    Mr Maddux and his team are awesome! My family and I were blessed to have found someone with his experience and knowledge to handle our situation. He kept us informed of every step and what to expect. His professionalism and experience really made the difference in the outcome of our case. I refer all my friends and family to him.

    • I do not recommend Michael Maddux.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.

    I hired this firm last year, and after 4 months just sitting on my case I had to let them go. I can't speak for everyone else, but with respect to my experienced- it wasn't good. This firm didn't look out for my best interest. In fact, the paralegal and the rookie lawyer for this firm told me to take a plea deal when clearly I'm innocent. Although I wasted my money for hiring this firm, I'm not mad at all because the people who work for this firm showed their true colors. VOLUME LAW FIRM = so so service. Firing this firm was the most liberating experienced I had thus far.

      Lawyer Comment:

      First let me say, I hate that you are feeling disappointed at a multitude of levels. One of our goals is to help people feel cared for and nurtured through tough experiences like being accused of a crime. We know innocent people get charged all the time and that is why we do false arrest law suits against law enforcement. We know you hired a new attorney who obtained an excellent result - a not guilty via jury trial. We also were prepared to pursue a trial on your behalf. You decided to go to trial with a different attorney and I am very glad the results you sought were obtained. If you ever wanted to discuss your situation I would be happy to talk about it. In this forum, I would just point out that when people believe they are not guilty, engaging the criminal justice process with steps like witness interviews and discussing plea offers as lawyers must do with their clients, can seem like delay. Unfortunately, not all juries find client's innocent even when the facts demonstrate innocence. The risks of trial must be thoroughly analyzed and discussed for proper representation. Perhaps, we spent too much time warning you of risks causing you to feel like all we wanted was a plea. I would certainly accept that criticism. Ultimately, I wish you, as I do all our clients, the best in all facets of your life.

    Michael Maddux and his staff are a professional team dedicated to their clients and I highly recommend them! What makes Michael unique in the industry is that he really cares about his clients and their families. His value far outweighs his professional representation in a specific case; the strategy he developed for us was long-term, personal, life changing. In our cases Michael provided services and, more importantly, family and emotional support during very stressful periods that was well beyond the scope of the engagements. He and his staff are excellent communicators and their follow-through is admirable. If you are in need of the services Michael Maddux firm provides, look no further. I am happy to personally refer the firm.

    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I have dealt with many attorneys in the past. Many attorneys to chose to nickel and dime a client! Mr. Maddox is not one of those attorney's. He has the know how and experience do deal with highly involved cases, as mine! Mr. Maddox knows how to take care of a case before it takes off! (putting out fires)! He is known by all assistant district attorneys for the state as a attorney that is willing to fight all the way, and because of that they are willing to take him seriously! I would always use Mr. Maddox for ALL my needs!! He will get the job DONE!!!!!!!!

    People normally hear " You cannot trust a lawyer." It becomes really hard when you have to balance a lawyers performance, reliability and the time to aquire one when stuff hits the fan. Luckily, I had the time to interview six different, well-known lawyers in the tampa area. Michael Maddux came out on top when I sought after someone to represent me. He has been very loyal, he listens attentively and works strategically to get the best outcome for his client. I was not another case in his file or another dollar in his bank. The entire Maddux firm worked as a team to help me through my case both objectively and emotionally. Working with Maddux and his team did not feel like it was methodical, but more like "strategic impromptu." The reason has to be that the Michael Maddux firm knows that no two or three clients are the same. Case in point - I was looking at nine felonies, from which I was looking at easily 4 - 5 years in prison on 6 of them. Prison time was not an option for me as I just kicked off my career and have huge family obligations. The Michael Maddux firm and I settled with 50 community service hours, an 8 hr anger management class (completed in a couple weeks), 24 months probation and reduced my felonies to just four, which after my probation period I can seal (never show up on public searchs, job criminal background checks, etc). I plan to complete the probation in half the time, which was also agreed upon. I could go on and on about how satisfied I am but, will shorten it with one last comment. No matter what situation your in, whether your looking for a breath of fresh air or a glimpse of light in the dark, let an expert, a friend, a counselor be your guide. Let Michael Maddux represent you.

    • I recommend Michael Maddux.

    I would like to acknowledge the firm of Michael P. Maddux being a firm willing to take on cases that are not just legitimate, but cases that can be hard and involving much work on the part of the firm... Understanding that all the information went through Mr. Maddux and ultimately was his decision to be made; i understand i was declined representation only because there was a conflict of interest regarding prior involved parties.....
    The help of the paralegal in working with me to properly present vital information about my case was very helpful. It is my understanding, though my case is one that will take an aggressive, dedicated atty, Mr. Maddux was working toward doing so until the conflict of interest was noted... i was also referred to another atty by the Maddux firm....
    I appreciate their responsiveness and trying to help me preceed further....

    • I recommend Michael Maddux.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Both Mike and his paralegal (Jessica) have been awesome and are everything you would want when hiring a lawyer. They are most definitely in the right profession. I'm not sure many attorney's and their team would take as much time with their clients as they did with me. Most importantly, they both displayed a true interest in the lives of their clients. I felt throughout my entire case that they genuinely cared for my well being and had my best interest at heart, which just makes the world of a difference when going through something that could effect your life as much as my case could have mine. Can't say enough good things about Mike and his team :))
