OUR ATTORNEYS

Collectively we have over 95 years of experience.  We are committed to delivering the highest quality of legal representation.
We are from Muskegon: born and raised.  We live in the same community as the judges and jurors who will be deciding your case.  We are very familiar with the police officers, accident reconstructionists, doctors, and other witnesses who are involved in most of our cases.  These are some of the many reasons why we have an advantage over lawyers from Grand Rapids and Detroit.

We assist every day people who are suffering from some of life’s most difficult and traumatic situations.  People who have been seriously injured, or families who have lost loved ones due to the senseless carelessness of others, deserve the best representation they can find.  The insurance companies hire attorneys from Grand Rapids, Lansing and Detroit to prevent deserving people and families from receiving fair compensation.  Our clients hire us for one reason: our results and commitment to doing whatever it takes to make sure that our clients receive significant awards.  We have numerous settlements and verdicts of over one million dollars and have secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements of fifteen million dollars for a single accident victim.

about

NOLAN & SHAFER PLC

We are the undisputed “go-to” injury and wrongful death attorneys in Muskegon and on the Lakeshore.  We handle cases all over the state and in other states as well.  Our primary focus is on handling local cases, but we routinely handle cases all over Michigan.  Our settlements and verdicts are the highest in the area.  We personally handle your case: from meeting you at home or in the hospital, to filing your case, court appearances, reviewing your medical records, meeting with experts, depositions, and actually going to court and trying cases, if they cannot be settled.  We PERSONALLY handle your case.  We are not like other firms in big cities who simply act as a middle-man and refer your cases to other firms for handling.

AUTO, MOTORCYCLE & TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

If you were injured or a loved one was killed due to the negligence of someone else in a car, motorcycle, or truck accident you should contact us immediately.
Insurance companies and their attorneys will immediately gather evidence and do whatever they can to avoid paying you what you deserve.  We live locally.  We know the police officers and doctors that will be caring for you.  We have a tremendous advantage over attorneys from Grand Rapids and Detroit.  Specific rules and laws apply to those injured or killed in motor vehicle, motorcycle and trucking accidents.  It is crucial that you contact an experienced firm like ours so that evidence is not lost and you may be informed of your rights.

WRONGFUL DEATH CASES

If someone is killed due to the negligence or carelessness of another, survivors and the estate of the person who was killed may sue the person or company responsible for the wrongful death of their relative.  Again, there are numerous laws and issues that experienced lawyers like those at Nolan & Shafer know that are vital for the successful pursuit of these cases.  If your loved one has been killed due to the wrongful conduct of another you should call us immediately.

DOG BITES

If you are bitten by a dog in Michigan you are entitled to damages—even if the dog has not bitten anyone before.  People who own dogs or other animals that injure others are legally responsible for the damages caused by their pets.  Almost always the owners of these animals have homeowners or other liability insurance that will pay for the injuries and damages caused by their dogs and other pets.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

When a doctor, hospital, nurse, other health care provider causes pain, injury or even death to a patient, due to negligence or carelessness, you have rights.
We pursue these cases.  These are some of the most complex types of cases that we have the privilege of handling for our deserving clients.  Healthcare professionals have vast resources and excellent lawyers representing them, shouldn’t you?

CONSTRUCTION & WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS

If your workplace injury was caused by someone else who failed to take proper precautions to prevent the accident, you can sue for damages.  If you were injured on-the-job, and the cause of the injury was another person’s or company’s carelessness, you should contact us immediately.

SLIP & FALL, PREMISES LIABILITY, GENERAL NEGLIGENCE

There are many laws that make navigating slip and fall, and trip and fall cases very complicated.  We handle these cases with a great deal of success.  If you are injured on the property of another, a business, a school, or other, you should contact us to see if we can assist you with collecting damages for your medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering.
