Legionnaire's Disease Client Review
After discovering that I had Legionnaire's Disease which I contracted from the Best Western Sovereign Hotel in Albany, which has a history of problems with this disease, I contacted Michael Conway who I knew from newspaper stories was representing several other clients with the same problem. Michael was kind enough to visit me at my home while I was still recovering from the Legionnaire's so I wouldn't have to make the trip down to his office. I had originally contacted another lawyer whom I knew personally but decided to go with Michael because he was already deeply involved with other Best Western Legionnaire's cases. I always found Michael responsive and he dutifully kept me apprised of the status of my case by sending me all paperwork and staying in touch by phone. He answered all my questions in an easy to understand way. My case was settled by mediation, and thanks to Michael's and his team's efforts, I was remunerated nearly $36,000 in damages from the Best Western. I appreciate all of Michael's hard work and expertise and would heartily recommend him to anyone seeking an excellent personal injury attorney.

Don't think twice about it...Attorney Conway is very competent
A family member was involved in a multi vehicle accident as a passenger and sustain some long term injuries due to the impact and her age. Attorney Conway has allowed me and other family members to ask questions, give input, be involved in decisions. His communication is clear, as well as his actions. He is sensitive and well practiced and controls the process and challanges carefully and artfully while not wasting time. You would be under excellent care in the service of Attorney Conway.

Former and future client
On the two seperate occasions I retained Michael Conway's services, he was very professional. Michael knew what he was talking about and guided me through every process. I never had to wait for phone calls as he followed through on every level of communication. I have recommended Michael to others and will so again. I trust him to always make the best choices on my behalf. I retained Michael as an employee on a labor law issue, on my behalf and five years ago he represented me on a medical malpractice suit, I was the patient.

Michael Conaway review
As a past client I had an excellent experience with Michael Conaway as my lawyer. He is a very dedicated, upfront and take action kind of lawyer. If you are not experiencing this with your current lawyer I recommend that you change lawyers and contact Michael Conaway. If results are what you want then Michael is your man. Thank you Michael for what you did for our family. Having closure after so many years of waiting is a wonderful feeling. Now we can get on with our lives. Thanks again! A very satisfied client.
