As a Nevada licensed bail agent, the law does not let us refer attorneys or give legal advice. My experience over the past 20 plus years I have noticed that a good attorney is worth every dollar spent. If I had a criminal complaint filed against me I would 100% hire an attorney to defend me.
Las Vegas is located in Clark County. Within Clark County a defendant could be in custody in several different jails. We have the Clark County Detention Center (CCDC) which is the largest county jail in the state of Nevada. Clark County has a couple of satellite jails for outlying areas (Laughlin) and overflow (Nellis AFB), but the bail is still processed at the main jail in downtown Las Vegas. There is the Las Vegas City Jail which houses inmates for misdemeanors for Las Vegas and both misdemeanors and Felonies for the city of North Las Vegas. There also is a jail in Henderson which is in Clark County and the second largest city in the state. Pahrump, which is in Nye County has it’s own jail. We service all of these jails.
