Mike Colbach represented me in a lawsuit against a contractor who had severely injured me. Mike was both professional and proactive. From my first interaction with Mike and his team, I knew that I was in good hands. He explained my case and the process extremely thoroughly and kept me abreast of updates as they happened. His team dealt with the insurance companies and gave me tremendous peace of mind as I recovered so I could concentrate of just getting better.

Before you hire a personal injury lawyer, make sure that they are willing to forward the money to adequately pursue your personal injury case.

Court filing fees, expert witnesses and other litigation costs are expensive.

If Mike takes a case, he believes in it.

Mike will invest as much time, energy, and money as it takes to make sure his client has a good result.

Every year Mike spends thousands of dollars in litigation costs. In every case, Mike advance all costs associated with pursuing your case and he does not ask you for a penny until you recover from the other side.

Mike handles all personal injury cases on a contingency basis.

What this means is that he charges a percentage of the recovery. What this means is that he charges a percentage of the recovery. If Mike takes your case, you do not pay anything up front. If there is no recovery there is no fee.

Not all personal injury lawyers charge the same lawyer fees.

Make sure you understand what your personal injury attorney will be charging you and how they base these fees on your settlement as this can really make a huge difference to you.

Some of Mike's Results

Clackamas County jury verdict where the insurance company was refusing to pay before trial. $258,000 jury verdict for sternum and back injury. Allstate made no offers on the case. A Clackamas County jury awarded $7,000 in medical expenses and $250,000 in pain and suffering.

Over $5 Million for car accident for injured motorist. Before he hired me the insurance company would not even pay for his property damage.

$1,750,000 car accident recovery for injured motorist.  Client's final offer before hiring me was $250,000.

$667,000 bicycle accident recovery for injured cyclist. Final offer before trial was $130,000. Jury awarded $667,000. As reported in Portland's Willamette Week Newspaper Cyclist vs. New Seasons

$350,000 motorcycle accident policy limits settlement for injured motorcycle rider. Before he hired me the insurance company blamed him and refused to pay a penny.

$340,000 motorcycle accident recovery for injured motorcyclist - his offer was zero before he hired me.

$339,000 bicycle accident jury verdict for cyclist struck by drunk driver. GEICO's only offer was $17,000, which did not even cover the medical bills.

The right personal injury lawyer can make the difference between being financially devastated and being able to take care of your family's future.

Insurance companies do not give money away. The only way to get fair compensation for your injuries is to force them to pay you. The only thing that makes insurance companies pay is the threat of a big jury verdict.

If you want to get a fair amount, you need a personal injury attorney who is not afraid to go to trial to get you what you deserve.

Many personal injury lawyers advertise themselves as being aggressive and fighting for their clients. Ask them what their last trial was and ask them what their recent jury verdicts were.

If a personal injury lawyer doesn't actively file and try cases, keep on looking for a personal injury lawyer for your case who does, as you will rarely get a fair recovery amount with an attorney who is just working for a settlement.

Hiring a trial lawyer is the only way to make sure you get a fair amount for your personal injury case.

Mike files a lawsuit in most of his cases, as that is what gets insurance companies to pay, and if they don't make a fair enough offer you can take your case to a jury.

Questions? Get Answers.

I make it a point to keep on top of my email. This process can be stressful and I don't want you losing sleep over a question I can easily answer.

I selected Michael Colbach based on his personal attention to my case. When you work with him, you speak DIRECTLY to him, no answering machines, no messages to a sectary or other associates. His office staff are extremely professional, and communicate in a timely matter. Mike is upfront with your expectations on your settlement, the real timeline, when and what to expect... and goes beyond any other attorney would do for you. His fee was less than any other, and I received MORE than any other attorney would have gotten me. -->More
