All About Restaining Orders

A restraining order in Las Vegas is a court action that an individual can petition for if he or she feels threatened by another individual. If the judge presiding over the action agrees, the order will go into effect immediately, and the court will use its authority to enforce it. There are many common misunderstandings about exactly what a restraining order means, how to obtain one, and how to oppose one that is being filed against you.

Home Invasion Crime

There are a number of crimes defined by the Nevada legal code that bear a very close resemblance to one another. Three of these are burglary, robbery, and home invasion. The prosecution’s decision about which crime to charge you with usually depends on a number of details about the alleged incident.

Know Your Rights

Do You Know What Your Rights Are?

Talking to the police without talking to an attorney first is a colossal mistake. Without the counsel of a legal expert on your side, you are no match for the tactics police officers can use to coax a self-incriminating statement out of you even after they have given you the Miranda warning.

Expunge Criminal Record

Simply put, an individual’s criminal record is the list of times that he or she has been arrested for some reason. Some people have no criminal record at all; others have a few arrests on their records for minor offenses like misdemeanor trespassing or reckless driving.
