Hiring a Las Vegas criminal attorney is one of the first and most important steps to take if you are under investigation for a crime, have recently been arrested, or are currently being prosecuted for criminal charges of any kind in Clark County. Even though you have the option to either accept a plea bargain or to work with a Public Defender, involving a private criminal defense lawyer in Las Vegas will likely be your best option.
Arrests, Investigations and Charges
If you would like to get more information about how hiring a criminal defense lawyer may affect your specific case, we recommend that you contact De Castroverde Law Group as soon as possible. During our first meeting, we can answer your questions about your charges and can inform you of what we can do to help.

Any case that does not get dismissed or resolved through a plea bargain will go to trial, and this requires additional motions and hearings. It is possible to seek a plea bargain up until the verdict is delivered, and everyone who is accused of a crime in Nevada is entitled to a bench trial. Jury trials will only be available for defendants who are facing a penalty of more than six months in jail, such as in a murder case or kidnapping case.
If a judge finds you guilty of a crime at trial, you will receive a sentence hearing where penalties will be issued. A defendant may have the possibility of parole and probation, and other penalties can include incarceration, fines, rehab programs and more. Felony offenses in Nevada carry a prison term of one year to a life sentence, and certain crimes qualify for the death penalty.
