    Answered . If this happened in Las Vegas, you'll need to look for an attorney licensed in the state of Nevada. You may want to repost this in the Nevada criminal section to make sure it gets picked up by them.

    How much will it cost? I don't know - that's between you and the attorney you hire in Vegas to represent you. Costs can vary, depending on your lawyer's experience, whether or not it is going to trial, how bad the reports read against you...

    Answered . You should properly post this in the Nevada section, furthermore most criminal defense attorneys offer consultations at no cost... i would suggest that you contact a few immediately and seek to discuss your case with them.

    This site also features am attorney search by field of law and by state, i would suggest that you may also run a search for attorneys in that area and seek to contact a few through this site.
