History and Philosophy

Michigan lawyers working for Michigan people

Twenty-five years ago, Joe Dedvukaj, a first generation Albanian-American immigrant then a young attorney fresh out of law school, hung out his shingle in a small office located in the up-and-coming business district in Southfield, in his native Oakland County. Since then, the Law Offices of Joe Dedvukaj has grown into one of Michigan’s leading personal injury law firms with a staff of over 12 professionals dedicated to serving the legal needs of Michiganders who have suffered injuries and disabilities.

Today, Joe is perhaps the best known personal injury trials lawyer in Michigan and continues his tireless efforts to get Michiganders the justice they deserve.

Access to justice through top quality representation

The focus of the firm’s practice has always been personal injury and disability law, and is limited exclusively to representing accident victims who have suffered personal injuries and disabled Michiganders who have applied for benefits under the Social Security system. Since 1992, the Law Offices of Joe Dedvukaj has represented more than 15,000 injured and disabled Michiganders and recovered over $250 million in settlements, verdicts and judgment damages and benefits for our clients.

The firm owes its success to several important factors. The first is its large, dedicated and highly experienced staff of legal professionals. Joe and his staff provide legal representation to clients in a highly intelligent, creative and aggressive way, while remaining sensitive and attentive to each of our client’s special personal needs. Our clients benefit from the law firm’s large investment in staff training and supervision, as well as our dedication to the use of advanced technology.

The firm’s clients have a choice of meeting in the privacy and security of our Bloomfield Hills, Michigan headquarters, or in their home, the hospital or other convenient location. For Joe, access to justice for our clients is of paramount importance.

Over 25 years experience in personal injury and disability law

On average, our attorneys have over 20 years experience as personal injury and disability attorneys.

Joe prides himself on developing and maintaining long-term relationships with both office staff and clients. In fact, many of our clients are referred to us by past and present satisfied clients who recommend our services to their friends, co-workers, and family members.

Joe strongly believes that the reputation of his firm as a leader in the field of injury and disability law, the dedication and expertise of his staff, and the loyalty of his clients, speak volumes about what kind of person he is and the law firm he runs.

Relentless dedication to communities throughout Michigan

The Law Offices of Joe Dedvukaj is dedicated to giving back to the Michigan communities that we serve. Joe proudly supports and participates in several legal and civic organizations and activities, including the firm’s many philanthropic activities. The program is celebrating its twentieth year and contributes to human rights causes creatively and tries to send a message to peers about the need to support human rights worldwide.
In 2016, the firm awarded thousands of dollars to human rights organizations and scholarships!

A dedication to educating Michigan families about their legal rights

Another important priority for the Law Offices of Joe Dedvukaj is educating Michigan families about their legal rights regarding personal injury and disability laws. Some of the client-education tools Joe employs are his blog, email blasts and newsletter, his statewide Social Security Outreach Program to groups advocating on behalf of Michiganders with physical and emotional health issues, and multiple client brochures about motor vehicle accidents and Social Security Disability claims.

We treat clients with the dignity and respect they deserve

Joe has learned many important lessons from his clients. At the firm, every staff member treats clients with the dignity and respect that they deserve. Our lawyers are available to meet with you at one of our offices, each wheelchair accessible, or in your home, the hospital or other location of your choice.

We are proud to provide top quality legal services to Michiganders of all backgrounds through the contingent fee (no fee guarantee unless you collect) system. Under that system, clients only pay an attorney fee when they collect money for their injury or disability, and not before. A client is never asked for a retainer or a payment up front to cover client costs.

Joe’s pledge to help Michigan families of all backgrounds in a time of need

The Law Offices of Joe Dedvukaj has been privileged and honored to represent more than 15,000 Michigan clients from every background in its 25 year history. It is Joe’s pledge to continue to make top quality legal services readily available to the citizens of Michigan no matter where they live throughout our wonderful state. His team of over over 12 legal professionals is equipped to handle personal injury and disability claims that run the spectrum from the most straightforward, to those with the most complex legal, insurance, and medical issues.
Some Michiganders think that the Law Offices of Joe Dedvukaj handles claims for only the most seriously injured clients. In reality, the firm handles claims that involve every type of injury and disability. Our attorneys have the knowledge, skills, and resources to answer all of your questions related to accident, injury, and disability claims in a direct, honest, and compassionate way.
Joe looks forward to serving the legal needs of Michiganders for many years to come.

The greatest compliment a client can give a lawyer is the referral of a friend or loved one. Thank you for your trust in me.

Best, Joe.
