Cases We Handle

DUI: If you are accused of a DUI offense, you are at risk of losing your license, facing steep fines, jail time, and other penalties. Your first move after an arrest should be to contact our firm to protect your rights and seek a positive outcome, whether it’s a case dismissal, reduced charge, or an acquittal at trial.

Drug crimes: Nevada lawmakers have imposed heavy penalties for drug crimes, including possession with intent, trafficking, transportation, grow house offenses, drug manufacturing, and many others. If you are accused of a drug crime, you need a criminal lawyer who will vigorously fight for your defense. 

Violent crimes: Charges related to a crime of violence, including assault, battery, robbery, arson, or other offense are heavily punished after a conviction. The outcome of your case will in large part, be determined by the skills of your criminal defense lawyer. Don’t take chances with your future – contact the Law Offices of Cotter C. Conway for representation from a talented, hands-on lawyer who is dedicated to crafting an aggressive, well thought-out defense. 

Traffic tickets: A traffic ticket does more than cause you stress. As the points on your license add up, your car insurance rates increase, and you may lose your right to drive. Our legal team can help defend you against a traffic ticket to seek a positive outcome.

Expungement or sealing of records: If your criminal record is affecting your employment, reputation, and success in your chosen profession, you have the right to seek to expunge or seal your record, so it is not accessible to potential employers, relationship partners, landlords, or other persons. 

Minor in consumption or possession: A person under 21 who is found to be in possession of alcohol, or who is believed to be intoxicated, can face serious consequences, including up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. If your son or daughter is accused of underage drinking or possession, our criminal lawyer can help you seek alternatives to limit the damage to your child’s education, future employment, and success in life.

Trespassing: A charge of trespassing is a misdemeanor, but it is not a minor legal problem. If convicted of trespass, the penalties can include up to 6 months in jail and fines up to $1,000. Our criminal lawyer can craft a defense case to challenge the charge in court, or negotiate for a case dismissal, reduced charge, or other advantage.

Financial crimes: In Reno, teams of law enforcement personnel are focused on identifying persons involved in financial crimes, including credit card fraud, embezzlement, identity theft, and check fraud. The penalties imposed will reflect the dollar value of the crime. Exercise your right to remain silent and connect with the Law Offices of Cotter C. Conway immediately if you are accused of any financial crime.

False ID: If you are accused of using a false ID, you could be facing serious legal consequences. If it is believed you used a false ID to engage in fraud, you may be facing a felony charge that will impact the rest of your life. Whether used for work, to enter a facility when underage, or for any other reason, the risk of facing serious legal consequences is high – get a lawyer. 

Gaming fraud: Nevada state police agencies have special units tasked with identifying any person who is engaged in gaming fraud. Gaming fraud charges may be filed if it is believed that you, working alone or with another person, gained an advantage in a casino by gaining inside knowledge. 

Vandalism: The level of a vandalism charge will vary based on the damage caused by the act. If it is believed that you are guilty of willfully or maliciously destroying the property of another, and you are found guilty in court, you could face fines, community service, jail time, restitution, and the loss of your driver’s license. Don’t take chances – contact the Law Offices of Cotter C. Conway for dedicated, talented criminal defense lawyer to help you fight back.

Other criminal charges: If you are under investigation by the authorities, or have already been charged with a crime, the skills, experience, and talents of your criminal attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
