More than just a lawyer.
Mr. Meksraitis and his firm are exceptional! I have had the best experience with his firm in the midst of a tragic situation, From the very first consultation I had 100% trust and confidence in Mr. Meksraitis and his firm. Mr. Meksraitis told me in my consultation that he would treat my case like it was the only one he had that I would be his top priority. There was never a moment during the entire length of my case that he did not stand true to those words. The communication waves between the firm and the client are phenomenal. I always felt like I was informed about every aspect of my case from the very beginning. Mr. Meksraitis and every person in his firm have the same humbling, empathetic personality. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone looking for an honest, dependable, highly intelligent lawyer that makes his clients his top priority .

Handled accident case for our son Adam M. Hoffman
Our son's case was rejected by a Pensacola attorney because he didn't think it was winnable. A friend suggested we contact Michael Meksraitis in Tampa. Mr. Meksraitis referred out son to Dr. Joel Franck who performed a difficult neck operation to re leave pain, headaches and numbness. with a great result and at the same time Mr. Meksraitis proceeded with the accident claim and was able to gain a sizeable settlement for our son over and above the medical expenses.

Great personal injury lawyer
I met Mike many years ago when he was representing a seriously injured man in Federal Court. Since then, I have worked with Mike on several personal injury cases and I can say he is one of the best trial lawyers in Tampa.

Michael is great!
Michael did an excellent job for me in a rear end collision case in July of 2005. I did not wish to go to trial and he was able to get me a very generous settlement that paid all my medical bills with money left over for me to use for future treatment. He was available to speak to personally whenever I needed him and his staff was courteous and knowledgable as well. I highly recommend him.

My Hero
Mr.Meksraitis took my case when no one else would. He worked valiantly to defend me against some pretty tough circumstances. He explained my medical records to me in a comprehensive way none of my practitioners had. I was very blessed to engage a seasoned veteran with the utmost integrity and amazing staff. May he never retire!

The Best Lawyer.
Hi: This is Gretel and Henry Magdalena, we received assistance with this attorney regarding a motor vehicle accident a few years ago. He took the time to listen to our problems, gave us lots of positive suggestions, his response was always quick. He always returned our telephone calls in a timely manner. Never pushed us away, always had an answer to our questions.

"Mike Meksraitis and I attended the College of Law at the Florida State University: I was in the first class and he was the year behind me. He has always been one of the best trial lawyers I know. That requires thorough preparation and exhaustive--and exhausting--knowledge of the law. You cannot do better!"
Car accident Attorney | Nov 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"When I run across a serious injury case, I call Michael Meksraitis. His ability to spot issues that turn what look like small cases into much larger cases is truly amazing. He never ceases to amaze me with his medical knowledge and his breadth of expertise. If I was involved in a serious accident, Michael Meksraitis would be one of the first calls I made. If you've been in an accident of any kind you need to call Michael, he gives straight answers and gets great results!"
