Sinas Dramis Law Firm publishes a booklet entitled “A Legal Handbook for Michigan Cyclists” written by one of the firm’s partners, Bryan Waldman. The handbook summarizes and explains laws that commonly apply to cyclists. Free print and digital copies can be requested here.
Bryan’s knowledge and experience were indispensable when I was hit by a truck on my bicycle. He was incredibly responsive, committed, and ensured that I received everything that was due to me as a result of the collision. His involvement took the... mystery and stress out of a very unfamiliar situation, and I wouldn’t hesitate to contact him if I found myself in need of future representation.read more

This past April while riding my bicycle in Grand Rapids I was hit by a driver who wasn’t paying attention. Aside from the road rash and blood, I was relatively unscathed. But my bike was damaged; cracked frame that needed to be replaced. The... driver’s insurance company was dawdling and unresponsive — weeks and then months went by. I asked Bryan Waldman to intervene on my behalf and soon thereafter he was able to procure a favorable settlement for me. Bryan is a professional who takes care of his clients while providing excellent counsel, patiently explaining the steps he takes. I highly recommend him!read more
A couple summers back, I crashed on my bike and was severely injured. I wasn’t sure if I had a case but consulted with and ultimately hired Bryan Waldman.Bryan is humble, thoughtful, and an extremely passionate person about right and wrong. These... qualities, amongst others, are what makes him the great human being he is. As far as my case, I can say without a doubt that the only reason things ended the way they did was due to the work Bryan and his team did.Thank you, Bryan, for all of your help! I hope you know that you always have my respect and gratitude. To all those who read this, you won’t find a more loyal or good-hearted lawyer.read more
I have raced competitively as a cyclist between 35 and 75 times a year over the last five years. My accident occurred as I was nearing the end of a training ride on a very beautiful morning. I was riding around a business park area that had some... beautiful open land areas surrounding it. Vehicular traffic was very low and I had already seen quite a bit of wildlife as well as a few deer right next to the road that seemed to pay no mind to me riding past them. As I was nearing the end of my ride, I encountered a car in the oncoming lane. When it made a left turn in front of me I had very little time to try and react. The right front fender collided with me and my bike and my body completely crushed the front windshield of the car. My resulting injuries left me unable to walk at all for six weeks. Fortunately, I was able to recover and have been able to resume cycling and racing again.I learned of Bryan and his work with cyclists while attending several bike races that he supported. In my over 25 years as a police officer I have had many interactions with attorneys. Unfortunately for their clients, many attorneys seem to just go through the motions and spend very little actual time working on their client’s case. Not Bryan Waldman. Bryan not only worked with the at fault driver’s insurance company to reach a fair settlement, he helped me work with my insurance company and the hospital that treated me so that nothing was missed. I can’t say enough about the wonderfully positive experience I had working with Bryan through what was a very difficult and painful time. Since my accident I have been happy to recommended Bryan to other cyclists that I know who have unfortunately been involved in similar accidents.read more

Bryan Waldman handled my case when I was hit by a drunk driver while riding my bicycle. He walked me through absolutely every step of the process, was always available, and was immensely patient and kind in taking the time to explain things to me. I... never felt rushed, and I never felt like he was either in a hurry to close my case or insufficiently concerned about my case to give it his full attention. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone in need of the services he provides.read more
