The Cerasa Law Firm Fights For The Injured
Meet personal injury lawyer Michael Cerasa
Attorney Michael Cerasa of The Cerasa Law Firm LLC has taken on some of the biggest corporations in the world – and won.
When Liberty Mutual Fire Insurance and USAA Casualty Insurance Co. didn’t want to provide proper payouts on sinkhole claims, attorney Cerasa knew the right thing to do was to get up to bat for the people of Florida. He won two landmark rulings that pushed back on insurance companies that wrongly deny or minimize legitimate claims.
When 200 million gallons of crude oil poured into the Gulf Coast during the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Cerasa Law Firm represented hundreds of small businesses impacted by the catastrophic pollution.
Attorney Cerasa successfully helped Central Florida clients driving Audi and Volkswagen diesel vehicles recover their losses when it was discovered the cars emitted toxins at a rate over the legal limit.
Most recently, attorney Cerasa has gotten involved in litigation against Johnson & Johnson related to talcum powder causing ovarian cancer in some women, and against Bayer over its potentially dangerous blood thinning drug, Xarelto.
The legal experience you need – the personal attention you deserve
Attorney Michael Cerasa takes on big companies, but he works for individuals. He understands that every client is unique. Attorney Cerasa will listen to you AND develop a winning strategy for your claim.
Attorney Cerasa has been representing people in the Orlando region – Floridians, snowbirds, students, and tourists – for more than 15 years. His goal is to offer clients the experience of a big law firm coupled with the attentiveness of a smaller practice.
Born in Massachusetts, attorney Cerasa fell in love with Florida while attending Florida State University College of Law, where he graduated cum laude. He began his professional career in law immediately after and has been admitted by state bars in Florida’s Northern, Middle, and Southern districts as well as the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. A longtime advocate for accident victims, attorney Cerasa is focused on holding negligent people responsible for their carelessness or greed and making sure that injured folks understand their rights and don’t get ripped off by insurance companies.
He has been named a Super Lawyer, holds a 10 out of 10 rating on AVVO, and has been ranked as one of Florida’s Top 100 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers.
You can count on us
Attorney Cerasa will listen to what happened in your accident, your concerns, and your needs. Together you will decide the best legal route forward to winning you the compensation you need to fully recover. He will be with you every step of the way and you can count on him to be attentive, available, and ready to answer your questions.
During negotiations with the insurance companies and in court you’re going to see the passion he has for his work. You will see the pride he takes in fighting for people when they’re down and out following a bad accident.
With deep knowledge of Florida and federal law and an aggressive strategy, attorney Cerasa holds the doors open when the insurance companies try to shut you out. Using the evidence he’s collected in a thorough investigation, witness statements, hard-to-find documents, and citing legal precedent, he will demand the settlement you are owed. If an insurance company decides to be unreasonable and refuses to budge from a lowball offer, he is more than happy to go to trial and beat the providers in front of a judge and jury.
Committed to Central Florida
Attorney Cerasa is dedicated to the people of Central Florida and the Orlando area. He lives in the city with his wife, Jennifer, and their three children. He knows why people love Orlando – Winter Park, the East End, world-class restaurants, Lake Eola, amazing wildlife, beaches, Mills 50 and the Milk District, UCF, and Disney.
Attorney Cerasa also recognizes the area’s challenges – dangerous, congested roads and highways with high numbers of crash fatalities, too many car accidents involving pedestrians, and water pollution.
