What Hiring Our Firm Will Get You

Developing a powerful defense requires thorough investigation. Our firm works with a team of forensic experts, state and federal investigators, and expert witnesses who can testify to your innocence and help us preserve your freedom. Our experience in handling hundreds of criminal cases gives us insight into how judges, juries, and prosecutors think.

At Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P., we represent clients in all types of criminal defense matters, including cases involving:

If you have been arrested or formally charged, it is vital that you speak with an attorney before speaking with the police or the prosecutors. Your own testimony, even innocently given, can be used against you. An attorney will be able to speak on your behalf, ensuring that you do not incriminate yourself on accident.

What to Do If You Have Been Accused of a Crime

If someone has accused you of a crime, or if you have already been arrested for and/or charged with a criminal offense, it is critical that you take several important steps to protect your rights.

If you are accused of or arrested for a crime in Reno or anywhere in Nevada, make sure to do the following:

  • Comply with the arresting officer’s orders. Do not resist arrest or you could face additional charges and penalties.
  • Aside from giving your name and providing identification (if applicable), refrain from speaking to police or law enforcement officials. You do NOT have to answer any questions, including during a traffic stop.
  • Avoid answering any questions or speaking to prosecutors, even during questioning/interrogation without an attorney present.
  • Contact an attorney as soon as possible. A criminal defense lawyer in Nevada can help you obtain bail (if applicable), participate in police questioning, and negotiate a plea bargain and/or represent you at trial.

Note that in the state of Nevada, you are required to identify yourself to law enforcement. However, you are only required to provide identification (such as a driver’s license) in the event of a traffic stop. Additionally, in order to enact your right to remain silent, you must clearly state your wish to do so. If a police officer or another official begins asking you questions, you may state that you will not answer any questions until you have contacted an attorney.

What’s the Difference Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?

In California, a misdemeanor crime is less sever than a felony. The maximum sentence for a misdemeanor is no more than one year in county jail.
