“I found my law firm on two driving principles: Professional Quality, and Personal Care. I know that each case I handle represents a very important issue in my clients’ lives. My clients are my neighbors and my fellow community members, so it is my priority that they their case is being handled with the highest level of dedication.”
– Mike Ziegler
Attorney Michael “Mike” Ziegler represents consumer and commercial clients in foreclosure defense, bankruptcy, collection matters, and other civil litigation issues.

The Law Office of Michael A. Ziegler, P.L. was opened in 2012 with the goal of empowering consumers with debt problems.
