Battery Defense

"Battery" is the willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another. Generally, if the battery did not involve a weapon (such as a knife or gun) or did not result in permanent physical damage, then the crime may be classified as a misdemeanor. Batteries with weapons or serious injury are felonies. The Clark County District Attorney’s Office, prosecutes all felony cases and any misdemeanor cases that occur outside of the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City and Mesquite.

Domestic violence is a violent confrontation that occurs between family members or between people who live together or between people in a dating relationship.

Contact Vegas Defense Lawyers if you are facing battery or domestic violence charges.
