Getting you the best result in your case is my goal. I provide each client with professional, personal service while striving to expertly handle their case. I have a diverse range of legal experience, and I have successfully represented clients in both civil and criminal cases.

I am a former Assistant State Attorney in Florida and a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Hawaii. I have prosecuted and defended some of the most serious felonies with great results.  

I separate myself from other lawyers in that I have successfully represented clients in jury trials in both civil and criminal cases (you can see some of my actual Results). In addition to my jury trial experience, I have also successfully represented clients in thousands of contested court hearings, bench trials, mediations, and arbitrations. 


We hired Michael Fayard to file a motion under the ‘Romeo and Juliet law (removal from Sex Offender/Predator Registration). Other lawyers that I had contacted said. . .it was going to be ‘a lot of work.’ Michael got it done fast with excellent communication and professionalism. He was very reassuring and most importantly worked things out in our favor. THANK YOU!
