Why Hire The Vegas Lawyers As Your Criminal Defense Attorneys?
The Vegas Lawyers is a full service criminal law firm that defends Las Vegas citizens against all felony, misdemeanor, juvenile and DUI types of charges.
Our attorneys have decades of experience defending clients against all types of criminal charges, and some have even held the position of Judge in Las Vegas.
We have successfully fought every type of criminal charge including solicitation for prostitution, drug charges, domestic violence and battery, casino markers (casino debt), DUI (whether it’s alcohol or drug related), as well as grand larceny.
We employ in-house private investigators, who will actively pursue every aspect of evidence gathering and situational analysis, to assist our attorneys in securing not guilty verdicts at trial, as well as case dismissals if we are short of trial. We can probably help you avoid jail time, and might be able to get your charges dismissed altogether or significantly reduced.
We are constantly asked what types of cases we defend, and what are our specialties. Some of the most common cases that we see in Las Vegas involve domestic violence, DUI, solicitation for prostitution and casino markers.
The domestic violence charges are probably the most common types of cases due to the fact that it is typical procedure for the police to make an arrest if they have been called for a domestic violence incident.
If you have been involved in an argument or altercation with your significant other, and someone called police in order to protect the safety of both parties, it is common for the police to make an arrest of one of the parties involved. In most cases the male subject is the one arrested, and unfortunately this common knowledge, and it is sometimes abused by the other party.
Many times a jealous spouse or significant other will use the threat of the domestic violence arrest as leverage in an argument. This leads to many innocent people being arrested every year on domestic violence charges in Las Vegas.
Many people do not even realize that simply making the call can or will result in an arrest. This means that once 911 is called by someone as a way to simply intimidate the other person, the police will most likely make an arrest of that person’s partner whether she or he wants them to or not. The Vegas Lawyers have successfully defended many domestic violence charges, and can help keep that DV charge off your record.
DUI is one of the most common arrests that is made in Las Vegas. This is due to the simple judgment issues that surround drinking alcohol or using marijuana.
People often make the mistake of believing that they are ok after drinking multiple alcoholic drinks, then they get into their car and drive off. Once they start driving, they get pulled over and arrested for DUI.
For these types of cases we will generally challenge the legality of the stop and challenge the testing procedures and results. In many cases we can get the charges completely dismissed or reduced. Keeping that DUI off your record is of critical importance to your future. We successfully defend DUI cases every day.
If you have been arrested for solicitation of a prostitute, of for prostitution itself, you are not alone. Every year there are hundreds of arrests in Las Vegas of people did not know that prostitution is illegal in Clark County.
It is very common for these people to be from out of town, and ultimately facing the confusion of what happens after being arrested while on vacation.
We have many years of experience defending these types of cases and keeping tourists out of jail. We can help you if you get into trouble while visiting Las Vegas.

What Happens When You Get A DUI?
The main question that most people ask when they hire a DUI lawyer is “can they put me in jail for a first time DUI?”
Even though the answer is “YES”, it is a rare case that you would be sentenced to serve more time than you already have in the state of Nevada. The law in Nevada states, that a person convicted of a first time DUI must serve a minimum of two days in jail, but the judges will usually consider the arrest and initial incarceration as two days credit toward the time served.
If you were bailed out before two days was served, the judge will usually order 48-96 hours of community service instead of the remaining jail time. You will also receive a suspended sentence of six months in jail if you commit another crime during your probation, but this can be avoided by following all the rules and doing everything that you are told to do.
If you receive another DUI within seven years of your first, you will probably receive a standard sentence of ten days to six months in jail, or residential confinement. Fines for second offenses are usually $1,100 in Las Vegas courts.
Don’t gamble with your future if you have been arrested for DUI in Las Vegas. The penalties that are imposed by the judge can be minimal or they can be harsh. This is going to be decided by how well your DUI lawyer knows the system, and how you have conducted yourself.
