    I can't say enough good things about Michael. He helped me through what was certainly one of the worst times of my life. He was honest, caring, non-judgmental and realistic. Aside from his skills as a criminal defense attorney, he is one of the most genuine, caring persons I have ever met. He fought very hard and advocated for me with the federal prosecutor. We agreed after much consideration to a plea and he proffered an excellent plea agreement. He guided me through cooperation with the Federal agents.
    My outcome could not have been better as I received 2 years probation, no fines and no restitution. I will forever be indebted to him as I rebuild my life and career.

  • Hands down, the best attorney in Tampa!

    My daughter landed herself in some hot water with the law. We discussed her situation and set out to minimize the damage to her permanent record. When you are trying to help a loved one, it's hard to just "hand over" their well being to an attorney with hope as your only comfort. When I met Michael he came across as an attorney that really wanted to help. Michael is direct, detailed, and focused on your issue. He took the time to work up a plan of action and he stayed on top of every aspect of our case. I have to say that Michael did a fantastic job representing us in court with very desirable results. If ever we need an attorney in the future, we will hire Michael for representation. Thanks for everything!

    Caitlin Costa, One of the attorneys in this office is just Awesome ! I live out of state and had a 25 year old warrant from Fl that I knew nothing about until I got pulled over for a seat belt violation. She and her team worked very hard and got these charges dropped without me having to return to Tampa. If you need legal assistance, get Caitlin and her team on your side immediately. They will do the job you hired them to do.

  • Best Attorney I never want to have to use again

    Michael Maddux has been such a Godsend to our family. He represented our son at a time when we thought there was no hope and he brought us through it with the outcome being what we could've only hoped and prayed for.

    Michael kept us up to date and answered my many questions with such knowledge and expertise.

    It was a child pornography case where my son was facing up to 40 years in prison, he ended up with 5 years probation with a withhold adjudication which is huge in case like this. After a few years my son may actually have his life back.

    I highly recommend Michael Maddux.

    Mr Maddux and his team are awesome! My family and I were blessed to have found someone with his experience and knowledge to handle our situation. He kept us informed of every step and what to expect. His professionalism and experience really made the difference in the outcome of our case. I refer all my friends and family to him.

    I hired this firm last year, and after 4 months just sitting on my case I had to let them go. I can't speak for everyone else, but with respect to my experienced- it wasn't good. This firm didn't look out for my best interest. In fact, the paralegal and the rookie lawyer for this firm told me to take a plea deal when clearly I'm innocent. Although I wasted my money for hiring this firm, I'm not mad at all because the people who work for this firm showed their true colors. VOLUME LAW FIRM = so so service. Firing this firm was the most liberating experienced I had thus far.

    Michael P Maddux’s response: “First let me say, I hate that you are feeling disappointed at a multitude of levels. One of our goals is to help people feel cared for and nurtured through tough experiences like being accused of a crime. We know innocent people get charged all the time and that is why we do false arrest law suits against law enforcement. We know you hired a new attorney who obtained an excellent result - a not guilty via jury trial. We also were prepared to pursue a trial on your behalf. You decided to go to trial with a different attorney and I am very glad the results you sought were obtained. If you ever wanted to discuss your situation I would be happy to talk about it. In this forum, I would just point out that when people believe they are not guilty, engaging the criminal justice process with steps like witness interviews and discussing plea offers as lawyers must do with their clients, can seem like delay. Unfortunately, not all juries find client's innocent even when the facts demonstrate innocence. The risks of trial must be thoroughly analyzed and discussed for proper representation. Perhaps, we spent too much time warning you of risks causing you to feel like all we wanted was a plea. I would certainly accept that criticism. Ultimately, I wish you, as I do all our clients, the best in all facets of your life.”

    Michael Maddux and his staff are a professional team dedicated to their clients and I highly recommend them! What makes Michael unique in the industry is that he really cares about his clients and their families. His value far outweighs his professional representation in a specific case; the strategy he developed for us was long-term, personal, life changing. In our cases Michael provided services and, more importantly, family and emotional support during very stressful periods that was well beyond the scope of the engagements. He and his staff are excellent communicators and their follow-through is admirable. If you are in need of the services Michael Maddux firm provides, look no further. I am happy to personally refer the firm.

    I have dealt with many attorneys in the past. Many attorneys to chose to nickel and dime a client! Mr. Maddox is not one of those attorney's. He has the know how and experience do deal with highly involved cases, as mine! Mr. Maddox knows how to take care of a case before it takes off! (putting out fires)! He is known by all assistant district attorneys for the state as a attorney that is willing to fight all the way, and because of that they are willing to take him seriously! I would always use Mr. Maddox for ALL my needs!! He will get the job DONE!!!!!!!!

    People normally hear " You cannot trust a lawyer." It becomes really hard when you have to balance a lawyers performance, reliability and the time to aquire one when stuff hits the fan. Luckily, I had the time to interview six different, well-known lawyers in the tampa area. Michael Maddux came out on top when I sought after someone to represent me. He has been very loyal, he listens attentively and works strategically to get the best outcome for his client. I was not another case in his file or another dollar in his bank. The entire Maddux firm worked as a team to help me through my case both objectively and emotionally. Working with Maddux and his team did not feel like it was methodical, but more like "strategic impromptu." The reason has to be that the Michael Maddux firm knows that no two or three clients are the same. Case in point - I was looking at nine felonies, from which I was looking at easily 4 - 5 years in prison on 6 of them. Prison time was not an option for me as I just kicked off my career and have huge family obligations. The Michael Maddux firm and I settled with 50 community service hours, an 8 hr anger management class (completed in a couple weeks), 24 months probation and reduced my felonies to just four, which after my probation period I can seal (never show up on public searchs, job criminal background checks, etc). I plan to complete the probation in half the time, which was also agreed upon. I could go on and on about how satisfied I am but, will shorten it with one last comment. No matter what situation your in, whether your looking for a breath of fresh air or a glimpse of light in the dark, let an expert, a friend, a counselor be your guide. Let Michael Maddux represent you.
