My nephew is in Las Vegas Nevad, I'm from Oklahoma City

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes, he has been accused of murder

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Criminal defense attorneys who work "pro bono" are called public defenders and he is entitled to one under the US Constitution. You can go to the local court and ask for the public defender's office and they will direct you there and they will arrange for representation for him.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
