Felonies in Southern Highlands, Nevada
A felony conviction can be life-altering. Obtaining the help of a criminal defense attorney will help interrupt, or possibly change, potential legal actions brought against any individual charged with a felony. Many felonies are punished by demanding a convicted felon to serve time in state prison. Sometimes this can be avoided and formal probation is enforced instead.
A variety of crimes are considered to be felonies. These can include white collar crimes such as:
- Lying under oath
- Computer crimes
Other actions may include possession of illegal drugs and selling drugs. Sexual crimes can also be felonies. Abuse, assault, and possessing pornography are a few types of sexual crimes that could lead to a felony charge.
When there is truly some involvement in the crime, then the attorney will search for various mitigating factors to help lower the sentence, like being an accomplice instead of the main perpetrator or the absence of a deadly weapon. Our firm aims to keep the accused individuals criminal record clean.
The legal system can be tricky to navigate for those who have been accused of misdemeanors. Working with a knowledgeable defense attorney can help bring clarity and ease of mind to those facing accusations of a criminal nature. Misdemeanors are not as severe as other crimes, though they are still punishable by law. Having a good lawyer is worth its weight in gold in such matters. At The Law Office of Jess Marchese, we have the experience to defend your misdemeanor case successfully.
A wide range of clients have been represented by our firm in respect to misdemeanors. Everything from traffic violations to domestic violence has been handled by the criminal defense team at our law office. We fight to make sure that our clients’ fines are avoided, probation is dropped, and jail time is reduced or vacated all together.
Sexual assault cases tend to be very sensitive in nature. Any client involved in this type of case can take heart in knowing we will be using our years of experience defending these cases. Any lawyer dealing in this type of case knows both the law and human emotions are heavily involved. It is for this reason careful attention is paid to witness statements and jury selection. Our firm understands that confidentiality is highly regarded in sexual assault cases. Being involved with, or accused of, a sexual assault can be managed and survived with the help of a skilled defense attorney.
DUI / DWI
Sobriety tests are fairly common. If alcohol has been consumed, individuals in this situation can be faced with jail time, driver’s license revocation, probation, and heavy fines. DUI / DWI convictions are serious issues. Our firm will fight to get our clients the least severe punishment possible. State DUI / DWI laws are not black and white. This means people who are facing DUI / DWI charges have an increased chance at walking away with decreased punishments.
