The time Paris Hilton got a DUI

On September 7th 2006 at approximately 12:30 at midnight, Paris Hilton was pulled over for driving erratically in Los Angeles. The officer on duty was Martha Garcia, and she said that it was very apparent that the person driving the car was not fully in control of the car.

This is one thing I tell people all the time: when you drink you get this liquid confidence where you think that your driving is fine. However, to any outside observer watching you drive it is quite obvious that something is wrong with the driver.

This is especially true for cops who are on the lookout for erratic drivers at midnight. These cops are trained to look at driving patterns, and to quickly spot who might be drinking and driving.

With services like Uber and Lyft which now make getting a ride much cheaper than a taxi, there really is no excuse for driving drunk anymore.

The amount of public scrutiny that Paris Hilton received from this arrest, culminated  in her not only going to jail but also having a breakdown. It can be seen either way; either this was her lowest point or her best point. What is known is that after this episode, Paris started to turn her life around.

Come to think of it I haven’t seen her in the news for quite a few years now. Good for you Paris for pulling it together.

Now should you make the very bad decision of driving while under the influence, and you do get pulled over in Las Vegas,  the first thing you need to do is to contact a Las Vegas DUI lawyer. Now it can be any DUI lawyer, of course I prefer If you hired me, but really any DUI lawyer that is worth his salt will be able to get the job done.

I have over 20 plus years of dealing with DUI cases in Las Vegas, and in many cases I can arrange for my clients to skip Court time, and of course skip jail time in the process.  Not always of course, but I do give you a fighting chance.

You do need to navigate the court system properly, and this is where my experience comes in. You should not expect that you will be able to know the ins and the outs of Nevada DUI Law by yourself. I know that with the advent of the internet and Google, everybody is now an internet lawyer. But even the internet, cannot prepare you for the different intricacies that are apparent in every court in every district. There are just some things that you can’t know, because you don’t spend everyday in a courthouse like I do.

So I humbly request you consider me as your DUI lawyer, but even if you don’t please heed my words: hire a DUI lawyer if you get pulled over for a DUI.
