What you need to know about violent crime charges in Nevada

Violent crimes, also known in Nevada as “crimes against the person.” They carry the most severe penalties for people convicted.

These crimes include but are not limited to:

There are a lot of ways to plan a proper defense to these accusations and the consequences of a conviction or even an arrest for a violent crime can be life-changing for the accused. Yet, there are many reasons a wrongful arrest and conviction may occur. They include but are certainly not limited to:

Our firm believes any charge alleging a crime of violence must be fought vigorously and the prosecutors have the burden of establishing guilt beyond a reasonable doubt before they can win a conviction. We make sure they never find it an easy task.

We will thoroughly and tirelessly investigate your case with the objective of countering and refuting allegations and evidence against you. We will work to:

  • Find flaws and/or contradictions in the prosecution’s case
  • Identify witnesses who can testify in your favor
  • Cross-examine the prosecution’s witnesses
  • Consult with experts who can test the validity of the prosecution’s evidence
  • Our criminal defense team will make sure you understand what to expect from the legal process, and we will respond promptly to your questions and concerns. It is crucial to us, as well as to your defense, that you know you have someone on your side you can completely trust.
