This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior and places conditions on the lawyer's license.
Michael’s comment: “This Reprimand occurred over ten years ago and has been removed from my record with the Florida Bar.”

I have known Michael for a very long time, he is a person of integrity and respectful of his clients needs. Michael has given me legal advice on several occasions and has always been there to deal with our concerns.

Michael Spotts has been my attorney for the past 6 years and I would highly recommend him. I have consulted with Michael on numerous occasions and when I needed direct representation he was my first choice. He handled my matter with knowledge, skill and character. I always felt that he had my best interests firmly in sight. His work was impeccable.

I have been a client for over 20 years and can only speak of Mr Spotts in the highest regard. He has helped me through thick and thin and always knows exactly what to do. If you want an attorney that communicates well and knows what exactly what he is doing rest assured you are in good hands. Michael has never let me down on any case and I would never consider using another attorney.
Jeff Gorman, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Michael for many years and he is respected by every lawyer that knows him. I was a prosecutor in St. Lucie County and first met Michael when he was defending a client against me in a very serious criminal matter. He was tenacious and very professional. I grew to respect his skills as a litigator and his skills as a trial attorney. Since going into private practice, Michael is one of the few attorneys that I recommend to clients. I have worked with him on several business clients as well as criminal clients. His command of the law and ability to quickly resolve cases is second to none. I recommend him highly.
Stuart Address, Wrongful termination Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have worked with Mr. Spotts over the past 10 years in situations wherein he and I were co-counsel and in situations wherein he and I were adversary counsel. I believe Mr. Spotts to be an intelligent and thoughtful attorney in analyzing cases and seeking the best results for his clients; whether they be by way of litigation or alternative forms of resolution. Mr. Spotts can be quite aggressive (not a bad thing for a litigator), but is also capable of working with other counsel in a cooperative manner to seek the best result for all involved.
