My lawyer
Jason is amazing! Easy to talk too, available to talk with whenever you need advise or have questions regarding your case. Honestly felt like I had a friend I’ve known for years guide me through my case. All I can say is I really appreciate this guy and would go to him for any legal issues.

Domestic Violence
I found Jason Margolis off of this site by reviews written. He certainly lives up to his reputation. I was charged with a DV Battery, being that this was my first offense, I was very scared for what was to come. Jason made it appoint to always be available and straight forward with every answer I needed. He was outstanding with his representation in court. The case was dismissed, I would recommend Jason to anyone.

Stands By His Clients
Jason was appointed to my case. Meaning he never received any payment from myself out of pocket. Unfortunately I ended up with two other cases while he was representing myself on the first one. Jason chose to take on my other two cases pro-bono and was the best representation I could have asked for! Jason stands by his clients and 100% gives his all to help his clients have the opportunity for the best life, as long as that's what they want. I couldn't have imagined I would be appointed such a great attorney, however am so grateful he was who it was!

Superb defense Attorney
I consulted with attorney Margolis while I hired Mace Yampolsky as my lead attorney. My case involved a very complex matter and multiple jurisdictions. Mr. Margolis wrote and edited many of the briefs that were filed in my case. He was a joy to work with alongside Mace Yampolsky and I am so glad I had the opportunity to have both represent me. There is no other law firm in Las Vegas that cares so much about their clients than Yampolsky and Margolis. Not only do they get the desired results, they go above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you Mr. Margolis and Mr. Yampolsky. You both have made my life infinitely better.

Superlative Lawyer and Person
There is no one I have had the pleasure to work with in Las Vegas, and whom I can recommend more highly than Jason Margolis. I was extraordinarily impressed with his ability to quickly size up my situation and get to the heart of the issue with a clarity and accuracy that I wasn't even able to see! My situation found me defending myself against a false charge of fraud. It didn't take him long to see my innocence and then "go to work." His counsel and the resolution were spot on and I am beyond satisfied! To this day, I am grateful for him and for how fortunate I was to find him. There is no one better suited for what he does than Jason. He is honest, direct, very intelligent and yet still has a personal style that put me at ease when I was extraordinarily stressed. He was genuinely concerned for me as a human being; I honestly don't know what more I could have asked for in an attorney.

The Top Dog!
Jason helped me with my traffic ticket. Let me tell you he is very prompt and on top of things. If you want a blunt and reliable attorney Mr. Margolis is the go to. Not all attorneys are as blunt as Jason. When I think of an attorney I need someone to give me 100% truth on whats going on. Jason is not scared of the truth (or anything in that matter). I am very appreciative to have come across Mr. Margolis and will definitely have him on speed dial in case I get caught into other issues. Thank you so much Mr. Margolis!

Represented My Son
To whom it may concern: I am writing this letter of appreciation for outstanding attorney Jason R. Margolis. Jason is a legal professional who is expedient and thorough in his duties as a lawyer. My son David Francis has Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and has the Medtronic paradigm Revel insulin pump. He was not receiving the required medical management and medical protocol therapy delegated for a patient with the insulin pump. Jason drafted and mailed a desperately needed Legal letter to the Medical Director of Prisons in Nevada. This prompted the immediate medical care my son David Francis required to literally save his LIFE! Nothing had been accomplished until Jason got involved and represented my son David. I want to give Jason my highest regard for his outstanding legal advice and representation of my son. He is an asset to The American Bar Association. Sincerely Debra RN Veteran

Attorney Jason Margolis
My attorney Jason Margolis interceded on my behalf regarding a DUI charge. He went to court and with some requirements made of me, got my charge dropped to Lesser offence.
Posted by CJ | November 26, 2014
Misdemeanor Drug Possession
Mr. Margolis helped me tremendously and was able to get my case dismissed. I was always kept in the loop of my case and felt as though there was nothing for me to worry about. Mr. Margolis made me feel as though everything would be taken care of and it was. I would recommend Mr. Margolis to my friends and family and have already done so.

Speeding in a School Zone
Jason handled my traffic citation and managed to enable me to avoid a moving violation without my being required to complete traffic school, some feat given that I was cited for 11-20 mph over the speed limit in a school zone. The fine I paid was significantly lower than the initial bail amount I was ordered to pay. I recommend him without reservation.

Durable Power of Attorney
Following a stroke a little over a year ago I contacted Jason to inquire about a having a Durable Power of Attorney prepared. I was impressed with his attention to detail, his writing ability, and the efficiency with which he executed the document for me. I would recommend him without reservation.
Posted by Daniel Lowden | August 8, 2014
Traffic Citation
Jason handled a traffic citation for me and it was a completely painless experience-the citation was reduced to Illegal Parking, I never needed to make an appearance or complete traffic school, and he answered any questions I had promptly and efficiently. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone with a traffic or criminal issue.

Straight Shooter
Jason was honest with me and let me know what I was facing in upcoming court appearances. He also prepared me for the range of possible outcomes to my case, including the financial obligations I would be subject to if I entered into a particular plea agreement
