Amazing work!
Being confused and nervous about my case I consulted, Michelle Medina. She answered all of my questions and concerns. She gave me a sense of comfort which was why I retained her right away. Being in this situation was a stressful process, but every step along the way she was there fighting. Michelle put in so much time and effort. I truly was impressed about her care and work methods to ensure the right thing was done. I got the best possible outcome out of this horrible and stressful situation.Thanks to Michelle, I’m lucky to be at home with my family. Michelle, my family and I are extremely grateful beyond words! Thank you so much!

Can’t Go Wrong w/ Michelle & Baez’ On Your Side
I was a paralegal in NYC many years and saw how much difference the right (& sometimes wrong) ‘of counsel ‘ can make in an outcome. Not having any experience in FL, when a summons came my way, was devastated. Called a law firm in CA (whom saved me before.) Their staff highly recommended Michelle & Baez, thank God. They patiently helped me, accepted my on payments when I was able to make them. And I have NO complaints (which is rare for me:) When things aren’t going our way, we need a tough adversary to fight for us. And, Ms. Medina’s one tough cookie for her clientele. I promise you that.

Michelle Medina rating
I decided to hire attorney Medina because, the person in jail had violated probation, committed the same charge he originally was arrested for. There seemed to be no hope. I knew Jose Baez had got alot of people good results in serious cases. I researched lawyers in Miami and found her. From day 1 she was aggressive and honest about the situation and how she could help. She is very down to earth and nice in person. She helped get his pending charge dropped.. and he was put back on probation. The person was facing up to 10 years in state prison if he violated again, that's counting all his priors. This was a serious situation and I can't even believe he's out of jail. Ms. Medina helped save him. I'm always going to appreciate and respect her, there are no words that can be enough to show her gratitude. She is a great attorney. Thanks
