He has successfully won many medical cannabis cases, including several landmark high profile cases in Florida. He has represented some well-known patients including Cathy Jordan, Delbert Mullins, and Jeffrey Kennedy whom have had their cases dismissed. He won the first, and recently second, jury trial presenting the medical necessity defense to cultivation and possession of cannabis charges in the cases of Jesse Teplicki, and Bridget Kirouac in Florida. Michael has represented patients, including veterans, suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, Chronic Pain Disorders, Depression and Anxiety, Glaucoma, Severe Anorexia, Fibromyalgia, Liver Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, and other medical conditions charged with cultivation, manufacturing or possession charges.

Mr. Minardi's impressive credentials include:

• Part of the National Organization for Reformation of Marijuana Laws (NORML) Legal Committee

• Board member of The Silver Tour, who teaches seniors and vets about the benefits of cannabis

• Board member of CannaMoms, who provides awareness, education & access to cannabis for critically or chronically-ill, medically-complex, & special needs children

• Campaign Manager of Regulate Florida and is spearheading the movement to regulate marijuana like alcohol

• Board Member and Legal Director of NORML of Florida

Michael earned his undergraduate degree Cum Laude from the University of Rhode Island in 1998, and graduated Suma Cum Laude from Nova Southeastern Shepard Broad Law Center in 2002, where he was a Senior Staff Member of the Nova Law Review.
