What Our Clients And Peers Are Saying


Mr. France and his team are very competent and professional attorneys. I am always confident that they will handle any matters that I may refer to them with the utmost diligence.
Jonathan P. Whitney, Esq.
Lutz, Bobo & Telfar, P.A.

As an employment attorney, I have worked with Michael and his team on many business dispute issues that are outside of the employment arena but still impact my clients.  He is surgically precise when identifying problems and solutions in partnership and contract issues.  Michael acts expeditiously to protect a client’s business, and if that means going to trial, Michael is a master in the courtroom.

Christine Sensenig, Esquire
Sensenig Law Firm, P.A.

Our firm handles a large volume of transactional work, and we frequently have conflict work to send to Michael and Tim.  They always do an excellent job, and have always proven to be problem-solvers instead of problem-makers (I’m looking at you, other litigators!).  They do not handle transactional work, so I have never had to worry about our referral sources wandering their way.  I have litigated on the other side of both Michael and Tim, and have always found them to be thorough, prompt and incisive.  I recommend them without reservation.

Daniel C. Guarnieri, Esq.
Berlin Patten Ebling, PLLC

I have consistently referred my legal and accounting clients to Michael and his colleagues since 2010. I have consistently had extremely favorable outcomes and excellent advice and my clients have been very pleased with the representation they received. I personally was represented by Michael and had an excellent experience as well. I am fortunate to have such a strong litigation firm to service our client’s needs! Thank you!!!

I have retained the services of France Litigation Group for several years, and in that time I have found their services critical and invaluable. Professionals all. Having consulted with Mr. France personally on a variety of legal situations and circumstances I can attest to the importance of having someone with his experience on my team. He is courteous, knowledgeable, and easy to understand. I highly recommend France Litigation Group.

Feeling helpless in the face of adversity is something that each human faces at one point or another in their life. Knowing the facts about liability, having a trusted advisor to counsel and guide you and understanding what options are available to solve your dilemma is everyone’s greatest hope.

In Michael France, Esq. you will find the compassion, competence, understanding and trust to meet your adversaries in the legal arena.

Attorney France ranks at the top of my list for wise counsel and when a litigator is necessary, he is at the top of his game. He is a conservative and facts-driven attorney who cares deeply for his clients and their well-being at all times.  Trust no other…

Knowing Mr. France is just a phone call away gives our family such peace of mind. The expertise and emotional support he has shown us during several stressful times have been invaluable. In a legal world that can seem so complicated, it’s comforting to know we can always call on him for help. We rest easier knowing that in the future, no matter the legal terrain, we have someone to help guide us.

The Shelton Family

He is an amazing man!  Great lawyer, could not have been represented by anybody better than Michael. Wonderful person with attention to details., both great and small.

Georg Sutcliff

We want to thank you for giving us such great representation. We have had many attorneys in our life time, both personal and business. However, we have never had an attorney like you that also gave us emotional support. For that we are very grateful.

Linda and I have been in the Sarasota County area for close to 50 years. We have operated J.C. Little Plumbing in the area for over 30 years. To say we’ve been around the block is an understatement. We have met many people in our time in business. We’ve seen the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in business. Michael and his group is absolutely the Good. From the moment we walked into the office, Michael was honest. A word most would not normally pair when speaking about an Attorney. He was upfront with what our potential options could be, fair about what he was charging, and reliable. As a business owner, Michael is certainly someone you want on your side and can feel confident he’s getting the job done. He just makes sense! Anyone seeking a litigator, we absolutely would send them to Michael and his group.

J.C. & Linda Little

Running a complex construction company requires having a strong team and receiving the best support and advice at every level of the business. We have been working with Michael for years and have relied on his expertise and from contract work to dispute resolution and we feel safer and stronger knowing he is on our side rather than across the table!! His personable approach and no-nonsense attitude gets you to where you need to be as quickly as possible, and that is very important to me.

Mike has been my attorney for almost 3 years and has represented me on some big cases. I like his style and he knows how to litigate.

Desmond Brivik
Bowtox Boutique Med Spa

In 2009 I wrote the following testimonial of Michael France:

“I run a multi national import business that provides products to companies all over the United States. I have personally been in business for over forty years, and unfortunately I have had to use law firms all over the country. I have been using Michael France as my attorney since 2007. In all that time, Michael is the first attorney I have trusted without reservation. He handles what I need to him handle quickly, he gives me his opinion even if it is not what I want to hear, and he always makes time if I need to see him. More important, he does not over charge or churn my files, which I have seen plenty of over the years.”

As of December 1, 2020, I only feel more strongly about Michael and his group as a whole.
