Criminal Defense
Las Vegas Defense Group represents clients facing misdemeanor, felony, DUI or juvenile charges throughout Nevada. Whether you are a local resident or a tourist, our experienced team of criminal defense attorneys can help.
Getting arrested for a Las Vegas criminal charge does not mean you will definitely be convicted. You are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. To be convicted, the District Attorney must prove you guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. We want to prevent that from happening.

Las Vegas Defense Group uses negotiation and litigation to try to get your charges reduced or dismissed with minimal or no penalties. Our team of attorneys are familiar with the judges, prosecutors, the Las Vegas police and the local criminal courts process. A thorough knowledge of the system, coupled with an in-depth analysis of your case, may lead to a winning defense strategy.
Many people plead guilty to Las Vegas DUI charges despite highly questionable state evidence. Therefore it is advisable to retain private counsel to evaluate your case's merits before taking a deal. Las Vegas Defense Group is here to help.
Nevada DUI prosecutors typically rely on four types of evidence when trying to prove that a defendant committed drunk driving:

(1) the defendant was not driving in a sober manner,

(2) the defendant smelled, spoke, walked and acted like an inebriated person,

(3) the defendant could not perform the field sobriety test well, and

(4) the defendant's DUI breath test or blood test registered a blood alcohol level of .08 or above.

Depending on the case, our Las Vegas criminal defense attorneys may be able to demonstrate that the state's evidence is too insufficient, inaccurate, or unreliable to sustain a guilty verdict...

Perhaps the cops did not have good cause to pull over the driver, or perhaps the cops did not give proper instructions when administering the field sobriety tests, or perhaps there were problems with the blood- and breath-testing equipment. If there are any holes in the state's evidence, Las Vegas Defense Group will leverage them to try to get the Nevada DUI charges reduced or dismissed.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

The attorneys at Las Vegas Defense Group have varied legal backgrounds in criminal, immigration, personal injury and family law: Attorney Neil Shouse is a former prosecutor; Attorney Daniel Page is a former public defender; and Attorney Michael Becker has more than twenty years of criminal defense experience and has tried more than ninety jury trials. So each of our clients benefits from the collective experience and knowledge of all of our attorneys.
