Felony Defense Lawyer in Las Vegas

Consequences of a Felony Conviction

If you are facing a felony charge, it is vital you have an aggressive Las Vegas criminal defense attorney fighting on your behalf.  Penalties for felonies are usually very heavy and often involve lengthy prison sentences.  A felony conviction bears consequences beyond the specific penalties imposed for the particular crime involved.  Some of the possible effects of having a felony conviction on your record include:

  • Being barred from certain professions
  • Difficulty obtaining employment
  • Difficulty obtaining housing
  • Difficulty obtaining loans from financial institutions
  • Loss of the right to vote
  • Loss of the right to serve on a jury
  • Not being allowed to purchase or possess firearms or ammunition
  • Increased charges and penalties in certain future legal matters
  • Exclusion from certain travel permissions
  • Deportation if not a United States citizen

Defending Your Rights

At Okabe & Haushalter, we fight aggressively to defend your rights and freedoms.  Our goal is always to help you avoid conviction.  We will thoroughly investigate your case and seek to invalidate the prosecution's evidence or obtain evidence to be used in your favor.  The burden is on the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt and we will fight to have this standard upheld so that your defense bears as much weight as possible.  Where a conviction is involved, we may be able to negotiate on your behalf to achieve a reduction in charges.  Where this downgrades a felony charge to a misdemeanor charge, this makes a very positive difference to your future.  The status of convicted felon is permanent unless a successful appeal or pardon is achieved.  We may be able to assist with this or in some cases, the reinstatement of certain rights.

Contact a Las Vegas felony defense lawyer if you are facing felony charges and potentially the lifelong consequences of a felony conviction.
