Cal Potter understands the importance of homicide cases. As one of the leading defense attorneys in Las Vegas, he helped multiple clients prove their innocence in a courtroom. Nevada is one of many states that currently has a death penalty, and dozens of people now sit on death row in prisons located around the state.
Homicide charges can include:
*1st degree murder
The court can also issue a charge of vehicular manslaughter, voluntary manslaughter, 2nd degree murder or third degree murder. Unless you have experience in the legal world, you might not understand the differences between each charge. Depending on the charge, you might face several years in prison or even the death penalty.
When someone you care about faces a homicide charge, you need to act fast. These cases can drag on for years, but the more help you have by your side, the faster you can take care of things. Schedule an appointment with us to talk about your charge or the homicide charges a loved one faces.
The sooner that you call us, the sooner we can get to work on your case. Depending on what happened and the charge that you face, we might decide that a plea bargain is your best choice. For example, if the court charges you with a count of felony rape, we might plead that down to one count of misdemeanor sexual imposition.
Pleading down to a lesser charge is a good option when you find that the prosecutor has overwhelming evidence against you. While a misdemeanor will remain on your record, it won’t affect you in the same way that a felony charge would.
We often look at similar cases at the local, state and national level. This helps us find evidence that we can use to request that the court drop or reduce the charges. We will also look at the sentences given to those facing similar charges to help reduce the sentence that you face.
Going through a felony court case is a difficult thing, but we can take some of the stress off your shoulders. Call us to schedule your free felony charge evaluation today.

The penalties for DUI go up with each subsequent offense. For example, those who have had three or more DUIs can be subject to up to six years in prison. Having a DUI arrest on one’s record can make it difficult to obtain employment, and might even make insurance unaffordable.
Many people fail to hire an attorney when charged with a DUI because they think a conviction is automatic. That’s not necessarily the case, so individuals who have been arrested for a DUI should call the Potter Law Firm at 702-385-1954.
