Domestic Violence

A domestic violence conviction carries significant penalties and life-long consequences including up to six months in jail $1,000 fine and a loss of your rights under the Second Amendment. Under both Nevada and Federal law, a domestic violence conviction results in an immediate lifetime ban on the purchase and possession of firearms.

Our firm has successfully defended many domestic violence cases, often obtaining dismissals, acquittals, and reductions in charges.

Recently, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled that individuals accused of domestic violence have a right to a jury trial. Previously in Nevada, individuals accused of domestic violence did not have the right to have their fate decided by a jury of their peers and could only have their case decided by a justice of the peace.

A large majority of criminal cases are resolved with a plea deal prior to trial. Aside from the strength of the prosecution’s case, one of the biggest factors influencing how favorable of a deal you are offered is your attorney’s skill and willingness to fight for you in front of a jury at trial.

Our firm has successfully defended over twenty criminal jury trials in recent years. We do not place your case and your future in the hands of a junior associate. Rather, you will have a skilled and experienced trial attorney on your side from the beginning to the end of your case. We take great pride in our reputation and results inside the courtroom and we want you to feel an unparalleled level of comfort during this stressful time.

If you or a loved one have been accused of domestic violence call our office at 702-382-1170 for a free consultation with an experienced domestic violence attorney so we can discuss how to best defend the allegations.

Our firm aggressively defends all traffic tickets and we are 100% committed to doing all we can to reduce your ticket down to a non-moving, illegal parking violation with no points added to your record.

Reducing your traffic ticket to an illegal parking citation has significant benefits. First, it will keep points off your driver’s license. Over a lifetime, a clean driving record will save you thousands of dollars in insurance fees. Also, it is always helpful to have a clean driving record when you are undergoing a background search or applying for a new job.

In Nevada, demerit points stay on your driving record for 12 months after the date of your conviction or guilty plea. Further, if you receive 12 or more demerit points during a one-year period, the Nevada DMV will revoke your drivers license for a period of 6 months.

Our firm successfully defends traffic tickets in numerous locations and courts including: Las Vegas, Clark County, Las Vegas Justice Court, Las Vegas Municipal Court, Henderson Justice Court, Henderson Municipal Court, North Las Vegas Justice Court, and North Las Vegas Municipal Court.

If you have received a traffic ticket, please contact our office at 702-382-1170 for a free consultation on how we can attempt to reduce your ticket to a no-points illegal parking violation and save you thousands on insurance premiums.

Warrants

A warrant gives a police officer the ability to immediately arrest you. We have successfully resolved hundreds of warrants without our clients being arrested.

A bench warrant and an arrest warrant are the two most common warrants for which you can be arrested. A bench warrant will be issued by a judge when an individual misses a mandatory court date.

Unlike a bench warrant, an arrest warrant is issued before there have been any court dates. An arrest warrant is often the first action taken by the police investigating an alleged crime. An arrest warrant will be issued by a judge at the request of a prosecutor who can provide evidence to show that the individual named in the warrant has allegedly committed a crime.

If you believe that there is a warrant out for you arrest, do not let fear and anxiety overcome you. Call us at 702-382-1170 to speak with an experienced attorney and learn how we can attempt to quash the warrant well before there is an arrest.

Weapons Offenses

Nevada takes crimes involving guns/firearms and weapons very seriously. A conviction for a felony weapons case could result in years in prison, expensive fines and possible deportation if you are not a citizen. Further, if you are convicted of a felony, you would no longer be able to legally possess a gun/firearm under both Nevada and Federal law.

Our firm has successfully defended many weapons offenses, often obtaining dismissals, acquittals, and reductions in charges.

Unlike other states, Nevada does not require a permit to purchase or possess a firearm. However, a special permit is required to carry a concealed weapon. Nevada law NRS 202.350 defines a concealed weapon as any weapon which is “carried upon a person in such a manner as to not be discernable by ordinary observation.”

There are many defenses to weapons crimes. If you or a loved one have been accused of a weapons crime, call us at 702-382-1170 to have a free consultation with an experienced attorney who can discuss how to successfully defend the case.

Theft Offenses

Nevada has numerous laws in place to prosecute theft offenses.

These offenses range from grand larceny, petit larceny, embezzlement, forgery, theft, obtaining money under false pretenses, and various credit card offenses.

Many of these offenses are prosecuted and punished as felonies which carry stiff penalties including prison time and large fines.

Our firm has successfully defended many theft related offenses, often obtaining dismissals, acquittals, and reductions in charges.

Casino Markers

The Las Vegas casinos will aggressively pursue felony criminal charges for unpaid casino markers. Nevada has several unique laws to prosecute unpaid casino marker cases including, NRS 616D.300, NRS 205.090, NRS 205.380 and NRS 205.130

NRS 205.130 specifically deals with unpaid casino markers and makes it a felony offense to pass a bad check / receive a casino marker when a person knows that they do not have sufficient funds in their account to cover the marker.

While these unpaid debts could be successfully resolved in a civil arena or directly with the casino, a criminal conviction for felony fraud/theft can carry a prison sentence of one to four years in a Nevada prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

Our firm successfully defends tourists from around the world and local Clark County residents. If you live outside the Las Vegas area, our firm can often represent you without you having to travel back to Las Vegas for your many court appearances.

If you have received a letter notifying you that the Clark County District Attorney’s Office is proceeding with criminal charges, you should immediately contact an experienced unpaid maker attorney.
