While driving home one night I was injured by a drunk driver in a car accident; I had no idea where to begin to pay for my injuries and vehicle.
After searching and contacting a few of the large publicly advertised firms, I did not feel comfortable and confident that my case would be a priority for them.
Frustrated, I asked a family friend if they could recommend a trustworthy and helpful attorney, without hesitation he gave me the name Michael Bernstein.
A little skeptical still, I contacted Michael's office and explained my situation to him. Once I finished, and without even being hired yet, Michael took the time to explain the steps I should take in finding an attorney to file my case and that my case actually had a time frame it must be filed in. None of this was ever brought up when I spoke to another firm.
I felt confident after just speaking with Michael over the phone and setup a consultation for the next day. Once we met Michael took even more time to explain how the process works, we went over damages, insurance do's and don'ts, documents I needed to obtain, and how long the timetable for the case could be. I never expected an Attorney to break the whole process down like Michael did, he was HIRED!
I could tell Michael went to work right away on my case, because not even a week later I received documents from my insurance company stating the process for had begun. Once my case was in full swing Michael would notify me of any updates and actions taking place and he even gave me his PERSONAL CELL NUMBER so I would be able to call and consult him at any time. After a few months we finally had a breakthrough and I was able to receive some compensation for the accident and my damages. At that point I thought the process was done, but Michael wasn't! Michael believed that I should be FAIRLY compensated for my accident and injures and explained there was a second half to my case.
We are coming up on 2 years for my case and I am still 100% confident in Michael and truly thankful for such and excellent attorney.
I believe that those other firms I contacted in the beginning would have never taken my case this far and fought this hard for my compensation, Michael Bernstein is truly an awesome and tenacious attorney who will do everything in his power to help YOU. I will not goto another attorney after this experience!
