Trusted, excellent in service, and well-respected attorney
We found Attorney Brett Blumstein February 2010 through an extensive research of someone who could handle my problematic case for OWCP/FERS (federal) retirement. I was in a difficult situation, I suffered so much disappointment and depression. Thank God I found Attorney Blumstein. Attorney Blumstein kept reassuring me that we would win the case throughout the entire process. After about 9 months, we won! He went above and beyond what was expected and I was well taken care of, it was amazing. 2018, we hired Attorney Blumstein again, this time for my husband’s OWCP/FERS retirement case. We submitted his documents and won 6 months later. Attorney Blumstein’s professionalism and service that he provides for his clients should be highly sought after, he is a blessing and highly recommended by our family.

Fantastic Experience, Very Proffesional
I've had experiences with other firms, but Mr. Blumstein and associates have forever changed my perception of what is to be expected from a Law Office. I was so impressed with the individual attention, responsiveness, professionalism and the overall knowledge and services provided to me. I truly believe they cared about me and my situation which was really nice during a difficult time in my life. I am incredibly grateful for finding this firm, I hope I never have another need for a lawyer, but if I do, there is absolutely no question he's my Lawyer for life. Very impressed, and would recommend him to anyone. Many Thanks to Brett and crew!

THE Guy for Workplace Injury and Workplace Rights
It can be really difficult to find an attorney who handles worker's compensation and worker's rights case for Federal employees but Mr. Blumstein handles both. He gives his client all the information needed to make an informed choice, even if the information is not what I wanted to hear! He does what he says he will do and I am very satisfied with him.

One of the Good Ones
I was referred to Mr. Blumstein by a friend for a work injury related matter. He was very personable, knowledgeable, and patient with me while he answered my questions and guided me through the process. I am really glad that I choose his firm to for help.

Mr. Blumstein is an excellent attorney. His professionalism and knowledge in his field of law surpasses any other attorney I know working in the same field. His ability to communicate well with clients really shines.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Blumstein is an excellent attorney and a pleasure to work with. He and his staff were on top of every aspect of my case from beginning to end. He explained each and every step of the process in a concise manner and made me feel at ease each time we spoke. He was happy to answer the plethora of questions I threw at him and handled everything. His professionalism really stood out. He exceeded my expectations as an attorney and was instrumental in accomplishing a superb result for me!

Knowledgeable, Dependable and Kept me informed every step of the way!
He worked tirelessly for the last 3 years on a Federal Workman's comp case and retirement. He was knowledgeable on who to contact and the required paperwork. The Federal Government would not return calls or letters until I hired Mr. Blumstein. I received more than I expected. I couldn't find an attorney that handled Federal Workman's comp cases in WI. I am truly grateful for his help.

We've consulted this Atty (Brett Blumstein) through phone asking if he could help us to re-open my husband's case in the Dept of Labor. He seemed very nice on the phone, as he was able to explained things about the case of my husband, so we kind of trusted him that he would be able to help us to get what we deserve. Upfront, this law firm asked for a $1000 down payment to start the case. There you go, we gave them the money through money order. Take note, our communications are both through emails and phone calls. One time, they called us telling that they need my husband to undergo an Nerve test (this test is very expensive), we consulted our physician about the test, but our physician told us that the test is useless because it only detects major nerve damage which is in my husband's case according to our physician won't apply to him. This firm force us to do this test despite of our explaination because according to them, the nerve test is what their contact doctor from Oklahoma needs. After the test done, they want my husband to fly to Oklahoma to meet their contact doctor there. At this point, we've kind of lost trust of this firm, so we've decided not so pursue our case using this firm. Another thing, every emails and phone calls that we made to them such as asking questions, and case follow-up we've got charged for it. Overall, our $1000 downpayment was gone for phone calls and emails charges. They did not do anything about the case!!! This is something that you guys need to think about if you hire this firm.

Response from Brett Blumstein July 29, 2019
Unfortunately, due to OWCP's rules, there are very few doctors (or attorneys for that matter) who know how to write reports for federal workers compensation. And the ones that exist can be expensive. So we try to work with doctors who know what they are doing in this field and are reasonably priced. If our doctor's say they need a test to determine a medical diagnosis, we are not in a position to tell the doctor otherwise, we work with them for their expertise and their success in dealing with the Department of Labor's strict rules. I wish we could have had the opportunity to continue here, while OWCP cases can take a long time, we have had great success in these types of cases. Furthermore, we do what we can to keep costs low compared to other firms who handle federal workers compensation. I'm sorry you did not have a good experience with us.

Very Damaging Experience
I was referred to this attorney for time critical and expert legal assistance with a serious claim involving a death. This was several weeks ago. I worked with their firm in a due diligent manner. Until the last few days, I would have agreed with the many positive remarks made by other reviewers above. But, this attorney wasted my time for precious weeks, offered his representation, and then dropped out at the last minute, leaving me in a hopeless situation, when everything pertinent was given to him about the case up front as per his requests and consultation with me. This is beyond a disaster and I have lost previous time in getting my matter handled. I hired the attorney but he then delayed in processing the payment, and then he dropped out. He had every opportunity to vet the case details timely and did not, or whatever he did do has made no sense and is entirely reprehensible in my view. This is my experience of dealing with this attorney.

Response from Brett Blumstein July 24, 2018
Sometimes, when an attorney initially receives a call from a possible client, after receiving more information you find out that there is no way that you can help them. It is unfortunate, but at that point, your option as an attorney is to either take the client's money and fight for a case that you don't believe you can win or explain that due to new information, it is not in the interest of the client for them to hire you. I am sorry that this person felt that they had a bad experience in dealing with my firm. I only wish them well and although I am not sure what I could have done differently in this scenario, I will always strive to do my best as an attorney in the future.
