Mike Altman handled a personal injury/car accident case of mine and truly stood above the rest in all areas of his professionalism. He was knowledgeable - answered the phone from the FIRST CALL - went the extra mile on my settlement and unbelievably quick to respond and care for all of my challenges! His staff is also kept in the loop and great at customer service. THANK YOU MIKE AND TEAM!
I was in an automobile accident that left myself and my passenger stumbling out of my near totalled sedan for safety. This three car mess of an accident thankfully didnt send me straight to the ER or to my grave. It seemed to be just a few bruises, maybe a scrape.. My passenger, being that she had been nearly crippled in a childhood car accident was suffering from a tremendous amount of emotional trauma aside from her obvious physical injuries. We were hurt, scared, unsure of what sort of legal mess was in front of us, and didnt know what to do. That is when i called Mr. Altman. I can not stress the fact enough, OUR DAY WAS SAVED!
He immidiatly invited us to come down to his office, which we did after being tended to medically. After a short consultation the weight and fear of the unknown was lifted off our shoulders. He had every answer, even to questions we didnt know we had. He removed the problem from OUR hands, and started fighting for us. Not only did he personally refer us to the proper forms of "post accident care" that did not take a single penny out of our own pockets, but neither myself nor my passenger had to fight our way through complicated insurance companies or miles of legal red tape.
My overall "review" of Attorny Michael S Altman, is that he is the solution, the cure, the right man for the job to turn a situation from true negative into the best possible resolve i could have asked for. My damaged property was fixed, thanks to the great after care my body physically has recovered, i was compensated a GENEROUS amount of money for all of my troubles.. and BEST of all, it was EASY. Thanks to Mike.
Passionate - this is the one word I would use if asked to describe Attorney Michael Altman. Attorney Altman helped me through a rough patch in my life brought on by the negligence of someone else. He listened, he cared, and in the end I was awarded with a settlement that was well deserved. My calls were always taken and I was informed and constantly up to date regarding the details of my case. I would strong recommend Attorney Michael Altman. He was a highlight and positive factor during a down moment in my life. He was there for me and my family. The great thing is knowing I have the best attorney for life. Thank you!
Mike Altman represented my 16 year old son on a dog bite claim. He came highly recommended to us by a friend who's son he also represented on a similar case. Mike has excellent communication skills. He called often with updates and always returned my calls quickly if I called him. Besides being a super nice guy, Mike is very professional and knowledgable. He made sure my son and I understood the process in detail every step of the way. Because of Mike I believe my son received the best settlement possible in a surprisingly short amount of time.
I was in an accident with a driver insured by American Family. After an attempt to negotiate my claim on my own I realized that the insurance company did not want to make a fair offer. I retained Mike to take over my case and in the end he received an offer five times greater than I had. He took the time to explain everything to me and kept me informed as my case progressed. I was very happy with his work and I only wish that I had hired him from the beginning.
After the car accident I called the other persons insurance agency. It was clearly his fault, he admitted it immediately and was even cited by the police. When I called his insurance for a rental they told me they would not get me a rental car until they could "prove" it was his fault and it could be weeks if ever. I called Altman immediately and in 20 minutes I was able to pick up a rental. From that point on I never had to deal with the insurance company again. A short time later I received a very fair amount for my totaled car. As we were going through this process 3 of my friends had accidents and were struck by other drivings totaling their cars and causing injury. Talk about a coincidence! 2 of them did not want to pay any attorney commission and did not hire an attorney. One took my advise and called Altman. The two that didnt call any attorney were NEVER compensated for their losses, they were given the run around by the insurance companies as insurance companies tend to do. Both me and my other friend were compensated for our losses and never once had to argue with an insurance person, fill out any paperwork, turn in any forms, document doctors visits, nothing. I was able to go on with my life. Everytime I talked to Mike he never had bad news! He worked hard and did an amazing job for me and my family! The commission that is asked is well deserved, without him I would've had insurance people giving me the run around too, not answering calls or returning messages, and trying to make the accident anyone else's fault. Mike is a great attorney and I am so happy with what he was able to do for us! Everyone at this office has very high morals and standards and Mike was amazing at making the best of a bad situation!
Mr. Altman represented us on our personal injury case and we were very pleased with the settlement. He was extremely committed and knowledgeable of our options and explained these options so we could thoroughly understand them. We believe we received the best possible settlement and highly recommend him for any personal injury case.
