This past week, a Florida family announced it had filed a lawsuit against Uber and one of its drivers after a college student was killed in an Uber car accident in Miami in the final days of 2015. This case, as well as a string of other claims from injured passengers across the country, has shone a spotlight on Uber and its drivers.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
