Las Vegas Municipal Court handles misdemeanor and traffic cases allegedly occurring within the city limits. Las Vegas Justice Court hears all other criminal cases in Las Vegas. A Justice Court case may eventually be transferred (or "bound over") to Clark County District Court if the criminal charges include felonies or gross misdemeanors. (Note that appeals to the Nevada Court of Appeals and Nevada Supreme Court are heard in the Nevada Supreme Court building in Las Vegas).

Here if you were charged with something in the city limits its Justice Court , if you were outside the city but in Clark County it is justice court.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
