"Attorney Deborah Palmer is known in and beyond Michigan for her excellent work and expertise representing clients in a very competitive area.” ~Bill R.

”Mrs. Palmer has been a blessing in my situation. I have never been in a car accident before in my life. From day one, since meeting her, she has been completely kind and courteous, yet professional. Mrs. Palmer has been very attentive and caring through this whole process for me. She has always been open, honest, and always kept me in the loop. She is always available and always able to answer any and all questions and concerns I may have had. She is extremely hard working and not just for a paycheck. She is not just an attorney, she is also your friend. I would refer anyone I know including my entire family to Mrs. Palmer. She is literally a phenomenal person.” ~Heather M.

”I would just like to say thank you for taking my son's SSI case when no one else would touch it. It was a long shot, but we prevailed and were accepted. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to his needs in this case. I hope if anyone shall have doubts about retaining an attorney for social security benefits, please note that Debbie Palmer will fight for you and your rights. Thank you again!” ~Deb B.
