Social security approval
This is a excellent lawyer for social security cases. They reviewed my case then accepted it and won. We had no back pay due to the deal we took but it is better than nothing and definitely worth it. Also I'd like to give a big thank you to Amanda for all the help!!!

Lawyers who care and get the job done.
Mr. Fulton, Mr. Barnhart and the legal team have done a great job representing me in my worker's compensation case and my Social Security case. Amanda is amazing, she listens and is very patient. I received a TBI and really was not who I use to be and she went out of her way to do anything to help me with what I needed to do, like getting the paperwork done and highlighting things for me. She listens, I would jump all over the place, but she was always understanding. I highly recommend giving Fulton Law Office a call if you find yourself injured at work and don't know where to turn. You can rest assured they have your back. They made me feel like I did matter, when the explorer made me feel like I didn't. It is important to get a legal representative before you go to your first hearing, do not go alone!

Review of Phillip J.Fulton
I have had Mr. Fulton as my attorney for my two worker’s compensation claims. He is very professional and knowledgeable of the worker’s compensation laws. He was able to get my claim reactivated after 12 years when the BWC fought to keep it closed. Thus allowing me to obtain the medical care that I needed. I have referred a number of people to Mr. Fulton to help them with their claim.

Mike Dusseau and Amanda Fluty
My workers comp case started just a little over 2 years ago. I hired the firm on the spot and due to feeling comfortable with Mike's abilities and his explanation of the process. Mike and Amanda have been very very helpful and patient with any questions or issues that arise. Paperwork, hearings and emails have all been handled professionally without a doubt. But at the same time friendly and down to earth, and willing to help wherever they can. My case is still ongoing and I have received detailed explanations of what is currently happening as well as what will happen down the road. I'm very pleased working with this firm and I would without a doubt recommend them to anyone that would have an unfortunate situation like myself.

Mr Fulton and Staff
I would highly recommend Mr. Fulton and staff as they have gone above and beyond to try to make sure all paperwork was filed properly and my family was awarded all they should as the former employer wasn't completely cooperative. They have made many phone calls and filed many forms of paperwork for us. When I've called their office, I've received prompt and courteous attention. When we went to hearings, they were well prepared and helping us understand what was happening. Their remuneration in my opinion was not nearly as good as it should have been for the work they did on our behalf. Thank you is not enough !

A very professional experience.
I called Fulton Law after having been injured at work and then fired. They were very friendly and informative. I was represented each step of the way, and all my questions were answered in terms I could understand. I certainly recommend Fulton Law for any BWC claim.

My workers compensation attorney
I had previously had a different attorney who I fired because I couldn't get to call me back. I then went to look for another attorney and found Mr. Fulton. Mr. Fulton takes time to talk with me about my case and his office staff are wonderful. I feel heard when I have concerns. Prior to hiring Mr. Fulton I was constantly concerned that I had no support. His staff (Amanda) have been emotionally supportive which I believe is above and beyond what is required.

Phil Fulton
I have never actually met Phil but I know that he has fought for me and other clients not only at the Commission but in other arenas as well. Nothing goes quickly or even in a timely manner with the BWC but that is not due to the attorneys its due to the bureaucracy. I am very satisfied with my attorney, Michael and his assistant Amanda. I would be lost without them. I appreciate everything they do for me. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is need of an attorney.
