Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I never gave up on a client even after he had given up and won an acquittal after he had lost all hope of exoneration and freedom. I represented someone pro bono who could not afford to pay for legal fees.

How did you build a successful practice?
I built relationships with fellow defense attorneys as well as judges and prosecutors in order avail myself to a wide variety of professional opportunities. I showed dedication, heart and commitment to my clients.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
They should look for an honest person that cares about them and the outcome of their case.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
An attorney with a solid reputation in the community in which he or she practices will have an easier time negotiating a favorable resolution of your case.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
The more relevant and accurate information your provide, the more thorough analysis I can give of the likely outcome of your case. Although I cannot make promises or guarantees, with over twenty years experience I can generally form a reasonable opinion of which direction the case is likely to go.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
I can generally ask an efficient series of questions to obtain the relevant information needed to assess your case, e.g. How did you come in contact with the police? Did you make a statement? Did you consent to a search? Were there witnesses to the event in question?

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
What sets me apart is my extensive jury trial experience and record of consistently winning acquittals for my clients.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Helping people without judgment in their greatest time of need.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Avid sports fan, animal lover, reader, traveler.

Are you involved in your community?
I previously participated in a Volunteers in Parole program to mentor juvenile offenders previously adjudicated of the most serious crimes as they integrate back into the community after serving extended periods of time at juvenile detention facilities. I also participated in a mentor program for UNLV law students and have recently mentored a college graduate who plans to attend law school in the fall.

  • Criminal Defense | Client was charged with five counts of rape by two separate child accusers where our client faced 175 years to life in Nevada State Prison. During trial, Michael Becker along with attorney Daniel Page questioned the credibility of the accusers as well as the sheriff's deputy on the case. After the week-long trial, the jury deliberated for only two hours before acquitting the defendant. | NOT GUILTY VERDICT ON ALL FIVE COUNTS. Criminal Defense | Clients were charged with a felony charge of "prohibited person in possession of a firearm" and misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and paraphernalia possession. Michael Becker persuaded the D.A. to drop the felony as well as the marijuana charges. Clients just had to pay a small fine. | FELONY AND MISDEMEANOR CHARGES DISMISSED. Criminal Defense | Client went to trial on charges of the Nevada crime of battery with a deadly weapon and the Nevada crime of battery with substantial bodily harm. Las Vegas Defense Group argued to the jury that our client was not the aggressor in the altercation. | NOT GUILTY VERDICT ON BOTH FELONY COUNTS Criminal Defense | Client went to trial for allegedly conspiring to commit the Nevada crime of kidnapping, which carries a possible life sentence.
