Nevada DUI attorney Michael Becker has 27 years of experience in fighting drunk driving charges and saving our clients’ driver’s licenses. With a reputation among prosecutors for never backing down, Michael can usually achieve very favorable resolutions through negotiation alone. But he is also a seasoned trial attorney and has won several “not guilty” verdicts.
Michael received his J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law. He is also licensed to practice law in California, Colorado and Florida.
Harvard Law School alum Neil Shouse used to prosecute DUI cases as a deputy district attorney. Now he uses that inside knowledge of how “the other side” works to outsmart and outmaneuver the prosecutors at their own game. As a result, Neil can usually get charges for driving under the influence reduced to reckless driving or dropped completely.
Neil is also licensed to practice law in California.
Las Vegas Defense Group attorney Adam Solinger practices DUI defense in Nevada. Adam has a lengthy track record of convincing prosecutors to drop or substantially lessen charges without a trial.

Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Nicholas D. Pitaro uses his experience as a prosecutor to stay one step ahead of the D.A. when fighting to get our clients’ charges reduced or dismissed. Nicholas also served as a law clerk for the Honorable Douglas Smith, and this “backroom” insight informs his strategies for achieving the most favorable resolutions possible for our clients.
