Michael Lee Becker

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 and/or dismissals 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. Mr. Becker is also a Life Member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Read more about Mr. Becker's recent legal victories.

  • David Francis Poblete

    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.
