About Me

Princeton, A.B. 1977, Florida State University College of law, J.D. Cum Laude 1986.  Mike was admitted to practice in Florida in 1986, Washington State, Federal Courts for the Middle District of Florida and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and before the United States Supreme Court, Court of Appeals for Veterans’ Claims, Mike is a member of the Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco County Bar Associations and is a member in good standing with the National Organization for Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.  In 1992, after four years as an Assistant State Attorney and 70 or so jury trials (most at the felony level) and two years trying personal injury and disability cases for another firm, Mike began his own practice and founded The Law offices of Mike Murburg, P.A., a firm focusing on disability and injury matters. In 2006 Mike brought on Carol Wilson as shareholder in the firm and both began the Social Security Disability, VA and Railroad Retirement Board self-help website  Both Mike and Carol assist clients with cases involving Social Security Disability, Railroad Retirement Board Disability and VA Disability.


Our main office is located in Tampa, however; we also have offices located in Clearwater, New Port Richey, Hudson/Spring Hill, Dade City and Inverness where we meet our more rural clients by appointment.  Our practice is therefore both local and regional as we most often try cases at the Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Clearwater and Ocala Social Security Offices of Disability Adjudication and Review. We also represent Social Security and RRB claimants nationwide and have tried cases as far south as the island of Puerto Rico and as far north as Bangor, Maine, as well as Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh, New York, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Spokane and Philadelphia, just to mention a few cities among the numerous states to which we actually travel to try cases. That is why we are proud to be a Tampa Bay Law Firm with a national practice.

    I endorse this lawyer. Mike and I have known each other for nearly 30 years; first as opposing counsel, later as co-counsel, and always as friends. Mike is remarkably knowledgeable regarding SSDI and RRB cases, and has a sterling reputation in the legal community. I would not hesitate to refer a friend to him.
