Total confidence and addressed all my concerns
Absolutely incredible representation for my motorcycle crash!! Let me tell you from experience, the crash hurt me physically but the insurance company did the damage. Litigation is a psychologically traumatizing process that digs into your private life and exploits your fears and weaknesses. Michael Beckman was my legal representation and took care of everything and his entire staff made me feel at ease. Unfortunately Mr. Beckman was not my first attorney. I had TWO previous lawyers drop the ball and leave me with NO choice but to find aggressive and assertive representation. That was delivered when I talked to Mr. Beckman and not once did I feel as though anything was lacking. From this moment forward I will always recommend Michael Beckman without hesitation. You must meet his staff and the attorneys before you go anywhere else!! Words cannot express my gratitude for his exceptional performance during trial.

Did an excellent job handling my case
Mr. Beckman and his staff did an excellent job handling my case. It was settled in just over a year's time for the policy limits. His staff is very pleasant. Highly recommend Mr. Beckman for personal injury cases.

Amazing Personal Injury Lawyers. I'd recommend Viles and Beckman to ANYONE that are victims of medical malpractice.
Got a great settlement for me, without the pain and agony of going to court. Paid all my medical bills, and had a lot left over to start my new life!

Great Attorney, Nice Guy...
Michael is an attorney I would highly recommend. He has always been professional and courteous in handling my case. I did not realize how rare it was to find an attorney who treats you with respect and will fight for you to win your case without passing judgement.

Very poor customer service !!!!
After my case was closed and settled I began to get letters and medical bills from facilities and physicians that SHOULD HAVE BEEN paid prior to the closing settlement. I contacted Kayla multiple times and nothing was ever done to assist me in this matter. I attempted to contact Mr. Beckman via phone and was never allowed to speak with him. I continued to attempt to contact this firm, but since I live halfway across the country I am unable to show up in person and get any help. I have had nothing but empty promises and dismissive attitudes from staff. When nobody ever got back to me regarding my NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS by email and phone I continued to call and eventually was just 'disconnected". I would not recommend this law firm to anyone under any circumstance.
