LV Criminal Defense: Your Criminal Lawyers in Las Vegas, Nevada

Getting arrested and charged with a crime in Nevada can be confusing and stressful. When will you get out of jail? What type of penalties do you face? How will your loved ones react? What will happen to your job?

If you have been arrested in Las Vegas, it may be tempting to listen to what friends and family- or even law enforcement– have to say about what you should do and why. But every criminal case is different, and your freedom and criminal record should not be left to chance and guesswork. Instead, your best defense is having an experienced and qualified Las Vegas criminal defense attorney like Nick Wooldridge at your side every step of the way.

You need an attorney to turn the investigation around. The police and prosecutor are not on your side, and in fact, have an interest in getting the most convictions possible to seem “tough on crime.” You need someone to investigate whether the actions of the police in your case were legal and appropriate, to determine the weaknesses in the state’s case against you, and to learn what the witnesses will say and what evidence has been collected. Nick Wooldridge uses all of this information to begin building your defense from the moment you hire him. These are your rights, and Nick Wooldridge will make sure that everyone involved abides by them.

As you go through the Nevada criminal process, you need a strong, aggressive advocate to defend you from over-reaching by law enforcement and the prosecutor. Don’t leave your case to chance, the guesswork of friends or family, assumptions based on what you have seen on television, or the seeming friendliness of law enforcement. Be sure that you have someone on your side, with all the facts, and a clear, accurate understanding of what the law really is in your case.

Make that person Nick Wooldridge by calling 702-623-6362 now.

LV Criminal Defense will ensure that the prosecutor is doing his or her job, and this can mean making requests to the court for more time, suppression of evidence (throwing out evidence that was collected in violation of your constitutional rights), and reduced penalties for certain mitigating facts in your case. These are legal arguments that affect which charges can stand against you.For example, a prostitution charge can be reduced to a simple trespass or domestic violence battery to a simple assault if the prosecutor does not have enough of the right type of evidence against you. Having an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side is the best way to ensure that you are offered the lowest possible charges.

A criminal record can follow you for quite some time into the future, which means that even with your best effort to get back on track, these charges may come back to haunt you.

Las Vegas plea bargaining

There are also opportunities to negotiate a sentence down once the charges have been determined. First time drug offenses can be dismissed altogether if you complete Drug Court, and often jail time can be suspended as long as you are not arrested again. These deals are not a guarantee, but having a strong defense lawyer working on your behalf is the best way to ensure you get a favorable plea deal in your Las Vegas criminal case.

What to do if you are arrested in Las Vegas

First and foremost, if you have been arrested, you do not have any obligation to speak to the police or answer questions until a lawyer is present. Do not be afraid to ask for a lawyer. The fact that you asked for an attorney cannot later be used against you because it is your constitutional right.

At the earliest opportunity, contact a criminal defense attorney in Las Vegas who is an experienced advocate for people accused of crimes. Convictions for even small crimes can impact your future. A criminal record of convictions can make it difficult to find housing and employment, to win a custody battle for your children, or to enjoy other rights like owning a gun.

What to do if you have been charged with a crime in Las Vegas while on vacation

Despite its reputation as a place where anything goes, visitors to Las Vegas are not immune from arrest and criminal charges.

If you were arrested while visiting Las Vegas, you still must answer to any charges against you. For some crimes, like DUI, Nevada will likely report the crime to your home state. Don’t ignore these charges- get a criminal defense lawyer who is experienced in handling cases for out-of-state visitors.

Sometimes things go wrong. Nick Wooldridge understands that and wants to help you. Your best defense starts early. If you have been arrested in Las Vegas and charged with a crime, contact LV Criminal Defense at 702-623-6362 as soon as possible for dedicated, experienced defense.
