Fantastic Help
I had decided to reach out to Lisa and her team at the urging of a friend who had also used her services. At the time I had reached out I was getting no where on my own. Workers comp wouldn't return my phone calls for over a month and because of this I couldn't continue my medical care. After hiring Lisa I was contacted by workers comp within 2 weeks and medical care was scheduled immediately. Lisa's team communicated with me every step of the way and explained the process to me. Without them I feel I would not have received the medical care that I needed and my case would not have had the favorable ending that it reached. Due to their help, I feel that this chapter of my life is finally closed and I look forward with some hope.

Lisa is professional and understanding
As a mom of newborn who postpone my car injury treatment because of concerns of coronavirus for safety’s sake, I sought consultation from Lisa about my situation. She gave professional advice on how to proceed with my case for my benefit.

Workman's Comp
Lisa Pezzano Micky has represented me twice. Both times I found her and her staff to be very helpful with the issues I was having. They listened to my concerns and advised me on what we needed to do .They kept me well informed of what was happening. When I had questions, they were very accessable and explained the process. Both times I had very favorable outcomes. In the future, if I need the services of a lawyer, my first choice will again be Lisa Pezzano Mickey.

The Best Attorney
Lisa Mickey and her law firm are the most thorough and caring firm we've ever had. Here is why we switched to Pezzano Mickey & Bornstein: Before we found Lisa we were being shuffled around, made to feel insignificant and that we were a bother if we called to even ask a question. Our file had become so vast no one could ever answer our question. The personal care and effort we have received with Lisa are what sets her firm apart from all others. For the first time, we feel confidant that we will have the greatest outcome because of Lisa's attention to detail. No one else ever explained or even asked our opinion of what we wanted. I feel we are working as a team and are important, not just another case. My family matters and Lisa is working hard to fix the mistakes that were done to us by other firms. Lisa also enlightened us about Kids Chance an amazing scholarship organization to help our children with their education. Its for the children left behind either because they lost their parent from a work related death or injury. Because of Pezzano Mickey & Bornstein our children will both be able to go to college. Why didnt any other firm tell us about this? We know we will have the best results now that we found Lisa. A million thanks to you and your firm.

Settlement of Workers' Compensation Claim
Throughout the course of negotiating a final settlement for my worker's compensation case, Lisa Pezzano Mickey always put my best interest in the forefront. I was especially appreciative of the fact I never felt intimated whenever it was necessary for me to approach Lisa and help explain the plethora of legal jargon involved in these particular cases. Whether the response was via an e-mail, a telephone conversation, or US Postal Service, all my questions and concerns were quickly and concisely answered. From my personal experience, the wheels of justice seem to move slowly, but I was extremely grateful to have acquired the professional services of an attorney who was trustworthy, offered me excellent legal advice, and whose expertise was in settling workers' compensation cases. To say Lisa Pezzano Mickey goes above and beyond the call of duty is probably an understatement. When the day arrived for a final settlement in court, the entire procedure, thanks to my lawyer, was seamless. I knew how very fortunate I was to have hired a woman who was such a credit to her profession.

Workers compensation Attorney | Mar 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Lisa for over 15 years. She is the attorney I first think to turn to whenever I have questions about my own worker's compensation cases. She has superior knowledge of the worker's compensation system. She's a strong advocate for her clients. She is also highly ethical and credible, which is why the judges I come across have a deep shared respect for her."
Workers compensation Attorney | May 31

"One of the most tenacious lawyers. Honestly, I hate having a case after her in Court because the defense attorney usually is frustrated, and likely feels that they overpaid on a claim. Incredibly organized and thorough representing her clients."
