Was able to contact Mr. Cleveland thru Google seach of attorney in my area. Mr Cleveland was kind to allow me to email him with WC case questions. Although he indicated not taking my case, in his busy hours he was so kind to respond back to me in most professional and kind manner.
I was very distraught with my case but was able to find some comfort thru his kindness and professionalism.
He continued to respond back to me with follow up questions even though questions no longer pertains to his area of expertise. One of my question too specific only the client assigned attorney can respond he suggested I pose questions thru AVVO.

I slipped and fell at work a year ago. My back was hurt bad. I reported to my job right away and they sent me to the company doctor. That quack was a joke. He sent me right back to work not even a day off. I was going to work everyday in pain. I would take a lot of pills just to get me through my 8 hrs of work. Finally after 3 months of dealing with the company doctor and no help from my employer I decide to get an attorney. Thanks to Mr. Cleveland I was able to see another doctor. This doctor actually did some tests and saw I was in pain. I had my back surgery a month ago. I'm still recuperating but I feel better already. I just wanted to let everyone know that Mr. Cleveland is a good dude. He's helping me through a tough time and I appreciate it.

I have worked 20 years as a customer service rep with a big company. The constant typing caused me pain in my hands. I reported my injury to my employer but the company doctor said I had arthritis. I couldn't accepted that opinion. My friends and family told me to get another opinion but I had no clue how to do that. So I searched for any attorney in my area and found Charles Cleveland. I was referred to another doctor who did the proper testing and told me I had carpel tunnel. I had my surgery a few months ago and was able to go back to work in a different position so I wouldn't hurt myself again. My attorney said I will get to continue to see the doctor for life and I get to keep my job. I was very happy with the way Mr. Cleveland took care of my case.
