For over a decade, De Castroverde has been helping residents of Nevada by defending their rights in court. Our criminal defense lawyers, Frank Coumou and Craig Hendricks, each spent 25+ years working as Prosecutors at the Clark County District Attorney’s Office before joining the De Castroverde team. Craig Hendricks was the Chief of the Special Victims Unit. Frank Coumou worked as the Chief of the Homicide Unit and went on to become a US Attorney. Now working with us, they have insider knowledge and are known as our Vegas Dream Team. They use their prestigious expertise to defend and assist our clients through every step of their criminal proceedings.

Meanwhile, our immigration law team has multiple award-winning attorneys, including Juan De Pedro and Kyle Morishita.

Being charged with a criminal offense is scary, but our team of criminal attorneys and support staff have the knowledge and skills necessary to protect your rights. Our lawyers have experience as criminal defense attorneys, prosecutors, as well as in law enforcement as Chief of the Special Victims Unit and Homicide Unit. We know what happens on the other side and can better prepare our defense thanks to this background.

Having a criminal charge on your record can have long-lasting negative effects. We will do everything in our power to make sure that your reputation, relationships, and job can stay intact. De Castroverde specializes in various areas of criminal defense and will use that expertise to defend you.

Areas of Criminal Defense

The De Castroverde team of criminal defense attorneys specialize 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 range from drug transport and trafficking to possession and manufacturing.
  • DUI/DWI. Factors that affect DUI charges in Las Vegas include whether or not you were involved in an accident, your blood alcohol level, whether you were driving recklessly, and your previous record. Consequences vary but can include jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, and even license suspension.
  • Disorderly conduct. While Las Vegas is known for its nightlife and somewhere you can let loose, you can still be charged with disorderly conduct. These offenses include disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, or breach of peace. Examples of these charges involve threatening someone, harassing or disturbing others, displaying drunken behavior, or using profane language.

Just because you’re being charged with a crime doesn’t mean you have to accept it. You can fight it, and it’ll be easier to succeed with an expert attorney on your side. Don’t wait to contact an attorney, such as the team of skilled lawyers at De Castroverde  Criminal & Immigration Lawyers, to get the help you need.
