Mike Duncan regularly represents individuals and businesses in these types of cases. Duncan Trail & Family Law has far-reaching knowledge and skill in handling all types of disputes born out of 20-plus years of experience analyzing these matters and litigating them for our clients.

Mike Duncan develops litigation strategies based upon the circumstances of each case, and utilizes a creative and aggressive approach in representing his clients. Duncan Trial & Family Law helps its clients assess the costs and benefits of, as well as the risks associated with, each potential strategy. We also know that litigation and lawsuits do not exist in a vacuum, and that disputes and litigation are a distraction and headache for our clients' lives and businesses - our job at Duncan Trial & Family Law is to make those distractions and headaches go away quickly and at the lowest possible cost.

With Duncan Trial & Family Law, clients get the benefit of real trial and courtroom experience. Mike Duncan is not simply a paper litigator, but has significant courtroom and trial experience with the types of cases described above. Mike Duncan is constantly evaluating the case focused on what documents and testimony will resonate with the judge or jury, and every case is prepared for and handled as though it is going to trial. This means that, once the litigation strategy for the case has been developed, it is implemented with a targeted approach. Discovery and depositions are not conducted simply for their own sake - as some law firms unfortunately do - but are instead implemented when necessary to address legal and factual issues material to the case. Mike Duncan has tried and won cases after initiating little or no discovery - while this is not the approach for every case, why expend client time and money on discovery and depositions if they are definitely not needed? That said, in other cases an aggressive approach is necessary to track down crucial information, and in those matters Mike Duncan does not waste time and uses every permissible resource to obtain the information required for the case.

Mike Duncan's approach to these types of cases has resulted in significant success for his clients. These cases include jury verdicts and judgments for millions of dollars for his clients and winning injunction and other court hearings. Because Mike Duncan's approach to these cases is direct and aggressive, the other side often knows that we do not fear taking the case to trial, and clients can often achieve successful results through mediation and settlement.

Duncan Trial & Family Law has significant experience handling business disputes and litigation. Our strong reputation has been built upon a foundation of client service, trust and legal skill in complex matters. This reputation has been repeatedly affirmed by the numerous accolades Mike Duncan has received, including Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating, the AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating, his repeated recognition as one of Florida Trend's Legal Elite, and his being named a Fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America.
