Mena Law Firm

Platinum Level Winner—Legal Services
(Winner 2021)

     We all at Mena Law Firm (MLF) are honored and proud to be recognized as a Readers’ Choice Award winner.  Thank you to everyone who helped make this important recognition possible. 

     MLF has been helping policyholders resolve their claims for more than 20 years. We have helped countless associations, businesses, and individuals throughout Florida navigate the sometimes-turbulent waters that are insurance claims.  MLF knows firsthand how frustrating insurance companies can be. Millions of Floridians make their insurance payments responsibly every single month, understanding that if disaster befalls them that their insurance company will step up.  More often than not, however, this doesn’t happen.   You pay your premiums every month, but insurance companies make it nearly impossible for you to access your benefits when you need them.  

     That’s where we step in and fight for you. We will work with you to understand your rights as well as your options.  We will take all steps necessary to maximize any potential recovery. Most importantly, we will fight for you, from beginning to end, to help you get what you are rightfully entitled to; and we will do so as aggressively as possible so that you may get what you are entitled to as soon as possible. With our experienced team on your side, we can help make this rather daunting process easier and less stressful.
