400 South 4th Street, Suite 500
Las Vegas, NV 89101

If you have been charged with a crime in the state of Nevada, Attorney Fischer will personally sit down with you, review any evidence against you, and advise you regarding the best defense strategy for your case.

His goal is to ensure that your exposure to the criminal justice system is avoided or kept to a minimum, whether the best defense strategy calls for a trial or a negotiated settlement.

David R. Fischer is licensed to practice law in Nevada State and Federal Courts primarily in the field of criminal defense. As a fierce advocate on behalf of his clients, Attorney Fischer does not give up until the right result is achieved, whether inside or outside of the courtroom.

He has successfully argued in excess of 1,000 hearings, including:

Bail motions
Plea negotiations
Trial bargaining
Bench trials
Jury trials
Fugitive hearings
Pre-trial hearings
Status check hearings
Preliminary hearings
Arraignment hearings
Probation violation hearings

Attorney Fischer routinely obtains dismissals, reductions, and acquittals for his clients. His aggressive yet competent defense strategy approach revolves around a “client-centered advocacy”, which translates to a uniquely tailored defense for each case.

Specialized Settlement Advocacy Training

Attorney Fischer is an especially skilled negotiator as his education includes specialized settlement advocacy training from Pepperdine University. This distinguishes him from his peers who typically only have a law degree, which in most cases teaches very little about settlement advocacy.

98% of all criminal cases end up with a negotiated resolution. Attorney David Fischer is able to create value for his clients through favorable settlements.

In the event that a settlement is not in the client’s best interest, Attorney David Fischer and his legal team are prepared to skillfully proceed to trial.
