Las Vegas Domestic Violence Attorney

Domestic Violence Overview

Domestic violence, under Nevada law, is defined as specific acts of violence against a family member, spouse, ex-spouse, cohabitant, parent of a shared child, or person you are in a relationship with. These acts may include:

  • Battery
  • Assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Trespassing
  • Arson
  • Larceny
  • False imprisonment

Domestic violence may also include acts of sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical abuse, and child abuse. Battery is generally defined as “unlawful touching” and this is one form of domestic violence. Along with alleged instances of emotional abuse, this means that a person may face domestic violence accusations or even criminal charges in Nevada even when no actual physical injury has been sustained by the victim.

Defense Lawyer for Domestic Violence Charges in Clark County

The prosecution may still press charges in a domestic violence case even when the victim does not want to do so. Once the police become involved and an arrest is made, the prosecuting attorney may only lessen or dismiss domestic violence charges if they cannot prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

As I have found in my years of practice as a Las Vegas domestic violence defense attorney, victims often do not want to press charges. In fact, they are often helpful to the defense. However, domestic violence charges can still put a big strain on your relationship and therefore it is important to be aware of this. As your lawyer, I can help with the emotional stress and trauma associated with a domestic violence case.

False Accusations and Domestic Violence

False accusations are also the basis for some domestic violence and child abuse charges. The terrible thing about false accusations is that it not only hurts the person accused of a crime that he or she did not commit – it also hurts real victims of violence and abuse because it threatens their credibility. I understand how to address situations involving false allegations of domestic violence and can effectively defend my clients in these cases to help them avoid a conviction for a serious offense that they are not guilty of.
