Why Choose Our Las Vegas Criminal lawyers?

In any criminal accusation, the prosecutor must prove every element of the charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt. That means he or she must completely convince the jury that, other than some far-fetched scenario, what the prosecution says happened is absolutely the truth.

A Las Vegas criminal defense attorney does not have to prove anything. He does not have to prove that you are innocent. His job is to show the reasonable doubt that exists in the prosecution’s case by calling into question the evidence against you and introducing evidence that weakens the prosecutor’s case.

Attorney Michael Pariente is a former prosecutor and federal public defender who now exclusively fights for the rights of those accused of crimes in Las Vegas and the surrounding area. He can thoroughly investigate your case, collect and examine evidence, negotiate with the prosecution, and help you either get your entire case dismissed or your charges/penalties reduced.

About Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a large city known for its many casinos and attractions, but when it was first established in 1905, it consisted of only 110 acres of land that was auctioned off by the local railroad companies. Over the years, Las Vegas grew into a thriving community supported by the thriving hotel and casino industry and the Nellis Air Force Base. Now, it’s home to over 646,000 permanent residents, and countless tourists flock to the city year-round to visit icons like Fremont Street, Caesar’s Palace, and the Bellagio. In Las Vegas, you can always see a show, visit a museum, or enjoy one of the city’s countless other cultural offerings.
