Michele and the staff at Injuried Worker's Law Firm are always responsive and will take the time to explain legal terminology in plain English. She is not a pushy lawyer and prides herself on doing the best for the client.

Michele was very helpful to me while handling my worker's compensation case. If I had questions I would email her paralegal Stephanie and she would run them by Michele and then get back to me with in a day or two with my answers that would put my mind at ease about what was going on. I would recommend her highly to any friend or family member. With her experience in workers compensation cases she won me a settlement for which I am grateful for.

Does not see you get the medical care you need. Did not report the kraft lawyer for calling me, telling me I had to resign from my job. In fact she said I had to . They have put off the hearing date 3 times . All the while ,I sit unable to work, or even able to look for work. Several other reasons.

Michele took the time to listen to my accident. She proved to be invaluable in the settling of my case with the insurance company. I didn't even need to hire Michele. Her advice allowed me to represent myself.
