John Wright is a criminal defense attorney who seeks out the toughest criminal defense cases, accepting it as a personal challenge to turn cases around even when they seem to have foregone conclusions. Throughout his career practicing law in Hawaii and Nevada, many of his clients have seen their future changed from prison time to freedom as their cases have been dismissed. These results are caused by John’s bulldog determination to fight for every square inch of ground for every client. From complicated white collar crimes to misdemeanors and simple traffic violations, John gives every individual’s case his best shot, and more often than not, that is enough for an unbelievable result.
John’s intimate knowledge and use of the rules of procedure and evidence gives him the resources to use a prosecution’s case against itself. His effectiveness at discouraging prosecutors and challenging every shred of evidence often causes charges to be dropped or reduced even when the case is relatively strong. Oppressive paperwork, technicalities, and arcane legal doctrines are just some of the weapons that John uses to tie the hands of prosecutors and defend his clients from being run over. If you are afraid that your situation has left you no options but a guilty plea, don’t make a decision before consulting with John. You are likely to find that his representation can win you your future back.
The detail oriented approach of John’s legal work makes him an ideal attorney for complex “paper” cases such as fraud and embezzlement. Proving these charges requires incredible amounts of paperwork and evidence, and too often public defenders and discount lawyers don’t have the experience, knowledge of procedure or time to make sure that those tough requirements are adhered to. John doesn’t allow anything to slip by, and he will expose any false evidence, question any assumption, and successfully keep a case out of the courtroom on the basis of an obscure technicality. In fact, many Las Vegas prosecutors have learned from experience that their job will be very difficult when they face John Wright’s level of defense. Just having him take your case will make the prosecution think twice about whether it will even be worth it to pursue a conviction.
John Wright obtained his law degree from West Virginia University, College of Law and his Bachelors in Political Science from the University of Hawaii. John has been licensed to practice law since 1991, having passed the Hawaii bar at the age of 24. He became licensed to practice law in Nevada in 1996 and has handled no less than 50 appeals before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the Hawaii and Nevada Supreme Courts combined.
Jason Weiner is licensed to practice law in Louisiana, Arizona, and Nevada, and has over a decade of experience working within the Las Vegas area’s unique legal environment. During this time, he has developed important experience with the prosecutors and Judges that are likely to be involved in trying the cases of his clients. Knowing the local system and how things actually work, as opposed to how the books say they should, gives Jason many practical advantages as he fights to win his clients the justice they deserve. Supporting his thorough knowledge of local procedures are degrees from the University of Utah, the Mississippi College School of Law, and through the université D’Aix-en-Provence in southern France. Jason gained his early practical experience as a public defender for Mohave County, Arizona and abroad as a clerk for attorneys in Marseille, France.
Jason’s law career is driven by a desire to see every client receive the fair treatment that he or she is promised as a U.S. citizen. He is committed to giving each individual’s case the careful, detailed attention that it deserves, whether the charge is murder, drug possession, or anything in between. You won’t receive this high quality attention from a public defender or discount lawyer, and you certainly won’t see the acquittals, dismissals, and reduced sentences that are the results of Jason’s energy and hard work.
When you ask Jason what drives his life as a criminal defense lawyer, his answer is simple: he likes winning. During his years practicing law, Jason has often been frustrated at the sight of accused individuals being wronged by manufactured evidence, vindictive police officers, and other miscarriages of justice, and he comes to work every day determined to right those types of wrongs. Given the high level of experience and the valuable personal contacts that he brings to your defense, that attitude should inspire confidence that Jason will fight every step of the way to win you an even better conclusion to your case than you thought was possible.
Jason specializes in criminal law, preferring to work in the courtroom. His areas of particular expertise are DUI and drug charges, domestic violence, and sexual assault cases. A father of two, he also has the unique understanding and perspective on juvenile issues that only a parent can bring. In addition, Jason’s extensive experience working in a tourist destination state prepares him for the unusual challenges of defending the case of an out-of-state defendant who is not able to be present at the trial. Often, through the use of video chat and other communication technologies combined with the confidence that their cases are safe in his hands, defendants can have their legal trouble resolved without even returning to Nevada.
