As an ex-Community Association President, I've used Michael many times for collections, and also for handling matters regarding unit owner violations of the bylaws. Michael was very speedy and reliable with his response time. I usually received a phone call the next morning if he wasn't available to take my call. He is extremely affordable, and actually credited some of our money we used as a retainer to investigate a case. He is honest, and most Community Association Attorneys are not (from my experience). I actually hired him to just show up to a Master Association meeting with over 50 people present, and Michael stood up while I was being ignored by the other association members, and shouted "Let My Client Speak!". He received a standing ovation, and gained automatic respect. As a Community Association attorney, he is the best, and as a new owner of a Management Company, I expect to use him a lot.

The few months Mr. Bass represented me were signed by uncertainty, mediocrity and intimidation towards me. Until I interviewed 1/2 a dozen of other family lawyers to validate the quality of his work. The answers were: 1) negative feedback from colleagues though body language and 2) "Is He a divorce lawyer?". His works consist of billing too many hours, talk a lot, achieve nothing or very little. Then upon firing him and offered a more than generous final payment for all the damages caused and omissions during representation, he did not like the fact of being out of the party, and began a battery of lawsuits first in a county (he lost all of them including appeals). Then he filed a new lawsuit in another county, which he will not be able to get anything but nuisances to me and he will have to pay fees to the attorney representing him; as I have filed for bankruptcy. He has some investigations performed by The Florida Bar, I guess not for being a good lawyer or displaying good work ethics and integrity. Do you want a similar story like this? I guess not. Consult other attorneys instead

If this system would allow me to place a “minus ten” (-10), I sure would. Unless you’re looking to obtain a HEART ATTACK or start to constantly chew your nails, “ DON'T ” depend on Michael R Bass. His communications skills is extremely poor. Emails were hardly answered and getting a return call is like pulling a tooth from a new born. Above it all, he missed “court appearances”.
Due to his lack of filling time and incompetent, I lost my child and ended up with a judgment that almost put me in jail. After taking matters in my on hands, I came to find out it all could have been done fairly easy and everything could have been solved much sooner instead of wasting money and time (one and half year=18 months) to start all over again. After hiring a new attorney, I now have my son back and my judgment was dropped in less than one (1) month.
Unable to count own your attorney is like swimming in a pawn infested with alligators believing they will protect you.
