Hard working, Honest
Pedestrian accident, settled out of court. He got a good cut of money, but that's the price of using a good attorney. No amount of money is enough for the lifetime injury I have, but Attorney Milavetz's caring and professionalism made the experience as painless as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Milavetz for your personal injury case. God bless.

Helped me and many of my friends
Alan represented me in a car accident case. He did an amazing job. I've referred my friends to him and all have been pleased. The other lawyers in his firm do an excellent job in many different areas of law.

Get's the job done right!
As an attorney I know that if you try to represent yourself you have a fool for a client. When I got injured in an accident I had Alan and his investigator, Pat, help me every step of the way. Even though I was familiar with the process they still took the time to explain what was going on at each point of my case. When it was time to settle my case or go to trial they took the time to guide me to a successful outcome that I could understand. Avoiding trial and getting a good settlement was worth the time, effort and fees involved. I have since referred several cases to Alan, and every case was handled with great personal care and consideration. I would encourage anyone with a legal matter to get the legal advice necessary to help with any type of case. Alan, and his firm and staff will get the job done right.

A Very Fine Choice of Attorneys
My wife had an accident that I called Mr. Milavetz for help in what to do and he gave me the best advice of what to do, and then he handled it to more than our satisfaction. I have used Mr. Milavetz to handle other issues and have always been most pleased by his handling of the matters.

Recommendation for a wonderful, caring lawyer
Alan Milavetz is a wonderful and trustworthy lawyer who will go the extra mile to help you and do what is legally necessary for your case. I felt very confident that he knew what he was doing and fought for me. I highly recommend him.

pleased clients
The Alan Milavetz firm handled our case in a manner that we were very much satisfied with. My wife, me, and our golden retriever were attacked by four pit bull terriers three years ago which was an extremely traumatic event. Alan and his team provided staightforward advice and counsel in a calm and reassuring manner. We were able to return to our previous life with a minimum amount of animus and bad feeling towards the perpetrators. We were satisfied with the amout of the financial settlement and the manner in which it was handled. We would recommend Alan and his firm without reservation. Tim, Elaine, and Honey

Knowledgeable
Found Mr. Milavetz to be both knowledgeable and very capable in acting on my behalf with my auto accident. Was rear ended several years back by a semi. Mr. Milavetz was responsive to my concerns in seeking damages for injuries to me and my auto resulting in a very satisfactory award. I would recommend him highly as he exhibited a high amount of professionalism.

Very uncaring
Alan was very uncaring and all business. He didn't care that there was alot going on with family right at the moment. His sympathy seemed cold to say the least. I thought that he could have gotten me more money for my case, but took the easy way out stating it would cost 20k to go to court so I should just settle and take the money. It seemed like they were always looking for easy cash. I did 90% of the work in my case and when all the bills are paid I might get less than half of the settlement. That is terrible because I was the one with all the pain and suffering and scars .

Endorse Alan
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 31
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Alan is one of the top personal injury lawyers in Minnesota. I've mediated several cases for him and he's always well prepared and a zealous advocate for his client."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I heartily endorse Alan. He is a fabulous lawyer. I referred a case to him because the client was severely injured in a bike accident in Minnesota. The client's father, a prominent local physician in PA, was searching for a lawyer on a weekend and I referred the matter immediately to Alan Milovetz. He responded despite it being an odd hour on a weekend. He accepted the case and began work on it promptly, obtaining a very favorable settlement for the client. When I refer a case to another attorney, it matters greatly to me that the client is well represented and is pleased with the counsel I have recommended. Alan is responsive, knowledgable and compassionate. You cannot go wrong sending a case to him."
