Protect your rights during investigation
Joel M. Mann Will Fight for You
If you have been charged with a crime – or if you want to find legal representation for a friend or family member – do not wait to contact The Law Office of Joel M. Mann. Joel can:
Seek your release from custody
Whether you are taken into custody or asked to “come in for questioning,” you need a lawyer at your side. Joel will make sure you do not give any statements that can be used against you at a later stage.
Demand and analyze the prosecution’s evidence
Joel can represent you at a bail hearing and try to get you released while your case is pending. He can argue to a judge that you are neither a danger nor a flight risk. He can also request that your bail be set at a reasonable amount.
Pursue relief for you through pretrial motions
You have the right to know what evidence the prosecution plans to use against you. Joel will make sure your right to discovery is respected. He will also analyze the evidence and identify any problems with the prosecution’s case.
Explore your diversionary program options
Joel can determine whether police obtained evidence or statements from you in violation of your rights. For instance, the police may have conducted an illegal stop or search, or they may have failed to follow proper alcohol- or drug-testing procedures. Joel can file a motion to keep that evidence out of court, which could possibly lead to a dismissal of your charge.
Negotiate a fair plea agreement
If you are a first-time drug offender and meet all other eligibility requirements, Joel can help you to get into one of Nevada’s Drug Court programs. The program can help you to avoid jail time. If you complete it, your drug charge can be completely dismissed.
Advise you on whether to accept a plea or go to trial
Joel can meet with a prosecutor from the Clark County District Attorney’s Office (or other prosecutor’s office) and seek a plea agreement that minimizes your punishment if you choose to accept it. For instance, in exchange for a guilty plea, a prosecutor may agree to reduce or dismiss charges against you.
Fight aggressively for you in the courtroom
The decision to accept a plea offer or go to trial is yours – and yours alone – to make. Joel can provide as much information as you need to make your choice. He can review the evidence against you, your possible defenses, the terms of the plea offer and the pros and cons of entering a plea.
Minimize your punishment
If you go to trial, Joel will zealously represent you in the courtroom, from picking a jury to making a closing statement. Joel is a veteran trial attorney. You can count on him to vigorously cross-examine witnesses, challenge the prosecution’s evidence and present any defenses available to you such as an alibi or self-defense.
Handle all post-trial matters
If you are convicted of an offense, Joel will present evidence and arguments that are aimed at minimizing the consequences for you. For example, he could argue for sentencing in the lowest possible range or seek probation for you.
Joel can also represent you on post-trial matters. He can handle appeals at all levels – right up to the U.S. Supreme Court. He can also assist with issues such as probation violations or motions to seal your criminal records.
