Mace J. Yampolsky

Mace J. Yampolsky’s been practicing for over 30 years. I have handled virtually every type of criminal case. I won a case in front of the United States Supreme Court. I was able to get a death sentence reversed, I have represented  several lawyers and Dr’s on DUI cases. None of my lawyer and/or Dr. clients have ever been convicted of a DUI. I also represented a Dr on a sexual assault case and had it dismissed.

I then represented a Dr. that was accused of murder for allegedly casuing a patient overdose that resulted in death.But, with several experts,I was able to show this was not true.I was able to convince the Clark County Coroner to chenge his opinion,which is almost unheard of. Finally I was able to get his murder case dismissed with prejudice,which means the state can never file another murder case based on these facts.

I’ve lectured at many seminars,in Nevada and several other states teaching other laywers how to practice law. I am also very active in the Nevada stae bar the antional association of Criminal Defense lawyers and  the Stae Affliate, the Nevada Attorneys for Criminal Justice, (WhichI helped found)

Also, I am an accomplished musician.. I play the piano and harmonica.. I have performed at many bar functions.I also performed at a wedding with the rock group, April Wine. I have written a musical about law school. It is called ‘the Writs of Spring” It features such songs a ‘the Law School Blues” ,”I Wanna be a punk lawyer” and the Well Hung Jury Bike Gang Theme Song”
