About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

Michael J. Jordan has dedicated his career to ensuring his clients will make the recovery they deserve. He knows that when people are searching for a law firm to help deal with an automobile wreck or workers’ compensation claim, they aren’t just hurt — they're also scared. They don’t know, or they don’t understand what the future will hold for them. Michael understands that what is also important is not just how the event affects the person who’s been injured, but their whole family. A major workplace injury, and recovery from such an event, has an impact on their spouse and their children. His clients can depend on his counsel to solve the problems and manage them through the complexities of the legal system. Michael is the protector and voice of his clients.

Like everyone in the Steinberg Law Firm these days, Michael has been adjusting to the COVID-19 pandemic by using video conferencing and other technologies to help clients sign documents and agreements so their cases can stay on track no matter what. He also has found that because many courts are closed due to the pandemic, insurance companies have been offering insufficient settlements. Michael responds aggressively to these tactics and plays hardball on behalf of his clients.

Michael grew up in Columbia, attended college and earned his B.A. degree from the University of South Carolina, and received his law degree from the Florida Coastal School of Law. Upon law school graduation, he joined the Steinberg Law Firm because of its long history of dedication to helping injured workers and its strong reputation in personal injury trials. He recognized the importance of the firm’s reputation for delivering proven results for the injured people of South Carolina.

For three years in a row, Michael has been recognized for his legal work in Best Lawyers in America (2016, 2017, and 2018). He also was selected as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in 2014. His trial work has been featured in SC Lawyers Weekly newspaper.

Michael is involved in the legal community. He is a past president of the Berkeley County Bar Association; was named to the Executive Committee of the SC Injured Workers Advocates; and is a member of the South Carolina Bar, Charleston County Bar Association, Berkeley County Bar Association, South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association, and South Carolina Bar Young Lawyers Division.

Beyond his professional affiliations, Michael is committed to service in the greater Charleston community. His dedication to such involvement began while in law school when he volunteered his services in a legal aid clinic. That work helped him appreciate every citizen’s right to a fair hearing. He has continued his service to the community by devoting time to Lowcountry AIDS Services in Charleston and volunteering with other nonprofit organizations, including Kids Chance of South Carolina.

Auto Accident
Michael was a pleasure to work with. He kept things moving as well as keeping us informed along the way. We could not be happier with the outcome and how our case was handled. Without a doubt, if I ever need assistance again, Michael and his team will be our first and only call.

Car accident
Catie and Karen both were very professional. Each responded to my emails and questions in a timely manner. Both are very knowledgeable in the type of case I had. I would strongly recommend using them to people I know.

Great Representation!
Mr. Jordan and his team were extremely helpful in my personal injury and workers comp case. Mr. Jordan even helped me get medical care for my permanent back injury. Michael’s aids were always quick to reply and keep me updated about what was going on with my case. I’m very happy with their work and will suggest them to people I know!

Michael Jordan handled our case in a professional manner. He is very easy to talk with and answered any questions we had so we fully understood. We would also like to say that Bri did a great job keeping us up to date with developments of our case. She is very professional and personable. Thanks to both Michael Jordan and Bri.

Great job
Thank you so much. My attorney Mike Jordan and assistant Brianna Bendik did a great job. Mike negotiated a settlement that was more than double the initial offer. Brianna got docs to me quickly. It's December 20th and Brianna got my check in today. Merry Christmas guys. Thanks again. I highly recommend your services.
