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.

Never once called to update me on the status of my case. Would ask me questions that HE should know the answe to, because I had told him in previous conversations. When I brought these things up, I was not offered an apology, instead, was given excuses, "Well, I deal with a lot of people." Inexcusable.

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.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
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.
