Thank you so much, Michael, for being willing to help me out at a time when I had no one and didn’t really know what to do. This was a new and very unfortunate experience for me, unlike anything I’ve ever gone through. You made every step of the way much more “relaxing” (as it could be) for me because I had full confidence in you that you truly were on my side and wanted to help me through this. Like I told you, I’m a person who doesn’t like conflict, always tries to do the right thing and stay out of trouble. This whole situation was like trouble at my doorstep and like a problem that wouldn’t go away. But — from the moment I met you — you were a blessing to me and someone I felt very comfortable with. You really are a very nice “lawyer” and I feel the lord gave me you! Thank you, thank you for caring, for being so supportive of me, for being by my side every step of the way. Thank you for protecting my self and my interests even as this whole mess comes to a close. I appreciate you as a person, my friend and my lawyer.
I was rear ended on the freeway and suffered an injury to my back. Even though I had to do 8 months of extensive therapy and still suffer some side effects, I could not get an attorney to take my case because my injury was classified as soft tissue damage. That meant they thought I did not have a strong case or there wasn’t enough money involved to be bothered to go to trial. So I took bad advice from those other attorneys and tried to work with the insurance company myself. Two years went by and the insurance company that said they would pay my medical bills in full was only waiting for my statue of limitations to expire, thinking I would not file a law suit and they would be in the clear. I had to file suit on my own and once again I was on the hunt for an attorney. Thank God an attorney who would not take my case referred me to Michael Ghozland. He said “If anyone can help you it’s him”. And he was right. Michael stood by my side for a year. He believed in me and my case. I did not realize how emotionally taxing these situations can be and Michael treated me as if I were one of his family members. He was patient and supportive. I never felt like I was just another client or that he wanted to get the settlement over quickly so he could get paid. In the end we were able to settle. Something I was unable to do for two years prior. I come from a family of attorneys and they were impressed by Michael as well. His attention to detail, strategy, excellent communication and follow up can’t be beat. I only wish I would have known Michael when my accident first happened.
A little over a year ago, I was involved in a traffic accident, a rear end collision; I was the victim. Numerous injuries resulted, a fractured sternum and dislocated collar bone among them. I suffered considerable and debilitating pain from my injuries, and faced a future of doctor visits, insurance company paper work and getting my car repaired. The pain from the injuries inflicted left me overwhelmed and unable to cope with this future, seemingly insurmountable and impassable. I needed help, and I needed it immediately. Michael Ghozland was recommended, and I phoned for an appointment. Unwilling to allow me to travel to his office suffering as I was, Mike came to me. Within minutes of meeting him, I knew he was the right attorney. From the moment I hired him, the fear and stress vanished. Mike took care of everything. He made certain the car was repaired properly. He managed the medical bills and insurance company paper work. Mike handled the claim, and kept me informed as to the status of that claim every step along the way. When I needed reassurance, Mike reassured me. When a settlement was reached, I couldn’t be more pleased. And again, Mike took care of everything; I could never thank him enough. What I realize now is Mike didn’t merely take care of the claim, Mike took care of me. Mike was my light at the end of the tunnel, and I will always be grateful.
I worked with Michael Ghozland for two and half years on my case. He was always on top of my case and always ahead of the defense with getting things done. Sometimes even having to keep the defense on track because of their sloppy processes and heavy workload. I felt very confident in everything he said and he always gave me truth and honesty. In my case there was no dispute as to fault, so no win or lose, but he was honest with me on what type of settlement we could expect. I followed his advice and we were very close to his expectations. I was very happy with the settlement and would definitely use Ghozland law again and highly recommend them.
