Jon Ostroff has redefined my expectations and opinions of Injury Lawyers! In the Worst part of my life I not only gained a Great friend, in Jon, but a Lawyer who did Everything he said he could! Outstanding communication skills, Integrity and Compassion! A True Friend and DAMN GOOD ATTORNEY!
(note from Jon Ostroff: Tom’s case was turned down by other attorneys. We believed in Tom and his claim. After a tough battle and just before starting trial, we settled Tom’s case for $1,950,000.)
I’ve been in three auto accidents and for the first time in my life, I feel great about my attorney. Truly. It is very difficult to find an attorney who actually sees you as a human being, not just another case file. Enter Jon Ostroff and his team. I felt as ease as soon as I spoke with Jon. He is empathetic and experienced, the perfect combination for an attorney, in my opinion. I struggled with physical and emotional trauma, so the last thing I wanted to deal with was the at-fault insurance company who ONLY cares about its bottom line. Ostroff Injury Lawyers are a rare find. To Jon, Lance and the rest of the team, I am so grateful.
I left another lawyer in Pittsburgh because he said he could not help me, because I had limited tort insurance. I found Mr. Ostroff on line. He called me in 10 minutes, sent a lawyer to my home in two days and settled my case for $200,000 in less than one year.
