    • Selected as best answer

    Unfortunately, we have had repeated frustrations with all of our records sealing cases over the past year, including a major change in procedure. I think I know the identity of this client, and have spoken with you repeatedly regarding your case. I am willing to refund you at this point, even though it is actually the court we are waiting on...

  • Temporary resident vehicle registration

    Hi, I own a condo out there in Vegas. I was going to drive one of my cars out there and leave it. Do I need to register it in Nevada? We spend only a couple of days a month out there. Thank you.

    Thomas’s Answer

    No. Just be prepared to prove out of state residency if you are pulled over. A utility bill from your out of state property generally works.

  • I was arrested for domestic violence - strangulation and I am a permanent resident. What are my options?

    I did admit to the cops that I did it. I was not on drugs or alcohol at the time. My girlfriend (victim) is pregnant, but the baby is okay, but she did have marks on her neck. We are no longer together because of the incident and she will testi...

    Thomas’s Answer

    First of all you need to be concerned with the risk of prison. Battery constituting domestic violence with strangulation is a Felony and bears serious consequences. You need a skilled criminal defense attorney who is also familiar with immigration consequences. Pleading guilty to a misdemeanor battery domestic violence is not going to be helpful. If a plea bargain is appropriate, it will take serious negotiation skills since the victim is cooperating with the prosecution. You need a lawyer now.

  • My brother is facing 7 counts of production of pornography in Nevada

    The state declined now to prosecute and I'm sure it's because the photos do NOT meet the definition of pornography because the kid was goofing around and mooning the photographer and his parent was present at the shoot! The Feds have taken the cas...

    Thomas’s Answer

    Your question does not makes sense. However, Nevada has a fee-shifting statute that could award the prevailing party attorney fees. You need to talk to your lawyer.

    Never been in trouble before, we got in an argument, my friend had fallen that night and had a scratch, and i was taken in for domestic violence even tho no charges were being made

    Thomas’s Answer

    Yes. A lot of things can happen, based on the experience of your privately-hired defense attorney. Hire one. There is no single answer that makes a DV case go away.

  • BDV, falsely accused. I was arrested. 1st arrest ever. If DA drops, will this stay on my record?

    My daughter accused me of hitting her in a room at a casino this weekend, in Laughlin, NV. I live in Henderson. She was upset after her phone was thrown into a pool by her 3 yr old and wanted to go home. I refused. Arguing escalated to yelling...

    Thomas’s Answer

    You need a lawyer. There are too many variables going on here to make an accurate prediction. Cops say a lot of things at the scene, but it is the DA's decision to charge you or not. Very often, they go forward with the case. Defending battery domestic violence is quite complex, and those with private attorneys end up better off in general. Hire private counsel.

  • Hello, with all due respect, how does one file a complaint about an attorney's actions--possibly due to business and staff?

    Thomas’s Answer

    Mr. Natoli's answer is correct, but not specific to Nevada. You can call the Nevada State Bar Discipline Committee at 382-2200. They are granted authority over attorney discipline. They will evaluate your claim and determine if discipline is warranted. If you feel malpractice was committed, contact a legal malpractice attorney for a consultation.

    Many times, when clients have disputes with us, they can be solved by sitting down with the attorney so he can explain everything in detail. I would encourage you to contact him, if you are so inclined.
