Michael Cleaveland and Nancy Adair Cleaveland founded the law firm of Cleaveland & Cleaveland, P.L. to provide quality legal representation to their clients, and take great pride in their work.

Prior to founding Cleaveland & Cleaveland, Michael Cleaveland worked for one of Florida’s largest debt collection law firms for 10 years. He brought his experience and knowledge into his own practice helping those who have fallen on hard times. Our consumer law and bankruptcy attorneys handle chapter 7 bankruptcy, chapter 13 bankruptcy, debt defense, debt harassment, and foreclosure defense cases.

Nancy Adair Cleaveland is an experienced family law attorney who focuses her practice on the drafting of prenuptial agreements, and divorce and paternity cases. Our family law attorneys believe in offering choices to our clients, including uncontested divorce or paternity, collaborative divorce or paternity, and traditional contested divorce or paternity.

After experiencing the untimely death of her father, Nancy also found a passion for estate planning and probate. Along with guiding you through the probate process, our estate planning and probate attorneys also draft estate planning documents (wills, trusts, durable power of attorney designations, and healthcare advance directives) to get your own affairs in order.

The attorneys and staff at Cleaveland & Cleaveland pride themselves on being the shoulder their clients lean on when life happens. If you are experiencing financial problems, the break-up of your family, or the death of a loved one, our attorneys can explain your options and help you decide what course of action is best for you and your family.
