TOP 10 LAWYER OF GEORGIA
To keep it simple, Michael G. Kaufman and Monika Baez were not only superbly professional and competent, they really cared.   Usually when you need a lawyer that deals in resolving a personal injury matter you are in a stressful situation. This was the case for me. When I first spoke with Michael and his assistant Monika they listened to me,they gathered information regarding the case and then they explained the options and my odds of having a favorable outcome in easy to understand language. They explained the fess they would get and the possibility of having to reimburse the insurance company, this was so that I were well informed.   During the process, Monika, aka superwoman, kept me informed of the progress of the case and when and what would be happening each step of the way. She went above and beyond the call of duty and spoke with me frequently to ensure I understood what was going, or to gather a signatures or just to check in on me. She is truly remarkable. In my opinion, Kaufman Law, P.C.’s endless client care and attention to detail made my recovery less stressful and the settlement they negotiated with all parties was well above my expectations. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants premier legal coverage and assistance in trying times following personal injuries. So, if you are in need of a good, extremely kind, and exceptionally competent lawyer you should hire the lawyers at The Law Office of Kaufman Law, P.C.

Motor vehicle accident
I contacted Kaufman Law after being hit an intersection. My brother found their information and provided it to me. After the police report was created I reached out to Kaufman Law to see what my next steps should be. Everyone was very kind and detailed with instructions. They assisted in finding me a chiropractor for my injuries sustained from the accident as well as consulted with the insurance company of the other driver when they would not cooperate with us. Kaufman checked in regularly to see how I felt physically and mentally. If I ever had a question someone from Kaufman would reply within 72 hours (24hrs most of the time). Kaufman often sent paperwork that questioned my satisfaction with my attorney and ways I could improve their services and I was always pleased with the way my case was handled. I would absolutely hire Kaufman Law again and recommend them to anyone in need of a competent, caring lawyer.

Vehicle accident
Was involved in a vehicle accident where they hit me. This being my first accident I didn’t know what to do or who to call but I’m glad I called Kauffman Law Firm! Not only did they help me with my appointments but they also asked on how I was doing from my mental and physical health. Thank you once again Michael Kauffman (attorney) and Ana Galindo (paralegal)!!!

Personal Injury Case Review
Kaufman Law was super helpful in helping me settle my car accident injury case. Mr. Kaufman did a great job at negotiating with the insurance company to get me the best settlement I believe I could get as well as Monika Baez (paralegal) helped throughout the process to keep me informed and helped navigate the whole process with the insurance companies. I could not imagine doing it without both of them. The value they bring with their expertise and professionalism saves a major headache in a stressful situation! I highly recommend Kaufman Law for your personal injury case needs!

Would recommend as personal injury lawyer
Michael and Monika took very good care of us after our personal injury due to a car wreck. They kept us in the loop and made sure we knew what was going on with our case. They really made an effort to check in on how our physical therapy was going and made us feel like we were valued clients. I would definitely use them again.

Would recommend as a personal injury lawyer
I’m very pleased with how Michael handled my case and the outcome. My girlfriend and I were involved in a rear-end collision which totaled her car and cause great injury to her and myself. Michael and Monika were with us every step in our recovery and then made sure we got the money we deserved! Would 100% use them again.

Amazing Lawyer
Michael Kaufman and Ana Galindo worked diligently on my behalf. I’ve worked with other attorneys in the past who did not accomplish anywhere near as much as Kaufman Law. They took their time reviewing my case and fought hard to obtain an excellent settlement for me. I cannot recommend them enough.

Highly Competent Personal Injury Law firm
Having contacted Kaufman law immediately when I was seriously injured due to the negligence of truck driver who hit me from behind at over 70 mph while riding my bicycle on a rural road in South Georgia. From day one this firm not only protected my rights but also times managed over $200,000 to medical provider services which included out of network orthopedic surgery and nearly a year of post operative physical therapy. The team at Kaufman Law knows how to reduce stress over prolonged periods of time, in my case it took over 2 years, I was able to obtain the highest quality service providers possible and have all my expenses paid without any impact to my credit plus awarded a fair amount for pain and suffering. I never forget the constant degree of caring and detail to attention, thank you all very much.

Professional
I was referred by another client of Kaufman Law after my car accident in 2018. Kaufman Law made sure I could complete physical therapy by providing me with a lien holder when I could no longer work at my new job (at the time) due to my injuries. They were always able to answer my questions via phone. Although my accident was settled in 2019, a few months ago I received a letter from my insurance asking for $2000+!!! I contacted Kaufman Law and they were there... fighting for me again. Despite my case being closed, Michael Kaufman and my paralegal Monika resolved that situation. You never want to see a lawyer or suffer from a car accident, but I am glad that Kaufman Law was there and allowed me to focus on my injuries.

Wonderful
Ana and Michael were awesome and very transparent. They worked hard for my case and even wiggled and pulled some strings to get me settled faster than expected. Ana is a mind reader every time I was about to call I would get a text or call from her. Great communication I would recommend them to anyone!

Great law firm
Kaufman Law helped me through my settlement process, in a timely and professional manner. Both my attorney, Charlie Rutter and the paralegals who worked with my case, were wonderful. Edgar helped tremendously with getting my medical bills adjusted, reducing the total amount. He explained the process in a concise and clear manner. Keeping me informed through each step. Brooke consistently advised me of changes, contacting me immediately when the settlement was finalized. They definitely went the extra mile and increased my final settlement amount, due to their tenacious and diligent work. I am more than grateful and happy with the outcome.
