It’s important for people accused of driving under the influence to know their rights and exercise them by retaining a skilled lawyer who will work to defeat or reduce the charge against them. Located in Las Vegas, the Miley Law Firm defends clients who have been accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. I have deep knowledge of the standards that apply in Nevada and use that to protect drivers against unwarranted charges and overzealous authorities.
Most Nevada drivers are considered legally intoxicated if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeds .08 percent. However, there are tougher standards for commercial vehicle operators (.04) and motorists under the age of 21 (.02). Whatever evidence the authorities claim to have against you, I’ll protect your rights and help you understand critical elements of the relevant law, such as:
Often, someone facing a drunk driving allegation is not familiar with the criminal justice system and the defenses that might be available. My experience helps accused motorists understand the case against them and challenge improper evidence.
A test result far in excess of the legal intoxication limit can lead to an aggravated DUI charge and potential penalties that are more serious than the standard punishments. If someone is extremely intoxicated, defined by a BAC that is at least .18 percent, they can face the tougher charge, pay a higher fine and be forced to use an ignition interlock device on their vehicle. You might also be subject to a harsher charge if you’re involved in an accident causing serious injury or have someone younger than age 15 in the car.
By thoroughly reviewing the facts, I can assess whether proper legal grounds existed for the DUI stop or if a testing error might have led to a false finding of intoxication. From there, I use what’s been learned to seek a dismissal, acquittal, reduced sentence or more lenient charge. When an alleged DUI incident results in someone else’s injury, it’s important to understand that you might also be named a defendant in a claim for civil damages.

"This law firm helped me tremendously. I ended up in a really nasty Divorce battle that scared the heck out of me. Miley was extremely confident and understood the law (and what protected me) and he put a plan together that got me the exact results he said it would. His office Manager Pam was as professional as they get. She always answered my calls and she was very prompt with whatever needed to be done (filing motion paperwork, mailings, etc). The work this team did was worth every dollar I spent." - ognewwavy

"I met with Miley on two occasions once for a consultation the other to decide if I'd use his service. Miley comes off as a strong attorney that will get you remedy(like most attorneys) which is good bc they want new clients. His staff is friendly & professional when it comes to there client needs. However, I never used Miley Law Firm because at each meeting I felt rushed as if Miley wasn't listening to what I needed achieved but wanted me to pay to get started. That was a problem for me my situation was very complex and needed to be evaluated thourghly to represent me. I didn't see Miley doing that in fact all I saw coming was invoices in the near future from Miley not breaking my case down strategically. " - Paris Baker
