Felonies Henderson, Nevada
A conviction for a felony can be a life-altering thing. Luckily, with the right lawyer, people can be insulated from the effects that may occur if they are threatened by a felony. Many felonies are punished by time in state prison while some only carry formal probation. The varieties of crimes that can be classified as a felony are surprising to many people, and they include the following:
- White Collar crimes like bribery, forgeries, fraud, lying under oath, embezzling, computer crimes
- Having, making, or selling drugs in addition to possessing drugs with intent to sell them
- Sexual crimes including abuse, assault, possessing pornography
- Violent crimes like murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, arson
- Fourth DUI offense in a ten year period
As a felony attorney, we help our clients to see whether or not there were mitigating factors in the crime such as if the defendant was involved in the crime. We will also try to determine whether or not the accused person used a weapon while committing the crime. Our firm will do everything in our power to help our clients get through these difficult cases. Our goal is to get our clients to the place that they started. We do not want our clients to be adversely affected by having a felony on their record, and we work hard to avoid that.
