We know that what we do has a profound impact on the lives of people we serve. When we choose to take a case, we do so with an understanding of what is at stake and a deep sense of commitment to the people we represent.
What makes our firm different from other criminal defense firms is our trial experience. Some criminal defense attorneys have a lot of bark, but when they go up against a tough minded prosecutor, they have little bite.
When push comes to shove, many criminal defense lawyers simply do not want to take cases to trial.

But only when we feel a plea is in our client's best interests. We will not hesitate to take a case to trial if we feel that will lead to the best result.
We are passionate defenders of our clients and their rights. We would want it no other way if our liberty was at stake and we will have it no other way if your liberty is at stake.

Areas of Law Description
Oronoz Ericsson handles all criminal charges, including:
- DUI / DWI
If you are charged with drinking and driving, do not make the mistake of taking your charges lightly. Contrary to what you may have heard from friends or family, DUI charges are a serious matter. A DUI charge is a criminal charge like any other. Penalties that may be imposed for drunk driving include jail time, probation, loss of driving privileges and court fines. A DUI conviction may also result in a significant increase in auto insurance rates. And of course, if you are found guilty of drunk driving you will have a criminal record.
- DUI / DWI Charges: Second and Third Offenses
The state of Nevada has strict DUI laws. If you have been arrested for a second or third DUI, you are at risk of serious criminal penalties, including mandatory jail time. A second DUI conviction carries a mandatory 10 day jail sentence. If you have a third DUI conviction within seven years of previous DUI charges, you face a mandatory prison sentence of up to six years if convicted. If you are being charged as a repeat DUI offender, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who will provide a vigorous defense on your behalf. Whether it is fair or not, people with the best attorneys often get the best results.
- Domestic Violence
Over the course of the last decade, Nevada law enforcement has stepped up its efforts to curb incidents of domestic violence. As a result, domestic violence is one of the most common causes of arrest in Nevada. If you are charged with battery, harassment, stalking, terroristic threats, domestic violence or any other domestic related charge, protect your rights. Speak with an attorney immediately. Do not assume the prosecution will drop your charges because your girlfriend, boyfriend or spouse has asked police not to pursue criminal charges.
- Domestic Violence: Repeat Offenders
If you have been charged with a second or third domestic violence charge in the state of Nevada, it is critical that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney who will protect your rights. Repeat offenders are subject to serious criminal penalties which may include significant jail time, probation, court fines, court ordered anger management counseling, restriction of the right to own a firearm and a restraining order.
- Drug Possession
If you are facing drug possession charges, the attorney you choose is important. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be knowledgeable about a wide range of plea scenarios which may allow you to avoid a criminal conviction or plead guilty to a lesser offense. If you decide to take your case to trial, an experienced defense attorney can mean the difference between a conviction and an acquittal. An experienced defense attorney can make pre-trial motions that may weaken the prosecution's evidence and improve your chances for success.
- Drug Trafficking / Distribution
If you are charged with the illegal sale or distribution of drugs, the prosecution will be seeking significant criminal penalties which may include a lengthy jail or prison sentence. Many state and federal drug charges carry mandatory jail sentences that are tremendously severe. Our attorneys will stand up to the prosecution and aggressively defend your rights. We have handled many drug trafficking cases, and have a proven record of results in felony criminal cases. We are familiar with the challenges prosecutors face when trying to prove the elements of a drug distribution, trafficking or conspiracy charge.
- Violent Crimes
If you are charged with a violent crime and face the possibility of significant jail time, the attorney you choose may be one of the most important decisions of your life time. Make the right decision by retaining a criminal defense attorney who will aggressively protect your rights, take your case to trial if necessary and fight every step of the way to get the best possible result in your case. If you are facing criminal charges in Las Vegas or the surrounding area, you can find the quality legal representation you need at Oronoz Ericsson. Our criminal defense attorneys offer experienced and aggressive representation against all state and federal charges.
- Sex Crimes
Being accused of a sex crime is different from being accused of any other criminal offense. The mere allegation of a sex crime can cost you your job, your marriage, your reputation in the community and your peace of mind. Moreover, sex crimes are handled differently by the state than any other type of crime. They are perceived differently and prosecuted differently. Frequently, sex crimes carry mandatory jail sentences and a conviction may result in registration as a sex offender.
- White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes charges are significantly different than other criminal charges. Frequently, white collar crimes are prosecuted in federal courts. The federal criminal justice system is different from state criminal courts in a number of respects. If you have been arrested and charged for a white collar crime, it is important that you retain an attorney who knows how to properly handle federal cases and white collar charges. At Oronoz Ericsson in Las Vegas, Nevada, we have helped many clients facing white collar crimes charges protect their rights. We handle a wide range of white collar charges.
- Theft & Fraud
Nothing looks worse on a job application or college application than a theft offense. It immediately creates the impression of dishonesty and lack of trustworthiness. If retained to handle your case, our criminal defense attorneys will provide a vigorous defense on your behalf. If you are facing felony theft charges, we may be able to obtain a plea agreement that allows you to plead to a lesser misdemeanor offense. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor theft offense, we may be able to obtain a plea resolution to your case that avoids a criminal record altogether or allows you to plead to a lesser offense that will not look as bad on your record.
- Casino Markers / Bad Checks
It should come as no surprise that Las Vegas aggressively protects the interests of its casinos. One of the ways that Nevada protects casinos is by treating unpaid casino markers as bad checks. If you fail to pay your casino marker, you will likely receive one or more aggressive letters telling you that you must pay your casino marker in full. If you fail to do so, you can - and probably will - be arrested and charged with a crime. Failing to pay a casino marker can be a very serious charge. In certain instances you may even face felony charges.
- Weapons Charges
Have you been arrested for a state or federal weapons charge? Many weapons crimes carry mandatory prison sentences. Protect your rights by retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney who will work diligently to obtain the best possible result in your case.
When people think of burglary, they often think of people breaking into the home of another person and stealing things from their home. The crime of burglary, however, is much broader in scope. In the state of Nevada, anyone who illegally enters a building with the intent to commit other crimes may be found guilty of burglary. The prosecution does not have to prove that the defendant actually committed another crime while in the building. Rather, the prosecution merely has to prove the intent to commit another crime.
- Prostitution / Solicitation Charges / Exotic Dancers
Anyone charged with a crime should assume that the future is unknown. Fighting every criminal charge aggressively and getting the best possible result is the best way to limit your exposure to being tried as a repeat offender. People charged with a second count of solicitation or prostitution face much stiffer penalties, so fighting each charge is important.
- Murder / Manslaughter / Related Charges
No criminal charge is more serious or complex than a murder charge. If you are charged with murder, manslaughter or another charge involving the death or serious bodily injury of another person, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who will fight to protect your freedom, rights and future. At Oronoz Ericsson in Las Vegas, we have helped many clients facing serious felony charges, including murder charges. We handle cases in state and federal courts. Our attorneys offer an aggressive defense against all violent crimes charges, including: First degree murder; Second degree murder; Manslaughter; and Involuntary manslaughter.
