The law regarding battery domestic violence in Nevada is very vague. In the end, it comes down to the determination of one judge. Having an attorney with experience in these cases - who knows how to shape the issues and put things in context - can mean the difference between success and failure.

Las Vegas Nevada Domestic Violence Lawyer

Clark County Battery Attorney

Each year in Nevada, thousands of people are arrested for the crime of battery domestic violence. The definition of battery is provided in Nevada Revised Statute NRS 200.481:

Battery means any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another.

What is not clear from the statute itself is what constitutes "unlawful" force. Many domestic violence charges are based on minor incidents and the determination of what is unlawful force ultimately is decided by the judge presiding in an individual case.

Because these cases often involve conflicting testimony, it is imperative for anyone charged with battery domestic violence to retain the service of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. A defense attorney can review the facts of a case, skillfully question witnesses on direct, and cross examination and present a vigorous defense at trial if necessary to protect the rights of the criminally accused.
