If you’re in the midst of organizing a defense against criminal charges in Las Vegas, there is good news and bad news for you about the criminal law process. The good news is that police and prosecutors must follow very detailed guidelines to the letter in order to win a conviction. If they forget one detail or treat you incorrectly according to Nevada law, your criminal defense attorney can use that fact to get your case dismissed.
The bad news is that you must also follow detailed rules for nearly every step of the defense process. From posting bail following your arrest to getting your records sealed years afterward, there is paperwork and procedure that looks like a maze to most people. At Weiner Law Group, we don’t just stand up in the courtroom and tell the judge that he shouldn’t sentence you. We help you with every step of the process quickly and professionally so that there are no obstacles to your defense.
Dizzying Law Requirements
You’ll find that, no matter how hard it is to complete forms with precision and appear at every scheduled appointment while also tending to life’s other responsibilities, the court will not generally be flexible or understanding. Just making it to the hearings and trials with your paperwork in order is practically a full-time job, let alone trying to defend yourself coherently against the efforts of a skilled prosecutor. With a good criminal defense lawyer on your side, you don’t have to worry about any of that red tape.
The criminal law process is full of “one-time opportunities.” If you waste those opportunities by letting deadlines slip past or not even knowing that the opportunities are there, you will end up paying penalties for no reason at all. We know what lies ahead, how you should approach it, and what you can expect at the end of the day.
Use the Process
If your attorney knows how to use the criminal law process successfully, you can make the most of your rights under Nevada law and minimize the effect that an arrest has on your present and future life. Too many people miss the chance to put their legal trouble behind them for good simply because they did not have a good lawyer at their side to guide them safely through it.
