Michael LaCava, Esq.

Founder / Managing Member

Attorney Michael LaCava founded LaCava Law Firm, LLC because he saw the need to practice law differently. Typical law firms charge hourly fees, are unresponsive, and rarely know their clients by name. Michael wanted to change that.

If you ask Michael what makes his firm different he will tell you three things:

     1) COMMUNICATION– you’re not waiting around for days on a response.

     2) TRUSTWORTHINESS– we provide honest and straightforward opinions.

     3) DILIGENCE– we work tirelessly to help keep the ball moving.

“These characteristics are really lacking in most firms”, Michael says. “I’ve experienced each as a client myself, and later as an attorney”, he continues. “On the client side, you’re waiting and waiting for the attorney to get back to you, and when they finally do, you find out they barely know what’s going on with your matter. On the attorney side, you’re given files for clients you don’t know, have never met, and then you are expected to prepare a quality work product for them based off an unintelligible file. After doing this for some time, and spending long nights away from my family, I decided I could definitely do this much better, so LaCava Law Firm was born, and it’s just taken off! My clients are happier, I’m happier, and most importantly, my wife is happier!”

A family man, when Michael isn’t helping his clients, he’s spending time with his growing family, which includes his wife Melanie, two kids + another on the way, two dogs, and one cat. “Life is really about helping others and being there, not just for friends and family, but for those that place their trust in you”, Michael says. “Helping others has really always been apart of my character, it’s really why I chose to make law my career, and why I practice in the specific areas of law that I practice.”

What Our Happy Clients Say

Michael drafted a contract for me and I couldn’t have been more pleased. He was easy to work with, responsive, and quick. I’m very pleased with the results!

Patrick W.Process Engineer

Michael did an excellent job negotiating my employment contract. He was intuitive about what I wanted, corrected several issues, and was very effective. Very shortly, I will be making much more than the initial offer. I can thank Michael for that! He is awesome!

Margot W.OB/GYN Chief Resident

Michael is an excellent attorney. He is knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things in a way that makes sense. He responds quickly and is easy to reach. I have been very pleased with the help he has provided me and highly recommend him!


I've been working with Michael with my real estate clients and he seriously does an AMAZING job! I've never met a real estate attorney who has so much attention to detail and does such a great job with walking our clients through the process so everyone is at ease. I highly recommend working with LaCava Law Firm!
