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.

Nancy also practices collaborative family law and drafts premarital agreements.
