Review Michael Demayo

About Me

I opened the Law Offices of Michael A. DeMayo, L.L.P. over 20 years ago with a very simple and straightforward objective and goal, which was to provide the best legal service and results while still treating each and every client as an important, special, and unique individual. Also, understanding that every case is different and everyone may have a different objective in the resolution of a personal injury or wrongful death case.  "Put the clients' interests first, and everything else will follow" is and always will be our core Mission Statement. I beleive it is this level of dedication and commitment to our clients that has allowed us to grow into a team of almost 100 legal professionals strong with five offices in two states. In addition, we are very proud of the fact that we have either settled or obtained verdicts of a combined amount in the last 20 years of over  $500,000,000.00!  Our clients are our biggest supporters and advocates for our continued track record of success.

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Reprimand

    Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Michael’s comment: “Our office has been attacked by competitors who envy our success and track record. Our superior marketing efforts which are cutting edge generate interest. Several complaints have been successfully challenged, but not removed from our profile. Michael A. DeMayo has an perfect AV rating of 5.0 which accords him the highest ranking for Ethics and Professionalism. Our combined settlements and verdicts of over $500,000,000.00 (Half a Billion Dollars) over the last 20 years is proof of our skill.”

    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Michael’s comment: “Prior discipline was a result of Advertising and disclaimer errors in Marketing my law firm. Complaint were made by anaomous competeing attorneys. I have been awarded the highest rating by Martindale-Hubbell - an AV rating - and possess a perfect 5.0 score for both Ethics and Professionalism. We have represented over 45,000 clients who are very pleased with the results, customer service, and professionalism. See our over 112 Client reviews on the Internet!”
