Adras & Altig, Attorneys at Law Offering $1,500 Off Misdemeanor Case Legal Fees
Many people in Nevada’s tourist industry are suddenly out of work and facing financial stress since the Nevada governor ordered the closure of hotels, casinos and non-essential businesses in Las Vegas for 30 days to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Las Vegas Strip is dark for the first time in more than 50 years.
The Las Vegas criminal defense attorneys at Adras & Altig are sensitive to the fact that many people are experiencing financial hardship during these uncertain times. Some people who are facing financial hardship also are facing criminal charges and need a lawyer’s help.
Adras & Altig has decided to reduce the standard legal fee that the law firm charges to handle misdemeanor charges through the end of April. The coronavirus is a serious public health threat and is affecting all of us. The fee reduction is an acknowledgment of the financial hardship that many people in Las Vegas and Clark County are facing.
We are offering $1,500 off of our normal fees to represent clients facing a Las Vegas misdemeanor charge. During this stressful time, we will handle a misdemeanor charge for a flat fee of $1,000 rather than the normal fee of $2,500, a significant discount. You should not have to worry about criminal defense costs and how to afford a lawyer with so much else weighing on you.
In keeping with the public health directives to minimize public interaction, we are offering free initial consultations by phone or video chat to protect our clients and our staff from exposure to the coronavirus. We want to do everything within our power to help those in need and to contain the virus.
Discounted Legal Fees for Handling Misdemeanor Charges
Common types of misdemeanors in Nevada that our attorneys handle include:
- Traffic tickets
- Drunk driving
- Petty larceny
- Solicitation of prostitution
- Breach of peace
- Simple battery
- Violation of a restraining order
We are committed to helping those who need the services of a criminal defense lawyer to resolve a misdemeanor charge. We totally understand that there are two sides to every criminal charge. Police rarely have all the facts when they make an arrest. You need a hardnosed criminal defense attorney to make sure your side of the story is heard. For a limited amount of time, that’s why our criminal defense lawyers at Adras & Altig are handling misdemeanor cases for a reduced fee.
Why Should You Hire an Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer for a Misdemeanor Charge?
The experience and determination of the misdemeanor lawyer that you select can make all the difference in the outcome of your Las Vegas misdemeanor case. You want a knowledgeable criminal lawyer who will stand up for you and challenge inaccurate claims by the prosecutors and police.
Las Vegas Attorneys Paul J. Adras and Steven Altig work as a team and have more than 30 years of combined experience representing clients facing criminal charges.
If money is tight, you may wonder if you can get the court to appoint a public defender to represent you. A public defender may be an option if you are poor and have few assets.
But public defenders have heavy caseloads. If a public defender does represent you, he or she will have a very limited amount of time to devote to investigating and preparing your defense.
The state of Nevada expects you to retain an attorney if you can afford to do so.
A criminal defense attorney in private practice has a smaller caseload and can devote more time to each case.
The criminal attorneys at Adras & Altig devote the time needed to develop a solid defense strategy and seek the best outcome for you.
Possible Penalties for Conviction of a Misdemeanor
The possible penalties for conviction of a misdemeanor in Nevada are:
- Fines of up to $1,000
- Up to six months of misdemeanor jail time in Nevada.
While the penalties for misdemeanor convictions are typically less severe than felony convictions, they still can affect your life and liberty.
No matter how minor the offense seems, a misdemeanor conviction will remain on your record and have a negative impact on your life. A misdemeanor conviction can make it more difficult to obtain employment, secure credit or qualify for a bank loan. Any criminal conviction can also lead to increased penalties if you are convicted of a subsequent offense.
For all those reasons, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to defend your rights and seek the best outcome for you. Our criminal attorneys seek to have misdemeanor charges dismissed or reduced to minimize their impact.
