5.0 stars 64 totalReview Michael Mackhanlall
Posted by Eric
I’ve had extensive experience with attorneys in the past, transactional attorneys, (corporate, contract attorneys) litigation attorney’s, family law (divorce, child custody) even criminal defense lawyers when my son got into some trouble. I never thought it would happen to me, but I found myself in the fight of my life looking at literally DECADES in prison if I was convicted and I never served more than a day in jail! SCARED TO DEATH, I consulted with 5 criminal defense attorneys leaving with reservations every time, scare tactics, non-chalet attitudes, exorbitant retainers, vaguely answered questions, some seeming more interested in how I was paying vs the specifics of my case. I wasn’t sure what to do! I spent hours researching, networking, trying to find the right attorney that was knowledgeable, tenacious, with a proven track record that would fight for me; then I found attorney Michael T. Mackhanlall. First, his AVVO rating was a perfect 10 out of 10. At the time he had over 58 reviews from his clients on AVVO and they were all 5 STAR REVIEWS! When reading his client reviews, some adjectives used to describe Michael T Mackhanlall are professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, honest, hard-working, diligent, tenacious, razor-sharp, efficient, effective, attentive, noble, comforting, insightful, eloquent, and highly respected in the legal community. He even had over 40 attorney endorsements at the time! I researched practically every criminal defense lawyer in Orlando and encountered many criminal defense attorneys with decades more experience than Mr. Mackhanlall, but with less than 1/10 of the accolades he’s received from clients and attorneys alike in just a few years of practice! I read his bio and found he served in the Airforce and was chosen for Airman of the year in 2005; to put that into perspective there were over 330,00 active duty airman in 2014; that’s a big deal! I thought Mike Mackhanlall was too good to be true! But after meeting with Mike, I knew like many others he was the one, he would definitely fight for me, I felt all the accolades were true and Mike Mackhanlall proved it many times during the fight of my life and he was by my side every step of the way! He explained what happened to me from a legal perspective, he told me what would happen in the future, what the opposition was aiming for, he articulated a plan of action and to top it off his fees were very reasonable and cost effective for such a knowledgeable lawyer! When I left his office I slept all night for the first time in months! He predicted everything that eventually happened, Mike always made me feel like my case was top priority, he answered my calls and emails promptly, he was proactive and would just pop up with useful tidbits of information, updates, reminders HE CONTACTED ME WITHOUT ASKING MANY TIMES AND IN MY EXPERIENCE LAWYERS RARELY ARE SO PROACTIVE! I Felt like he was fighting for me as hard as he would fight for himself! The most impressive part was how he argued my case using legal precedents, the opposition having an ah-ha moment realizing “oh we can’t do that” then Mike took over & it seemed like the opposition worked for him; he ran over them like a MACK TRUCK LOL! I received the best outcome for my situation and I’m convinced without Mike fighting for me I would be in a different place right now! If I could turn back the clock I would have used Mike Mackhanlall for my separation, divorce and child custody cases, I’m sure the outcome would have been better with Mack Law P.A on my side! THANKS MIKE!

When I first approached Mr Mackhanlall to discuss my situation of divorce. He listened to me attentively. He crafted a strategy to follow that would protect my children's future education, additionally my rights as a Father. He used case law interpretations that would get the verbal nod from the Judge each and every time. During the most difficult times, he reassured me that I would soon be divorced. His professionalism, polite demeanor was well appreciated. He kept me informed thru out the whole process. He did not ignore or forget about me like the past experiences I've had with big name Lawyers. It didn't bother him to go over any question I had over the phone. Where other Lawyers have failed, Mr Mackhanlall has succeeded in getting me my divorce. If your looking for the needle in the haystack, here it is! Far beyond an excellent rating. Knowledgeable, aggressive and compassionate. He will be my Lawyer for life. With no hesitation I will call upon him for future Legal help If needed.

