“The Best Defense Attorney in Town!”
“Hiring Robert guarantees you the best defense you can get. I am somewhat of a needy client, sometimes requiring a lot of one-on-one attention from my attorney. He has now represented me on multiple cases and still always gives me the time and respect and personal attention I require. He came highly recommended to me and I'm highly recommending him to you.”
“Oftentimes, these mass prosecutions fail because of the overreach,” said Robert Draskovich, a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer who represented a member of the Hells Angels in the Laughlin case. The charges against his client were dropped. In the Waco case, Mr. Draskovich predicted, “the majority of these people will walk.”
"I've never come across this before under those circumstances in my life, and there's been some pretty substantial people who have been victims of crimes that were embarrassing to them,"

"The state of Nevada should not be allowed to violate the Constitution," attorney Robert Draskovich said. "It doesn't matter whether a person has been convicted of an offense that the public may hate. No one is above the law, and it should be followed."
Attorney Robert Draskovich, who was responsible for responding to the government, said prosecutors did not give him notice of their court papers, though co-counsel Louis Schneider said he was informed but didn't recall telling Draskovich.
"I'm glad that the government had the wherewithal to see that there really may not have been a kidnapping and there really may not have been a hostage taking and, for that reason, agreed to enter into this negotiation with us," the lawyer said.
Plea agreements in the case have been sealed, but defense attorney Robert Draskovich Jr. said Lopez-Buelna pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine, conspiracy to launder money and two counts of money laundering. He faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.
