Biography Overview

Mr. Marrese spent 10 years in Chicago as a personal injury/medical malpractice attorney, and is now currently in St. Augustine, Florida. He is still licensed in Illinois, as well as in Florida. Mr. Marrese has tried numerous catastrophic injury cases with several results between $4-6 million dollars.

Mr. Marrese is a Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer. This is what the Florida Bar says about Board Certification:

Board certified lawyers have met The Florida Bar’s highest standards for special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in the practice of law. Certified lawyers’ experience and competency have been rigorously evaluated, and they are the only Florida lawyers allowed to refer to themselves as specialists or experts or to use the letters B.C.S. to indicate Board Certified Specialist.

No matter how much experience a lawyer may have in civil trial, only board certified civil trial lawyers are allowed to identify themselves as specialists or experts in this area of law.

Mr. Marrese has tried all types of injury cases to verdict, in several states, and in many, many counties throughout Florida. This wide variety of trial experience has given him a unique perspective on what types of cases appeal to the jury you are likely to see.

He has five verdicts, not settlements, over $1,000,000 in the last seven years, ranging from $1,000,000 to $6,000,000, including one for $5.98 million and another $5.25 million. So if you want an attorney who the Florida Bar says is a ”specialist” in trial law, then ask for Mike, specifically.
