Goes above and beyond
Michael is not only excellent as a lawyer for your case, he goes above and beyond in every way possible. I was involved in a awful accident where I was hit by a drunk driver and injured. While I was out of work healing from the injuries I needed help with unemployment and Michael went above and beyond and helped me out. I had asked Michael for advice on multiple circumstances besides on the case for the accident and he helped me with every single one. Michael is thorough, intelligent, and tough. In the end my case worked out and we won but I was even more grateful for everything else he had helped me with. I recommend Michael Kiselica to everyone who needs a lawyer and am 100% confident I am giving them the best recommendation in the state.

Excellent Attorney for Medical Legal Issues
I am writing to recommend the services of Michael Kiselica. I have hired Michael on many occasions over the past 20 years regarding various medical legal issues. His knowledge and attention to detail have aided & resulted in great success with every case he has taken on. He is not only thorough, but also easy to work with, and always willing to take the time to discuss my concerns and responds to any questions I may have. One of my cases was involving a car accident where I had gotten hit from behind at 50 mph and I was at a dead stop in the road. The man who hit me stated he didn't see me stopped because of the sun. I thought this was a ligitimate answer and that accidents do happen. After a couple of days the pain in my neck was so severe that I needed medical attention ( x-rays, MRI's, etc). The physician in the emergency room told me that from getting hit from behind it moved a vertebre in my neck and that I would need to have surgery on it. I was upset and told him that I was going to wait, and I will see if the medication will work first. Well it did for awhile but about a month later the pain came back in full force. My medical bills were piling up from all the co-pays and continued doctors visits and physicial therapy visits. I decided to speak to Michael regarding what options I had. He took the time to explain all of my options and I decided to pursue a suit. When Michael did all of his investigations into the car accident he uncovered a lot more than "the sun was in his eyes" the driver was definetly impaired. Michael made sure all of my medical expenses were taken care of and I received compensation for pain and suffering. If it wasn't for Michael's knowledge, listening skills, attention to details and taking the time with me I would still be paying back all the medical bills that I incurred still as of today. I know there are many attorneys out there but I have not found one that goes over and beyond as Michael does. I recommend him very highly.

Excellent advice and responsiveness
Michael Kiselica has provided expert legal services for my business and personal needs for more than 30 years. His expert guidance has helped me make the right decisions in all legal matters related to corporate law and other areas. He is diligent, very hardworking and approachable. In my business I have the opportunity to recommend Michael on many occasions and all have been extremely pleased with the outcomes that resulted. It is difficult to find an outstanding lawyer in RI and I feel fortunate that he has been there to guide me for all these years to protect my interests in an area that requires deep knowledge and dedication to staying current.

Professional, Competent and Ethical...what more can you ask for?
I have encountered a number of attorneys in different areas of expertise in my lifetime including business, divorce, estate, criminal (not for me personally) and personal injury. Most have left me with a very negative impression, or a result that I felt was much more beneficial to them than to me. Michael Kiselica has represented my interests in business matters for over 20 years. He is honest, respectable and most importantly, respectful of his client. His billing has always been reasonable and accurate. Although we have had a number of conversations that have gone into areas of a more personal nature, he has never billed me for those parts of the conversation, a practice that I’ve been astonished to see other attorneys do. I have found Michael to be very intelligent and lawyerly but quick to explain things to me in terms that I could understand when necessary. He has combed over lease terms with me, helped form and maintain corporation filings, and represented my company in a number of negotiations, all of which I have been completely satisfied with. I can’t think of a person that I’d rather provide a referral for. Mike is intelligent, competent, and ethical, some character traits that are sorely lacking in many professionals these days.

Best Lawyer in RI
Extremely knowlegeable; Best lawyer in this area and he is very trustworthy. He won't pass on hidden costs or delay court hearings to charge more money. Many dishonest lawyers do that. He is very trustworthy and very competent. I wouldnt want to have him on the opposing side. He won alot of money for me when I was the victim of a car accident. A person ran a ride light and smashed into my car.

If he takes your case, you will win. Better than most RI lawyers.
This lawyer has helped me with two car accidents in which I was the victim. He was able to win alot of money: $40,000 and $20,000. He is extremely intelligent, clever and will win your case. About two years ago he found a loophole in the law for prostitutes and got them off. He made the news and the Cianci show. RI legislatures then had to make a new law.

Fantastic Service and Professionalism!
I have known Attorney Michael Kiselica as a lawyer for about 16 years. He has helped my family and I with mostly car accidents, all with a great outcome. He is honest, sometimes brutally honest, which is what you need from a lawyer. He is accessible when you need him and provides a sense of security when you speak to him. He speaks Spanish and is very accommodating to extreme circumstances. I can't say enough about this lawyer and his firm. I always recommend him to anyone I come across that needs a lawyer. If he can't help you, he is not afraid to guide you in the right direction to who can. He pulls out all the stops for anything you need help with. Great lawyer and friend!
