Attorney Profile

If you want a Las Vegas criminal defense attorney with a proven track record of success, choose Gregory D. Knapp, Esq.

Greg KnappNot only am I significantly more qualified than nearly every other Las Vegas criminal defense attorney, but I also have a fantastic track record including a huge denial record in 2016 alone! A high rate of cases I’ve handled this year have been dismissed before my clients step foot into a court room.

As a former Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney, I have experience working on both sides of the courtroom, a background that gives me unique insight into the strategies that are likely to be used against you. Over the course of 10 years serving as a prosecutor, I gained first-hand knowledge of the procedures employed by law enforcement in investigating and prosecuting cases, and I know where to look for errors and weaknesses in the case that can be exploited to your advantage.

Between my time as a prosecutor and my career as a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer, I have been serving the community since 1998. Unlike many attorneys, I personally handle all my clients’ cases. When you come to the office of Gregory D. Knapp, Esq., you will be working with Gregory Knapp. This client-centered approach allows me to get to know you so that I can more effectively tell your story in court. As a result, I have a very high rate of case dismissals. In other words, I am very often successful in clearing my client’s name without even taking the case to a full jury trial. For examples of how I have helped clients in the past, take a moment to review some of my testimonials.

Don’t Settle for Less! Hire the Best!

I have the experience, success rate, knowledge and connections that set me apart from the rest. Hire Greg Knapp and give yourself the best possible chance.
