About John Henry Wright

Attorney Biography

In Nevada, almost every drug crime from simple possession to drug trafficking is a felony, with the only exception being possession of less than one ounce of Marijuana. All drug offenses are serious offenses that should not be taken lightly! Some drug charges are even considered Class A felonies in Nevada, and can come with mandatory prison time if convicted.

If you have been charged with a drug crime in Las Vegas, do not wait to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. The attorneys at The Wright Law Group, P.C. have more than 25 years of experience with complex drug crimes. More than a third of our criminal defense practice is dedicated to defending drug crimes including drug possession and drug trafficking. We understand the ins and out of medical and recreational cannabis, and we have the experience to give you the best possible defense. Take a look at some of our case results below - many of our cases involve large quantities of marijuana.

In addition to drug crimes, The Wright Law Group, P.C. is a full-service criminal defense law firm handling everything from misdemeanor offenses such as DUI and Domestic Violence, to more serious offenses such as Arson, Burglary, and Sex Crimes. We also handle financial (white collar) crimes such as Bribery, Embezzlement, Fraud, Forgery, and Money Laundering.

Whether you are local to us in Las Vegas, across the state in Nevada, or from across the country, we can help. Many of our former clients have been residents of other states; and in some cases, we have been able to resolve their cases without them even having to come back and appear in court.

In addition to handling drug crimes, we also represent clients involved in the commercial cannabis industry. We assist our business clients who need representation and assistance navigating the new and complex laws and regulations surrounding the legal marijuana industry in Nevada.

If you have been arrested in Nevada, or if you are involved in a commercial cannabis business and need legal assistance, call The Wright Law Group, P.C. today at (702) 405-0001. Our consultations are always free and confidential.
