VASEK LAW frequently assists victims of crime in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson, Nevada. Attorney BRIAN VASEK also serves victims of crime in Mesquite, Laughlin, Searchlight, and Boulder City. When consulting with victims of crime, some of the most frequent questions that Brian receives include the following:
- How or where do I report a crime?
- How do I know if someone was arrested?
- How do I know if someone was released from jail?
- Am I entitled to restitution?
- How do I protect my identity?
- How do I get a protective order?
- What's the purpose of a subpoena?
- What is service or a promise to appear?
- Do I need to show up in court on the trial date?
- Do I have to cooperate with the prosecuting attorney?
As largely a CRIMINAL DEFENSE attorney and having appeared before all courts in Southern Nevada, Brian possesses the same knowledge and resources necessary to serve as an aggressive victim advocate. You may be unaware of your statutory and constitutional rights (i.e. Marsy's Law or the "Victim's Bill of Rights") or unsure of where or who to contact. Your "victim advocate" assigned by the prosecutor may not immediately answer your calls or emails or unable to answer more technical questions about a case. The criminal justice system can be difficult and confusing to navigate for victims. Brian knows how to effectively navigate that system, quickly locate the information you are seeking, and serve as a point of contact between you and the prosecuting attorney. If a criminal case is filed against someone, Brian can help you obtain a no contact order with the criminal court and even a protective order with the Family Division of the Eighth Judicial District Court. Brian can help you understand restitution and how to obtain compensation through the court for damage to your property.
If reading this and you were the victim of crime, you may feel lost, confused, scared, hopeless, or that your life is over. You are not alone and deserve an advocate that will provide the time, attention, and care necessary to help you understand your rights and options and help achieve the best result possible for you in court.
