I recommend Jason Margolis! Jason made it a point to always be available and straight forward with every answer I needed. He was outstanding with his representation in court and the case was dismissed. I’m grateful for Jason’s expertise and knowledge of the law.

I was referred to Mr. Margolis not knowing his reputation or having had any experience with his firm. When I saw him in action in the courtroom I knew I was in good hands and made the right choice. Mr. Margolis was compitent, passionate and delivered good results. I was very happy and greatful for all he did for me. Thank you Jason Margolis!

Helping NV Residents for over 30 years!

Mace Yampolsky and Associates have been providing legal services to those in need in the Las Vegas Area since 1986. We have tried virtually every type of serious criminal matter, having completed over 200 jury trials, which include numerous murder defense cases. We are criminal defense attorneys. We do DUIs and Domestic violence cases on a regular basis. We believe that each case, no matter how big or how small needs to be handled properly. Sometimes good people do stupid things. We have helped people in Henderson, North Las Vegas, Spring Valley, Summerlin, and all through Southern Nevada, winning several acquittals. Some of our many successes include: obtaining three murder acquittals; a dismissal of a capital murder case on a procedural issue; an acquittal in the nationally recognized "Computer Gang" case; and successfully arguing before the United States Supreme Court in Nevada v. Riggins (1992), a death penalty case.  In that case, Riggins' conviction was reversed and remanded for a new trial. Mr. Yampolsky literally saved the life of his client, David Riggins. We have many clients with drug defense cases, State and Federal, Possession, sales, trafficking, and huge drug conspiracy cases.  We also have cases involving the date rape drug. We have many clients in drug courts. We were able to suppress 66 lbs of Marijuana in a federal case with resulted in a dismissal when my client was facing 10 years in prison. We have also helped many people with mental illness, Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder.

Mr. Yampolsky was retained by a doctor that was charged with murder for allegedly preserving medication that led to an overdose. After exhaustive research and obtaining many expert reports that were submitted to the District Attorney’s office, we were able to convince the coroner’s office to change its opinion regarding the cause of death and get the case dismissed with prejudice. We have helped many professionals with all types of legal problems. We also defend people involved in sex crimes, crimes against children, Sexual assault, lewdness with a minor, statutory rape and statutory sexual seduction, not to mention pandering and sex trafficking cases.