I was in a deranged and burdensome situation with the wife. Her very creative shenanigans and most unbelievable allegations you have ever heard of in your life, destroyed my credibility at work and with friends, family and coworker. I mean she would cry to anyone and make you feel that she is telling the truth. The marriage was cursed and plague from the very start, but I also have children involved and married for 14 years. I wanted a divorce. Michael was recommended highly through a friend and then I researched him. Michael has the qualities I was looking for, tenacious, eloquent, experienced and his qualification in the military with a can do attitude. I need someone with a great track record as a defense attorney. I contacted Michael and he decided to take my case and also understood what was at stake. The battle that happen in this divorce case was epic. The other side or (Dark Side) wanted everything under the sun. The dark side wanted most of my earnings and all my assets. Then Michael step in and started firing off his rebuttals. Michael’s shape insight and knowledge made him a dangerous asset. I was ecstatic that Mike was on my side. Michael was on point and precise, he came back a reduction in alimony, child support and other miscellaneous stuff. Michael also devises a plan that would cycle out of the system in a short time. The dark side was stunned and this went on for a while. But finally the dark side submitted and Michael’s demands. Thank god that this process is over now. I can finally close this chapter of my life and create a new chapter. Michael is truth a Jedi Knight, He stands on the side of truth, justice and the American way, He is and always will be my savior and my friend.

I hired Mike after a referral from a friend of mine. I had a custody case with my ex, and Mike was able to resolve my case on great terms. He naviagted the case throughout the process and kept it moving. I also got a response by phone email or text that same day. I never once was uninformed about my case. I highly recommend him for your case. And he saved me a ton of money. I appreciate the work he has done for me. What he told me during the consultation is exactly whaat he did

There are not enough words to express the amount of gratitude that I have to Michael for winning my case. Michael won FULL CUSTODY of my son for me in only 5 weeks! He is my HERO :-)
I had two other attorneys prior to finding Michael. I really wish I had found him first. Like many other people I originally had hired a very well known attorney here in town who did absolutely nothing for me and wasted eight months of my time. I was determined in finding the right attorney for me and I really did my homework.... I actually read all 51 reviews at the time on Avvo on Michael prior to meeting him. After we met I knew he was the one for me and I am so glad that I hired him. Michael is very brilliant, very dedicated, determined, and focused in winning his case. I wish all the other attorneys would be like him. He was always easy to get a hold of. Michael returned emails and calls right away unlike my previous attorney. He pays attention to details and in order to be a good attorney you have to be on top of things and he definitely is! I highly recommend Michael to anyone who is considering him. Michael goes to court very prepared and determined to WIN!!! I am forever grateful to him.....

I used Mike for a small criminal case marijuana case, and my wife tried to use it against me in my divorce. I had a divorce attorney and was unhappy with him. I hired mike for my divorce case and he did both cases for me. I couldnt be happier with the result in both cases. The divorce case was complicated and lots of going in and out of court. I can attest for Mike's ability in court first hand.

I had a crazy situation happen when i was out in my family, and was charged with some serious offenses. I am not a US citizen and was terrified of having a conviction and getting deported. Mike kept in constant contact with me, fully investigated the situation and was able to get my case dropped! I couldnt be happier. What was remarkable is the contact he kept and that i felt he held my hand every step of the way during this stressful time and took immediate action early on

I hired Mike to change the ownership of a timeshare. He answered my questions clearly and promptly, was courteous and got the job done smoothly, at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend him.

Mike handled my VERY messy divorce after I went through a protracted 3 year war with my ex wife and her attorneys trying to make money off of me. I went through five attorneys and finally found Michael on AVVO after interviewing several attorneys. I am very happy with the result, and Mike is definitely a fighter. He fought for me and always kept pushing the case so it didnt drag out any longer. I am happy with the result, and I have hired expensive lawyers, cheap attrneys, and everyone in between, after all of them I can tell you Mike was the best attorney I have come across. I recommend him to anyone dealing with problems in the court system
