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.
Client Reviews
Madison M. February 13, 2021
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
166 Questions Answered
Q. I've been buying a house from an individual or contract is listed at the courthouse she's refusing payments
A: You absolutely need an attorney to handle this for you. The contract and real estate law issues you are dealing with are fairly complicated. There is unfortunately no way to give you a direct answer or guide you through the process through here due to the issues involved. You should at least set up a free consultation with a couple of attorneys who handle breach of contract and real estate litigation cases.
Q. Can a contractee void a contract (and not pay) after work is performed because I refuse to comply with "due dilligence"?
A: It sounds like you may very well have a valid cause of action for breach of contract, unjust enrichment and/or quantum meruit. You are most likely owed the value of the work you performed. You should set up a consultation with an attorney who handles breach of contract disputes, present the contracts, and get their opinion as to what rights and options you have under the circumstances.
Q. As a designer, can I write in contract that client is responsible for my lawyer fees if they try to take me to court?
A: Yes, you absolutely can. However, be aware that under Fla. Stat. 57.105(7): "(7) If a contract contains a provision allowing attorney’s fees to a party when he or she is required to take any action to enforce the contract, the court may also allow reasonable attorney’s fees to the other party when that party prevails in any action, whether as plaintiff or defendant, with respect to the contract. This subsection applies to any contract entered into on or after October 1, 1988." Which means that if you put in such a clause and the other party sues you for breaching the contract, they could be entitled to attorney's fees against you. The best advise I can give other than that is to consult with a business attorney who can draft up the contract to your liking.
