Areas of Criminal Defense

The De Castroverde team of criminal defense lawyers specializes in many criminal law practice areas, including:

  • Drug offenses: A minor conviction of possession of a controlled substance can have a long-lasting impact on your record. Drug offenses include drug transport and trafficking, possession, and manufacturing.
  • Driving under the influence: Drunk driving is serious everywhere, but charges in Las Vegas could be enhanced based on your blood alcohol level, recklessness, previous record, and whether you were in an accident. Consequences include jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, and even license suspension.
  • Disorderly conduct: Las Vegas is known for its nightlife, but letting loose can still result in disorderly conduct or related charges, such as disturbing the peace, threatening or harassing someone, or using profane language.
  • Domestic violence: These charges stem from confrontations between family members, people in romantic relationships, spouses, or ex-spouses.
  • Casino arrest or casino marker cases: This includes passing bad checks, fraud, marker defaults, and general criminal charges.
  • Prostitution and solicitation: Contrary to popular belief, these are crimes to be charged in Clark County.
  • Professional licensing and disciplinary procedures: These may go along with criminal charges.

De Castroverde Law Group’s attorneys have experience with various general criminal offenses, such as theft, assault, battery, murder, kidnapping, and arson. If the police contact or arrest you, don’t speak to them without consulting with one of our experienced lawyers. We’ll assess the case against you and map a strategy for your best defense.
