Biography

Mr. Micheo-Marcial is managing partner at DMR Law. His main areas of practice are white-collar criminal defense, criminal defense, commercial litigation, and general litigation. Mr. Micheo-Marcial’s panoramic view of the law and practical approach to his client’s problems has proven to be a successful formula when litigating cases both in Puerto Rico and Florida.

Before his time at DMR Law LLC, Mr. Micheo Marcial served as an Attorney Advisor and the Disclosure Official for the Puerto Rico Department of the Treasury’s Internal Revenue Department. Mr. Micheo-Marcial was instrumental in the revitalization of the Department’s program of seizures of real property for the satisfaction of sales tax debt. This program resulted in the temporary closure of several businesses, including prominent restaurants, due to their failure to properly pay the Department of the Treasury the sales tax charged to their clients.

Subsequently, Mr. Micheo-Marcial served as a Law Clerk for the Hon. Judge Daniel Domínguez. During his clerkship, Mr. Micheo-Marcial managed roughly 50% of Judge Dominguez’s civil docket and 33% of his criminal docket. While there, he assisted Judge Dominguez in managing several high-profile cases, including the United States v. Aurea Vazquez and the United States v. Lemuel Velilla.

After his clerkship, Mr. Micheo-Marcial was an associate attorney at McConnell Valdes LLC where he consistently worked on high-profile matters. Specifically, Mr. Micheo-Marcial was one of two associates assigned to manage the Puerto Rico Police Bureau’s compliance with the Agreement for the Sustainable Reform of the Puerto Rico Police Department. This matter was of particular notoriety, as the Puerto Rico Police Bureau was notorious for systemic civil rights violations and the use of excessive force. Mr. Micheo-Marcial also served as second chair in the case against Abel Nazario-Quinones, the former mayor of Yauco, Puerto Rico, and the case against Julia Keleher, the former Secretary of Education of Puerto Rico. As part of McConnell Valdes LLc’s Miami Office, Mr. Micheo-Marcial represented criminal defendants facing charges of money laundering, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and conspiracy to import narcotics to the United States, among others
