I struggled with injuries related to an out-of-state auto accident for over 18 months until I finally found a surgeon willing to listen to me and my symptoms: diagnosis 2 broken vertebrea and crushed disc amongst other internal injuries. With that diagnosis in-hand, I decided it was time to hire an attorney. Michael was recommended by a local attorney for his expertise in dealing with both Michigan and Florida injury suits. He was very open up-front about the potential journey that may be the result of filing an out-of-state claim and how long it could take. Fortunately, he was able to effectively negotiate with the at-fault party's insurance company armed with the diagnosis and details of the circumstances and was able to settle for the full covered amount in only a few months! He is now working on settlements for my family members also impacted in the same accident. Would highly recommend him!

Attorney Heilmann really went to bat for me on my personal injury. He always kept me informed and answered my questions. At first the insurance company didn't want to pay anything but we eventually settled for more money than I thought was possible.

Prior to taking my case Mr. Heilmann carefully reviewed the facts of my case. Other lawyers had turned my case down. I received the wrong medication from a mail order pharmacy. He convinced my therapist to submit evidence of the injuries which was crucial, and therapists are very hesitant to get involved. A huge plus was his experience with the same pharmacy from a previous suit. Mr. Heilmann is licensed to practice law in the state I live, as well as the state the mail pharmacy is located. He told me at the outset he never takes a case he doesn't think he can win. He told me what to expect in the deposition I gave and kept me abreast of the status during the three year case. He always returned my calls in a timely fashion and gave me a realistic idea of what I could expect at the conclusion of the case which turned out to be exactly the amount he predicted. In addition to receiving the money he obtained for me, he's also a very nice man and it was a pleasure getting to know him.
