Michael is an amazing attorney and former colleague. He has a wealth of knowledge in both civil and criminal law, and I would undoubtedly recommend him to my family and friends.

Very professional , kind and knowledgeable.
Michael was there for me in one of the scariest moments of my life, he never made me feel judged or like I was hopeless. Michael was always at all of my hearings and there was never a time when I had a question he didn't know the answer to. Michael fought for me and was persistent and with the best possible outcome he won me probation and that was something that I never thought would have been a possibility for me. I am very grateful for him and the service and care he provided for me.

Michael Mayoral Cares and Will Fight For You!
I took my DUI case to a jury trail represented by Mr. Mayoral and I was extremely happy with the outcome of the trial. He did a great job cross examining the arresting officer, catching him in his own lies. I was on probation at the time, and after a long intense day in the courtroom the jury found me not guilty! Mr. Mayoral was confident from the beginning, and fought hard for me. Because of Mr. Mayoral I was able to not only avoid jail, but also avoid a violation of my probation! I have recommended him to friends of mine and would definitely hire him if I ever needed him again (knock on wood). Thank you again Mr. Mayoral!

Legal Answers
45 Questions Answered
Q. My daughter was beaten and strangled with a leather belt by x boyfriend infront of her 2 sons all on video .
A: Your daughter needs to go to a police station with the evidence you are talking about and report the crime. They should find probable cause to arrest him, eventually arrest him, and a stay away order will be entered to make it illegal for him to contact your daughter during the pendency of the case. Your daughter can also use the same evidence to petition for an domestic violence injunction (restraining order). It will likely be granted if she goes through all of the proper steps.
Q. Am I able to own a gun in NC if i had a felony arrest in FL that resulted in a plea of nolo contendre and adjud. withhel
A: This is a very good question and it is very important that you figure this out before you possess a firearm in North Caroline. I handle many firearm-related cases and I can tell you that the consequences of being arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm can be severe. You can be charged in state and federal court for the same crime or offense. To answer your question, it appears that North Carolina will not recognize Florida's "withhold of adjudication" and will count that offense as a felony conviction. The relevant NC law is "Article 54A: The Felony Firearms Act, § 14-415.1. Possession of firearms, etc., by felon prohibited" which defines a felony conviction as follows: "The term "conviction" is defined as a final judgment in any case in which felony punishment, or imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, as the case may be, is authorized, without regard to the plea entered or to the sentence imposed." A NC prosecutor can likely successfully argue that, despite the withhold of adjudication, you received a "final judgment" in a case in which "felony punishment... is authorized, without regard to the plea entered (nolo contendere for example) or the sentence imposed" (withhold of adjudication and probation). Your best bet, in my opinion it to attempt to have your firearm rights in North Carolina restored. The applicable NC law is § 14-415.4. Restoration of firearms rights. Look it up and see if you meet the requirements. You can also hire an attorney to do it for you.
Q. My in laws bought us a 325,000$ home my .? Is what rights do I have I’m not on the deed or mortgage
A: By the sound of it, her interest in the house is basically "marital property." Unless a couple has a valid written agreement stating otherwise, marital property in Florida includes all assets and debts either spouse acquires during the marriage. Spousal rights in Florida allow spouses to share marital assets and debts, even if the property or debt is titled only in one spouse's name. In the most basic sense, half of her one-third interest (if it is a 1/3 interest in the property) is yours because the 1/3 interest is marital property, shared equally by the spouses.
