Below are just some of the criminal law areas in which Adrian has expertise zealously advocating for her clients.
It is no secret that drug use in Las Vegas is very common, and it’s a fact that Las Vegas city and Nevada state officials hate. Las Vegas and Clark County police are tireless in their pursuit of drug dealers and users, and Nevada punishes drug crimes severely. Penalties for drug crimes range from probation up to long-term imprisonment, depending on the type of drug and the amount possessed. Even marijuana, if sold illegally or possessed in large enough quantities, can land you in prison for an extended period of time. If you are a visitor caught with a controlled substance, or a Las Vegas local picked up for your makeshift import/export business, you need a passionate and committed criminal defense lawyer who will work to get your charges reduced or dropped and keep your weekend off from ruining the rest of your life. Don’t come on vacation and leave on probation. Call Lobo Law for help.
“White collar” or “business” crimes may not feel the same as armed robbery while someone is committing the act, but the punishments for white collar convictions are all too real. White collar convictions can cost you thousands of dollars, disrupt your business, affect your professional licenses, and can land you in a Nevada state prison for an extended term just like any other felony. Las Vegas has its own special crimes and punishment for casino debt, as well. If you are charged with a white collar crime, you need knowledgeable and savvy legal help from a criminal defense attorney who understands both the complexities of the applicable laws and the underlying facts and circumstances that make up white collar cases.
Crimes of violence lead to some of the most serious and emotionally charged cases. Felony violent crimes carry the most severe penalties, up to and including life in prison without the possibility of parole. Unfortunately, because violent crimes can get the attention of the media, often defendants and their attorneys have to fight a simultaneous battle in a legal court and the court of public opinion. Even an acquittal, if the case is not handled perfectly, can ruin a defendant’s public image. When you face the cases with the highest stakes, you need a dedicated and skilled criminal defense attorney who knows how to zealously fight on your behalf while maintaining discretion and preserving your best options and defenses.
Crimes involving sexual conduct present some of the most sensitive and difficult cases to handle. Allegations can turn into de facto convictions in the eyes of the police, the prosecutor, and the court of public opinion. Sex crimes often turn on the intentions of the people involved in a given encounter, and they require delicate but firm legal advocacy. The penalties for sex crimes can be extremely severe, some as heavy as the penalties for murder. Sex crimes also carry a heavy social stigma, particularly because convictions often also involve registering as a sex offender. Being placed on the sex offender registry can have lasting consequences for housing and employment, as well as a myriad of other unforeseen repercussions. Adrian Lobo understands the serious and sensitive nature of sex crime charges and is prepared to defend you to the fullest extent possible.
