About Michels & Lew

For over 35 years, the Los Angeles Law Firm of Michels & Lew has been representing victims of catastrophic injury throughout California and surrounding states. Our personal injury lawyers have represented over 1,000 individuals and families, including victims of medical malpractice, school accidents, sexual abuse, drowning accidents and other tragic accidents. We have been successful in recovering compensation in nearly every case we have handled. The quality of our legal services is documented in verdicts and settlements. Our recoveries total over one billion dollars, including the then highest award ever for a fatal child injury against a local school district and one of the highest awards for a birth injury against Los Angeles County. We have the legal experience, the investigative tools and the medical expertise to handle even the most complex catastrophic injury cases.

We provide the support our clients need to recover

Our clients have experienced brain injury, paralysis, third-degree burns, loss of an infant in childbirth, sexual abuse and other catastrophic injuries. Without exception, they have experienced tragedies before they enter our offices. Our lawyers and staff members are sensitive to these situations. For that reason our service does not stop in the courtroom—we are committed to providing our clients with the support and services they need to cope with the legal process, to get the medical and rehabilitative care they need and to rebuild their lives after their cases are resolved. Victims of tragedy should be afforded a life of dignity and the best medical care available with absolutely no out-of-pocket expenses.

Our LA firm, The Law Offices of Michels & Lew, a Professional Law Corporation, is known throughout California for its work in the area of medical malpractice, and our attorneys are supported by a team led by Bradford S. Davis, M.D., former clinical director of the Emergency Department at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica. We handle medical malpractice cases including birth injuries, nursing home injuries, failure to diagnose cancer, radiation errors, misdiagnosis of heart attack and stroke, emergency room errors and hospital negligence.

We succeed in cases other lawyers turn down

Thorough investigation and litigation of a complex personal injury case are only possible if the attorneys are supported by a law firm with extensive resources. We have recovered millions of dollars in cases rejected by other attorneys due, in part, to our access to vast resources necessary for complex litigation.

If you or your family has experienced a serious injury, including a child injury, you may be under pressure to accept an insurance settlement offer. We urge you to have your case reviewed by an attorney with extensive experience in your type of legal challenge before you make any decision. If you would like to speak to a member of our team or one of our lawyers, please contact our office with the facts of your case. As your legal counsel we will help you uncover the truth and hold those responsible for your loss accountable.

Our firm provides Spanish language services to clients and we serve all Southern California communities including San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange County. We see that they are compensated for injuries resulting from substandard medical care and other negligence, helping them recover compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost earnings and future care.
