I contacted the law firm to represent me with a motor vehicle accident case. The best decision I made. My sincere thanks and appreciation for all your help and support with my case. Attorney Lamansoff , Attorney Tominovic , and the rest of the team are efficient, compassionate , courteous , and highly professional. I was always informed every step of the way during the process and treated with utmost respect. The settlement exceeded my expectations because of the work ethic and dedication which speaks for itself. I wholeheartedly recommend the law office of Michael Lamansoff to anyone who is in need of first class personal injury legal representation.

Remember the name Michael S. Lamonsoff
I was honored to meet Michael S. Lamonsoff in person. I am pleased to have hired Michael S. Lamonsoff as my attorney. Throughout the process of my personal injury case I was very pleased and satisfied with the work of Michael S. Lamonsoff and his team. Michael S. Lamonsoff fought really hard to get my case in court during this pandemic. Michael S. Lamonsoff kept his foot on the neck of the defendants until the defendants either appeared in court or settled for a satisfying amount. I could never just call the attorney Michael. I always have to say Michael S. Lamonsoff -which his name definitely equals the BULL. I highly recommend Michael S. Lamonsoff as he went above and beyond to win my case.

The best ever!
I never needed a lawyer; honestly, I was scared to deal with a person that didn't care about me and my problem. Unfortunately, one day I needed one and a great friend to recommend me, Mr. Lamonsoff. I called the next day I was at his office, sent me the transportation and listened to my ordeal. He, in person, heard what I had to say and agreed to take my case. They took care of me step by step. They never ghost me and keep me posted in every single progress. Now, I know, I have a lawyer for life and I'll recommend Mr. Lamonsoff and his team 100%. They have people who speak different languages in order to feel more comfortable if your native language is not English. Thanks to a dedicated lawyer and his team. I'll be grateful for life

The Bull and his team are AMAZING
Michael Lamonsoff and the entire team handling my case were nothing short of amazing. NO questions were ever left unanswered. Every detail of my case was explained to me in depth and I was sent to great doctors. If I had any issues or didn't make it to appointments, they would reach out and handle things on my behalf.
