I only gave Michele five stars because that was all that was available! This is THE lawyer I would send my Mother to! That is how wonderful she is! She knows the laws inside out, before you actually need her! I absolutely trust her with my Son's life! That's something for a Mother to say. Whether you think actually you actually need a lawyer or not; call Michele. She will protect you from any missteps you may take prior to needing to go to court. Even if you just don't understand the system and are confused; she will help with that too!

The best lawyer I ever worked with. They keep me inform. When I first meet with them they explain and told me everything I needed to know. They call to check up on me which is a BIG plus. I would recommend to EVERYBODY.

Michele Lewane is a compassionate, dedicated professional that made a difficult time in the life of my family bearable. She is a fighter for her client and is accessible in every way. Her knowledge in her field is unsurpassed! I feel blessed to have had her in my corner and I highly recommend her to any employee that has been injured. You will not find better representation anywhere!

They gave me reasons to be comfortable right from the very beginning and had me assured that I would win my case.It was amazing the feeling and attitude that they instored upon me from day one and I never had any doubts about them whatsoever. Would highly recommend them to anyone who has any type of problem. Thanks to Ms Lewane and her complete staff.

I had hired Michele in 2009. I got my settlement December, of 2012. Michele had done everything she said she was going to do, and then some. I have never known a lawyer like her. This women cares for her clients. She made our dreams come true. I had got a structure settlement. Money comes every month from my settlement. My home is paid for. She is the greatest woman around. I thank you and your firm. My family thanks you, too. I just don't know the words to tell you how thankful we are.

Michele has way passed my expectations and is a world class Lawyer. She and her associates have kept me well informed about my case. every time I have called them about an update on my case I was given the answers I needed at that time and was treated with the upmost respect and that goes a long way with me. My case might be a little diffrent then most, we had the inc. company fighting us tooth and nail not to approve or pay for my operation, but as soon as Michele talked to them all the sudden they approved my operations, and by the way I'v had 4 operations so far. But please if you need a good law firm the INJURED WORKERS LAW FIRM is here to help you as they did for me.

Michele and her staff did an exceptional job for my case because, they handled both sides as a workmen compensation Lawyer, and personal injury Lawyer. They kept me in the know for 3 years always available to answer my questions. I would strongly recommend them, and if the need ever arises I would hire them again.

The first time I called Ms Lewane and explained my injury circumstances, she scheduled an appointment with me. At this appointment, Ms. Lewane shared many answers to my questions regarding what to expect from my workers compensation claim. She explained what , by law, I am entitled to receive. She gave me a hand book with all of this information. She also explained that I can be compensated for my travel expenses.
My injury occurred 1-9-2011, and throughout my treatment, she was
always available to answer questions regarding some of the Insurance companies practices and how I should word my questions to them and to my case manager. I found that emailing her was the most efficient use of her time.
After seeing a specialist for my injury and receiving what amounts to a "stop-gap" surgical procedure which gave me no real relief from pain, she informed me that I should have been given the names of three specialists from which I could chose.
The first specialist was not trained in the latest area of treatment for my specific need. She encouraged me to request a new specialist, trained in this newer treatment, and after much time going back and forth with the caseworker, I was allowed to see a new Dr. that does specialize in the area of my injury need.
As of this writing, I have had many email conversations and phone calls regarding my progress and advice on how and what to share with my workers comp.case manager and the nurse assigned to my case. I cannot express how this "Guiding Light" has brought me to this day. I am to have a cutting edge surgical procedure on 4-24-2012, by a most competently trained surgeon. I may have given up in despair if it had not been for the encouragement and guiding advice of Ms. Lewane.
Even though I have not formally "Hired" Ms. Lewane, she has always made me feel that she was there to help me. I can only say, "thank you Michele, for helping me through the past year. If it were not for you and your staff,my story would have a different ending"!!

Michele not only settled my case but surpassed any expectations. This is the 2nd time I have utilized this lawfirm and if, hopefully not necessitated, I need to, would readily use again.... She also referred me to Erving Blank as a personal injury attorney and for that I am also grateful..... If you choose another attorney, then thats your loss....

I have had Michelle Lewane for a little over 2 years. She has done everything she said she was going to do, and more. I would recommend any injured worker to Mrs. Lewane. This lawyer actually cares about her clients. Like I said, I have had her for 2 years. The first year, she had got my cola for me. The lawyer I had for 5 years before Mrs. Lewane had done nothing for me in those 5 years. There was always a different story with him telling me every year. But, I found Michelle Lewane, and I couldn't ask for a better injured workers lawyer than her. She is not a lawyer just in it for the money. She cares for her clients. Thank you Michelle Lewane.

After looking for an attorney in my town, I began an internet search and I found an attorney who listens and who cares about my situation. I learned more about workmans compensation injuries just by reading the book that she offers free of charge. At least an injured worker will know some rights that he/she may have. Her book provides valuable insight into what to do to protect yourself when it comes to work related injuries. I would give her two thumbs up.

My Mom and I have been pleased with the correspondent of the letters Michele and the staff have sent Mom. Michele and her staff are impeccable, they are very spot on. So keep up the good work.

I never thought I would ever be hurt on the job. When I first met Michele she was kind , caring, and immediately put the ball in motion to help me face one of the most difficult things I would ever go through. She is the best attorney for an injured worker and she will hang with you all the wat through your case. She is proffessional, smart, and the top dog for sure. Look no further, you have found what exactly what you need to in terms of a worker's comp case. She saved my battleship from sinking - she was my lifeline!

Michele and her team helped me and defended me, so I can get better and get my life back. I am so thankful. This year has been extremely difficult and Michele has been my strength. She has been guiding me and helping me when things have been difficult. Others did not understand what it is like to be injured on the job.
