It’s not an uncommon thing at the RGLZ offices to catch a good earful of Michael Glass on the phone with his clients. He has a certain tendency to take as much time as is necessary to explain things to them, and an even stronger tendency to make absolutely sure that the phone call doesn’t end until that client is satisfied with the explanation. It’s just part of who he is.

Brian Murphy Review

Brian is not only compassionate, but he is genuine and fights for his client. Having experience with lawyers in the past (that only wanted my money and made me empty promises) I was hesitant but Brian kept his word and fought for me! I got the outcome I wanted and needed in just a few trips to the court house! He was very reassuring and was reliable. Thanks again Brian! I will recommend you for sure for anyone in need!!!

Review for Michael Glass

Getting into an accident is a very stressful situation. So much procedures to follow and every detail counts as important information. The endless phone calls and many doctor appointments to be made. The feeling of hoping, health wise, that the pain goes away quickly is always the first concern. Michael, I want to thank you so much for making this process easier for me.  Your step by step hand holding guidance through the whole lawsuit, made it less stressful.  I’m thankful for your help and I’m thankful that I was recommended to come to your office to see you.  Happy New Year - Toni Marie N.

Our extreme gratitude to attorney Michael Levine and his staff

Our extreme gratitude to attorney Michael Levine and his staff...I almost don't know where to start--I simply cannot recommend Michael Levine and his staff highly enough. My wife was in a traumatic automobile accident and I didn't know what to do. She was in the hospital (ICU) and I knew I needed a lawyer. Am I glad that I found the most effective and sympathetic legal expert, Michael Levine, to fight tirelessly for us and to patiently guide us through the process.

Outstanding from start to finish

I wish I could give Brian 10 stars, that's how great he was throughout the entire process of guiding me through a lawsuit following a car accident. Having never been in a collision of this nature before, I had no clue how to navigate the legal system to ensure I was appropriately compensated for my injuries. Brian and his rockstar team are not only incredibly personable and accessible, but also knowledgeable about all aspects of personal injury law. Brian always took the time to explain every step of the process to me in whatever detail I requested and you can tell he genuinely cares about ensuring his clients take the appropriate steps to ensure the best possible medical recovery and quality of life. Once I completed treatment for my injuries, Brian was able to obtain me a phenomenal settlement from the opposing party and worked hard to get them to increase their initial offer significantly before we accepted it. Between the medical knowledge, legal expertise, and friendly professionalism I experienced with Brian and his team, I couldn't imagine using another attorney for a case of this nature.

Amazing Lawyer highly recommended

Brian has not only helped me with my car accident case but two family members in their cases . The day I signed Brian on to be my lawyer after my car accident was the best decision I could have ever made. Not only was he kind and professional he handled my case from start to finish with honesty and with my best interest at hand . Every time we had contact he always put my health first and asked how I was feeling and when it came to the case itself he got things done and made sure to fight to get me the best possible outcome. After only a short time we just settled my case and needless to say he got me more than I could have dreamed of in compensation for my injuries and pain and suffering. Most importantly I feel at peace that justice was served and I can finally move on and I couldn’t have gotten to this place without Brian . I will always be grateful to him and highly recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer. When you have a traumatic accident where the damages physically and emotionally will scar you for life you don’t just want a lawyer treating you like a case you want someone who cares about you as a person and that is Brian Murphy.
