Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorneys
At the law firm of Rasmussen & Kang, we represent clients from all over the U.S. and worldwide in criminal cases in Las Vegas and throughout Nevada. These include criminal charges such as casino marker default. We have an aggressive approach to criminal defense, and we have years of experience defending individuals in the Las Vegas court system.
Regardless of where you live, if you face criminal charges, you need a highly-skilled criminal defense lawyer to represent you. Our firm regularly defends clients at every level of the State and Federal courts in cases involving misdemeanor charges and serious felonies, such as financial crimes or violent crimes.
Being Arrested Does Not Equal Guilt
Being arrested in Las Vegas on a criminal charge does not mean guilt or a conviction. You are presumed innocent until you are proven guilty in a court of law. The District Attorney has the burden of proven beyond a reasonable doubt that a jury should find you guilty. Rasmussen & Kang wants to prevent this from happening to you.
As highly-skilled, experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys, we will aggressively seek to have the charges dismissed or reduced with minimal penalties. We always seek the best possible outcome for you. We know the prosecutors, judges, criminal court process and the Las Vegas police. This comprehensive knowledge of the system, along with a thorough analysis of the facts, can produce a winning defense strategy.
Chris Rasmussen has handled six of the largest federal trials in Nevada history.
- United States v. Acosta et al.
- United States v. Kahre et al.
- United States v. Robert Young et al.
- United States v. David Camez et al.
- United States v. Benzer et al. Read more in the Las Vegas Tribune
- United States v. Bundy et al. Read more in the Las Vegas Review-Journal
He successfully defended Robert Furman who was charged in a multi-million dollar tax evasion case. Furman was found not guilty of all charges after a prolonged four month trial.
Rasmussen successfully defended the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in a federal RICO case in which the federal government if victorious would have been able to confiscated all of the Hells Angels famous trademarked artwork. The case facts involved a shoot out between the Hells Angels and the Mongols which created the largest crime scene ever analyzed by local police. After a year of pretrial litigation and a month of trial, Rasmussen and his fellow defense lawyers were able to resolve the case with Rasmussen’s client being dismissed from the case as a result of discovery violations by the ATF. See the Nevada Appeal‘s article “Laughlin Six allow Hells Angels to lay scratch out of court relatively unscathed” and The San Diego Tribune‘s “Jury in Las Vegas asked to doubt ‘snitches’ in Hells Angels case”.
Arizona Criminal Defense
Chris Rasmussen is licensed in the State of Arizona and has handled criminal cases throughout Arizona, but focuses on Mohave County Kingman Superior Court. This court serves as the court of jurisdiction for felonies that are charged out of Kingman, Bullhead, Fort Mohave, Lake Havasu, and the rest of the cities and towns located within Arizona’s largest county. It is common to see drug interdiction cases throughout interstate 40. Many clients are seemingly randomly stopped and searched traveling from California through Arizona to their destination. We have litigated Fourth Amendment search and seizure issues and have experience dealing with these police stops.
