I want to first say that I fully endorse Bryan as a lawyer and a caring gentleman. His legal knowledge and abilities are top-shelf and he is an authentic and personable man who took the time to know me and my family. I would not hesitate to work with him in the future.
Bryan represented me in a personal injury case. I was significantly injured when the vehicle I rode in was broadsided by a driver who ran a stop sign. The impact was directly on the passenger-side door where I was seated.
I came to his firm because of a recommendation from a friend and sought legal help because the complexity of the case was well beyond my abilities to represent myself. Bryan interviewed me thoroughly and professionally, explaining that he does not take frivolous cases. After a careful review of the facts, he accepted the case. (His team at the firm included lawyer Dan Moraniec.)
Several attempts were made to settle directly with the insurer and evaluated by Bryan based on research he did to estimate a fair value based on similar cases. The insurance company's offers were well below and Bryan advised me to reject them. The case then went to an independent review panel and the insurance company rejected that figure as excessive.
At that point, Bryan met with me to discuss the situation and the risk/reward scenario of a law suit. I was never pressured by him to choose one way or another, and he truly encouraged me to do what I believed to be the best thing for my family. After considering the possible outcomes, I chose a law suit as the best approach; I felt our team had done its best to settle the case fairly out of court.
Bryan was efficient in all the required filings and pretrial processing. This is a much more extensive undertaking than I realized and takes a lot of work. He did it right the first time!
Before the trial, Bryan met with me (on a weekend) to prepare me for the trial. I had never brought a law suit to court and I was nervous. He explained what he would do, what the defense would do and how I would be involved. I was still nervous, but I felt much more confident.
At trial, Bryan has a terrific presence, very confident and assured. Over two days, he called the witnesses that he felt would be right for the case and combined that with the medical evidence to show the effect my injuries have had on my life. Bryan sticks to the facts of the case with a intensity.
The summary to the jury was masterful in my opinion. He tied the evidence and to the Michigan law, reasoned and direct. Significantly, he called out objections to the defense when that team incorrectly cited statute. What I saw was a truly impressive display of professional knowledge and conduct by a seasoned professional.
The jury decided in our favor and the amount was much greater than any of the previous out of court amounts. Bryan obtained final payment in a matter of weeks, well within an acceptable time. He showed me a detailed accounting of all case expenses and his firm's share and I did not have even the smallest doubt of its integrity.
I am thankful to this day for the service Bryan gave me and my family and I recommend him for personal injury matters. Thank You Bryan!
Without a doubt the finest attorney I have ever had the pleasure to know. His skill, professionalism and integrity are unmatched. Additionally, Bryan is a wonderful person. I was not only very pleased with the outcome of my legal matter, I was proud to be represented by this fine man.
My case was anything but easy. I honestly believe 95% of attorneys would have cut their losses and jumped shipped the first time things started going rough. Bryan stayed with case all the way through every appeal and subsequently a successfully ending.
In my opinion the reason Bryan did not walk away from this case is 2 fold: 1st and foremost he believed I was legally correct and 2ndly he was fighting for a man whose longevity was extremely questionable at the time due to the accident.
Bryan was NOT going to allow corporate greed ruin another life without paying the price.
Thanks my friend!!!!
Having been subjected to medical malpractice, I used Mr. Waldman's law firm to handle the instant case. Right from the point of initial contact and throughout the litigation process. Mr. Waldman kept us apprised of the development of our case whether it be by office meetings, letter, home visits, or by telephone calls. To us, he worked diligently, fairly, and was found to be trustworthy, honest. and displayed integrity. He was very open in his thoughts and was not at all a 'stuffy' attorney. Mr. Waldman was at all times a well-prepared lawyer and had all of his 'ducks in a row', so to speak. He was compassionate with us in all of what my wife and I had been through. The case concluded in a positive way for us and had we not been successful, we certainly would have still felt that Mr. Waldman served us in the best possible way. With all that has been said here, we would never hestitate to retain the services of Mr. Bryan Waldman should we ever need a lawyer in the future.
It is with great pleasure and honor that I write this review for an attorney that I feel stands above all others. Several years ago I was involved in an automobile accident. It was my good fortune to be introduced to Bryan Waldman and to subsequently have him as my attorney. For those of you who have not experienced a situation such as this, it brings your entire life to an immediate stop. Confusion and helplessness become your primary emotions. This is the point at which you hope to have someone who can step in and provide you with the guidance, help, and advice that you need to get back on your feet. This is where Bryan Waldman became my savior. Not only is Bryan highly talented and knowledgeable about the law, but he is also extremely patient and compassionate towards his clients. Bryan took care of every aspect of my case for me from dealing with the insurance company over reimbursements to the actual filing of the law suit. There was not one time over that two and a half year period that he was not available to me to help in some way or to answer my questions. In the end, the case that he prepared was flawless and ended up winning me the settlement that I deserve. To anyone reading this review, I would without any hesitation strongly recommend Bryan Waldman as the attorney to pick. I have always felt the Honesty and Integrity are two of the most important qualities to have and when you put them together with talent, knowledge and compassion you get the kind of person and attorney that Bryan Waldman is.
My husband was still alive when Mr. Waldman was hired to care for us, my husband died about a month later. When Mr. Waldman found out that my husband had died, he and all of his staff went over and above the call of duty to help my family. He was there to call insurance companies, my husbands job etc. These things were not in the scope of what he was hired for.
I had become a widowed 28 year old pregnant single mother of a 3 year old. I was very afraid. I am very happy to report that 16 plus years later, Mr. Waldman is still in our lives. Please also note, he is not being paid . Mr Waldman is very respectful, honest and caring man.
Some members in our family wanted my husband and I to hire a well known television attorney. We choose not to do that. If we had gone with the well known TV guy, I don't think we would have had the same personal touch that we are still enjoying to this day. With this Firm, I felt everyone was so helpful. Every person knew my name. I think most of them to this day still will call us by name.
When you are young and are faced with these terrible life changing events and decision, you need someone you can trust. I was truly blessed to have Mr. Waldman in my life to assist us.
