A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. At this point, you could reach out to local attorneys to discuss. A landlord-tenant attorney would probably be in the best position to advise about eviction. In terms of the cars, you already included Criminal Law for...View More
If you have an active warrant and you contact the district attorney's office, it is possible that they may become aware of your situation. District attorneys and law enforcement agencies often communicate and share information about warrants and ongoing cases.

When I login to get my account transcripts. For some reason as of last Friday I was able to see 2014 and 2015 and download them. However as of yesterday Saturday I can see all of them except for 2014 and 2015 it says N/A for those years.
Transcripts only stay available online for a certain period of time. If you did not owe any taxes for a particular year it is not unusual for them to be removed. January is the time of year that the IRS updates its systems so that may be why they disappeared. There is no guarantee that this is...View More

Yes, in state court he can apply for bail during extradition proceedings, but it's still in the judge's discretion to grant bail pending the formal extradition. I've done this successfully for clients before.
The high school by my house has a sign allowing people to use the track for exercise and dog walking. I use the track in the summer when schools out. Usually at 11:00pm-1:00am, so I like to have a firearm on me. Is this allowed since the school is closed for several months, and it’s in the... View More
No. See NRS 202.265. This statute does not have an exception for the time of day. The track is part of school property for any Nevada public school I know about. You can face a criminal charge for being on school property with a gun at any time. It's a gross misdemeanor, and you can face up to...View More
What would happen if there are spy cams unknown to the owners in their homes? I’m suspecting that there are hidden cameras in my home. People seem to know what I've been up to in my home without telling anyone and I'm told that there are hidden cameras in my house. Is there a law that... View More
I'm sorry for your ordeal. This is something a Nevada attorney could advise best on, but your question remains open for four weeks. You could look into the cost of investigators. To save money, you might be able to conduct some of your own investigations on the property. If you find that...View More
On Feb 18, 2015 I was stopped at Kohl's for allegedly shoplifting a purse worth about $50. I never heard anything more about it after that day until now. Apparently they filed a criminal complaint in my maiden name on March 30, 2015. I am supposed to go in to jail to be booked and my OR is... View More
The charges were filed within one year of the alleged act, so the statute of limitations has been met. So you are not passed the statute of limitations. If they issued a warrant for your arrest at that time or when you failed to show up, the warrant just remains outstanding until you respond....View More
Feel free to contact me at 702.448.7981. Plea agreements can be difficult to withdraw, but not impossible. There are multiple reasons for it to be set aside, even after a judgment is entered in some cases. Malcolm.
I was arrested in an underage prostitution sting, they towed the truck I drove to the meeting away and will not release it back to me. They have told me they are looking at forfeiture, is there anything I can do?
It's complicated because it can be both a civil and criminal matter. There are recent Supreme Court cases on this issue. You need to retain a lawyer immediately to figure this out, or you will lose the truck by default.
Hello, I was arrested for Assault/ Deadly Weapon, which was amended to Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct, in 2010. It is non DV related. The conviction carries a possible maximum sentence of 6 months. Would I be banned from firearm ownership due to the initial charge of ADW, even though it was amended... View More
This type of conviction is not an automatic bar to prohibiting you from possessing firearms, but you should get a Nevada attorney to seal your prior criminal record. And always fully disclose if you are asked about prior arrests/convictions of certain types when you apply for a firearm permit or...View More
If formal charges were filed in 2009, then no. The warrant stays forever, most of the time. I've had people with warrants out for seven or eight years. They left the state, and then they apply for a special job or a professional license, so it finally comes up. So the charge has to be dealt...View More
