Immediately responded back to my calls and when I went into the office I felt the positive vibe of all the people working there. A professional environment that gives you professional results. Thank you MB for offering your well organized services to helping others.
Michael Burgis & Associates really goes the extra mile in fighting for getting their clients the medical attention, benefits and compensation they deserve. Highly recommend this firm for anyone who's suffered a work injury, feels lost and needs an aggressive attorney in their corner.
Matt helped me out with everything! Ask for Matt! He helped make the process go as smooth as it can possible go. He even helped with legal advice outside the case. He responded within minutes. I would recommend Matt and the firm to everyone. Thanks again!
Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases. I first came across his firm through some videos he posted and was impressed by his office staff and his paralegal's understanding of the law as well. Mike's a true advocate for the injured worker.
