Personal Injury Case
Met with Mr. Handcock shortly after scheduling an appointment and he was happy and willing to help with my injury questions when other lawyers were not. The Handcock Group gathered the necessary resources and subpoenaed information crucial to my case. I had a great experience and would highly recommend Mr. Handcock to any of my associates.

well experienced, compassionate and caring family. Best team!
Attorney Mike Hancock is outstanding, friendly and well experienced professional. I was a victim of drunk driver accident and injured. He handled my case, went extra mile with a complicated situation and achieved successfully. He and all the team worked hard to get me the maximum settlement what i deserve. He even cutoff his contingency fee in order to get me more settlement amount. Attorney Claire is hard working, trustworthy and caring. The paralegals updated me the status of my case routinely by email and phone call and responded me promptly for any questions i asked, made me sure they are the best team. All the team worked hard for my case and treated me like a family. I Was grateful and confident to have Hancock Injury Attorney. Thank you so much you all for your hard work, passion and dedication!! If i need injury attorney in the future, it definitely be Hancock and if any family members, friends and anyone who needs injury attorney I would highly recommend to your firm!

Great Job!
Mike, I would like to thank you for the outstanding job you did in getting my auto accident settled. It was done with an unprecedented amount of swiftness that I really didn't expect. My head was spinning when I started to get forms from the insurance company, social security, doctors and hospitals. I know I would not have been able to sort it all out on my own. I also have to compliment Whitney Taphorn who was my contact person with your firm. She was outstanding as far as keeping me informed with the forms I had to complete and handling all the requests that had been dropped on me and keeping me up to date with the progress of the case. Your fortunate to have her in your employ, she is an asset to your firm. I would recommend you and your firm to anyone who is looking for a great lawyer that gets the job done in the quickest most efficient manner possible. Thank you again, John

testimonial in favor of attorney Michael Hancock
Mr. Hancock was recommended to me following an auto accident, caused by another driver, so that I could receive proper treatment for neck and shoulder injuries, especially since I had no health insurance at the time; only car insurance. He was very professional and accomplished what we discussed at the outset. I recommend Mr. Hancock highly to handle personal injury claims.
