Great attorney
I received a speeding ticket and needed someone to handle the matter for me. Mr. Rossi took care of my ticket quickly and efficiently. He stayed in contact with me and let me know when the matter was handled. I received no points and a significantly lower fee than the actual ticket amount. I would highly recommend Mr. Rossi. Great lawyer.

Superior Service on Auto-Related Issue
I retained Mike Rossi to assist me with a moving violation I received in conjunction with a car accident that I was involved in. Mike was extremely professional throughout the whole process and advised me what I needed to do every step of the way. He represented me at the hearing and was successful in getting the points removed from my record and several months to y the fine. I would retain Mike Rossi for any vehicle related problem or personal injury case and know that I am in the best hands possible.

Took care of everything
Mike was efficient and effective in handling my traffic citation. I was hoping only to have the points kept off my record but he saw the case dismissed. I would certainly hire Mike again and recommend his services to anyone.

Best in Tampa
I have lived in Tampa for 20 plus years and have had the privilege of meeting a lot of people in the area over that time and Mike is one of the guys that always stands out both as a great guy and great lawyer. I have had him take care of a couple issues for me and he is always there to talk and communicate which is un-heard of in his business. So far he is 2 for 2 with getting me a favorable decision. My cases were small but he treated them as if they were as important as someone who had a lot to lose or gain. Might sound funny but I equate finding a great lawyer like finding a great mechanic. Not sure if I need to explain that statement. Mike is that guy you always trust and never second guess!

Integrity all the way
Mike handled each step of my case with integrity, with me personally and with all of the other parties involved. He always did the right thing. I honestly felt like he put my needs and interest above his own gain, like he would for a family member or friend. He cares about his practice and wants people to have a very positive experience working with him. There were times when I had many questions, and instead of answering them in the car on the way home at the end of the day, he invited me to his office so he could patiently walk me through all the moving parts. He has also worked for insurance companies and is very knowledgeable about the inner workings. Because of all these things, I felt very confident working with Mike. I was very happy with our results too. I was introduced by a mutual contact, and I would recommend that anyone work with Mike.

Excellent Attorney
If your looking for an experienced professional who will fight for you like you are part of his family then look no further. Mr. Rossi knows how the insurance companies thinks as he used to work for them which is an advance for you. He answers all your calls/texts immediately and has high intregrity. We all know there are plenty of attorneys out there - but with Mr. Rossi you will get the following: honesty, Professional, and if you settle your case will work with your doctors so their Bill's will be reduced so that you get the most settlement since you are the suffering party. If you hire Mr. Rossi it will be the decision you make as it was the best choice I made.

Excellent Attorney! Knowledgeable, professional & personable!
Mr. Rossi is an excellent attorney!! He is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. He worked diligently to ensure my case moved along in a timely manner. He is very professional but is also very approachable, personable, easy to talk with, and most importantly, easy to work with. No super ego here!! Mr. Rossi explained the proceedings every step of the way so I understood exactly what to expect from each step of the process AND I knew what was expected of me. (Yes, you should expect to play an active role in your case with ANY attorney!) Mr. Rossi is a man of honor and integrity. He definitely goes above and beyond for his clients. I have recommended him to friends and family, alike, and will continue to do so in the future.

The Best Lawyer In Florida
I was very fortunate to retain Mr. Rossi and his firm. Mr. Rossi always put me, as the client first, and he was always responsive and understanding of my situation. What separates him from other attorneys is that he is not only a zealous advocate for his clients, but he also takes time out of his weekends and personal time with his family to make sure that his clients are informed about every step of the process. Mr. Rossi was a man of his word from the beginning to the end, and the resolution surpassed my expectations by far. I have referred him dozens of times to friends, colleagues, and will remain to do so in the future. If you are lucky enough to retain Mr. Rossi, hire him. He is persistent and goes above and beyond for who he chooses to represent.

review your lawyer
Michael Rossi is handling my auto accident with injuries and lawsuits, and is without doubt the best attorney I have ever used. He is extremely thorough and very patient. He always handles himself in a very professional manor. When I try to contact him he always either answers the phone or gets back to me as soon as possible. We have gone to court together, and I must say that I was blown away by Michael. Needless to say we won the case. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone.

Responsive kind caring
Responsive kind caring. Mr. Rossi really went out of his way to help my mother who was desperate for advice and tight on time. On a weekend and without an appointment, he met us at his office and gave very specific direction to pursue our complaint. His advice was right on and his predictions were accurate. This saved my elderly mother many weeks of suffering and worry.

International assistance
Being 40000 miles away and not being able to appear personally, Mike provided me with excellent services and was always prompt with his assistance in explaining legal process and helping me understand what was happening throughout a difficult time. Highly recommended!
