Mace was the only attorney to take my call after a short wait. Answered all my questions in great detail. No charge. Very professional and caring. I must have called 8 other attorney's, no one else even returned my call. When you need to talk to someone today. Try Mace Yampolsky.

My husband and I had an unfortunate incident with police due to misunderstanding about car registration and my husband ended up being charged with a dui even though his BAC came back well within the legal limit the Medical Marijuana came back in his system from smoking earlier in the week. Mace worked great with us and helped us plea to a much lesser charge due to our situation and his negotiating skills.

When I found myself in desperate need of an attorney’s help, I tried calling two other law firms. I wasn’t impressed, I didn’t feel they had my best interests in mind. I had to wait a considerable amount of time to talk to the attorneys at both firms. While waiting for a response from one of the firms, I took a chance and called Mace Yampolsky and I am so very glad I did. Theresa answered my call and she put me right through to Mace. The way they greeted me made me feel important. Mace listened to me. He answered all my questions and took the time to explain the process to me so I would know what to expect. Mace and Theresa took the weight off my shoulders and handled everything, they literally calmed all my fears, they gave me peace of mind. When I heard the outcome of my case, tears of joy ran down my face. I cannot thank them enough for all they’ve done for me. I highly recommend the law office of Yampolsky & Margolis to anyone in need of help. I am forever grateful to them.

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.
