charge reduced. My record is finally clean. For that I say thank you Attorney Coburn and crew.
Michael R.
So grateful to the Las Vegas Ticket Attorney office. My boyfriend had two moving violations from when we were visiting Las Vegas last spring and one of them had gone into warrant. Mark, Jenny, and Stephanie all helped us through the process. They were so on top of everything every step of the way. We really appreciate the follow-up phone calls during the times we requested. My boyfriend was nervous about trusting a Vegas Law Office way from out in NYC where we live, but it all came together without any blips. Thanks guys!!
