Every year thousands of law-abiding citizens in Clark County, Nevada are slapped with fines and lengthy prison sentences merely for selling or smoking a joint. Even patients protected under the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program can be jailed for growing too much pot.
Although marijuana is arguably less unhealthy and less addictive than such legal substances as beer and cigarettes, pot nevertheless remains criminal both federally and in the state of Nevada. And despite Las Vegas's reputation as "Sin City," Clark County enforces disproportionately harsh marijuana laws.
Furthermore, any immigrant or non-citizen who's convicted of any marijuana-related charges may be deported from the U.S! Unless the charge was for simple marijuana possession in Nevada of thirty (30) grams or less of marijuana, any drug charge is a removable offense for aliens.

A Powerful, Effective Advocate to Have in Your Corner
In my time of need I called on Neil Shouse and his law firm. It was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Not only did he step up to assist me, he went the extra mile in every sense of the word. I found Neil to be honest, professional, and tireless in his efforts on my behalf.
Great staff, straight shooters and trustworthy! From my first meeting with Nancy who made me feel at ease, to Michael Becker's knowledge and experience all the way through court with Michael Castillo, I felt I was in the best hands Vegas has to offer!
- Devon, a Domestic Violence client
My experience has been very good so far and I was very pleased with the outcome of the case. I have already recommended the firm to others.
- Greg, a DUI client
I am forever in debt with gratitude with my Lawyer and the Criminal Defense Group because they helped during the time when I almost gave up hope but everything happens for a reason and my case turned out just the way he told me the first day I talk to my Lawyer. I just wish that all the people that will and had made some bad decisions in their life will be able to find the means to hire/use the services of Michael Becker or the Group where he belongs. God bless you sir and keep doing what your doing and I will see you again when I will have my case sealed.
