It’s not okay with us just to take the police’s word for it. The police may not have an accurate recollection of events. In some cases, they’re inexperienced and make errors. They may even not be entirely truthful in their reporting of events.

That’s why we conduct our own investigation of events for every client. We can reach out to witnesses to ask the questions that the police didn’t ask. We have the experience to evaluate the investigation that was done in your case to identify law enforcement errors. Our team even has a network of qualified experts that can help explain technical information to the jury.

How Can a Criminal Defense Attorney Help?

If you have been accused of a crime and arrested, it can be easy to feel like your situation is helpless. Fortunately, there are many things that a defense lawyer can do to help. The exact actions your attorney will take will depend on your specific situation, but some of the more common things that defense lawyers do include:

Evaluate the circumstances of your arrest and determine whether the police violated your rights. If they did, it may be possible to have the evidence they gathered against you suppressed and your case dismissed.

Advise you regarding your legal options. These may include pleading guilty and accepting a plea bargain, attempting to get into a diversionary program, or taking your case to trial. The best option for you will depend on a number of factors, including your risk tolerance, the strength of the case against you, and the potential penalties you are facing.

Negotiate a favorable plea bargain with the prosecutor handling your case, if you choose to pursue one. In some cases, a plea bargain can result in a favorable outcome that avoids jail time or even a conviction.

Represent you in court. Going to court can be a nerve-wracking experience. The criminal justice system is complicated, and even attending a preliminary hearing can be confusing, and conducting a criminal trial is extremely complex. Fortunately, when you retain an attorney, they will represent you in court. In fact, in some cases, you may not even need to appear for certain matters.

When Should I Retain a Criminal Defense Attorney?

You should call a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can after an arrest. In fact, if you believe you are under investigation for a crime, you should contact an attorney even before you are arrested. In some cases, the representation of an experienced defense lawyer may be able to even prevent charges from being filed in the first place.

How Can a Criminal Conviction Affect My Life?

A conviction can affect your life in myriad ways – even if you are convicted of a misdemeanor offense. While most people focus on the direct consequences of a conviction like jail time and fines, it’s important to keep in mind that any criminal record can have significant collateral consequences that can affect your life for years to come. If there is a conviction on your record, you may have trouble renting an apartment, getting or keeping a job, getting into college or university, or obtaining a professional license.

Can I Represent Myself in Court?

There is no rule or law that prevents people who are accused of crimes from representing themselves. The criminal justice system is extremely complicated, and most defendants that represent themselves may be at a significant disadvantage. With so much on the line, the best course of action if you are accused of a crime is to retain a Las Vegas criminal defense attorney as soon as you can.

What Are Some Possible Defenses in a Nevada Criminal Case?

If you’re charged with a crime in Nevada, don’t assume that all hope is lost. There may be defenses available to you that you hadn’t considered. When our Las Vegas criminal lawyers represent you, there are a number of ways that we attack the charges against you:

Constitutional violations – Law enforcement might stop your vehicle or search you without a lawful right to do so. If they violate your rights, the court may throw out evidence before you even get to trial. Mistake or accident – Some crimes require you to intend to commit the crime specifically. For example, you’re not guilty of stealing if someone told you that you could have the items. A mistake can be a defense to a crime.

Mistaken identity – The police might accuse you of a crime when it was another person. We can help you show the police and the jury the truth.

Self-defense – It may be legally permissible to commit a crime if you’re acting in self-defense. We can help you present the facts that prove self-defense.

Necessity – In some cases, a person accused of a crime might have a justified reason that they act in a certain way. We can help you determine whether your actions are legally justified under Nevada law.

Your actions aren’t a crime – Sometimes, the police make mistakes. They might believe that you’re guilty of a crime when your actions don’t amount to a crime at all. We can help you present the evidence so that the court and the jury see that you didn’t commit a crime.

Is it Up to the Police to Prove Their Case?

When you’re facing criminal charges in Las Vegas, the state must prove the case against you. You have constitutional rights, and you don’t have to prove your innocence. We can help you evaluate evidence to ensure that the police gathered it lawfully. We can assess whether the police violated your constitutional rights or failed to follow protocol when they conducted their investigation.

The burden of proof on the state is high in a criminal case. They must prove that you’re guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Juries typically hold the state to a high level of proof. We examine every aspect to identify where there may be doubt in the case against you. Then, we prepare to challenge the state’s evidence and present your side of the case to the jury.
