Mike H. T. Nguyen, Esq.

Managing Attorney

Mike H. T. Nguyen is the managing attorney of Nguyen & Associates Law Firm, where he oversees the firm’s day-to-day business operations and litigation department. He relocated to Las Vegas after graduating from law school in 2010 and has since made this vibrant city his home.

Throughout his career, Mike has achieved numerous accomplishments, showcasing his legal prowess and dedication to his clients. Notably, at the age of 27, he successfully secured a verdict for a client in a complex contract trial, taking on a case that had been declined by other firms.

At just 28, Mike made an indelible mark by arguing before the Nevada Supreme Court, en banc (heard by all 7 Justices), and winning a unanimous decision on an issue of first impression, establishing himself as one of Nevada’s youngest attorneys to achieve such a feat. His influence extends beyond the courtroom, with the ruling now being taught at Boyd Law School.

As an experienced litigator, Mike has tried numerous cases to verdict, resulting in substantial financial recoveries for his clients. His dedication to fighting for the rights of injured victims is evident in his unwavering commitment to seeking justice.

Mike graduated with honors from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Sociology. He also received a Doctor of Law (J.D.) degree with the highest grade in Federal Income Tax in his class from the Drake University Law School. While in law school, Mike was a member and editor of the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law.

Mike was admitted to the Nevada Bar in 2010 and was also admitted to the United States District Court for the District of Nevada that same year. He has earned numerous distinguished awards both nationally and locally in the field of law.

Beyond his legal achievements, Mike is actively involved in the community, investing both his time and resources for its betterment. He began serving as Chairman of the Vietnamese Community of Las Vegas organization in 2015, organizing community events that brought many people together. In 2021, he provided Covid vaccines at the Nguyen & Associates Law Firm for free to support the community during the pandemic.

In 2016, Mike acquired a commercial building, establishing it as Nguyen & Associates’ permanent home, solidifying the firm’s presence in the city. In 2019, he successfully negotiated the purchase of the Viet My Services Center, and in 2022, transformed it into Nguyen & Associates Chinatown location, expanding legal access to the community.

Mike’s impressive journey is characterized by his passion for his work and his commitment to the community. His legal accomplishments, combined with his contributions to society, exemplify a life dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of others.

Mike personally meets with each of his clients and takes the time to attentively listen to their unique stories. Instead of limiting consultations to a strict 15 or 30 minutes, he encourages his clients to thoroughly present their cases. Mike goes above and beyond, often scheduling consultations on weekends and dedicating as long as 4 hours per consultation. He recognizes the significance of every case and treats their fight as his own, relentlessly striving to secure the best possible compensation for them.

Mike rarely finds any free time, but when he does, he indulges in his passions for self-improvement by listening to podcasts and researching new topics in the tech world. Among his fascinations, artificial intelligence (“AI”) takes center stage, and he ardently believes in harnessing technology to uplift humanity. Gradually, he has been integrating AI into his practice to maximize efficiency and productivity. Moreover, he cherishes the tranquility of meditation, seizing every opportunity to meditate and rejuvenate his mind.
