Las Vegas Felony Defense Attorney Contests Serious Criminal Charges

Criminal attorney in Clark County, Nevada fights for defendants facing prison or worse

If you are convicted of a felony, the consequences can be dire. You may spend years in prison and, in the most serious cases, may face life in prison or even the death penalty. No matter what felony charge has been made, you need a skillful, experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. At Miley Law Firm, I have the skill, experience and capability you need to give you the best chance of avoiding severe punishments.

Skilled attorney vigorously defends clients accused of all types of felonies

A felony is any crime punishable by death or incarceration for more than a year in a state prison. Nevada categorizes a number of different crimes as felonies, including:

  • Murder — Premeditated homicide
  • Manslaughter — Unpremeditated homicide
  • Rape — Forcible sexual intercourse
  • Sexual assault — Forcible sexual contact
  • Felony assault — Threatening someone with a deadly weapon
  • Felony battery — Intentional infliction of physical force with a deadly weapon with intent to commit a crime, resulting in substantial bodily harm
  • Kidnapping — Unlawfully taking someone’s freedom by force, threat or deception
  • Robbery — Taking money or property by force or threat of force
  • Burglary — Breaking and entering into a structure to commit a felony
  • Driving under the influence — Driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent, if convicted for a third time within seven years

The punishments for felonies vary with the gravity of the crime. The least serious felonies, such as possessing a fraudulent drug prescription or a first or second conviction for possession of cocaine for personal use, carries a potential penalty of one to four years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. People convicted of first-degree murder may be sentenced to death or life without the possibility of parole, while rape can result in a life sentence with the possibility of parole. I am experienced in providing vigorous criminal defense to people accused of all types of felony, no matter how serious or what punishment they face.

Why you need skillful representation when charged with a felony

I understand how high the stakes are for anyone accused of a felony, even the least serious. Once you engage me to represent you, I spring into action. I don’t accept the evidence assembled by the police at face value but carefully investigate the case in its entirety, looking for holes in the prosecution’s evidence that I can use in your defense. I scrutinize police conduct and methods to find procedural violations that may convince the court to exclude key evidence. I also challenge the competence, recollections and veracity of prosecution witnesses, the accuracy of test results and the reliability of other evidence. If you don’t want to risk going to trial, I may be able to plead down the offense to a less serious felony or even a misdemeanor and negotiate a reduced sentence for you. At all times, I am focused on achieving the best result I can for your benefit.

Miley comes off as a strong attorney that will get you remedy(like most attorneys) which is good bc they want new clients. His staff is friendly & professional when it comes to there client needs. However, I never used Miley Law Firm because at each meeting I felt rushed as if Miley wasn't listening to what I needed achieved but wanted me to pay to get started. That was a problem for me my situation was very complex and needed to be evaluated thourghly to represent me. I didn't see Miley doing that in fact all I saw coming was invoices in the near future from Miley not breaking my case down strategically. " - Paris Baker
