AMAZING LAWYER!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I made the worst mistake of my life and was scared to death when I got a DUI this past Thanksgiving!! I had no clue who to trust and where to begin. I was referred to Mr. Hayes from a close friend who also used his services in the past and was beyond satisfied as well. I was so worried that I was going to spend another horrible amount of time in jail and was going to lose my license and even worse lose my job. Mr. Hayes was very knowledgeable and I was very surprised as to how charismatic and passionate he was for not only my case but DUIs alone. His staff was amazing and always helpful even though I would bother them with the smallest worries. He got me a VERY good deal and kept the DUI charge off of my record. I would recommend him to anyone that needs representation for a criminal case. Thank you Mr. Hayes!!!

Complete dismissal of all the charges.
"simply the best" amazing results with my case. DUI in north las Vegas dropped to a parking ticket. Plus DMV "dismissal of revocation". The Amazing staff helped me with every single question along the way.

Integrity, value
I retained Dale Hayes to represent me in a civil case and we prevailed. Hiring a good attorney is stressful but once I sat down with Mr. Hayes he put me at ease. So much so that I did not worry about it because he had it all figured out. Mr. Hayes kept me informed along the way and his fee was fair. He is well versed in different areas of law and his integrity and smarts cannot be matched!!!

Dale Saved My Job!
My wife and I got into an argument that got way out of hand. It did not get physical but she started throwing things and couple of glass items broke. The neighbors heard the noise and called the police. My wife grabbed a sharp item that could do some damage at one point and I grabbed her arm to keep her from throwing. We had calmed down by the time the cops arrived but we both told them about my grabbing her arm. We had no idea this would get me arrested. I work at the test site and have a Q clearance any sort of violent conviction would prevent me from keeping my clearance and cost me my career. I hired Dale and his knowledge about the Domestic Violence laws as well as the way the prosecutors operate, got me a result in which all the charges were dismissed. My Q clearance was never at risk. If you find yourself in similar circumstances, you need to hire Dale immediately!

Saved me from prison time EXCELLENT lawyer!
Dale Hayes Jr is the real deal! I came to Dale facing a very serious felony DV charge for some things that weren’t all my fault. From the very start of our talk he informed me of every possible outcome and took the time to answer every question I had. I was blown away with how thorough and helpful he was. Once I hired him I thought the communication would slow down but boy was I wrong! Dale continued to communicate with me and answer each question I had the entire way. Ultimately he got the charges completely dropped! Dale is an amazing attorney and I highly recommend him for anyone facing a DV charge, or DUI or personal injury charge. He is the best attorney I have ever worked with.

Highly knowledgeable attorney and experienced litigator.
Mr. Hayes helped us to rapidly navigate a minefield in reaching a negotiated settlement for our extremely complex civil dispute, under a very short deadline. He tells it like it is and knows how to be aggressive when necessary. Highly recommended.

Knowledgeable, genuine, and one step ahead!
I hired Dale Hayes for a personal litigation case. Mr. Hayes was extremely knowledgeable about the issues at hand and was one step ahead of the opposing counsel. His genuine care and best interest for me will never be forgotten and I truly can’t recommend him enough.

Thankful I hired Dale
When Dale originally first helped me I was looking for a lawyer that wouldn't treat me like dollar signs and would give it their all to defend me. I could have hired any number of lawyers, but I am truly thankful I hired Dale. He really helped me alot.

He's amazing.
Dale is a miracle Lawyer in las Vegas! Me and my family experienced a really bad legal situation and were basically being framed for a crime. He is a lawyer who is kind, dedicated and extremely sharp! He managed to get the charges dismissed before a case was even filed! Highly recommended. He's amazing.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
I never thought I would ever be in the position of needing a defense attorney, ever in life! But here I was...after hours of research I contacted Dale A. Hayes as he had an excellent reputation with all positive reviews online. I contacted him directly late one evening and he was there for me! He made himself available to me by text, email, and phone; late into the evening. I really needed guidance as my wife was just arrested right in front of me. Dale ensured me that everything would work out in our favor. I arranged my wife bail and we met with Attorney DUI Lawyers Las Vegas the next morning and discussed the case. Thank you & God Bless You! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I rarely visit in Las Vegas, though on my last visit after a night of clubbing I got pulled over. A night I will never forget nor regret. Thanks to the DUI team at DUI Lawyers Las Vegas, he was able to dismiss the entire case. Thanks
