How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Criminal charges have the power to forever alter someone's life. If they are mishandled, they can leave a person suffering the consequences for a very long time, if not forever. For this reason, we think it is incredibly important to give strong and experienced legal guidance to anyone who is in need of it. Our family-run firm has deep roots in the Las Vegas area, and we pride ourselves in providing the community with the proven, aggressive, and dependable representation needed to protect their rights and interests and effectively challenge the charges they face.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

We don't believe clients should ever be left in the dark and therefore encourage any and all attempts clients make at educating themselves. We understand, however, that the law is complex, which is why our attorneys are always available to answer our clients' questions, address their concerns, and keep them informed of the different aspects of their cases.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

If we feel the document will be beneficial to helping our attorneys get clients the results they desire, we are more than willing to review it. Our firm leaves no stone untured in preparing the most comprehensive defense possible for our clients' cases.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We are always open to sitting down and discussing all options with clients and our attorneys work together with each individual to determine how our team can best assist their defenses and protect their rights and interests.

Alex De Castroverde

I have previously worked to handle cases regarding some of the biggest names in Las Vegas, from the Venetian Hotel and Casino to the New York, New York Hotel and Casino, to the Regional Justice Center. By working with such large entities, I have been given a thorough and hands on experience that has proven invaluable in my efforts to defend my clients.

My experience handling large name clients has enabled me to handle any type of case with a cool head. I can make the tough decisions and can work with the same level of skill no matter how much pressure or attention is focused on the case.

I am aggressive and creative when it comes to dealing with cases. I believe that the details are the most important and therefore work to create defenses that are tailor-made for each individual case instead of generalized solutions that don't do as well of a job.
