Michael represented me when another firm felt they were unable. I was hit by a car while driving my motorcycle. The police report was not helpful in my case. Michael pursued against the odds and found the truth I needed to be successful in winning my case. His diligence and hard work is why I will be proud to refer him to my friends and family.

A real down to earth man that I appreciate for going the extra mile to prevail in my case. I wouldn't just recommend anyone to him because not everyone deserves a man like that on their side. But to those good people that truly need support should, consult in him.

I came across Michael Cefali's info on a Facebook local group and before I knew it, everything was handled, magically and completely. Michael guided me through what should have been tedious steps and paperwork, doctors' appointments and legal corridors. He was truly my guardian angel and I recommend him highly.

If you find yourself in a tough time, Mike can make your life easier. Dealing with insurance while your trying to recover, is one of the crappiest things to have to deal with. Mike took care all of that for me and then some. He’s professional and dedicated to his customers. We communicated very frequently and I felt that “impending doom” wasn’t going to happen to me with Cefali and Cefali representing me.
