Las Vegas Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys

In some situations, individuals are wrongly accused of domestic violence by angry or jealous ex-spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends. During a divorce, a spouse may be trying to gain the upper hand in a child custody battle, or another legal matter. Whatever the case may be, charges of domestic violence, assault and battery are taken very seriously in the state of Nevada. If you are facing charges of this kind, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can increase the chances of reducing or eliminating the charges you face. At Wright Stanish & Winckler, we have been handling criminal defense cases since 1987, including drug offenses, fraud, theft, gambling, domestic violence, assault and battery. To speak with an attorney at the firm, contact us online or by calling 702-382-4004.

We will work to protect your rights and interests if you have been charged with:

  • Domestic violence — Domestic violence can take place between anyone who cohabits, including a husband and wife, girlfriend and boyfriend, roommates, and same-sex couples. Physical contact that results in bodily injury and the threat of physical abuse constitute domestic violence. Domestic abuse allegations are taken very seriously and can result in loss of custody of your children, loss of employment and possible deportation if you are an immigrant living in the U.S.
  • Assault — Assault charges can be filed if an individual acted in a way that intentionally made another person feel that he or she was in danger of being physically harmed. No physical contact needs to take place for an act to be considered assault.
  • Battery — Battery is the actual physical act of intentionally harming someone by pushing, shoving, hitting, strangling or any other action that results in bodily injury.
