Board Certified in Personal Injury and Real Estate Law

Attorney Michael P. Fleming has practiced trial and appellate law in the Houston area for more than 30 years. His career includes two terms as the elected Harris County Attorney, and he is one of the few attorneys in Texas to ever win a case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Only around 1,140 attorneys in Texas are Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in dual practice areas, or less than 1.5 percent of the attorneys who practice in the state. Michael is one of them. He is Board Certified in:

  • Personal Injury Trial Law (since 1995)
  • Real Estate Law – Residential (since 2005).

To become Board Certified, a lawyer must have substantial, relevant experience in those areas of the law, complete continuing legal education hours, pass a rigorous exam and receive positive evaluations from fellow lawyers and judges. According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, consumers and organizations can feel assured that they will receive “the highest quality of legal services” when they work with Board Certified attorneys.

Additionally, Michael has an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell. The legal directory award that rating to only those lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability.

Our team also features the talents of Audrey Manito, who is fluent in Vietnamese and studied law in Ireland, and Michael Trevino, who is fluent in Spanish and recently won a case before the Supreme Court of Texas.

Our legal team’s diverse talent and experience allows us to represent clients in Houston and surrounding communities in a wide range of cases, including:

Our Approach to Serving Our Clients

When you work with Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C., the legal services that you receive from our law firm will be:

  • Personalized – An attorney (not a paralegal) will directly handle your case and give you full attention. Your lawyer will listen to you and understand your goals, and your lawyer will keep you informed and involved at every stage. We will treat your case like it is our most important case in the office because we know it is YOUR most important case in our office.
  • Comprehensive – You can leave everything to our attorneys. They will handle every aspect of your case from start to finish, including dealing with the insurance companies. Meanwhile, you can focus on your health, your business or your real estate project.
  • Aggressive – Not all of our clients’ cases go to trial. However, when they do, we are determined to win. We believe that success comes from our tireless preparation, including conducting exhaustive investigations, consulting with knowledgeable experts and crafting persuasive arguments for judges and juries.

Our cases begin with a free consultation. We will take the time to learn about your case, review your options with you and discuss whether and how we can assist you. If we cannot handle your legal matter, we can help you to find the help you need.

Our Service to the Houston Community and Texas Legal Community

In addition to providing legal services, our attorneys are highly active in the Houston community. For instance, attorney Michael P.
