I hired Michelle back in 1998, for my workman comp case. I had 2 major surgeries and the most important thing was the lifetime medical and I can't stress enough, the importance of knowing that she actually cares about your well being, making sure she does whats most important for you. She fought for what I needed, inculding lifetime medical and although the other side pushed back, she was there every step of the way and we won. It's hard to find a Attorney, that doesn't push you out of the office, one that truly listens to you and looks out for your health and not their percentage. She wont just simply settle unless you want to, which is the most important thing as you need to understand that once you sign that paper, thats it. She sat with me in the office, explained everything. You just don't find a Attorney that spends as long as it takes and in my case, it was a long and I mean, long battle. Typically, Attornies, just want to settle as fast as they can and move on to the next case. It was a 8 yr battle and although, we are having some issues with the other Attorney, she again, is fighting for what the Judge signed off on. I know in my case, they most likely lost money but whats important is that she didn't just ignore me and with dealing with a lot of Attorneys, she is trulys one of a kind! I almost threw in the towel as I was exhausted with all things the opposing side was doing and I am so thankful that I listened to her. If you want someone who isn't just your Attorney for their percent, one who won't settle for nothing less than whats most important for you, then she is the one you need fighting for you. I don't just give Kuddo's easily. however. when one works as hard as she did on my case, then I believe in giving Kuddos and she truly deserves it. She worked hard on my case and I am not lying when I say that my file is probaly the biggest in her office but the most important thing is that shes honest, makes sure that her client health is the utmost importance and trust me, you need someone strong because the opposing side will try and wear you down. I am impressed because she returned all calls, kept me in the loop and not once did she get frustrated or just throw in the towel. I was lucky to have her as my Attorney and trust me, when your dealing with pain and having a hard time and you will, you need someone like her on your case. You won't be disapointed. Thank you Michelle, I would have been lost without you!
