Michael FayardAttorney and Counselor At Law
Getting you the best result in your case is my goal. I provide each client with professional, personal service while striving to expertly handle their case. I have a diverse range of legal experience, and I have successfully represented clients in both civil and criminal cases. I separate myself from other lawyers in that I have successfully represented clients in jury trials in both civil and criminal cases. But my Results speak to that regard. In addition to my jury trial experience, I have also successfully represented clients in thousands of contested court hearings, bench trials, mediations, and arbitrations.
I sharpened my skills as a felony State Prosecutor handling some of the most serious felonies. I then joined three of the largest personal injury firms in the country where I handled class actions, mass tort, and general injury cases.
In my private practice, I have represented clients throughout the United States in different state and Federal Courts handling a wide-range of cases both serious felonies and civil matters, including injuries. I have also successfully handled corporation transactions including on the international level.
I am proud veteran having served as an enlisted soldier in the Active Duty Army, the Air Force Reserve, the Army National Guard, as well as being Commissioned as an Armor Officer in the Army.
