Hired Carl for a workers compensation claim. He met with us initially and took all the information about the injury and wasn't pushy about trying to get us to sign on for him to take out case. We had checked a few other attorneys and they seemed more concerned about getting us to sign a representation agreement. Not so with Carl he explained some of the laws and rules to us and what our legal rights were for workers compensation issues and gave a brief run down of how the process works if we chose to have him represent us. We felt at ease and comfortable with Carl so we hired him. Simply put it was a wise choice, He got everything filed and processed quickly and dealt with the workers comp company from the start and kept us informed along the way. We were not satisfied with the first opinion/recommendation or treatment of the first workers compensation Dr and we were advised to seek a second opinion by Carl. Glad we did there were substantiated medical issues that were missed and/or overlooked by first Dr and we are in the process of getting the medical issues resolved. Throughout this process Carl has taken care of all the needed correspondence, been on top of discussions with the physician(s) and making sure all the medical records and workers comp insurance stuff has been dealt with. We have been regularly notified of what is happening and where we are going next in this claim. Anytime I have had an issue or a question I either called or emailed Carl and I have always received a call or return email in less than a few hours with an answer to my question or concern. Based on my experience with work comp Drs, health care facilities and workers compensation insurance providers I would not want to try to handle and deal with all that needs done without a good attorney. Without good legal representation these mentioned entities will try to delay, not be truthful (in my opinion) and you may not get you the treatment or coverage you need to recover from a workers compensation injury and claim. I have a full time occupation and with workers comp there are too many things that need done or need to be taken care of to try and do it on your own. Carl has handled our case very well and gotten things done and done efficiently and timely that would not have gotten done if he wasn't representing us. Bottom line I will recommend any one who has a workers compensation injury and claim to seek out Carl to represent you. If you want to spends lots of time and have lots of headaches trying to deal with all the stuff involved and still have to fight the work comp industry people then try it yourself but I would recommend you go see Carl.

Carl was referred to me by another Attorney because I have a worker's comp case that has been dragging on for almost three years, although worker's comp wants to settle. My previous attorney was pushing me to have surgery, which was against my will, because it would get me more money, and of course him too. However, I refused to submit to his wishes and the case just lingered. I was told to call him when I had the surgery which I never did so he didn't call me and I didn't call him until I got fed up with my condition and waiting for him to help me settle this matter. I met Carl a couple of weeks ago and I have learned more from him without being pushy, and I fell like we are finally getting some where with this case. Carl is working with me as to how I would like to settle the case. I truly want his expertise in this matter and he is giving it and I really appreciate him! I will encourage every one I know to contact him for his trustworthiness, responsiveness, knowledgeability as he keep me informed on my case. When I meet with him, he never rushes me or makes me feel uncomfortable. He is very professional, yet down to earth. We even talked about his plants. :-) Having an Attorney with all of these characteristics are very important in every aspect to any case which Carl possesses.

Mr Reisman embodies all the qualities I was looking for in a lawyer, and constantly went the extra mile to ensure my case was handled quickly and professionally, all the while keeping me updated without me even having to ask. I have used several lawyers in my life, I assure you I will now use only one the rest of it. Thanks Carl.

Mr. Reisman handled a personal injury case for me where the State of Illinois was the defendant. He very effectively dealt with arcane matters, state bureaucracy and state lawyers. He was persistent, thorough, and effective, provided much guidance, and gave importantly good council. His approach is client centered, affable and caring. His professional handling of my case was superb. Highest recommendation.

Carl has handled two worker's comp cases for me over the past six years. I could not have asked for a more professional handling of my cases. When my mother passed away during the first case, he sent flowers and a card. That really tells you the cares about his clients.

I have been a client of Mr. Reisman for 3 years. He is a very nice and caring man. He is very easily accessible. He takes all his own calls and is very prompt getting back to you. He works mostly on referrals so that in itself should speak loudly! I dont' know what I would have done without him! If you hire him , I'm sure you won't be disappointed! He's the greatest!
