Amazing attorney
Mr. Politis was our first call after my husband’s terrible motorcycle accident. This team truly cares about their clients they truly helped us in such hard times and with the dedication and determination of Mr. Politis he successfully got my husband what he deserved and we were able to buy our first home! We will forever be grateful for the work Mr. Politis did in making sure that we could live comfortably after such tragic events took place.

It was my life and ability to work on the line. Mike and Shelley took care of me beyond anything I could have ever asked for. If you know Michael Politis you know his kind genuine spirit and all that work with him are the same…. Just the best. Forever grateful for all they did for me. Truly the best law firm out there.

Excellent Representation
Very pleased with, and thankful for, the representation Michael Politis provided me after my traffic accident. Michael patiently explained my options and his advice in terms and a manner I could understand. Any questions or concerns I had were promptly addressed and I was informed as my case progressed. Michael and his team handled everything, insuring my injuries were properly diagnosed and treated to securing compensation and reimbursements, from day one to the settlement and conclusion of my case. I am sincerely grateful for their dedication and genuine concern for their clients. I highly recommend Michael Politis for anyone in need of legal representation.

They were fantastic!
After my accident I wasn’t sure what to do. My fiancé called Politis & Matovina, and I’m very thankful she did. They made the process super easy and I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again.

Easy process after my car accident
Mr. Politis and his team did a great job helping me through the stressful period after I was in a car accident in Nov 2021. They made the process easy and even worked to get me extra money that they didn't see a penny of.

Total team effort
Michael Politis and his team far exceeded expectations in my particular case . It was through his reliance on the groups prospective that my case was accepted . As I progressed through the entire process I was dealt with in a completely professional manner ! Everyone in the office was pleasant intelligent efficient and seem to have my true interest at heart . I could tell these people actually cared about me as a person and not just another case . I will forever be indebted to Mr. Politis and his staff for the job that they did for me in such a caring and professional way . I would highly recommend them to those seeking solid professional advice

Car accident
Great legal team. Always responded in a timely manor whenever I had questions or needed anything. They made sure I got the care I needed and didn’t settle for less when the insurance company tried to screw me. Strongly recommend

Professional and approachable
Very satisfied with my resolution. Was respectful of my situation and answered all of my ignorant questions with patience. Took a while but I believe that is industry standards - NOT a reflection on Mr Politis and his associates. Will do business again if I ever have the need.

He brings excellence and professionalism like none other, and not only treated me like his number one priority, but he made me feel like family. If you need legal support and the confidence of knowing that your best interests are in the best hands, then look no further.

My experience with Mr Politis was such a positive one, that he is one of the main characters in my Novel & Screenplay.

Great Lawyer!
Michael is a true professional and genuine nice guy. I was surprised to read a couple other reviews but I am sure if he had a chance to explain the situation it would be these clients that were being unreasonable or just saying something negative because maybe he didn't like their case. But people like to say things anonymously so they can't be called out by the truth. My family has used this firm four times with one still open now, and we have never had a bad experience. He is great, his partner Mark is just as good, you can meet them anytime, call any time and the staff are friendly and responsive. Take the time to interview the lawyers and make your own decision - don't listen to these people who hide behind a website.

Response from Michael Politis September 18, 2015
Thank you very much for your kind words. I truly believe that our office provides great client service with excellent results, even in the face of difficult circumstances. There are rare cases that don't work out that way, but you can bet the details of the case are the reason they don't end well, not the attorney or the law firm. Even the best firm cannot make a really bad case any better. It is unfortunate that the overwhelming majority of people that post reviews or comments online about any business are those that are upset or angry for some reason. I KNOW our clients are happy, because they tell me so and keep referring their family and friends for legal help. I just wish more of them, like you, would say so online. THANK YOU for your words. It means a lot.
