What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?

A criminal defense attorney handles issues surrounding a criminal arrest, investigation, prosecution, sentencing, and issues that may arise after court proceedings. 
For example, a criminal defense attorney is necessary for DUI cases, drug crime charges and domestic violence matters. 
Another important role of a criminal defense attorney is to help clients before the prosecuting attorney files charges against them. 
This can occur if a client is arrested but no charges have been filed or if a client is being investigated. If you are in this situation, you do not need to wait to hire a criminal defense attorney until charges are filed. 
A criminal defense attorney will deal with the procedural issues of the crime(s)that are charged against you. 
He or she will help with representation, will deal with law enforcement agencies and/or other crime investigators, perform personal investigations and present evidence in your defense.

How much does hiring a criminal defense lawyer cost?

In Nevada, it is not always true that “if you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to you.” To qualify for a pro bono or free criminal defense attorney, you have to be determined to be “indigent” and it depends on the type of crime that you are charged with.
 
In Nevada, indigent means not having enough resources to hire private counsel.
 
To determine whether or not you qualify as indigent, the Court will first ask if you can afford an attorney. If your answer is no, the Court will ask you to complete a brief financial declaration. The judge will take into account your current financial circumstances after examining your financial assets and liabilities to determine whether or not you qualify for a free lawyer.
 
In addition to being indigent, the crimes you are charged with must qualify for the appointment of an attorney. If you are accused of a felony, a gross misdemeanor or a misdemeanor for which the prosecutor is seeking jail time, you should qualify for a pro bono criminal defense lawyer.
If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime and wants experienced, aggressive representation from a former prosecutor, call us today at (702) 433-2889 or fill out our on-line form for more information.
