We WIll Always

put you first

We focus on representing those that have suffered a loss.  Some of the cases we handle involve personal injury, losses from dangerous products, malpractice, fraud, or business disputes.  While the types of matters vary, we know that each of our clients has a story to tell. Our lawyers and staff work to give a voice to each story.

To do this, we listen to you and then use all our skills to fight for your rights.  Whether the fight is for justice to make bad practices stop, or for compensation or other remedies, we work to get the recovery that your family deserves.

over 30 years of experience

30+ years of experience

For more than thirty years, our lawyers have presented cases throughout the United States in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration.  Some disputes involve only one victim.  Others involve groups of people that are in similar situations.  We have handled small groups of two or three clients, up to groupings that include 100s of clients.

We have been honored to help clients through challenging and life-changing events. And we never forget who we work for – at Stanley Law, you are in charge.  We encourage you to contact us for a free consultation.  

Michael Stanley

Michael Stanley

While Michael was a pre-med student in college, his landlord broke the lease agreement, assuming that a young student would just go along with the unlawful demands.  Michael took the landlord to court, representing himself, and won.  The next semester, he changed his major and decided to pursue a career in law.

As a young lawyer, Michael represented clients that include a model whose agent tried to take advantage of her; overseas parents who did not receive their deceased son’s body after paying to have it shipped to them; a start-up company fighting multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies over the development of a novel drug; the parents of a premature infant that died as the result of medical malpractice; a soldier that was severely injured when a Blackhawk helicopter crashed due to a manufacturing defect; and a foreign government that shut down a bank over money-laundering concerns.

Michael continues to pursue the “bad guy” and confront corporate greed.

He recently represented hundreds of retirees that lost much of their life savings to an international Ponzi scheme.  He represents hundreds of others injured by dangerous products and chemicals throughout the United States.  He understands that families injured by big companies may feel intimidated or lost as they think about getting involved in complex litigation.  He is committed to guide his clients through the legal process and seek justice against reckless businesses that place profits over people.  

Michael’s clients can expect to see an attorney who is responsive, creative and truly wants to make a difference.
