When your luck runs out.
Mike represented me after I was hit on my bike by a negligent, inattentive driver. Being a biker himself, there was an easy connection and he possesses the perfect balance between genuine empathy and rational assessment and advice. He made no promises although his predictions about the likely process and outcomes were always accurate. I was always taken care of and I really felt like I was his priority. His staff, to a person, was exceptionally responsive, kind, and super-competent. I'm fortunate to have had Mike handle my case.

I contacted Mike Laufenberg looking for help for a friend. Because of the nature of the issue, Mike was not able to help directly but took the time to make several calls to help us find someone who could and without any expectation of getting paid for his time. We are very grateful for all of his help!

Great Lawyers
Mike just wasnt a lawyer, he takes pride in every step of his work. I had questions and he answered them so I would have more of a personal understanding of what was going on. Mike it made it easier with every step and gave myself and family closure and a new start. We are forever grateful for Mike and Dan and will never forget them. Thank you both for everything!!!

Good fortune for me to work with Mike Laufenberg...
I am relatively "gun-shy" when it comes to obtaining legal counsel, the day I met Mike Laufenberg helped subside those feelings. I am highly impressed by Mike and his willingness to help me resolve my personal injury claim. Mike recognized my hesitation to retain counsel and treated me with respect and went the extra mile to put me at ease. I was given multiple options on how to contact him when I had a questions and never left me exasperated. He is truly knowledgable on all facets of a personal injury claim. Sadly for me, Mike decided to pursue a better opportunity with another firm, but I would never begrudge anyone for embracing their expanded opportunities. He provided options for me regarding the pursuit of my claim going forward which impressed me even more. Good Luck to Mike Laufenberg! I would have followed you to your new firm if you would have stayed in my community. You will be at the top of my list to contact for representation should I need counsel in the future. God Bless!!

Dog Bite
I was referred to Mike Laufenberg by another attorney and that recommendation was exactly what I needed. Mike was genuinely committed to my well being and to getting a fair settlement for my case. He was always up front and honest about what was going on with the case and in recommending what he thought was the best "course of action" for my particular case. Mike got me a fair settlement and I will definitely contact him in the future should I ever need legal counsel again.

Much better than anyone you'll see on a TV commercial
And he really cares about his clients on a personal level. I met Mike a number of years ago after I was hit by a semi. He represented me and got me a very fair settlement in spite of me not having suffered many tangible injuries other than a couple of gashes and the emotional damage that came along with such an accident. Fast forward a few years to when I was involved in yet another car accident. Similar to my first one, I didn't have many medical bills at all. Because of this I knew that hiring an attorney wasn't the right move this time. However, due to my prior relationship with Mike, I consulted with him on numerous occasions as I negotiated a fair settlement with the insurance company. Mike was incredibly responsive and extremely helpful. We must have exchanged over 30 emails back and forth and every time he would respond within a few hours. Thanks to him I was able to negotiate a much better settlement than what I was initially offered. All this without me having hired him. This really shows a high level of care for his clients. The fact that in spite of being very busy with numerous clients (who have retained him) he still takes the time to help out (as a consultant) makes him truly remarkable. I would 150% recommend him to anyone who has been involved in a motor vehicle accident. Very trustworthy and a great professional.

Took the time to help, even though I wasn't a potential client
I recently had a friend who needed help regarding a workplace accident regarding a negligent third party, and she did not know how to begin or who to call. I called Michael Laufenberg to inquire about his services on her behalf. He listened to my friend's situation and explained that because the incident occurred in Minnesota, he could not represent her. He asked me to have my friend document the incident and correlating injuries so he could better understand the case. She did that, and in the meantime Mike reached out to some of his colleagues who practiced in Minnesota, to gage who would be a good fit to represent her. He ended up recommending an excellent lawyer who will help my friend get the proper representation she needs. At all times Mike was caring and prompt in his responses and the actions he took on her behalf. It was obvious that he genuinely wanted to help her, regardless of the fact she was not a potential client. He helped my friend in a time of her extreme need, with no hope of monetary reward. Just the satisfaction of knowing that he helped someone who needed it. That is a very laudable and all too rare quality in people today. Thank you, Mike! God bless you and your family!

Car Accident
My son and I were involved in an car accident in which we were hit head on by another driver. We both received injuries. The law firm of Laufenberg, Jassak & Laufenberg, S.C., specifically Attorney Michael Laufenberg handled my case. The accident itself was a very scary experience. Mr. Laufenburg made a situation that was overwhelming, into a much more easy one. All contact with the insurance companies, doctors, as well as legal was handled through the law firm. I felt very comfortable with all the staff at the firm. They were very professional and courteous. Any questions I ever had were answered promptly. I was well informed of each and every step in the process. I was at ease having Mr. Laufenberg represent me. I have used him as a resource when looking for legal services for other circumstances. I am truly thankful for the services provided.

Michael Laufenberg was my attorney on this case.I also had several contacts with his assistant who kept me informed. Whenever I felt I wanted to speak to Attorney Laufenberg he was available momentarily. Everything was explained to me in a calm manner in language I could understand. Everyone I had contact with at this firm was kind and respectful. The whole time I felt like I didn't have to worry because the case was being handled.

An excellent lawyer
I have known Mike for many years. He is an intelligent lawyer who is thorough in his work. I have had the pleasure of working with Mike on a case. The one quality that puts Mike ahead of other lawyers is the positive attitude that he shows toward his clients and the excellent "counsel" he provides to them. I endorse Mike unequivocally.

Personal Injury Case
After being injured in an automobile accident, I went to Laufenberg, Jassak, and Laufenberg S.C.. Attorney Michael Laufenberg was my legal counsel. Michael was more than knowledgeable and professional, Michael was personable. Not knowing what to expect from a civil litigation, Michael kept me well informed and up to date on my case. Michael and his staff were always available for any questions or concerns that I may have had. Attorney Michael Laufenberg made sure that my case was complete and accurate by obtaining police reports, photographs and medical records. Because my case involved me being injured at work, Michael Laufenberg also provided me with information on Worker's Comp attorneys. Upon completion of my case, which was settled out of court, I am very satisfied with the settlement amount. Attorney Michael Laufenberg provided excellent counsel and foresight which alowed me to obtain the fair and just settlement from the inurance company. Being an injured party in an automobile accident can be a frightening and confusing ordeal. Michael provided me with the best legal advice that I could have asked for. It is my personal experience that allows me to give a knowledgeable positive review of Attorney Michael Laufenberg. I recommend Attorney Michael Laufenberg for personal injury cases.
