Since 1980 Michael K. Eidman has been deriving immense satisfaction from working intimately with his clients, developing cases from the investigatory stages all the way to their conclusion. Many firms send investigators to “sign up” clients, but Mr. Eidman personally meets every potential new client. He takes the time to explain the legal process in detail; visits the site of the occurrence; takes photographs; prepares and reviews all documents; goes to court; and handles all communication with the adversary. Mr. Eidman personally returns all phone calls (usually the same day!).
These days, insurance companies, defense firms and lien holders fight extremely hard to avoid paying fair compensation to innocent victims. Mr. Eidman fights tenaciously for his clients, successfully obtaining the best possible monetary results.
In order give his clients this degree of individualized attention, Mr. Eidman has chosen to limit his practice to a few select cases. If he accepts your case, you will have his full and undivided attention.
