About Me

As a Former Prosecutor (Felony Division Chief) with the Miami-Dade State Attorney and the top peer-rated Miami Beach attorney on LEGALFORCE.COM, Mr. Grieco and his associates have had the opportunity to participate in and/or try hundreds of cases, including, but not limited to, homicides, narcotics offenses, firearms charges, property crimes, white collar offenses, and DUI’s.  He now uses that experience as a criminal (and dui) attorney here in Miami to assist the accused as well as crime victims.  Our firm not only represents a litany of criminal defendants, but we also work as and with corporate counsels for numerous Miami and New York businesses in litigation and transactional matters,  as well as municipal ordinance violation defense/prevention.

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand
    issued in FL, 2008


    Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Michael’s comment: “This reprimand did not involve client representation and simply stemmed from a matter related to the attorney's time as a State Prosecutor.”
