The man that Gets the Job Done .
Hello fellow injured workers!!! My name is Alexander Watkins, And like you I was injured while at work in Michigan. I’m from Houston Texas and was working at a plant when a forklift driver carelessly hit me . Fast forward I was given the run around but so many other attorneys and law firms. When I got in touch with Jeffrey Kaufman and Alex Berman, everything seem to just change they talk to me and came up with a plan to make sure that I get paid. The Michigan system is so crazy but they made for sure I had nothing to worry about one year later I am proud to say Jeffrey Kaufman, and Alex Berman have settled my case and they fought for every dollar I deserved . Thank God For the whole team and ms Jane Zimmerman the assistant I know she was like Alexander is not letting up but she stayed so professional and helped me when everyone was busy or out of the office. I reinsure you my fellow working peers this is the team of Lawyers you want on your side. Thanks again Alex Berman And Jeffrey Kaufman Aka Jeff y’all team is the best.

ALEX BERMAN
Alex Berman is a wonderful Attorney. Very professional and stand on his word. I had a few problems with my work comp and disability case. I promise you when he stepped in I felt so much better. He got my cases APPROVED and I would always recommend Alex Berman. I thank God for him and his staff. Sherry thank you as well I appreciate you.

FIVE STAR QUALITY
Jeffrey E. Kaufman was absolutely superb in handling my case. The first lawyer I hired was unprofessional, incompetent, he lacked communication and did NOTHING with my case for over five (5) years before he decided to be a Quitter!. Not only did Jeffrey Kaufman take over my case (which is VERY RARE to go behind someone else in the law firm business), but he got my case settled less than five (5) months from the time I hired him. I would STRONGLY recommend Jeffrey Kaufman, and anyone else affiliated with the Law Offices of Alex Berman, PC.

Honest advice!
With the advice I received from Mr. Kaufman during our free consultation, I actually decided to represent myself through my workers' compensation case. The terms he suggested worked and I received my desired settlement. This was my first experience with anything like this; he could have sold me on the necessity of hiring representation and forfeiting part of my settlement on legal fees. Instead, he gave me honest advice that allowed me to handle the case all on my own. If he'll do that much for free, I have to assume he would be an even greater asset for hire. Thanks, Jeff.

An outstanding Lawyer
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 always got a return phone call and that was the best thing for me
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.

Got me a settlement I’m really happy with, especially considering workers comp didn’t want to pay me anything
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.

A man of his word
Being hurt at work and not knowing where to turn to i was told of Jeff Kaufman, i was lost he sent me a booklet ,i called him and he told me step by step what would happen . when i needed to speech with Jeff he returned every call even after a member of his families funeral. He was always honest, never gave me false hopes and never sugar coated anything. i would HIGHLY recommend Jeff to anyone who needs great attorney services. I learned to be patient, a comp case takes time and Jeff was constantly on top of my case. Jeff is very trust worthy. On our redemption Jeff drove in a blizzard from his office to Grand Rapids to be there for us when he could have just as easily had a local attorney finish it up. I dont know any words i could ever say to Jeff for helping me get my life back . He is very aggressive for his clients, very attentive.

Jeff gets the job done
Jeff helped me through a lot of hardships. I had a knee injury at work adn they stopped my workers comp. I had two knee surgeries. Jeff was so caring, yet he could get the job done. And Jeff is still helping me with issue even though my case is over. Jeff was smart and knew the law and I was confident in his ability. I got workers comp benefits and disability too. He is unbelievably kind hearted, to the point he would make sure I got to my car safely. Jeff is a very good attorney.

Waisted my time.
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.
Response from Jeffrey Kaufman July 24, 2015
I want you to know how much your experience with our law firm matters and that I want nothing but the best for your case. I am very sorry that you feel your time has been wasted and were upset by my questions. This was done because I wanted to get your issues resolved right away and the defense attorney was on standby. During the process, it was important for me to speak with you and have good communication, so I could best represent your interests. It seems as if we have had a miscommunication and again, I’m sorry that you were upset. I understand your frustration with the litigation process and I am here to make it easier on you. I know the founder of our firm, Alex Berman, has already reached out to you and is also working on your case. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to resolve yours concerns and make it right. - Jeff
