About Me

Las Vegas Nevada criminal & DUI defense lawyer Michael Becker has been helping clients fight--and beat--their criminal and DUI charges for 22 years.


 


Attorney Michael Becker has taken more than 90 criminal cases to trial, securing dozens of "not guilty" verdicts and hung juries. He has achieved acquittals in numerous serious felony cases, including murder, child abuse, rape, drugs and prostitution. Even the police turn to Michael Becker for criminal defense representation when one of their officers gets accused of a crime: NAPSO (Nevada Association of Public Service Officers) is a client of Las Vegas Defense Group, LLC.


 


As a Las Vegas DUI lawyer, Mr. Becker has helped countless clients get charges dismissed, reduced to reckless driving, and avoid drivers license suspensions. Attorney Michael Becker is certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to administer field sobriety tests in connection with roadside DUI investigations.


 


As a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Becker has developed particular expertise in Nevada prostitution law, Nevada battery domestic violence laws and Las Vegas DUI law.


 


Some of Mr. Becker's recent victories at trial include winning a "not guilty" verdict in a Nevada kidnapping case, a "not guilty" verdict in a Nevada battery with a deadly weapon case, and a "not guilty" verdict in a sexual misconduct with a prisoner case.  He also got a mistrial declared in a Nevada sexual assault case.  Read more about Mr. Becker's recent legal victories.

    Michael practices in both Nevada and California, although mainly now in Vegas. He's widely regarded in both places as one of the best criminal trial lawyers, especially in very serious felony cases. He's probably walked away with more "not guilty" verdicts in these cases than any other lawyer I know.
