About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION. WINNING RESULTS. REPRESENTING INJURED VICTIMS. FREE CONSULTATION.

For almost thirty years, I have been fortunate to represent injured people and their families in their attempt to obtain justice.  Tampa is my home, but our firm handles cases throughout Florida.  If you have a question or a case in which I can help, please call me or send me an e-mail. 

 

I am Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Florida Bar and by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.  I am Rated AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubbell.    

 

But the greatest satisfaction I derive in my practice comes from achieving results for my clients.  I have been fortunate to have obtained a verdict over $10 million in both 2013 and 2014.  In 208, we obtained a verdict of $41 million for our clients, and in 2016 achieved a verdict in excess of $11 million.  We also have obtained many seven and eight figure settlements subject to confidentiality agreements.

AWESOME
MR. TRENTALANGE WAS SUPERLATIVE IN THE HANDLING OF MY CASE. THE INSURANCE COMPANY CAVED SHORTLY BEFORE TRIAL AND WE WERE ABLE TO REACH A VERY FAIR SETTLEMENT.

Tenacious & Dedicated Representation
Mike & Lisa were able to secure a large trial verdict on my behalf. They communicated thoroughly from the moment they took my case to the final resolution. Their communication and confidence helped put my mind at ease even as we went to trial. They fought for my rights and won! Trentalange & Kelley, P.A. Law Firm has my highest recommendation.
