Find Help for Homicide Charges in Las Vegas 

Las Vegas courts will only charge individuals with homicide if the court determines that enough evidence exists to prove the charge. Before the court charges you with homicide, the prosecutor will argue to the grand jury that he or she has enough evidence to push the case forward. Once the court charges you, you need to appear in the courtroom. Some defendants receive bail, which lets them go home until the trial starts, while others wait in jail until the trial.

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
*Involuntary manslaughter
*Attempted 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.

Facing Felony Charges? Call Potter Law Offices

A felony charge can reduce your chances of landing a new job, change the way that loved ones think and feel about you and even impact the way you live your life. Here at Potter Law Offices, we realize that every situation is different, which is why we offer a customized plan to fighting your felony charge. Felony charges can include:

*Aggravated assault
*Sexual crimes

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.
