auto accident
My wife and I were involved in an auto accident in which the other driver rear ended us. Michael represented us in dealing with the other insurance company. Once we hired Michael, we no longer had to communicate with the insurance company again. He handled everything in a most professional way. Michael kept in close contact with us at every stage and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Ultimately, Michael reached a fair settlement with the insurance company and we didn't have to go to court. It was clear that Michael's extensive experience in similar cases resulted in the insurance company agreeing to a higher settlement than otherwise would have been the case. We both highly recommend Michael to anyone who finds themselves in need of a personal injury attorney.

Michael Fradin Gets the Job Done
Mike Fradin succeeded heroically with a case involving my elderly but very healthy mother being injured by an employee of a corporation, in this case, working for a vast grocery store chain in Florida, with stores throughout the south and southern mid-Atlantic. Although Mr. Fradin lives and works in the Illinois area, he was able to analyze the situation with a fine legal eye and activate an approach that put the corporation on the defensive. Mr. Fradin's defense of my mother, who was permanently injured by the grocery store's negligence, which occurred when an employee dropped a case of food on her while she was shopping, was vigilant. He also found a top Florida attorney who knew the laws of that state. Partnering with him, Mr. Fradin developed a personal injury case that challenged the corporation's usual assumption that they could just roll over people. After multiple attempts by the corporation to delay the case, Mr. Fradin was able to force them into a mediation process. Representing my mother, I was at the table face to face with the attorneys representing the corporation who could not shrink from the human damage they had caused. More importantly, Mr. Fradin, with the assistance of the Florida attorney's inside knowledge of Florida law, was relentless in negotiations to ensure the corporation did not shrink from its obligations to my mother, who had suffered through multiple surgeries and doses of anesthesia, which is extremely damaging to elderly people. After a rather tough and often rude mediation experience, thanks to the recalcitrant corporation, Mr. Fradin was able to secure an agreement that covered all my mother's medical expenses. This was not easy and took will and unyielding negotiations. It was also a well-deserved acknowledgement to my mother, whose wounds never really healed, but who was always grateful to Mr. Fradin.

His ideas expedited victory for our client, and he is a great balance of book smart and practical and measured yet aggressive. If you have been wronged, I encourage you to talk to Michael. He cares about his clients, provide sound, reliable advice and will be taken seriously by the opposing party."

He has a wealth of knowledge on the subject, and he utilizes many outstanding, unique and very creative trial strategies. Mike has an amazing ability to make everyone feel important.
