This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

No one would help us...
My husband and I had this kind of crazy case where essentially a man stole goods from us valued at $30,000.00. All the other attorneys we went to said they could help us but then gave us a ridiculous price quote for a retainer, but Miguel said he could help us at fair price. Most attorneys don't work half as hard as Miguel and his tireless staff. Everyone is young, enthusiastic, and not afraid to take on cases big or small. If you're even thinking that you may need a lawyer, schedule a consultation. The initial consultation is free and really helpful. I'm so glad we have them as our attorneys. I know they'll protect and help our family.

A very personable and professional attorney
My. Palmeiro is a great mentor. I am a senior at UMD and I plan to attend law school next fall. My. Palmeiro invited me to his office so he could give me an overview of how a typical day in the life of an attorney works. He introduced me to all of his staff who were very warm and welcoming. He also gave me very helpful tips on how to study for the LSAT. I would recommend Mr. Palmeiro to anyone who is looking for a very friendly and reliable lawyer!

Great experience!
Miguel and his team were awesome through my entire legal process. I had never had to deal with court proceedings from an accident before and was very nervous. They took care of everything from beginning to end! Kat was especially helpful when I freaked out about having to go to court. She put me at ease and reassured me that they'd do everything they could for me and get the best result possible in the end - which they did!

An A+ Law Firm
I have never worked for a company who cares about their clients as much as The Law Office of Miguel Palmeiro does. I've been here for only two weeks and have learned so much. The amount of enthusiasm shown by the attorneys for what they do is inspiring. I am beyond grateful for this experience. If I ever needed legal help I would without a doubt trust in Miguel and attorneys here to help me through it! A knowledgeable and experienced team in the court they could win any case thrown their way. The team they have supporting them is also full equip to keep clients happy and always in the loop of what is going on with their case. The Law Office of Miguel Palmeiro is an all around A-team!

Top-notch attorneys
Just watched these awesome attorneys in action last week. Not only are they passionate about what they do but they genuinely care about their clients and are clearly working to enhance the justice system. Miguel did a great job explaining the facts and legal issues surrounding the trial. Unlike some attorneys who would have just blown me off as a 1L; he took the time to give me an in- depth analysis of the process and applicable legal framework. Any questions I had he was willing to answer honestly and knowledgeably. More importantly, all of the attorneys from the firm litigated with the utmost professionalism and diligence, enabling them to think quickly on their feet and pinpoint the prosecutor's weak arguments thus countering them persuasively and accurately. It's crystal clear that to these guys, it's not all about the money. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for hard-working attorneys who will fight for them and to whom they can confidently trust. Their ethics and legal abilities conveyed are nothing short of top-notch. Aside from having their client's best interest at heart, they really are a hilarious bunch.
