Michael D. Fluke

About Me

Michael D. Fluke has committed his career to helping people in need.  After nine plus years at the public defender's office, he left to handle a high profile first degree murder case in Tampa.  Ultimately, the client ended up avoiding the death penalty and life in prison and received a 15 year sentence.  Michael has been involved in the defense of 14 homicide cases and currently focuses on serious felony and complex family law cases.  Michael is a third genreation law school graduate.  Michael is married and has two children.  When not working or spending time with his family, (which is most of the time), he enjoys golfing, softball and cheering on his beloved Boston sports teams.

  • Brooke Victoria Elvington

    Not only do I endorse this lawyer, I would personally retain him if I found myself in need. Michael has a stellar reputation in the community, and is regarded as an attorney who understands the law, acts with professionalism, thinks out of the box, and goes above and beyond for his clients.

  • Louis Christopher Debari

    As as state prosecutor I have had many cases in which Mr. Fluke was defense counsel. He is one of the sharpest, most effective attorneys I have ever met.
