Two years ago I was hit by a drunk driver while walking home from a party in DC. I was very lucky in two ways. The first one being that I survived with minimal injury and the second that I had Michael Abelson as a friend and attorney. I was working part time when the accident occurred so I did not have health insurance. I also held partial fault in the accident so my chances of compensation were bleak. When Mr. Abelson learned of the incident he immediately took my case no questions asked. I have not had much experience in dealing with lawyer, but I think I can say that The Abelson Law Firm, went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did he manage to get me full compensation for all of my medical bills, but I also had money left over to pay for therapy to help deal with any post traumatic issues I had immediately following the accident. I always had an immediate response with phone calls and emails and Michael Abelson always did a good job of explaining everything that was happening and reassuring me he was doing everything he possible could. The consequences of the accident could have definitely hindered potential and opportunities I had for the future, but with retaining The Abelson Law Firm, my life only became richer and more fulfilled. He and the firm were a blessing and I would recommend this firm to anyone!

When a person is injured, their individual ability to seek justice is hampered by the struggle to simply survive what’s happened to them. Any and all energy is focused on rehabilitation and attempting to recover to some sort of decent quality of life…to find a way to go on. Essentially, the victim is terribly weak, vulnerable and frightened, while the process of seeking restitution requires tremendous strength, bravery and tenacity. This is when it is vital to secure the services of an attorney or law firm that will effectively and voraciously fulfill their role as the victim’s legal representative. Michael Abelson is, without a doubt, just this type of attorney. He is not swayed by legal challenges or difficulties. Using his extensive experience, knowledge and expertise, he will relentlessly pursue justice on the victim’s behalf allowing the victim to focus on recovery, confident that they have the very finest legal representation who has their best interests at heart. With much gratitude, I highly recommend The Abelson Law Firm.

— Christa Orsino

Michael Abelson is an outstanding professional and takes to heart the cases that he works on. I have seen him in action and I know that if you are a victim of a serious injury (physical or mental), and Michael is your attorney, you will not have better legal representation. He will do whatever it takes to make sure that you are compensated for any and all expenses…and then some…relating to your injury. He is confidential, warm, brilliant (particularly when it comes to malpractice issues), and there is no case too big or too small to present to him. If he feels that there is the slightest chance to help, he won’t hesitate for a second. Michael is the best of the best. I was very fortunate to have had him on my side.

— Ellen Rogoff

I have had the occasion to work with The Abelson Law Firm, on a personal matter and I recommend the firm highly. My recommendation stems from observing Mr. Michael Abelson with regard to his interactions with me as his client. My well-being, interests, and ultimate success were always on his mind. If real estate is defined to be about location, location, location, then Michael Abelson’s practice is best defined to be about clients come first, clients come first, clients come first. In my case, not only the experience was gratifying but it was also rewarding. The firm’s capacity to delve into the most minutiae of details are key to its success. Recommend the firm highly.

Our experience with Mr. Michael Abelson happened when he represented the family in a civil case in the State of Maryland in 2007. Michael is one of the few people we know whose personality and demeanor project a sense of comfort that judges and jury find very heartening. His charisma combined with sensible legal arguments have proven, in our case, to be very effective tools of persuasion. Mr. Abelson has a human side as well that few people get to see, which in his profession is a breath of fresh air.
