DRUG POSSESSION ATTORNEY IN HENDERSON NEVADA

Attorneys BRIAN VASEK and MARYAM VASEK frequently assist drug possession clients in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson, Nevada. VASEK LAW also serves drug possession clients in Mesquite, Laughlin, and Boulder City. When consulting with new clients about drug possession, some of the most frequent questions that Attorneys Brian and Maryam receive include the following:

  • What if this is my first offense?
  • How does the weight of the drugs affect the case?
  • What if the drugs belonged to someone else?
  • What if I was stopped illegally?
  • Isn't marijuana legal in Nevada?
  • How will this affect my job?

VASEK LAW can answer these questions and many more. Attorneys Brian and Maryam have helped countless drug possession clients in Southern Nevada. However, not every drug possession case is the same and the outcome of the case may depend upon many factors, such as where the case was filed, what judge is handling the case, what prosecuting attorney is handling the case, a person's prior criminal history, and possible defenses. A conviction for drug possession may result in consequences for some jobs, such as the revocation of some professional licenses. A conviction may also result in deportation or removal if the person is not a United States citizen. It is important to hire an experienced, knowledgeable criminal defense attorney to navigate these consequences and find weaknesses in prosecuting attorney's case. An attorney may also discover witnesses or evidence that the police missed. Speak with Attorneys Brian and Maryam to discuss your options and before taking further action.
