"Jeff believes all injured workers need to be on equal footing with insurance companies and employers, and he will fight to secure their rights when their work comp benefits have been delayed or denied, so they can make a proper recovery. We're thrilled that he has been honored by Super Lawyers," Berman said, noting Kaufman's former client, Rose Giordano, of Macomb, Michigan.
Said Giordano: "Jeffrey Kaufman handled my husband's workers compensation case. They cut off his workers comp benefits. I was so worried about having to call a lawyer. What if they couldn't do anything? What if my husband didn't get his benefits paid? He was the breadwinner in the family. Jeffrey made me feel like everything was going to be okay. He comforted me, and told me not to worry. I trusted him. I knew he was doing a good job and I eventually stopped worrying, because he took care of everything. I can't say enough good things about him. I'm very satisfied with what Jeffrey has done and how he responded to us. Every time I called, he called me back right away. Jeffrey never had me wait. He's a very nice man and I would do more business with him any time. We're going to have him as our lifetime lawyer."
