About me

Super Lawyer, AVVO Client Choice Award, Nevada Legal Elite, AV Rated


Mike has more than eleven awards for excellence as an attorney.  Notably, all of these awards are peer nominated and awarded.  He is a Preeminent Peer Rated AV Rated Attorney by Martindale Hubbell. Similarly, he has been recognized by Super Lawyers, Nevada Business Magazine, Avvo, and the Better Business Bureau for his distinction in the legal field.  He has never accepted any award that required payment for recognition ("Top 40 Under 40", etc.).  In fact, almost 100% of Mike's cases come by way of referral from former clients and lawyers in the community.  Often, Mike is retained by other lawyers to assist them with their cases. 


Mike is dedicated to providing the highest quality legal services available to the Las Vegas community. Michael B. Lee, P.C. is a premier law firm that practices in all areas of litigation, personal injury, criminal defense, and appeals, working to achieve results that exceed expectations.  We handle complex and sophisticated matters that include: catastrophic personal injury; business; real estate; landlord-tenant; commercial/consumer cases; immigration-deportation; and criminal defense cases. We pride ourselves on providing excellent legal services to our clients with the goal to have each client refer us with their highest personal recommendation.


We practice law with integrity, honesty and a drive to win, priding ourselves on leading our clients through litigation as their advocate, counselor, and champion. Since the inception of our firm, we have enhanced existing relationships and developed referrals by capitalizing on the following five “key” attributes:
