Duncan Trail & Family Law has far-reaching knowledge and skill in handling these 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 - 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, arbitrator 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 certain 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. Duncan Trial & Family Law has vast experience handling civil disputes, arbitrations and appeals. 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.
