I was in a car accident and a friend of mine recommended me to Michael. I gave his office a call and was helped immediately. Every call and question/concern was always answered promptly and swiftly. It was a very speedy process and I would recommend anyone who is in need of a personal injury attorney to go to him.

I contacted Michael Shammas back in October of 2019 regarding a personal injury. He was upfront regarding his costs and that it could take 2 years to completely settle. He walked me through everything keeping me informed during the entire process. He was not just professional he was approachable and always looked out for my best interest. I would highly recommend him to anyone and should the need arise I would not consider any other lawyer.

Personal Injury Attorney

When my wife was hit by a car while walking across the street she suffered several injuries, we were distraught abut knew we needed legal help. I found attorney Michael Shammas. From the beginning, we felt he was concerned about our welfare, invested in our case and wanted to get us a JUST resolution for us. We felt like a load was lifted off our shoulders. Mike answered all our calls and reassured us that he will make sure everything would be alright. He gave us counsel and helped locate doctors, clinics, and therapists for my wife. He took care of all the paperwork. My wife was off work for several months and the bills were piling up but mike explained the whole process in detail and he went above and beyond for us. He was straightforward about what our possibilities and resolutions were without making false promises, which was refreshing. We feel beyond happy and fortunate that we had an attorney who through his thoughtful and dedicated approach, helped us reach a VERY just resolution. I would sincerely recommend Mike to everyone seeking a detail oriented, knowledgeable, and experienced attorney to represent them in their personal injury case

Shammas Law Office did an excellent job handling my daughter's injury case. Unfortunately she was struck by a car while riding her bicycle and I wasn't sure what to do next. I called several law offices in Chicago and I didn't feel like a priority and my daughter needed help with her injuries. I received a call from Michael and he was there to help. From the very first call, I knew he had my daughter's best interest in mind because he was patient, honest and committed to helping her recover. Michael let me focus on taking care of my daughter while he handled the case. I would recommend Shammas Law Office to anyone needing a personal injury attorney.

Background Check

Michael Shammas


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    You pay nothing out-of-pocket. The attorney’s fees are contingent, meaning Shammas Law Office only collects a fee if you receive money for your injuries. The attorney's fees are a fixed percentage of the recovery.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First I will learn the details of the accident and the basic nature of the client's injuries. Next, I fully explain the process of an injury case, what to expect moving forward, and answer any questions the client might have. Then, I can help cordinate or directly set-up the follow-up medical care with the appropriate specialists. Also, it may be necessary to arrange for car repairs or replacement.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
