Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney with a Focus on Defending Battery Domestic Violence Charges
Every year, many people in Las Vegas and Clark County find themselves accused of battery domestic violence or spousal abuse. The State of Nevada does not take family violence charges lightly whether they are charged as a misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or felony.
If you are convicted of a first offense of battery domestic violence, you face up to six months in jail, 120 hours of community service and a $1,000 fine. A conviction for a repeat offense triggers even more severe penalties. Any conviction can have serious adverse consequences on your life, including a serious negative impact on your career, a divorce, or child custody and visitation rights.
Pezzillo Robinson, P.C., understands how to build a strong defense against battery domestic violence, aggravated assault, and other domestic violence charges, as well as how to represent defendants in permanent restraining order hearings. We will fight to defend your rights and to protect your freedom.
If you have been charged with battery domestic violence or have been served with protection order, contact us online or call us at 702-233-4225 for a free consultation. Attorney George Robinson will evaluate your situation and discuss legal strategies that could be used in your defense.
A Strong and Effective Defense
A battery domestic violence charge involves complex issues in personal relationships and in criminal law. Even if the alleged victim later recants his or her story, the prosecutor may have a policy that requires them not to drop the charge. The State will often press on with criminal charges regardless of the feelings of the complainant.
In this situation where the stakes are high, you cannot afford to represent yourself - or to plead guilty without the advice of a lawyer. Pezzillo Robinson will work to build a strong and effective defense of your rights and freedom. We will thoroughly investigate all aspects of the events leading up to the arrest, and we will make your case forcefully in court. Our goal will be to obtain the best outcome possible while protecting your rights at all times.
Taking Control of Your Situation
Sometimes, it may be possible to negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain an outcome that defers or lessens the penalties. Our firm may be able to help you take control of your situation by helping you obtain services such as anger management, marriage counseling or substance abuse treatment.
The sooner you call, the better we will be able to represent you. Evidence and the memories of witnesses can begin to fade, so act now.
