Insurance Law Experience
Attorney Michelle Niemeyer has spent her entire career in the practice of insurance law. Following graduation from the Boston University School of Law in 1991, where she was an editor on the International Law Journal, she clerked for Superior Court of Delaware Judge Susan C. Del Pesco. The Superior Court of Delaware was at the time a preferred venue for large, high-profile corporations to file their insurance disputes. In her capacity as a judicial clerk, Ms. Niemeyer gained valuable first-hand experience with the inner workings of the judicial system and developed an interest in the practice of insurance coverage litigation.
Starting her career in a Washington, D.C. law firm, Ms. Niemeyer worked on large national insurance cases representing insurance companies in complex commercial insurance matters. Her work encompassed a variety of environmental and product liability related insurance disputes. She received extensive experience in insurance law coupled with knowledge and practical insight about how insurance companies deal with coverage and bad faith issues.
After working in the commercial litigation department of a well-known Miami law firm, she joined a small Miami insurance law firm. Since 1997, Ms. Niemeyer has focused her insurance practice on representing policyholders in all types of insurance coverage and bad faith matters, including:
- Commercial and Personal Lines Liability Coverages
- Marine Insurance Coverages
- Insurance Disputes arising out of Construction Litigation
- Directors and Officers Liability Insurance
- Homeowners Property and Liability Coverages
- Commercial Property Insurance
- Life and Disability Insurance
- Property and Liability Coverages sold to Condominium Associations

In 2003, Ms. Niemeyer founded Michelle M. Niemeyer, P.A. where she represents clients in insurance coverage and bad faith disputes with their insurance companies. As a successful insurance law attorney in South Florida, Ms. Niemeyer passes on her knowledge and experience by teaching continuing education classes to attorneys and insurance industry professionals both in South Florida and at national events sponsored by Mealeys and the American Bar Association.
At Michelle M. Niemeyer, P.A., Ms. Niemeyer takes a hands-on approach with all cases. Clients deal one-on-one with her from the initial telephone call to the final resolution of their case. They are integral members of a high-level legal team that may also include expert witnesses and an experienced paralegal, depending on the needs of their particular matter.
Michelle M. Niemeyer, P.A. invests in technology to make it possible to provide high quality legal services and to keep litigation expenses as low as possible for its clients. Client documents are scanned, avoiding the inordinate expense of copying the same paper over and over, a common complaint among larger law firm clients. Ms. Niemeyer's personal involvement means you have the benefit of her experience when initial legal and factual research are conducted, enhancing your likelihood of success and containing the cost of the litigation. In larger law firms, inexperienced associates often do legal research and factual investigation, and then pass the results on to partners who rely upon the associates' work when they appear in court without having had hands-on involvement in that initial work.
Ms. Niemeyer is actively involved in various organizations in the Coconut Grove community. She has a well-developed network of professional legal and non-legal resources that have served to benefit her client base.
