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!

Michael Misa is great at what he does, representing the best interest of his clients. He will work hard for you, just as he did me. I feel confident recommending him to any family/friends who need legal advice. He is extremely knowledgable and was happy to thoroughly explain the legalities and options available to me. 5-Stars!

Found Atty Misa from an online search for an out of state Attorney for my son who had been extradited for a criminal offense he did not commit. It was a nightmare, but the response and helpfulness of Atty Misa, made it a little more bearable and dismissed! I would highly recommend him.

I met with Michael to discuss cyber harassment issues and while I had nothing concrete to give him which is what an attorney needs, he steered me in the direction of an emerging industry that could possibly provide the evidence an attorney could use.

Advised my employer of DUI arrest, asked if he could recommend an Attny for me and he referred me to Mike Misa, he had not used him but had heard of him. I called Mr. Misa and he immediately set up appt for me to go over case. He was very up front,discussed what was going to happen, advised me of his fee ( very reasonable ) and off we went, he helped me get my hardship license, got me enrolled in alcohol school and started working my case. In the end, he was able to get the charge plea bargained down to Wreckless driving with minimal fines and costs.

Oh my God....from the moment we called him, we felt a sigh of relief. Michael is very professional, yet very personal and reassuring. Having Michael on our side helped us to relax during a very difficult legal process. His legal argument was brilliant and as a result the case against our son was Dismissed!!!!!!
This is the only attorney I would highly recommend.

A few years ago, I was desperately looking for a lawyer to represent my case. A case, which involved a Tampa Police Department officer arresting me over a weapon in my vehicle. During the arrest, I was very cooperative with the officers. I explained that I was in the Police Academy and on my way to the firing range. The officers had asked if I had any weapons, or drugs on my person or vehicle. I replied, "Yes. I have an H&K .40 Cal. in my vehicle and it is unloaded, no magazine in the weapon, and more than 3 steps away from being able to be used (glove compartment). Regardless of my cooperation, and honesty, I was arrested.
Mr. Misa, did what no one else could (including my own family). He reassured me that I was in fact in good hands. That I should go on with my life and he would take care of everything. Although there was a looming cloud of negative thoughts for over six months as I awaited the case, he was right. I had nothing to worry about, he in fact did take care of my case. We appeared in court, I pleaded not guilty. Mr. Misa took care of all the verbal disputing, and we walked out. I should also mention that I only presented myself to court once while under the care of Mr. Misa.
I was always one to say "lawyers are just about the money, they are greedy, dishonest, and unfair". Although most of you who are reading this may have that frame of thought. Do NOT make that mistake with Mr. Misa. This man was honest from beginning to end with me. He guided my life for six months while I was awaiting a court case. And had an amazing team who was there for me every step of the way. Michael Misa did not turn me down ONCE when I had to see him. He did not ever give me limitations in regards to my feelings and time. I could not have asked god to place me with a better lawyer during such an important time in my life.
Thanks to Michael Misa, I am graduating from school this May 2015, and continuing onto my bachelors at Rutgers University in New Brunswick as a Software Engineer. If I had any other person representing me that day, I am certain I would possibly be in jail until this day. Thank you Mr. Misa, I owe you my life. You are invited to my graduation! =)

We have used Attorney Misa in two cases now, one is still ongoing. He is very straightforward and knows the law. He makes you feel like he cares about your case and that is very important--especially for people who have not had much experience with the criminal justice system.

Mr. Misa represented me for a DUI charge. He kept me informed about the process and was present for me in court to minimize the amount of work that I needed to miss.
The charge was resolved in my favor, and Mr. Misa certainly represented me competently and knowledgably.
