No lawyer in NYC works harder then Michael Lamonsoff. He truly cares about his clients and obtains very large settlements on matters other attorneys reject. I've had the pleasure of working with Michael and other attorneys at his office on mutual cases involving workers' compensation cases and he always seems to find the time to help all of his clients.
