I have been an attorney in Fort Lauderdale for 20 years and have known Michael for more than 10 of those. I can say unequivocally that he is a hard worker who personally cares about each and every one of his clients. He is respected throughout the legal community and holds and/or held leadership positions in many professional organizations. I fully recommend Michael.
- Mark S.
In 2011 after working as a movie extra in a Tom Cruise film named,”Rock Of Ages”; myself and a couple co-workers blew off some steam with a couple beers and a cannabis cigarette. We were parked in the Museum Parking Garage. Long story short I was issued a ticket for the cannabis possesion. Well, I goofed and missed the court date and a warrant was issued for my arrest. Mike Leader was able to have the warrant lifted and my entire case was eventually tossed out. I paid a fine and was able to resume my life and go back to work. Thank You Mike for your prompt attention to my needs, I strongly recommend Mike to anyone who has a legal issue.
Response: Thanks Mark. You are a solid guy and it was my pleasure to help you. I am always happy when we can get our client\’s charges nolle prossed (completely dropped) like we were able to do for you.

I had the opportunity to deal with Michael quite a bit when I was a prosecutor. He was a formidable opponent; always very well prepared, he wrote high quality motions on behalf of his clients and was able to effectively argue them at hearing. I would highly recommend this attorney.
Response: Thanks Josh. You are always professional and certainly had the knowledge and ability to put up a good fight. I appreciate your kind words; they mean a lot come from opposing counsel, especially one as good as you!
Michael Leader represented me many years ago when the police were trying to have me charged with Aggravating Fleeing and Eluding, a serious felony that would have made me a convicted felon for life and would cause me to lose my license. Mr. Leader was very creative and aggressive. He was able to convince the state attorney that even if they were confident I was guilty, there was no way they could prove the case. He had photographs taken of me, my motorcycle and helmet as well as me in my helmet to show there is no way anyone could have actually identified me as the driver despite the police officers claims that he could. I thought there was no way they would drop it when the officer was swearing under oath that he could identify me as the driver. I should never have doubted Leader for a second. No charges were filled and I walked away completely free with no penalties, not even a fine or courtcost. Even better, Mr. Leader waived a portion of the fee we still owed him despite saving my behind.
Response: This was a tough one but was fun for me too. When the case filer could not get around the way we boxed the officer in to his own report and descriptions and then produced the photos with other information about your bike, expert articles and information, etc. that showed he had to be lying about one thing if not the other I enjoyed myself a little bit. They did not want to let this one go but once I demonstrated the cop was over zealous and had to be lying, they had no where to go and the case went away. Hope you and your girl are doing well. Thanks for checking us out and posting this review after so many years.
Great honest lawyer that knows his stuff and cares about his clients and their cases.
