Long Beach Personal Injury Lawyer Michael Waks
Great Reviews From Our Clients
We’re always humbled by the amazing feedback from our clients. You can be confident that we’ll fight for you.
” I’m convinced that if you looked throughout the entire state of California, you would not find a better PI attorney then Michael Waks. In the summer of 2018, my elderly father was involved in an automobile accident. He sustained multiple serious and life threatening injuries and I knew we were going to need help. I had no clue what to do, or who to contact, so I turned to the internet to find a PI attorney. After reading all the stellar reviews on Michael, I decided to make an appointment. I’m always a little skeptical when a business has ALL 5 stars and glowing reviews, but in Michael Waks case, it’s all true! From the time I walked into his office and explained the situation, I could see the fire ignite within him. He was so eager to help us in every possible way and he really made me feel like he would do everything in his power to help. Well, we just settled our case and I am happy say he did not disappoint. He was on top of every aspect of our case the entire time and was in constant communication with us. He was so caring and very resourceful in getting our needs met. Not sure at what point it happened, but Michael went from just being our our attorney, to being our attorney friend. The best part is he made sure my dad will be able to afford the care he needs for the rest of his life and that means the world to me. The rest is just icing on the cake… “

I would give attorney Michael Waks 10 stars if I could. It’s not only my case that is in his hands, but my heart is as well. My case is extremely delicate in that my son’s life was lost. From our very first meeting, Michael was very compassionate, sensitive, and determined to do the right thing for my family. He’s resilient and experienced, but he’s also a caring person, and that’s very important to me. Michael’s responsiveness, informative updates, and trustworthy character have made this painful process as easy as possible for me to go through.

