I was injured while on duty while working as a flight attendant in Colorado. After my injury I had to return to my home in Orlando. Due to my injury I am unable to return to this line of work and was having a very difficult time getting my employer to assist with medical care as well as financial compensation. I searched for an attorney online as I needed a Colorado attorney and was living in Florida. I found Cliff Eley online and called his number after reading his reviews from previous clients. He immediately responded to my call personally. Not only did he explain workers comp law to me in a language I could understand but offered his assistance at no cost to me until my case was settled. Cliffs' explanation of workers comp law and realistic expectations of what resolve there would be of my case gained my trust and confidence in his professional assistance and capabilities. Any time I've had a question or concern Cliff has always responded immediately and has always corresponded with me personally. I truly feel Cliff has my best interest at heart. His knowledge of the workers comp law & genuine interst in helping me with my injury and getting back on my feet has meant a lot to me and my family. I would definitely recommend Clifford Eley if you have been injured on the job and need help getting through the financial difficulties that come with being out of work from a work related injury. My case is still open, yet Cliff made it possible for me to recieve over $3000 which will help me make it through a couple more months and the holidays. Again, thank you Cliff Eley for your professional services, integrity, and helping me to get through this little set back in my life.

You can't ask for more when it comes to knowledge of workers compensation, I don't think there is anyone more qualified and experienced. I have had a unique case to say the least that has lasted years and there hasn't been an occasion when Cliff was not able to come through. Best of all he is a straight-shooter who does not in any way look to help himself first. His first comment to me once I explained my case was- "you can go to anyone if your looking for a payout, but if you're looking to solve your injury problems then I think I can help you." Every lawyer I spoke to in advance of Cliff never even asked me if I'd like to get my situation resolved. They all began by saying that they could probably get me X amount of money. What help is that when you need to get workers comp insurance to cover the costs of surgeries? Cliff pointed out to me that a lump sum of money might sound good to people, but how long will that money last if you have to pay for your own surgeries and Dr. visits. That money would be gone quick and what about follow-ups, or future issues? Not any of the other lawyers had me even consider this. Cliff could take his percentage of your settlement, but his true concern was more about your well being. He actually cares about his clients and their well being. Surely other lawyers are concerned their cut of your settlement and that is why they want you to know how much money they can get you. If you're looking for a payout go with any schmoe. If you are looking for results and someone who knows which doctors are in the pocket of insurance companies and which are in it to help people, go with Cliff Eley. I promise you that you will not go wrong. I am always amazed at the amount of time and effort he gives my case. You can't go wrong.

Cliff Eley is extremely knowledgeable in the workman's compensation field. He is very specialized. I tend to be a very panicked person in financial stress, and Cliff took care of my very stressful WC case. This was one of the most difficult times in my life, dealing simultaneously with injury, an inability to work, and financial stress, and Cliff took care of everything! There was very little effort required on my part. Also, I preferred to communicate via email during the months we worked together. I was always impressed when he would exchange emails with me even late at night and on the weekends! In fact, he let me know right away when my case was resolved at 11pm at night! Also in court, he was impressive, professional, and prepared. He also prepared me well for my testimony and questioning. I wish I could have filmed our "slam dunk" in court.

After being in a battle with the workers compensation of my company I felt that I was fighting a losing battle. The bills were stacking up and they refused to help or even listen to reason. I was beating my head against a wall trying to work with them and decided to go to Cliff for help. Once he had taken the case all of the minor irritations were gone and he streamlined the process as much as he could. He made sure that everything was well explained to me at all times and fought in my corner for me so that I wouldn't have to anymore. I would recommend him to anyone that is dealing with a problem in the Workers Compensation field. Hes quick, effective, and extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy.

I went through a complicated and lengthy (3 year long) Workman's Comp injury case in Colorado. Through it all, Mr. Eley and his staff, (including Danielle Schwartz, Mr. Eeley's paralegal) were always there to guide me with every step of the way. Any questions or concerns of mine were handled promptly and the advice they gave me as their client was absolutely correct.
Mr. Eley has many years experience with Workman's Compensation law in Colorado and is exactly what he represents himself to be. My case was handled professionally and with expertise. Due to that, I received the best outcome possible.
Without hesitation, I highly recommend the Eley Law Firm to anyone with a Workman's Compensation injury.
