Highly Recommended
Mr. Horvath is professional and dedicated to effective representation of his clients. I would highly recommend anyone facing a criminal charge contact his office. He advocates diligently for his clients to get the best result possible. I consider him one of the top criminal attorneys in Las Vegas, and the only one I would recommend.

Responsive and Empathetic
We recently were involved in a pretty ugly car accident and Michael Horvath and his team were fantastic. They were empathetic to our situation and responsive to our questions. My wife and I had never been in a situation like this so they really gave us piece of mind through the entire process. Would definitely recommend Michael and his team at the Draskovich Law Group.

A Competent Professional that Won My Case and Exceeded My Expectations
I was wrongly accused in a criminal misdemeanor case that could have damaged my reputation and my good standing as a Retired Law Enforcement Professional. A plea-bargain was not an option. On short notice, Mr. Horvath and his team quickly responded to the prosecuting DA and obtained all of the relevant information and evidence. The matter was dismissed in a few short weeks. The services provided were completed within our agreed upon price, and Mr. Horvath took the time to know me as a person and a client. I always felt that he and his staff had my best interests in mind. So if you are looking for results, this is the lawyer for you. Best regards, LTC(Retired) P.J. Webster

professional
I went in with a urgent need to be defended in a short time frame, Michael took care of me, assured me my case was cut and dry and I didn't need to be worried of the false allegations against me. They made it work financially for me and I was able to beat the charges. I would highly recommend Michael as a lawyer to any of my friends who need defense as well as my future possible needs if any. I will absolutely be a repeat customer if need be! I was very appreciative of his help!

I Highly recommend!! A great defense attorney!!
I was referred to Mr. Horvath by another well-known law firm to handle my DUI. This was my first offense ever and I had no idea what to expect. He secured a better outcome than I could have hoped for!! I had lots of moving parts to my case and Mr. Horvath was with me every step of the way. He is very knowledgable and did a phenomenal job handling my case. I never felt alone during the process. He fielded questions, returned phone calls, and was reassuring. He explained the process so there were never any surprises. Additionally, he has an office full of the greatest support staff that are always helpful and professional! Words cannot express my gratitude. If you need a defense attorney Mr. Horvath is your man!! I highly recommend him!

DUI
William Horvath Words can't Express my appreciation to Mike. He not only represented 110%. He got my DUI down lower then a careless driving. I have a CDL, so it was vital that I got it lower from DUI so I could still work. I will recommend Mike to every person I know. Thanks for your services Mike, you are a true professional.

Thank You
Mike did an astounding job handling my case! I always had a solid form of communication with Mike, even on the weekends. Throughout the process, he calmed my nerves with his knowledge as a defense attorney . He gave me the peace of mind needed to stay productive each day throughout my ordeal. It was a pleasure working with Mike and I will definitely be back if I require an attorney down the road.

Excellent Attorney
My daughter was bitten by a dog and we filed a claim against the homeowner through Draskovich Law Group. Michael Horvath personally handled this matter in a professional and timely manner. He was effective in negotiating the best possible settlement so that my daughter will have the funds available to her when she is of age. Mr. Horvath was accessible, courteous and took the time to educate my wife and I regarding any questions we had. I would not hesitate to recommend him to a friend or family member.

Fantastic lawyer
I was referred to Mr. Horvath after my car accident by a friend. I was extremely thankful he took my case and was able to help me out. From the beginning he handled everything for me, setting me up with doctors, making sure the damage to my car was repaired and most importantly making sure I was comfortable with the process. He took his time to explain to me how everything was going to be okay. I must say Michael was extremely professional and handled my case in a very timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer.

I’m grateful for the representation from attorney Michael Horvath. The degree of excellence you can expect from attorney Horvath is professionalism, confidence, and expertise. Attorney Horvath won’t tell you what he thinks you want to hear; he will tell it to you straight forward, honestly, 100% of the time. He is an attorney you can trust. His detailed feedback is reassuring and appreciated as your needs are made a priority.

Great lawyer!
We hired Michael Horvath to represent my brother who was facing some serious charges/ possibility of life sentence. My family was devastated and in a state of panic. We flew in to Vegas and Mr Horvath met with us, then my brother and from there represented him in this case. He was always there to answer our endless questions and many concerns. We made the best choice ever by going with him and the legal team as all the charges were dropped and the case was dismissed. We hope to never need his services again but if ever we did, we would definitely go to him again!

Amazing Lawyer
I was falsely accused of sexual assault two months ago. I was terrified that I would lose my career and spend the rest of my life in prison for a crime I did not commit. But thanks to Mr. Horvath, all the charges have been DROPPED. Mr. Horvath literally saved my life. I am so thankful to have him as my lawyer. I highly recommend him.

Great, Personable Lawyer
I contacted the law office of Turco & Draskovich regarding a traffic matter that my wife had. We worked with attorney Michael Horvath who was able to get her ticketed dismissed. My wife also had a miner car accident that wasn’t her fault and involved my young son. I contacted Mr. Horvath and he immediately advised me of what my wife and I should do. He was able to help us with our case and get it resolved. Mr. Horvath and the office are professional and helpful during these stressful times. I highly recommend them and their services.

A Lawyer Who Will Treat You Like Family
Mike was my friend before he was my attorney. Knowing each other only as friends I had no idea what to expect from him professionally. Mike set the tone right away right away. He said he would take care of my issue, and not to worry, and he followed through 100%, going above and beyond to make sure my issue was handled completely, and the right way. Mike has strong legal skills, but I think the thing that really sets him apart is his ability to get along with and reach people--he has communicative skills that transcend his practice, but at the same time I think it is part of what makes him so good at obtaining favorable results IN his practice. People like him, and it's easy to see why. He will handle your issue and you will enjoy working with him too. Great lawyer. Great guy.
