The city of Las Vegas has seen a higher-than-average rate of violent crimes nearly every year for over a decade as shown in statistics provided by City-Data.com. These crimes include murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglaries, thefts, auto thefts, and arson, which only begin to scratch the surface of the charges filed in Las Vegas every year.

Violent crimes are those involving the threat or infliction of bodily injury to a victim. Therefore, violent crimes can include anything from assault and battery to manslaughter, DUI with injury, or domestic violence. Conviction of any such crime could result in jail time and high fines, or even a prison sentence, so don’t take chances. Contact the firm of Gregory D. Knapp, Esq. right away if you have been arrested for a violent crime in Las Vegas.

The state of Nevada is very strict when it comes to controlled substances. These drugs include, but are not limited to:

marijuana
cocaine
heroin
methamphetamine
These substances are listed under the state and federal Schedules for controlled substances, and any illegal act involving them may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. This depends on the nature of the drug and the amount in question.

Some of the most common drug crimes in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas include:

Possession
Possession with Intent to Distribute
Sales
Trafficking
If you are charged with any of these or other drug crimes, you could face years-or even decades-in prison, as well as an astronomical fine. You will forever have a mark on your record and will find it difficult to succeed in a career due to your conviction. Your best decision after being arrested for a drug crime would be to hire a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.



DRUG DEFENSES WITH GREGORY D. KNAPP, ESQ.

When you come to my firm for help, there are a number of effective defense strategies that I may implement on your behalf. First, I may be able to prove that the police conducted an unlawful search and seizure. According to the 4th Amendment, police may search your belongings only with a warrant or your consent. If they did not have either of those, then they are not permitted to submit their findings as evidence.

Another defense for your case may be that the drugs belonged to another person. If another person had control over or access to the area in which the drugs were found, then ownership can be questioned. The prosecution may not be able to prove that the drugs belonged to you and not another person who had access to the drugs.

If police officers entrapped you into taking the drugs or passing them on to someone else, then I may be able to get your case dismissed. It is illegal for government officials to pressure individuals into committing a crime that they might not have otherwise committed. Seek out my firm if you want further information about the defenses that can be applied to your case!

Have you been arrested for a DUI of alcohol or drugs? If so, my firm has what it takes to defend you from a conviction and the harsh penalties that come with it. Drunk driving accidents account for one out of every four fatal traffic collisions in Las Vegas and statewide. In light of statistics such as these, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police and Nevada Highway Patrol officers are quick to act when they suspect that a driver is intoxicated. Sometimes they are too eager, however, and make a wrongful police stop or drunk driving arrest. In other cases, officers have arrest quotas to meet, a fact that may influence the outcome of a DUI / DWI investigation. As a former Chief Deputy District Attorney for Clark County, I have first-hand experience with the internal workings of the criminal justice system in Las Vegas, and I know how law enforcement and prosecutors in this area handle DUI cases.

The law requires that police officers follow strict procedures in making DUI stops, administering field sobriety tests and breath and blood tests, and in making DWI arrests. Should an officer fail to follow procedure, the results of these tests could be a false positive and you could be wrongfully arrested. Alternatively, you may have been a victim of an illegal traffic stop if the officer did not have reasonable suspicion to pull you over or probable cause to investigate. I have handled hundreds of criminal defense and DUI defense cases over the years, including:

First-time DUI

Repeat DUI offenses

DUI of drugs

Under 21 DUI

DUI hit-and-run

Vehicular manslaughter

In the course of my career, I have obtained many dismissals for clients who had been charged with driving under the influence. There is no guarantee of results in any case, but you can greatl improve your chances of success by hiring me to fight for you. Depending on the circumstances of your case, I may be able to have the evidence suppressed in order to get the charges dropped. I may be able to secure an acquittal at trial. Even if it is not possible to clear your name, I can still seek to have the penalties reduced through a favorable plea bargain.

If you have received a DUI, it is essential you retain an attorney as soon as possible in order to minimize penalties!

Between my time as a prosecutor and my career as a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer, I have been serving the community since 1998. Unlike many attorneys, I personally handle all my clients' cases. When you come to the office of Gregory D. Knapp, Esq., you will be working with Gregory Knapp. This client centered approach allows me to get to know you so that I can more effectively tell your story in court. As a result, I have a very high rate of case dismissals. In other words, I am very often successful in clearing my client's name without even taking the case to a full jury trial. For examples of how I have helped clients in the past, take a moment to review some of my testimonials.
