About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

As the sole attorney in my office, I work with each client on a one-on-one basis. Rather than handing your file to a paralegal or assistant, I personally draft each document, prepare the necessary filings, and maintain communication with my clients from the initial consultation to the signing appointment. I stand by my policy that you do not pay in full until you are completely satisfied with my work. All services are charged on a flat-fee basis and are disclosed up front, no surprises. That translates to freedom from phone calls billed by the minute or being nickel and dime'd for copies and faxes.

I only practice in estate planning, asset protection, and business planning, three areas of the law that intersect. Unlike other general practice or multi-discipline attorneys or firms, I devote 100% of my practice to these narrow areas. That means I can stay abreast of changes in the law and new techniques that others may overlook when their attention is elsewhere.

I've helped hundreds of clients with their estate planning over the years. Whether single or married, the young or elderly alike, I can aid you in your advanced planning. Call me for a free consultation and let's discuss your current situation, your plans for the future, and how estate planning and asset protection strategies can improve both.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
Highly recommended. I did my research to find a lawyer to help with our estate needs and chose Mike over lawyers who came recommended to me. I instantly saw his honesty from his website. Everything is explained and detailed without needing to call for basic questions. He is personable, friendly, and down to earth. You can tell he loves his job and takes pride in the work he does. You will not be let down, believe me, I drilled him with questions and he was able to answer them all with a smile on his face!

Amazing experience!
We had been looking for an Estate Planning Lawyer for about a year, and most lawyers were too busy or charged above average. Michael was helpful, patient and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the procedure and helped us get through it with ease.

Recommendation
I was very pleased with Michael's services. My husband had passed away suddenly and I had to get some financial things in order. He was very knowledgeable and very helpful to me, in making the choices I needed that would most benefit me and my family. I would absolutely use him again and would recommend him to anyone that needed those services.

Estate Planning
I hired Michael Cahill to develop an complete estate plan for me including a Last Will & Testament, Financial Power of Attorney, and Health Care Power of Attorney. Michael was very patient with me as I needed to ask many questions and he gave me the time I needed to make my specific decisions. Additionally, Michael clearly educated me on various items I needed to know for my estate planning. I have shared Michael's contact info with my estate executor and heirs so that they can reach out to him as needed. Thank you Michael for making this difficult topic as painless as possible.

Peace of Mind
After my father passed away suddenly, my husband and I quickly learned how important it is to have your affairs in order. We decided to make a family trust. Mike was so kind and explained the best options for us. The whole process was super easy and it gave us the peace of mind we needed. It is very comforting that everthing financially and personally will be taken care of if something should happen to us. Working with Mike was the best decision we have ever made!

Very professional
Michael Cahill recently set up the will and trust for my husband and I. We were very impressed with how professional he was. He explained everything thoroughly in laymen’s terms and did not rush us at all. We had our initial consultation and then went back a second time to review and sign everything. It all went effortlessly. There are lawyers out there that were a bit cheaper but we felt that it was worth a little more to get someone as experienced as Michael.

Great Attorney!
I have 10 years experience working with large and small real estate law firms in Hawaii but needed an estate lawyer in Las Vegas. Michael Cahill was great in explaining different scenarios of setting up our estate. He is detailed and thorough but keeps everything simple and easy to understand.

Excellent attorney, thorough, easy to work with
We are a retired couple and engaged Michael Cahill to update our wills after moving to Nevada. He did a complete estate plan, including wills, a trust, medical directives, and powers of attorney, at a very reasonable price. He clearly explained the requirements of Nevada law, helped us sort through our options, answered all our questions, prepared the legal instruments quickly and thoroughly, and at the end of the process gave us a neatly organized set of documents for our records. He is friendly, courteous, and easy to work with. We couldn’t be more pleased with his services.

Excellent Estate Attorney
My Father passed away and I needed an Estate Attorney in Las Vegas. I did not know any attorneys in Vegas so I went to the internet. I interviewed several attorneys on the phone. When I talked to Michael he was very straight forward, knowledgeable and gave me a price to handle my fathers case. We talked about the case and Michael advised me on how he would proceed throughout the whole process. There was some tricky issues because my father who raised me was legally my "Step-Father". Michael handled all the issues professional and explained how the court would view them. I come from a law enforcement background and I can tell you that it was refreshing to deal with Michale who was Honest, professional and knowledgeable. I Highly Recommend Michael Cahill as a Probate Attorney P.S. Michael handled the case for exactly what he quoted me at the start, incredable.

Excellent Attorney - Excellent Service!!
I was recently diagnosed with cancer and had one of those "I'd better get my life in order" moments. I knew exactly the attorney I wanted to help me with my estate planning because I had already heard great things about Mike Cahill. When I let Mike know what was going on with my health, he immediately made himself available at a convenient time for me and my wife to meet with him. He was very well prepared for our meeting and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Mike has a thorough understanding of the law and was able to easily answer the questions we had. Mike did a fantastic job preparing the documents we needed and provided us with easily understood directions about what we needed to do on our end to get everything in order. Mike also had great follow-up and let us know that he could easily be reached if we had any questions or concerns. Overall, I was very impressed. Mike is an excellent attorney that provides excellent service to his clients. I would happily recommend him to anyone in need of estate planning services.

Will & Living Will
It was a little bit of a challenge to find the door BUT once my wife and I found it, it was all reward. We came not knowing exactly what services we needed. Michael displayed his knowledge by navigating us to the exact services, we lacked. In conversation it seemed complicate and heavy tasked, but with the provided checklist and the over the phone repeated clarifications, my wife & I easily completed this necessary task.

Estate Planning
My wife and I met with Michael and he clearly and patiently explained the process and answered all of our questions. Michael was very knowledgeable, pleasant and polite. I had put this off for a while because I didn't look forward to going through the process. It turned out to be very easy and actually pleasant. I will recommend Michael anytime the subject of Estate Planning comes up.

Nevada Trust and Estate Planning
We recently moved to Nevada from Illinois, and needed to update our trust, wills etc. We gave Michael our list of items we wished to have addrssssed, and he prepared a proposal. In a very short period of time, once we supplied requested documents for Michael to review , we had a follow up meeting, and then a final meeting, where Michael prepared and gave us an EXCELLENT extremely well organized binder with all the information that we reviewed that pertained to our trust and will, and it was presented in a very professional manner.

Excellent job!
My husband and I hired Michael Cahill recently to create our wills and a trust. He was friendly and helpful when he explained the different ways to structure our documents. We were able to consider his advice and quickly reach a decision. He then was fast in completing the job. His staff was very friendly and proactive, making sure we had followup appointments as needed. I highly recommend Mr. Cahill and plan to return to him with any future needs.

Professional and personable
My wife and I went to Michael to set up a family trust. He walked us through the entire process from start to finish. Michael was timely, kind, and knowledgeable. We have a relatively young family and we feel secure knowing that we are prepared for future circumstances thanks to Michael. In previous experiences with attorneys I have felt like a number or just someone's paycheck. Michael has a family feel to his practice and never made us feel like we were a bother for our questions or concerns. Pricing was also reasonable. I would recommend to anyone.
