Legal Cousel from The Beliz Law Firm
I had contacted The Beliz Law Firm as I was in need of legal counsel. In my line of work, I deal with attorneys with regularity. Dealing with Michael Beliz was refreshing as he didn't have the arrogance or "know it all" attitude I have been accustomed to when dealing with attorneys. While extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter, Michael talked with me instead of trying to talk over me. He didn't attempt to use any of the latest "buzz" words in our conversation but instead talked to me in a very service oriented way. He took the time to listen to me and he responded in a sincere, straightforward way while detailing my possible options and explaining the possible outcomes. Sure enough, the legal advice Michael provided was spot-on and allowed me to take the best course of action which ultimately resulted in the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend The Beliz Law Firm and should I need legal counsel or a personal injury lawyer in the future, Michael Beliz has become my new go-to guy.

Excellent work Ethic and overall a lawyer you can trust
What I truly enjoy about Attorney Michael Beliz is the fact that he has excellent work ethics, and will answer any questions you have over legal matters with great expertise and in terms his client will understand. He knows how to have a professional connection with his clients and keep them up to date in everything that is going on in their case. I am very pleased that I was directed to him on a case he worked in back in 2006 due to a car accident. He did his job by making it possible for the responsible party to pay all my medical bills and compensation. Overall he is a very trustworthy lawyer and now a days not to many lawyers have this quality. In my opinion not only do you need a great lawyer like Mr. Beliz but one who you can have a trustworthy connection between Attorney to client.