I was in an auto accident that left me with a brain injury. The injury was not resolving itself and I knew that I needed help. I searched the Internet for an attorney who knew about brain injuries. I was looking for someone knowledgeable and who would work for me instead of working in volume. Quality and knowledge made the difference. Mr. Waks dug in to both help me with the best medical care, and as it turned out, the best legal representation. All I can say is that I am more than happy with the settlement and how Mr. Waks got us to this point.
– Robert Kittel
Michael represented me in a personal injury case and I can’t recommend him enough. From the very first consultation he made sure that I was always aware of my options and up to speed with every aspect of my case. He answered all my questions and used his experience and expertise to help guide my decisions instead of trying to make them all for me. He not only ensured that the settlement I received was more than enough to cover all my bills and expenses but he also made sure I had piece of mind and would be taken care of going forward. Going through an accident that results in a serious injury can be a scary thing so it’s good to know there are people out there like Michael who are genuinely concerned and willing to help.
– Eric G.
Michael Waks is an outstanding personal injury attorney. He works at a fast pace, always ahead of the ball game. He’s committed to his clients to the end. I couldn’t believe how fast he was able to resolve my case. I also couldn’t believe how much money he got for me. I highly recommend Michael Waks if you need a quality personal injury attorney.
– Brenda Contreras
Michael Waks was referred to me by my sister-in-law when she heard I was in a head on auto accident.The driver of the other vehicle walk away from the scene (literally) This attorney took my case which lasted 15 months and he fought to the end which got the maximum settlement! Michael Waks is on top of his game and will not let you down and communicates with you the entire time of the status. His staff is most professional and I will recommend him to my family and friends.You can place your faith and confidence in him. One Super lawyer, I agree!
– Stella W.
I got into injured in an auto accident while down in California but I lived in another state and didn’t even know where to begin the recovery process. Michael Waks took everything into his own hands and made this process a piece of cake. All I had to do was focus on my recovery and sign some paperwork. He took care of the rest. I am so beyond please with his assistance and I highly recommend you to his office if you are ever in need of a personal injury attorney. He is friendly, truly cares about you and your situation and doesn’t mess around. I will definitely call him if I am ever in need of his help again.
Michael Waks is a 5 star attorney. Michael treated me like I was a part of his family. He helped me throughout the entire case. His assistant Maira is the most helpful person. They both took very good care of me. I highly recommend Michael Waks to take your case. It was an honor having him as my attorney, I’m really grateful.
– Angel P.
Waks is awesome!!! I was recently represented by him, and I’m beyond content with his services. Michael is very professional, attentive, and maintains great communication with you. Most importantly to me, Michael genuinely cares about your situation. Michael has represented other members of my family as well and they are also very satisfied. HIGHLY recommend MICHAEL WAKS!!!!
– Alberto N.
Mr. Waks was straightforward and direct. He eased the accident/claim process for me. He found a doctor and a physical therapist that were willing to work on a lien, and when the time came, he negotiated with all of the providers to lower their charges. Ultimately, what was a stressful process was resolved to the best possible outcome. I’m grateful to Mr. Waks and his staff for helping to resolve a difficult situation. Thanks!
– Rose L.
I was in a major car accident December 29th 2018. Michael was referred and stepped in. I was in Cedars-Sinai for 20 days and then moved to California rehab for a month and then to Beverly Hills rehab for an additional 6 weeks. Michael stepped in and took total control and taking care of my situation as the other party was a drunk driver. I will always appreciate everything Michael has done for me on my behalf. His office was so professional and he was so clear and kind and to the point. I have never had such a caring attorney. He is the best of the best.
– Marion P. Sheehan
I would recommend Michael Waks to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer. Mr. Waks helped me in two different cases. He was there all the time, not an assistant, he was there step by step for me and my family. He is upfront of what he can do for you. Michael Waks is the “BEST”.
– Sharon H.
Mr.Waks is a phenomenal lawyer. He thrives to get you the best results. I have used him two times. I would definitely recommend anyone to use him. Him as well as his assistant are very professional.
– Ty P.
I would give him six stars as my attorney, Michael represented me on a personal injury case. Riding my bicycle on May 23, 2014 a car struck me causing me to fly over the vehicle landing on my right shoulder. Fortunately a specialist was able to restore my right shoulder although it will never be the same. I am pleased with the settlement awarded to me and highly recommend Mr. Waks to anyone faced with any legal issues. His professionalism and the way he treated a pure pleasure.
– William M.
I highly recommend Mr. Waks to all friends and family. Mr. Waks is intelligent, proactive, fast moving, aggressive, committed, and we were especially impressed with his knowledge of the law. My mother and I just closed a personal injury case with Mr. Waks and he did a fantastic job representing us. Mr. Waks and his team are amazing. I love his secretary. I love it when I call, she knows exactly who I am. It makes you feel welcome and special.
– Yang & Mina
Attorney Waks is the best and very down to earth personality…He is not afraid of insurance companies and really fought for me. I am happy with his services and the settlement of my case. Thanks Mike!
I was actually recommended by the doctor who was doing my therapy after my car crash and he was telling me how other lawsuts his clients had took up to 2-3 years to get settled. And since I’ve never been in a auto accident that I needed therapy for or a lawyer, I took his advise and went to go see them and it literally took less then 6 months to do. I’m so happy and pleased and would recommend my family and friend to him.
– Arthur V.
Michael Waks is a great attorney. With all the other great reviews on here, I took a leap of faith by calling Michael at the hospital to represent me. He was very kind and understanding of my situation when I got into an auto accident. At the time, I just moved to Long Beach, CA from St. Louis, MO and was only living here for 2 months. Michael and his Legal Assistant Maira Flashey did a great job of following up with me in a quickly timely manner when I email or call for updates on my case. I highly recommend Michael as your attorney if you are new to the Long Beach or Los Angeles area.
– Calvin J.
Mike handled my auto vs bicycle accident to a very satisfactory settlement. He exhibited the necessary experience required of a personal injury attorney. His considerable legal knowledge aided in my recovery. He kept my posted with the progress of my case. Also, he moved my claim quickly toward conclusion. I would recommend him to anyone required legal assistance in an accident case.
– Cliff N.
I’ve had an Attorney before and I had a horrible experience but when I went to Michael D Waks I knew he was going to make this pain free and less stressful for me. He did a great job handling my case and with the end results I am very happy, he definitely knows his stuff. Also his assistant Maira was a great help, she is very sweet and answered my questions when I would call. Thank you Mr.Waks.
– Cynthia A.
Our Child Caregiver was in a serious car accident around Canoga Park in the valley and her car was totaled. Thank goodness our kids were not in the car at the time and she was not seriously injured.
Since she is not originally from the United States and doesn’t have much familiarity on how to handle the situation, I helped her and hired Michael who took her case.
The plaintiff claimed falsely that he had a green light when in fact he turned right on a red in front of our caregiver. Since it was her word against his we were not expecting a favorable outcome. She spent time in therapy and lost her car, which only had liability insurance. Very sad outcome.
Then Mr. Waks turned everything around. He managed to get all of her medical bills paid, emergency room treatment AND managed to get her a check for the full value of her car!
Unbelievable turn around and amazing results given the circumstances. We are amazed at the legal abilities of Mr. Waks and his law office. If you are ever in an auto accident and need help getting compensated for your injuries and/or property you MUST call Michael Waks. What he did was absolutely terrific and unexpected.
Also, keep in mind that this accident was in the San Fernando Valley in Canoga Park while Mr. Waks’ law office is based out of Long Beach. Do not worry if you have a case that is not near Long Beach. As you can see, he can successfully represent you wherever you are in Los Angeles or Socal.”
– Doron K.
I recently used Michael Waks as my injury attorney and I must say without a doubt that he was VERY PROFESSIONAL and ALWAYS got back to me whenever I called or emailed him in the same day. I have never had to wait for a question. He was straight forward and would tell you if he thought you had a case. He is not a crook like a lot that are out there. He is a decent man and I would recommend him to anyone. He is great! Thank you Michael for all your help!
– Gina A.
I highly recommend Mr. Waks for your legal representation. Mr. Waks represented my wife and I in a personal injury claim and we couldn’t be more pleased he was our lawyer. He is thorough, generous with his time no matter what level of case you are involved with, and you will feel well supported. He took the time to explain in detail the process and capacities of what we were to expect. He cared entirely about our opinion and did not choose what we should do, but discussed all the options with us. We couldn’t be more pleased!
– J. B.
Michael Waks was the first Attorney that came to my mind when I needed help with my automobile personal injury accident case. He was available to personally answer my questions, was aggressive with the automobile insurance company, received a settlement larger than I expected, and was always very professional in his handling of my case. I am truly indebted to him for helping me out when I needed it most. He came through for me and I have since referred numerous people to his law practice for representation. The feedback I have heard from my friends has always been extremely positive as to the handling of their cases.
– Joel S. Oiknine
Mr. Waks was very helpful in an accident I was involved in. He made sure that the party responsible for the accident paid for all the damages made to my car. He also made sure I received the proper medical treatment for an injury to my back and neck. Thanks to Mr. Waks, my family and I received compensation for my injuries. If you are looking for someone diligent and caring Mr. Waks is the person for you, he will fight hard for you and get you the compensation you deserve.

