Las Vegas Domestic Violence Lawyer- You Cannot Afford to Be Convicted of Domestic Violence
Aggressive, Experienced Defense Attorney for Clients Facing Domestic Battery Charges in Nevada
Following certain high-profile cases in the 1990's (Hello, O.J.) state legislatures across America came to realize that they could be held civilly liable if police fail to arrest a person accused of committing an act of domestic violence. Laws were changed to mandate arrest if police are able to determine the primary physical aggressor. Further, the laws were changed to reflect a growing intolerance of any unconsented physical contact between family members or domestic partners. Today, law enforcement agencies follow the rule of thumb to arrest first, and ask questions later.
In Las Vegas, where alcohol is given away freely, gambling losses can lead to arguments, and people run on little to no sleep while visiting, it is not uncommon for incidents between partners to occur. It is also not uncommon to be arrested and charged with domestic violence. But there are many defenses available to domestic violence charges.
