Gifted and Rare
Attorney Michael Flanagan, was very open and up front with me during the whole process. When other lawyers turned my case away he stuck with me, he didn't give up. He showed respect, professionalism, and concern, not just for the outcome of my case but for my well being also. In this world today, its difficult to find a stand up lawyer. But, Attorney Michael Flanagan is definitely someone that i will recommend to be the voice for you in the court room!!

Excellent service
The service that Mr.Flanagan provided was very professional as I went going through the court procedure he guided me every step of the way. He made sure I was aware of what was going on how he expected it turn out. I won my case and if I ever needed another attorney I will be calling him I highly recommend him!

Michael Flanagan handled my personal injury case with ease. I found him after one attorney refused my case and another had dropped my case because it was a small personal injury case. He was professional, experienced, thoughtful and personable. He handled my case without delay and I am happy I hired him to represent me. In my opinion, he is one of the best. He works diligently for his clients and provides excellent results.
