My X wife made lying accusations of Domestic Violence which Mr. Stanski quickly disproved and the charges were dismissed. His professionalism and intense desire to serve me was incredible. His “Bulldog” approach to getting justice and exposing the truth is most assuring. I will forever be in his debt and so thankful that he went above and beyond to ensure that I we represented every step of the way.

Loyal Fighter
I hired Attorney Stanski after firing my previous counsel. From the time of the consultation I was confident that he was the right person to handle my case. After hiring him, he went straight to work. I was able to communicate with him throughout the process to make sure that my voice was being heard. He is very sharp and competent in family law. I would highly recommend Attorney Michael Stanski to anyone in search of a lawyer that will truly fight for them.

Highly satisfied
I was very satisfied with the services that were provided by Michael. If you like someone that tells you the truth and not what you would like to hear, I can highly recommend Michael as your lawyer. He is very thorough and takes his time to understand your need and is available to you, whenever you have a question or a need. His professional attitude is also very helpful. In addition, he has a wide knowledge about various topics and behaviors due to his experience living overseas and being part of the military. Michael will do anything he can to find the best possible outcome for you.

Pleasure to work with
It has been a pleasure working with Michael Stanski as my attorney. From our very first consultation, I knew he was the type of person who has a kind heart and truly cares about his clients. He did not mind if I asked a ton of questions and took his time to thoroughly answer all of them. He explaind all of my legal options and every step of the legal process. I never felt rushed and was always kept well informed of any developments in my case. He always responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manor. Michael was very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Michael is very professional and keeps his composure all the time, unlike me. I know I contacted him multiple times with my concerns and almost yelling at him. He addressed them like a pro every time a d just let me vent then explained things to me in a rational way. As impatient as I was he was not. The end finally came and I was very happy with his results. Thanks Michael. I used his services for my divorce.

My Family's best interest
Mr. Stanski was very helpful to my father and I, with a matter that give me problems, Due to his on going medical problems I was having a time getting his affairs in order. Mr. Stanski broke the matter down into term that my father and I could understand then give us a number of way that we could move forward. He is very professional but with a kindness that put you at ease. He answered all our questions but also asked the right questions, I had already been down a difficult road trying to handle this matter alone, but with his true kindness and professional knowledge we were able to put that matter to rest and move on to other matter of life, Mr. was truly a God sent to my father and I.

"Michael Stanski stands out as one of the most impressive lawyers I know – and I happen to know hundreds, having served as President of The Jacksonville Bar Association. He is professional, smart, and respectful. I believe his outstanding personal experiences, morals, and patriotic character contribute to his superior level of expertise, which makes him uniquely qualified. His exemplary background includes being a U.S. Army helicopter pilot, a U.S. Air Force Judge Advocate General (JAG), and being deployed twice to Iraq and Afghanistan. He currently serves the U.S. Air Force Reserve JAG, representing the U.S Air Force in a legal capacity, as an attorney. In addition to brains, Michael has been trusted to provide physical protection to the U.S. President and important dignitaries while serving as Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service. Can you think of anyone better than Michael Stanski to trust as your attorney, especially if you are a veteran or military member?"
