Great Lawyer. Would Recommend.
We found Mr. Mike Lee from a referral on Nevada State Bar's website. Mr. Lee responded to our questions promptly and agreed to meet us in person despite COVID concerns. During our consultation, we felt that Mr. Lee was professional and very well versed in his area of expertise. He addressed every single question we had to our fullest satisfaction. After the consultation, it took him no longer than a day to turn around the deliverable. We also felt that his rates are fair and reasonable and would definitely consult him in the future should we require legal representation. He is certainly the best lawyer we've had the fortune to work with.

Highly recommended!
Mike is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help me with a contract for my new business. He even offered legal advice beyond the scope of what I hired him for. I feel a lot more confident moving forward with my new business venture after speaking with him. He's extremely fast and makes you feel as though he appreciates your business and doesn't overcharge. Highly recommended!!

Excellent!!!
After researching attorneys online, we decided to go with Mike Lee to handle a case that involved a dispute over a couple of homes that had been inherited by two family members. It had been unresolved for many years and was quite contentious. Mike was excellent about communicating with us mainly via email (and also a few in-person meetings when needed), throughout the entire process. Any questions we had, were answered very quickly (occasionally even over the weekend). After we initially met him in person, I could tell we were in good hands. He was sharp as a whip and had just the sort of energy you look for in a really good attorney. Our case ended up being settled out of court, MUCH to our satisfaction. I have absolutely NO doubt that the outcome of our case was as favorable as it was, because of Mike Lee. The opposing side's attorneys were simply "out-gunned". We would recommend him to anyone and will keep him in our contacts in case we need his services in the future. All attorneys are not created equal. Mike Lee is the real deal.

Down to Earth
I met Mike through my brother, who's done a lot of work with him, and I'm very glad that he did.He's a no BS kind of man. Clear, concise, and quick. I've talked to a number of attorneys who feel the need to fill up the billable hour reading off their LinkedIn contacts to make it seem like they're the most connected person in the world as they sit in their Better Call Saul office. I didn't have a chance to work with the rest of his team, which is a testament to how much of a straight shooter Mike is. There was none of this, "Oh, lemme let you talk to my junior associate, who's only $10 cheaper than my hourly rate." I'm sincerely appreciative of the clear instructions and next steps. And rest assured this is not satire; I would gladly welcome the opportunity work with Mike again.

Mike did excellent work for me at a reasonable price. He returns all emails within a few hours. He suggested that I do much of the work for small claims court to save me money.

Excellent Lawyer!!!
Mike is a true professional who knows how to get the job done as well as keeping the client’s mind at ease. We wish we had found him much earlier. Before finding Mike, I called around many other offices and there were lots of hoops to jump through to have a chat with an attorney. Then I got Mike’s number and he answered right away. Accessibility is a big deal especially when one is pressed on time. Mike, thank you so much for getting the job done with the least amount of time and with the highest professionalism.

Excellent Attorney
I needed to defend against a frivolous and wrongful claim. Mike was very kind to provide me and my team guidance on the phone as well as meeting with us in short notice. He is very knowledgeable, sharp, and cared what was best for us, not what is best for him. Highly recommended.

Efficient and Friendly Lawyer
Amazingly efficient and friendly! We went to consultation feeling lost, confused and worried about business dispute. Michael Lee was very patient and listened to the whole story without rushing us. He explained what might happen and what will happen in plain language. He wrote a respond letter to the other attorney that very day which made us feel that we are being taken care of. We highly recommend Michael Lee to our friends and family. No wonder he came highly recommended by other lawyers in his field. We feel very fortunate to have him take our case.

Very happy to sit down with Mike
First of all, he was ready to talk to us. He had the agreement in his hands and knew what needs to be revised. He revised the agreement right there in the consultation meeting and gave it to us. He gave us good advises and referrals. Easy going, straight forward and most importantly trustworthy. Definitely worth spending money for what I got.

The best attorney in Las Vegas
I met with Michael in regards to business advice. He was very informative, knowledgeable, and helpful in every aspect of my questions. Needless to say, he gave me useful and important information to move forward with my business. In addition, he also helped me with an operating agreement. Comparing to the last attorney that I worked with, it was like night and day. I thought that all agreements are the same. Boy! I was so wrong! Mike's attention to details made a huge difference. I also felt like I should contact the last attorney and demanded a refund. If you are looking for any types of legal help, please be sure to reach out to Mike Lee. You will not be disappointed!