If you need representation without any hassle, Michael D Waks is your Attorney! I’m very grateful that he represented my case, Thank you Mr. Waks & Maira!
– Christopher S.
Attorney Waks is very knowledgeable and dedicated to his clients. I was involved in a car accident through no fault of my own, and Mr. Waks took care of a Nightmare involving the insurance company. Even though my case was relatively minor and not very rewarding for him financially, he still charged in headstrong and treated me with the utmost respect. Highly recommended!
– Daniel S.
My family has known the Waks’ for years with our kids in the same class at school. I never thought I would need him for anything more than just a friendly advisor but when my wife and daughter were injured in an accident I was really glad we went to him for protection. He sought the very best outcome for us and handled everything in a professional way. Thanks Mike for taking care of Kas and Relle as I’m sure you would for your own dear daughter. I will always send any referral I have to you first.
– Dave Berry
Michael Waks is GREAT! I’ve been involved in two separate auto accidents. One as a passenger and one as a driver. He has been very helpful in both cases. We used his services for our first accident and then when I was involved in my own accident, I went back to him as he provided great service. I have even referred him to others. I would recommend Michael Waks!!
– Diana U.
Michael Waks was my attorney for an auto accident I was involved in. He was very clear and thorough, I hardly had to do anything which was great. He took care of all the headaches. I believe I received more than what I would have gotten if I had done this on my own. Everything was handled in a timely manner. He and his assistant Maira were easy to contact when I had any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend him!
– Janie L.
I was treated very professionally and very nicely, by Mr. Waks and his staff. I was so very pleased with the amount of money I received the first time I needed Michael’s help that I went back again when I got into a motor vehicle accident. Just like the first time, I was very happy with the way everything turned out. Thanks again.
– Jassmine Bleak
I was involved in a car accident, which was not my fault. I chose to go with a law firm that I always see on the T.V., I figured they must be good. I was wrong, I had very little contact with them, after a few months, they totally stopped responding to me. They dropped me like a hot potato. My Mom actually did some research and found Michael Waks. We met at his office and I felt confident with him right away. He always communicated with me and never left me hanging. Mr. Waks was always professional and caring. He is very straight forward and gets right to the point. Mr Waks got me a very, very good settlement. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have received anything. Do yourself a favor and don’t mess around, contact Mr. Waks for your personal injury case, trust me, you will be very pleased with him and his expertise. Thank you Michael!
– John B.
A bodily injury case was not on my bucket list, but Michael Waks was. He met with me immediately and explained in detail how we would proceed. He kept me up to date on the progression of the case. He took care of everything and had to deal with the bureaucracy of Medicare. His staff was just as excellent. He did not accept what the insurance company offered and got me a very fair settlement. Michael Waks is hard working, reliable and honest.
Michael returned my initial call immediately. He was informed, patient, and supportive. He educated me and helped me understand and participate intelligently in the legal process. At a difficult time for me, I appreciated having someone knowledgeable act responsibly on my behalf. It is with complete confidence that I recommend Michael.
Mr. Waks is very professional and upfront. He doesn’t give you the run around. He tells you exactly what to expect and lets you know if you have a case, from the beginning. Traditional values with all the benefits of modern technology. Thank you for everything Mr. Waks!
– Nahdz M.
I would highly recommend Michael Waks and his law office! Back in March my 8 day old car was rear-ended and Mr. Waks was there every step of the way. Michael, and his office, maintained constant communication through the entire process and were very honest and realistic about his expectations for my case. I am very thankful and pleased with the results of my case.

Not really able to do anything for my situation. But I sent a inquiry through Yelp and received a super quick response with the best course of action I’m able to take for my situation!

I got into a car accident July of 2017, where my car was totaled. I was referred to Mr. Waks by the chiropractor that took care of my injuries from my accident, Dr. Chang. Mr. Waks was very helpful and attended to all my needs and concerns on a timely manner. He’s very straight to the point, honest, and will not waste your time. He handled my case very well and I highly recommend him.
