Criminal defense begins with a good attorney.  State and federal laws do not always agree, and many laws are subject to periodic changes.  A great criminal defense attorney knows how to keep up with the times.  The attorneys at Potter Law Firm continuously maintain the most current body of information on criminal law in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Being charged with a crime is stressful, but you don’t have to go through it without representation.  The charges brought against you might range from a minor violation to a felony.  Each charge carries a different level of severity, and each charge can potentially impact your criminal record to a different degree.

It is critical to use all of the protections provided to you within the legal code in order to maintain your rights throughout the process.  The skilled professionals at Potter Law Firm are dedicated to providing you with the best criminal defense, regardless of the circumstances surrounding your arrest.

In criminal defense law, you are not required to prove that you are innocent of committing a crime.  It is the job of the prosecution to prove that a crime was committed beyond a reasonable doubt.  When you know your rights, you are less likely to provide information that can be used against you in court.  The best way to ensure that your defense is as strong as possible is to contact Potter Law Firm as quickly as possible after your arrest.

An effective criminal defense consists of a skillful analysis of every detail of the arrest and extenuating circumstances that surround the incident. In addition, the track record of your attorney can have a tremendous impact on the outcome of your case.

For example, an experienced Potter Criminal Defense attorney will know how to:

  • Effectively gather relevant information about your case.
  • Advise you of your rights and prevent them from being violated.
  • Ensure that the legal outcome maximizes your interests.
