The Michigan Worker Comp Lawyers are an excellent choice if you are dealing with Worker's Compensation case. The Senior partner is Alex Berman who has over 35 years of experience in handling worker's compensation cases. Initially, I got upset that I felt I wasn't being kept up to date on my case. I will say they were down a member of their team with a medical issue. Once I voiced my concern to Alex that I needed to be kept in the loop of my case I was assigned a different attorney. I was appointed Jeff Kaufman, and he did an outstanding job keeping me in the loop of the case via emails or phone calls! Jeff went way above and beyond what was necessary of him to help bring my case to a close! Jeff showed real compassion to my situations the entire time dealing with my case and was able to bring to a close before losing my home and vehicle! He did work that should have been done by the opposing attorney to help speed up the closing of my case. I give their firm and Jeff a 5-star review and rating. Lastly, he offered for me to keep Intouch if I have any issues or other legal questions while now I go through my social security disability process which another firm is handling. I feel Like I formed a friendship with Jeff going through all of this.
On another note not related to this firm but worker's compensation cases in general. It is a long process anywhere from 1-3 years I have heard of from others. The workers best intentions are not in mind of the opposing company. The independent medical examiners are a joke and only out to nail you and protect the company. They say whatever your comp company wants the to say in my opinion. It's a dirty corrupt system, and you only have big business and politicians to blame. Just Jeff and his firm they will protect you and be patient. Follow their advice, and I hope you come out also with a good settlement.

I had a work comp suit. I was having problems with my employers. I got two knee replacements and they were unwilling to help me. So I was looking for back pay from work and medical payment. My wife had looked on the internet and saw the Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers, Alex Berman's firm, and that's how I ended up with Jeff Kaufman as my lawyer. I liked him very much. He always returned my phone calls. He was a straight shooter with me and we were on the same page with everything. We discussed every aspect of my case and he advised what was a good and bad idea as far as what he could do to get me the best outcome. Everything worked out with my case thanks to Jeff. I'm very happy with the settlement me got me. But the biggest thing to me was that I always got a returned phone call and the communication was great. Knowing what's happening with your case is a big deal to people who are injured at sitting at home. I'm really happy with the firm. I'd definitely use Jeff Kaufman again.

I was injured in a car accident while I was on the job. I tried to handle my work comp by myself but it got too hard, because they started turning down my medical claims. So I got a work comp lawyer to help me - Jeff Kafuman. He was really nice and easy to get along with. He always got back with me with all of the answers I needed. Whatever medical bills that came to me, he told me to send to him and he would take care of them. It was really nice knowing he was there, so if there was something I needed, I could just call and ask. Jeff was very professional and helped a lot. He got me a settlement that I'm really happy with, especially considering workers comp didn't want to pay me anything.

I have known Jeffrey for many, many years now. Throughout that time, I have been continually reminded of what a great lawyer he is. His skills as an attorney are second only to his genuine compassion for and understanding of his clients. Whenever I have a question about Worker's Compensation or Social Security, I go straight to him.

I’ve worked with many workers comp lawyers over the years. Its difficult to find one like Jeff – he promptly returns calls and develops strong client relationships. He’s not only tops in his field but he is a great listener and truly strives to protect injured workers. I endorse this lawyer.
