About me

For the last fifteen years, I have had the pleasure to live and work in the Treasure Coast area.  We have always helped people with all types of issues and all walks of life from world famous celebrities to indigent clients in need of help.  I am proud of the local legal community that exists in Vero Beach.  If there is a problem that Menz & Battista can't help you with, I'm sure that we know the local lawyer that can.
