I slipped and fell on a staircase. The floor was wet and the lights were out, making the whole staircase very dangerous. My back and knee were injured as well as several bruised ribs. I had to get surgery on my knee.

A lady in my apartment community recommended Michael Lamonsoff to me when she heard what happened. They took care of me, sending a car to pick me up and bring me to the office when I called. 

I was able to talk to Mr. Lamonsoff directly about my case. I was notified of everything that happened in my case. I was always up to speed on it and I loved that. I have already 
recommended Mr. Lamonsoff to several people and will continue to do so.


I came to Michael with a very difficult slip and fall case but because of his knowledge and his staff's excellent case building skills I received the settlement I deserved. I have already referred my friends and family to Michael and will continue to do so.
