Nevada "OxyContin" Laws
Explained by Las Vegas Criminal Defense Lawyers

Unlawful possession or sale of OxyContin is punished just as harshly as that of cocaine. Penalties include time in Nevada State Prison and fines. And having a criminal record may keep you from getting a job.

Our Las Vegas criminal defense lawyers are very successful in winning drug cases. Typical results include reduced misdemeanor charges or even full dismissals.

Our first step is to try to plea bargain a favorable resolution. But if necessary to protect your rights we will fight for a "not guilty" verdict at trial.
