No one truly wants to get into a situation that requires violence, but sometimes things get out of hand. Under Nevada law, you have a right to protect yourself. In fact, many criminal charges involving violence are actually self defense situations.
In order for a case to be legally considered self defense, you must meet the following two criteria:
- At the time of the incident, you truly felt you were in danger of bodily harm.
- You used no more force than necessary to stop the assailant.
These two requirements sound simple on paper, but often times they are not so simple in real life. If you are facing criminal charges in a situation that you believe was self defense, contact the office of Gabriel L. Grasso, who many satisfied clients consider the best criminal defense lawyer in Las Vegas.
