Las Vegas Violent Crimes Attorney

Experience Legal Defense for Violent Crime Cases

Violent crimes are a grave matter in Nevada. In 2013, the state ranked second overall in violent crime rates across the entire United States. In 2019, the FBI ranked the Las Vegas area under the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department as having the highest number of violent crimes in the state. 

Despite the negatives, the state maintains a severe stand against any violent crime that can be committed within its areas of jurisdiction. Violent crime is a broad term encompassing a range of criminal offenses involving the use of force or threat of force against another individual.

Given the gravity of these charges, anyone accused of a violent crime needs an experienced trial lawyer. Violent crimes often carry severe penalties, including lengthy prison sentences, hefty fines, and a lifetime of living with a criminal record. A skilled trial lawyer can help you navigate the complexities of the legal system, build a strong defense, and fight for the best possible outcome.

At Goodman Law Group, we understand the seriousness of violent crime charges and their impact on your life. Our firm is dedicated to providing our clients with robust legal representation and personalized service.

Violent Crimes in Nevada

Nevada Revised Statute 200.408b defines Crimes of Violence as (a) any offense that uses force and/or threats to obtain something from someone or (b) any felony with a substantial risk of using force against a person. 

Violent crimes can be committed as an independent act, like murder, or can be used to achieve another specific objective, like robbery. Violent crimes come in different forms, mainly because they can cover various related offenses. To make it easier to define what kind of violent crime a person committed, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has categorized violent crimes into the following classifications.

Aggravated Assault

Aggravated assault involves the unlawful infliction of injury upon another, with or without weapons, either simply with the intent to harm and injure or as part of another crime in progress, like rape or robbery. Penalties rely on factors relating to the crime itself, such as intent and range of injury inflicted. 

The typical punishment includes:

  • Time served in prison, the length of which is dependent on the severity of the crime and other factors like criminal history.
  • Probation, again dependent on the severity of the crime and other related factors.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
