A native of Northwest Florida, Michael received a Bachelor of Arts in Business/Real Estate from Florida State University, and a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. Before returning to Florida, he practiced law in Washington, D.C., in the areas of real estate and bankruptcy.
He has held a Florida Building Contractor's certificate since 1984, and lectures in the areas of construction law for courses sponsored by the Florida Department of Transportation and the Florida Association of Home Builders. In addition, he is a member of the International Code Council, the Florida Bar Real Property Section and Construction Law Committee, the National Association of Home Builders, and the Building Industry Association of Okaloosa-Walton Counties, Inc.
Practice areas are Construction, Bankruptcy, Real Estate, Environmental & Land Use, Business Law, and Civil Litigation.
Licensed since 1989
You are not likely to find a more experienced, knowledgeable, or committed advocate than Mike Crew. I highly recommend him in the areas of construction and real property litigation. His outstanding reputation among legal peers, clients and the community as a whole is well deserved.
