About Me

Attorney Michael Vaghaiwalla grew up in the Central Florida area and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Legal Studies from the University of Central Florida.  Thereafter, Mr. Vaghaiwalla began his legal career working as a paralegal with a prominent firm in Orlando handling medical malpractice, wrongful death, general negligence, and product liability cases.   Mr. Vaghaiwalla’s success as a paralegal furthered his desire to help people and led him to attend law school.


 Mr. Vaghaiwalla spent a significant portion of his time in law school giving back to the community by donating his time and efforts to Florida State’s Public Interest Law Center where he helped medically fragile children obtain access to healthcare.  As a result of his work in the Public Interest Law Center, Mr. Vaghaiwalla received a certificate of distinguished pro bono accomplishment.  Mr. Vaghaiwalla continues to actively pursue opportunities to give back to the community.Mr. Vaghaiwalla earned his Juris Doctor from The Florida State University College of Law.  Based on his outstanding legal research and writing skills, Mr. Vaghaiwalla was selected to research and draft a significant section of an Amicus Brief that was filed with the United States Supreme Court on a historic public interest issue.  Mr. Vaghaiwalla also wrote a public interest article that was published by the Orlando Sentinel that received national recognition from Kaiser Health News.


Mr. Vaghaiwalla now turns his practice to advocating for individuals in all spectrums of family law.  Mr. Vaghaiwalla is a member of the Florida Bar, the Orange County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Central Florida Family Law Inns of Court, and the Florida Justice Association.  Mr. Vaghaiwalla is licensed to practice in all Florida trial courts.
