Veteran Defense Attorney in Las Vegas

Supporting Veterans with Fierce Representation

Our nation’s honorable veterans make a huge sacrifice for their country. Unfortunately, many of these brave service men and women experience significant difficulty when transitioning back to normal life after serving in the military. Many veterans experienced unspeakable trauma while deployed and now suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Given the circumstances, some ex-military members find themselves accused of crimes, facing charges when already dealing with significant stress and life changes.

At the Law Office of David R. Fischer, we offer comprehensive defense representation for veterans in Las Vegas. We are sympathetic to the needs and struggles of our nation’s veterans and are familiar with the various programs and alternatives that can spare veterans from criminal convictions.

If you or someone you love is a veteran who has been charged with a crime, please call us at (702) 866-9864 for a free consultation.

Common Criminal Charges for Veterans

Reentering civilian life after serving in the military can be a significant shock to the system. It is extremely common for veterans to suffer physically, mentally, and emotionally when trying to get back to their daily routine in the U.S. In these difficult conditions, many veterans turn to drinking, drug use, or violence, leading to criminal charges.

We represent veterans who have been charged with any crime, including:

We make every effort to get charges dropped or to help clients avoid jail time by pushing for diversion programs and other alternatives. Our firm has a track record of success in these kinds of cases.
