Although bilingual (English and French), Michael typically speaks only one language: advocacy. Through meticulously crafted arguments, Michael has waged battle on behalf of his clients in state and federal courts throughout Florida. If your cause or claim needs a champion, look no further.

Michael’s experience includes litigating a variety of personal injury claims, contract breaches, and real estate disputes. In addition to his significant trial practice, Michael has also served as appellate counsel for clients in each of Florida’s five district courts of appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Central Florida, Michael went on to earn his J.D. with honors from Stetson University College of Law. Upon graduation, Michael began practicing complex commercial litigation with a large national firm representing major corporations and high-net-worth individuals. Having a strong preference for representing the underdog, Michael departed the silk-stocking world of “Big Law” and founded Phillips, Hayden & Labbee, LLP—an innovative law firm that leverages the latest technology to bring forward more effective legal solutions.

When he’s not fighting for his clients, Michael can be found playing golf, tennis, or enjoying the waters of Florida’s gulf coast with his family.
