This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Attentive, Compassionate - Family Law
Mike was incredibly prompt and attentive when he did my consult; I felt definitely heard out when explaining my situation and having to make some hard choices for my family, however Mike gave amazing advice to help guide me to a solution. Although it was only a consult, I plan to move forward and hire him for anything regarding family law. Mr Goldman, the head attorney of the firm I inquired with who referred me to Mike, called me after hours because of the urgency of the situation and gave amazing advice. You can tell everyone that works in that office cares about their clients and want to do whatever they can to help them out.

An Entertaining Entertainment Attorney
Mike is great. He met all of our film production needs and then some. He's a joy to work with and truly wants to see you succeed. He's an expert on the law first of all, but he knows so much about film production, cinema itself, and is the most creative lawyer I have ever dealt with. If you need anything in the world of production accomplished, you cannot go wrong by hiring Michael Mauro and Mauro Law Firm. Our business formation, releases, production contracts, and everything else was left in great hands, and we felt reassured and confident with the firm on our side throughout the entire process.

If you need an Estate Attorney
I had a great experience with the Mauro Law Firm team, especially Michael Mauro! In 70 years, this is the first time I had to hire an attorney. Mike Mauro promptly returned my call. He gave me a free consultation before hiring him for some estate planning issues. I found him very knowledgeable, polite, respectful of my time and money, and interested in discussing various methods of attacking my issues. I would definitely recommend him in the future!

Thanking Michael for Great Work
It took some digging to find a reliable entertainment attorney outside of LA or NY that can help me with content related issues and making sure our production company is on the right course. I first consulted with Michael by zoom and then met to review and further discuss the many projects we have in mind to complete. Mr Mauro helped us with basic business matters and then reviewed production agreements and drafted a couple particular ones needed for our situation. We are very happy to now have a local collaborator for our documentaries.

Professional, transparent, responsive
Michael was very quick in responding to my inquiry online and provided an informative consultation in person that led to the retainment of his services. He guided me along the process and was very transparent in his work, sending them to me for review before submission, and then following up with me after, providing me with timely updates. Michael was very professional and it was a pleasure to work with him. We won our case, which I attribute to his skills and experience.

Highest Recommendation
I hired Mr. Mauro to fight Lansing with licensing issues and he did. What I liked most was that he was honest and upfront about both the positive and negative aspects of the matter and did not pull any punches with me. He also always kept me well informed about the process and status of the case. You can feel good about hiring his firm and I know I did.

I Highly Recommend Mike!
We were very impressed with Mr. Mauro from the beginning. He immediately contacted us back and sat down with us for a couple of hours to discuss our issues. Then he immediately went to work for us. We appreciated that he always emailed or texted us updates throughout the process, and we were even more appreciative that the result was better than we expected. Thanks, Mike!

I had Mike review some contracts regarding building a new home because there were problems with some of the subs. His demands settled the issues without having to go to court. I would recommend him.

Responsive and Knowledgeable Attorney
Mr. Mauro assisted our company with some contract negotiations and drafting of an agreement for use by Warner Bros. He was easy to work with and provided a good result. He has a remarkable attention to detail. I would recommend him to anyone seeking an entertainment attorney.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent Experience
We used Mr. Mauro for a personal injury matter and for help with business and licensing issues. He completed everything in a timely manner, kept us constantly informed, and gave it to us straight. We find him to be honest, reliable, and very competent. We used him in Los Angeles but also needed help with our business in Michigan.

Had a big problem and he took care of it
My business was in a terrible situation - financially, being sued for ridiculous reasons, and we had licensing issues. Michael really took care of everything in a fantastic way. He also makes you feel comfortable working with him because he is down to earth and has a lot of life experiences on top of being a competent attorney. I have worked with many attorneys throughout my life, and he is the only one I would return to for help.
