Mike has built a well-earned reputation for being a creative, strategic trial lawyer who will work tirelessly for his clients to obtain the best possible result in each and every case. More importantly, in addition to being a top-notch trial lawyer, Mike is a true gentleman who is a pleasure to work with. I am privileged to have worked along side him on a number of cases, and I would highly recommend him to any one looking for an attorney to assist a loved one in a serious injury case.

I hired Michael Abelson after going to a chiropractor and he adjusted my neck and dissected my vetebral artery and caused 4 strokes . I was 40 at that time with 3 children. Michael was very caring, professional and precise in dealing with my case. He took on my malpractice case when no one else would, and his professionalism, medical team, and specialists were very knowledegable. Michael did not charge me anything up front for all of his hard work and efforts it was based on a contingency basis. He had specialists lined up early into the case and was prepared to go to court to defend and support me and his help was indespensible. Thanks to Michael Abelson ( WA DC) and his amazing team and John Feroletto (Buffalo NY) I was able win my case. Although, it didn't take away the cognitive impairments I still live with, it did provide me with financial relief that I was so grateful for and wouldn't have had if it weren't for Michael and his team. He ultimately gave me and my children a second chance at life, so for that I am thankful and blessed to have called him my lawyer and now a friend!
