Mike Maurer previously worked as a defense lawyer for large corporations and insurance companies. He knows the strategies that they and their attorneys use to try to defeat or minimize even the strongest cases.
Maurer Law handles only wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury cases. The firm keeps its caseload small due to the extraordinary effort required to position each case for the best possible outcome.
For ten consecutive years, Mike has earned Martindale-Hubbell's "AV Preeminent" rating (highest possible rating for legal abilities and ethics) and he has consistently been recognized as a "Super Lawyer." Potential clients are encouraged to read Maurer Law’s numerous 5-star reviews across various online platforms. Adversaries are encouraged to do the same, because only then will it be clear that we will take a case as far as we need to. We’re not a “settle it and move on to the next one” kind of firm.
There are various tools in the toolbox when it comes to maximizing results for clients. One of the most important such tools is a thorough initial investigation. Just as a lawyer’s opening statement shapes the course of a trial, an early and intensive investigation shapes the course of the case. Many cases are won or lost not only on the quality of the lawyering, but on the quality of the investigation and this is a part of the case that Mike loves as much as he does the courtroom.
Whether it involves the use of digital forensics/IT experts, accident reconstruction/engineering experts, or old fashioned boots-on-the-ground investigative work, Mike loves nothing more than getting to the truth. Often, this means finding evidence that was not meant to be found. There are smoking guns to be found in nearly every case, especially those involving corporate defendants.
Mike has been practicing law since 2006, both in North Carolina (2011-present) and Florida (2006-present). His legal career began as a criminal prosecutor, but his passion for justice began even before law school when he spent five years as a police officer and detective. All of this experience has contributed to the success of Maurer Law and makes the firm truly one of a kind.
