Common Las Vegas Crimes We Defend
Although our Las Vegas criminal lawyers defend clients against all misdemeanor and felony charges, some of the most common cases we take include:
Las Vegas Battery Domestic Violence Charges: Innocent Clark County residents may find themselves wrongly accused of battery domestic violence by angry or jealous spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends. We can investigate the case on your behalf and help you fight back.
DUI / DWI / Drunk Driving: It may be possible to avoid a Las Vegas DUI conviction and a Nevada drivers license suspension, even if you were arrested and even if your BAC reads over the .08 limit. Our Las Vegas DUI defense lawyers can put the case under a microscope, find where the police and crime lab went wrong, and use these defenses to your advantage.
Las Vegas Solicitation for Prostitution laws: Although prostitution is legal in licensed brothels in some Nevada counties, it is illegal throughout Clark County. Nevertheless, if you got arrested for a first offense solicitation of prostitution charge in Las Vegas, we can often get the charge reduced or dismissed through a diversion program.
Nevada Crime of Lewdness with a Child under 14: It is a crime in Nevada to touch a child for sexual purposes even if the touching did not involve sex organs. However prosecutors may agree to drop the charges if we can demonstrate that the defendant had no "sexual intent."
Nevada Crime of Sexual Assault (rape): After murder, rape is the most serious charge in Nevada and can carry life in prison. But judges realize that many defendants are falsely accused, and it is frequently possible to get sexual assault charges reduced or dismissed altogether.
Nevada Crime of Indecent Exposure: Exposing yourself in public ... or in a private area where others can see ... is a gross misdemeanor in Nevada. However we may be able to show that the D.A. has insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction.
Las Vegas Casino Markers: Failing to repay a Las Vegas casino marker (in a timely manner) can result in felony criminal charges. Often, however, we can work out an arrangement to get the casino marker repaid and the criminal charged dismissed.
Sealing Nevada criminal records. A conviction in Nevada generates a criminal record that can haunt someone when applying for a job, a loan or a state license. But we can assist you to seal and clear your NV criminal record, giving you a clean slate and a better chance in life.
Bail and Release Assistance for Nevada Jails
Is your loved one is being held at a local Nevada jail? Our criminal attorneys can assist you with Nevada bail and inmate release information, locating a Las Vegas bail bonds agent, and devising the best strategy to get the person released quickly. In addition to the Clark County Detention Center (Las Vegas Jail), we can assist you at the Henderson Jail, the Reno Washoe County Jail, the Mesquite Jail, the Laughlin Jail and the North Las Vegas Jail.
A Las Vegas Arrest Does NOT Mean Guilt Is Established
Merely being arrested for a Las Vegas criminal charge does not mean you are convicted or found guilty. On the contrary, you are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. To be convicted, the District Attorney must prove you guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. We want to stop that from happening.
A good Las Vegas criminal defense attorney knows how to find ways to help you get charges reduced or dismissed, and to get penalties minimized. It is important to be familiar with the judges, prosecutors, the Las Vegas police and the local Las Vegas criminal courts process. A thorough knowledge of the system, combined with an expert analysis of your case, can lead to a winning defense strategy.
