Firm Overview

How I Can Help

If you are injured in an automobile accident through no fault of your own, caused instead by the negligence of someone else, it is extremely important that you secure the assistance of an attorney to represent you in seeking redress for the significant costs you will incur relative to the treatment of your injuries, the repair of your property, and the income lost due to your being out of work. Additionally, you may also be entitled to be compensated for your pain, suffering and inconvenience, all of which you were made to endure because someone else acted with negligence.

The law is designed to protect us, and to provide redress for wrongs committed against us. Navigating your way through the complexities of our legal system in pursuit of your legal rights and having to deal with insurance companies places you at a significant disadvantage when you are not represented by an attorney. The decision to seek representation in timely fashion is of critical importance in circumstances involving a motor vehicle accident, as time truly is of the essence. Without quick action, evidence can be lost, locations can be altered, and witnesses may never be located.

No one enjoys the idea of having to bring litigation, but neither does anyone enjoy enduring the pain, suffering, and inconvenience of personal injury due to the negligence of others, nor the frustrations involved with repairing or replacing damaged property. You have legal rights available to you in such instances, and you have the right to be represented by your own attorney in the pursuit of those rights, in the interest of attempting to make you "whole" once again.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?


Unfortunately, there are instances during the course of human life and events that result in unforeseen disruption to our health and wellbeing. Accidents and injuries happen, the severity of which can range from life altering tragedy to the relative inconvenience experienced due to minor accidents and injury. Most injuries, however, fall somewhere in between these two extremes of potential consequence.

When someone is injured, the disruption to their life is manifested in many ways. Pain is suffered, inconvenience is endured, the enjoyment of life is lost, medical bills are incurred, work is missed, interaction and relations with others are compromised, and total recovery can sometimes never be realized.

If it were possible for the law to turn back time and in some way redirect the cause of events to have you avoid injury, it would certainly be the just and preferred remedy. But obviously, this is not possible. Instead, the only option the law has available to make an injured person "whole" again is through an award of financial compensation for the injury suffered, the pain it caused, and for the myriad of other consequences and inconveniences you would have otherwise never been subjected to were you not injured in the first place.

The law is designed to protect us, and to provide redress for wrongs committed against us. Navigating your way through the complexities of our legal system in pursuit of your legal rights, and dealing with insurance companies and major corporations, places you at a significant disadvantage when you are not represented by an attorney. The decision to seek representation in timely fashion is of critical importance in circumstances involving personal injury, as time truly is of the essence. Without quick action, evidence can be lost, locations can be altered, and witnesses may never be located.

Michael Trerotola

Michael graduated from the law school of Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in June 2000, and was subsequently admitted to practice law in Florida in October 2000. Michael then went to work for the law firm of Russo & Mitchell, P.A., a south Florida personal injury and civil litigation law firm, representing the seriously injured and plaintiffs in all matters relating to civil litigation.

Michael is also a 25-year veteran of the Miami-Dade Police Department, having served as a police officer, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, and major. Following his admission to the Florida Bar, Michael represented fellow officers and members of their family who sought his representation in matters relating to personal injury and civil law disputes.

In 2007, Michael joined The Mitchell Law Firm, a civil trial law firm representing clients in all areas of civil litigation, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In 2008, Michael relocated to Virginia. After sitting for the Virginia State Bar in July 2008, Michael was admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia in October 2008, after which he founded his own law firm in January 2009.

In 2012, Michael returned to Florida, establishing a new law firm in Jacksonville, Florida with a focus on representing clients in the area of personal injury law.

Michael provides representation for those injured as a result of the negligence of others. As is common in representing injured clients, attorney fees are calculated on a contingency basis and you are responsible to pay attorney fees only if there is a settlement prior to trial or we win a judgment in your case at trial. Litigation costs are additional and are payable regardless of outcome, as is also standard practice in representing the injured.

Michael is available routinely for initial free consultations weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Evening and Saturday appointments are also available upon special request. Emergency consultations are available 24/7 for those seriously injured when immediate legal representation is desired.
