Car accident
Michelle did a fantastic job helping me through my car accident and getting me a fair settlement. I was hit on the interstate by a semi and it totaled my car (his fault). I had a bad concussion and other injuries. She walked me through the process and gave me great advice. She was always available and answered all of my questions (and I had a lot!) as I had never been in a bad accident before. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone I know in a similar situation, as she knows what she is doing!

I would have preferred not to be in the position of needing an attorney, but Michelle made my lengthy personal injury case as light and manageable as possible. While the opposing party prolonged negotiations, Michelle kept me informed, consistently touching base and providing excellent advice at every turn. Michelle was empathetic - genuinely concerned with my wellbeing and my understanding of the details of my case. I felt confident that I was in good hands and I strongly recommend Michelle as an attorney. And she's a lovely person to boot!

highly recommend
Michelle made a stressful experience painless and simple. Michelle performed above and beyond for me and I was very blessed to be referred to her from a co-worker. I had no idea what to expect but I felt at ease and confident every time I spoke with Michelle during my process. Thank you and I definitely will recommend her to anyone in a similar situation,

Michelle changed my life !!!! She worked great at finding me justice when no one had faith in me . She is the very best !
Michelle took my case when no one would . She knew that I had been hurt physically, emotionally and mentally. It took a real woman and very experienced attorney to take my case . Other attorneys said the damage that was done to me was minimal and worth 40 grand tops . I knew in my heart that I was broken in every way after a doctor did a surgery on me that he had no business doing . he took my entire drive mental strength and basically my life from me!! The physical pain was tremendous and still is . Beyond the pain , beyond the damage he did .... Michelle was there for me as a person , not just an attorney. She had faith in me when no one did . No one wants to be involved in medical malpractice cases .... Not even your own doctor . She never gave up on me . All the lawyers who turned me down was a blessing , I got Michelle THE BEST ! She worked so hard for me . It brings tears to my eyes . I knew my case was a very high form of negligence and so did she . My case was worth over a million. There is no price anyone could put on it . No money could ever fix me again . In my mind at one point I wanted to die and give up on life After a Omaha doctor just wanted a pay check. He had no right to even touch me and no knowledge about the surgery he preformed or was even licensed to do so .She got me justice and changed my life .... I cry everyday thinking about her . God gave her a gift to seek justice for a reason and she got it for me ... By the way my case really was a million dollar case .... Just to tell all those other lawyers who turned me down . I love the ausman law firm . I can't even put it into words and make a review for her because she is off the charts !!!! The very best !!!! She has real integrity and empathy. I love u Michelle !!!! She changed my life !!! She used the gift God gave her to help people like me . I can never thank her or God enough ....

Satisfied Client
After a fall at my apartment complex where new asphalt was being put in but they failed to put a barrier in front of the rise at the dumpster, I broke my wrist and had to have surgery. Michelle negotiated with the insurance companies, Medicare and apartment complex and got a settlement with them all for an appropriate amount to cover lost wages and some compensation.
