Michael is a great lawyer! I would strongly recommend him to anyone that's in need of getting their case solved. Mike is a great lawyer with a side of humor and most importantly a side of professionalism. He is well over experienced and knows the laws very well. Mike responds to you whenever you have a question or concern as soon as possible. He is direct and hides nothing from you. Also, he is very flexible with his schedule. Instead of him telling you the time to come in and talk to him he asks "what time are you available" and works around you. Mike is reliable and can count him to get the job done!

I made contact with Mr. Misa through the advice of a friend and I absolutely will refer anybody that requires proper, accurate, precise, tenacious legal representation.
I couldn't be happier with the support he has given me, from the very beginning to the positive outcome.
Furthermore, he has been on various facet of the law, from police officer to the side of the prosecution to defense, I don't know how you could find somebody better versed in the practice of law.
My family and I thank you Mr. Misa.

Having to hire a lawyer for the first time, I found myself unsure of where to start in my defense of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. I decided to use Avvo's website and did a search for criminal defense lawyers in the Tampa area. After reviewing Attorney Misa's profile and reading the reviews posted, I contacted him for a consultation. Just as others have mentioned, Attorney Misa's diversity in experience and qualifications reassured me that he was the right choice. He is straightforward, professional, and passionate in defending his client's rights. He attended court hearings on my behalf and as a result I only appeared in court when he filed a motion to dismiss my case. The case was dismissed because of his motion and I am thankful for that. I would highly recommend Attorney Michael Misa!

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mike for over 20 years and he is the preferred referral I make when my clients have any criminal or personal injury legal issues. Mike is kind, but an extremely effective litigator with REAL trial experience.
