Highly recommend this company.
Our attorney for our car accident was Dana Hoffman. He was outstanding and negotiated many times to get us a great settlement. I worked closely with Kelly Ann Kelly, the Operations Manager, and she was awesome. She made sure our difficult medical providers were paid along with us. They are so professional and very responsive.

Car Accident
Throughout the time we worked together, everyone at your law firm was kind, patient, and supportive. It was stressful dealing with multiple insurance companies and sorting my medical bills because of the caught accident and how it affected me and my husband as well as my family. I can never feel comfortable riding been in a car accident, which had an adverse impact on me and my husband life , as well as our family. I can’t reiterate enough to you and your firm on how you have taken care of us. through this tragic ordeal we didn’t have to worry about finding a doctor or paying our due to the accident you took care of it all ,Thank you so very much .

A law firm that cares
My wife and I originally went with another law firm to represent our daughter who was in a horrific car crash. We felt that there was not a big enough payout for them therefore they were not doing much with the case. There was a lack of communication the whole time we dealt with that law firm. When I spoke with Attorney Hoffman at Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, helping people was his main focus, not a large payout. Throughout the whole time dealing with Amy the paralegal, she was courteous and prompt in getting us the answers and keeping us informed about the progress of the case. Thank you Attorney Hoffman and Amy for doing a great job.

My Review
I write this review of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk with extreme gratitude for performing excellent service with compassion & care while representing my claim for accidental injury. On a scale of 1-10 I give a 20 for the undivided attention to and for my situation, far exceeded what I expected. From the initial call made from a Google search, I received a call from Heather who was extremely kind to professionally address my concerns with empathy, compassion & respect. Heather made time to explain the legal side while showing priority to my need to fully recover from the injury. At the appropriate time, I was introduced to Attorney Dana Hoffman who as did Heather made time to professionally address my concerns with empathy, compassion & respect. During our conversation Dana made me feel important and created an atmosphere of care & respect. He then prepared me for a recorded conversation with my insurance co that very quickly produced the best financial response per my policy. Heather then introduced me to Amy who was also a top notch professional in managing the multitude of charges from ER to post op treatment. Amy was truly a master at keeping me informed of how much still needed to be done before final settlement, and reaching agreements with the doctors, hospitals, medical service providers & insurance companies involved. Communication was key for Amy to keep me informed as well as my sister who acted as care taker on my behalf. Amy kept us informed every step of the way addressing every bill I received by mail all the way to the distribution of final payment, which your firm graciously accepted less than initially agreed upon. I am eternally grateful for the integrity of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk. You will forever be in my prayer of thanksgiving to God who uses your firm to walk out His love, and justice here on earth.

My impressions of lawyers has taken a giant leap.
I was rear ended in a car accident. Besides the pain and inconvenience, was my fear of dealing with the insurance companies. Mr. Abrahamson and his team were the best lawyers I had ever dealt and I have hired many lawyers in my life. For one thing, his staff is top rate, big shout out to Amy and Sasha who kept me informed the entire way and handled every detail. I am also grateful to the bevy of lawyers that pushed the insurance companies to give me the maximum of each policy I was entitled to. I m not wishing for another accident, but it it happens, I won't let anyone handle my case but these guys.

Results driven
I've had the wonderful opportunity to work with Erik Abrahamson for the last 20 years. Consistency, professionalism and responsive are a few characteristics that come to mind. When looking for an attorney, it can be quite difficult/confusing. Do your research and find "tried and tested" law firms that have consistently been at the top of their field.

Highly recommended
I have worked with Erik and the lawyers in his firm for over 15 years. He has excellent trial lawyers working with him and they always do a great job on behalf of their clients in both the pre-suit and litigation phases of the case. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of a plaintiff personal injury attorney.
