The Service Found Only at a Small Firm

A top priority at the Plantation office of Michael B. Manes, P.A. is to make sure that clients understand that I am concerned about them as a person, not just as a case. Nearly all of my clients face serious challenges—severe injuries suffered in an auto or premises liability accident, serious criminal charges, or a complicated business transaction or dispute. As I work with you to prepare your case for trial or settlement, I always check to make sure that I am doing everything possible to ease the stress of your situation.

As a solo practitioner in Plantation, Florida I don’t have the overhead of comparable representation at the larger, more cumbersome law firms. That means no junior associates juggling your case, no layers of lawyers to get answers to questions. You work directly with me start to finish. I file the motions. I draft the contracts. I try the cases.

Business transactions change as they develop and disputes require positive action, being proactive, not just reactive. I am accessible and flexible, returning phone calls and e-mails immediately. You will be served by an attorney doing what it takes to meet a litigation deadline or close a deal. I am a deal maker, not a deal breaker.

You will not sacrifice quality and sophistication by choosing my office. In lawsuits I have secured results higher than $5,000,000 and have structured and closed transactions worth in excess of $25,000,000.

Serving the legal needs of individuals and small business across South Florida since 1983.
