Nevada "GHB" Possession Laws
Explained by Las Vegas Criminal Defense Lawyers

GHB-related drug offenses are punished with especially high prison terms in Nevada. In addition, having narcotics convictions on your record looks very bad to employers.

Our Las Vegas criminal defense lawyers have a long history of fighting GHB charges. In many cases we can get it reduced to a lesser crime or sometimes dismissed altogether.

The first thing we do is to try to persuade the D.A. to offer a good plea bargain. That usually works. But know that we are experienced trial attorneys as well. If necessary we were always ready to take your case to a jury.
