In October 2008, William was diagnosed with a heart attack. It had been 1 ½ years since the incident when William discovered the Florida Heart and Lung Act. This is a law that was designed to assist First Responders with workers compensation. Since Williams’s employer did not inform him of the information, due to their lack of knowledge, we contacted Mr. Leibowitz Law Firm. After discussing the case he agreed to take the case, and won. But it didn’t stop there. Not only did he win our case, but he went above and beyond to find out why State personnel in Tallahassee was not aware of the law and the benefits that was created to protect First Responders of Florida. William is a Forest Ranger for the State of Florida, not one of his supervisors was aware of the Heart and Lung Act. Mr. Leibowitz made sure that the State Office was aware of this act. Mr. Leibowitz made several visits to the panhandle to meet with personnel from Williams work and he met with his doctors. We have never had an attorney to take such an interest in a case. Not only is Mr. Leibowitz dedicated to his clients, but he goes the extra mile to make sure they fully understand what is happening. I hope we never need another attorney, but if we do, Mr. Leibowitz and his outstanding staff will be the one we choose to represent us.

Mr. Leibowitz and his staff are extremely professional. I feel I was kept aware in a timely manner of all processes regarding my case and never once felt that I was being slighted or treated as just "another client". Watching Mr. Leibowitz litigate at mediation was amazing. He was well prepared with all the documentation for my case and it was quite apparent that much research had been done. The worker's compensation attorney tried every way he could to discredit myself and the facts but Mr. Leibowitz never once lost his focus or his composure. Mr. Leibowitz was able to win my case and the outcome far exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to use Mr. Leibowitz again, if needed, and would highly recommend his firm.

I have had the fortune to utilize Martin on numerous workers' compensation cases. His wealth of knowledge is amazing as is his ability to communicate the law to the average person. He is very conscientious in keeping me apprised as the the status of our various claims and many times goes into great detail just to ensure that I understand everything.
Martin is not only a fantastic attorney, he is also a very talented and patient teacher. He has spent many hours talking to me about the law, the code, and other aspects of the workers' compensation system. This additional service has not only benefited my career, it is equated in additional savings to our company.
In short- I have worked with and continue to work with several workers' compensation attorneys across the USA and Martin, by far, is the best among them.

When Martin Leibowitz took my Workers' Compensation case I felt I was being taken advantage of by the Carrier and was very stressed over the situation but his background as a prosecutor and experience with Workers' Comp proved invaluable in pursuing my case. Mr. Leibowitz continually kept me up-to-date and informed on how the case was going and I never once felt that I was just a number with him. His assertiveness and determination to win led to a successful out of court settlement in the end. I highly recommend Martin Leibowitz to handle your case.
