I would like to thank Miss Paula Malano for assisting me with my case. She’s very professional,, and very caring for her clients. I would definitely recommend to anyone with legal issues to seek ( Montlic& Associates) for the best legal representation. Thanks again Miss Paula Malano.
I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.
They treated me like i had a million dollar case the whole way. They were direct, competent, and thorough. I was very happy with the outcome have nothing to complain about. My dad used them several years ago, they took good care of him then to good care me this time.
Doing a review from friends phone.This is Danijel V.With that out of the way..Nives Juric is simply amazing. After my case was completed I walked her what is the maximum amount of stars I can leave her because being limited to only 5 does not seem to do her any justice.Professional, kind, caring, fast to respond to any questions or concerns one may have is just tip of the iceberg of what kind of service I personally have received from Nives Juric and her team Krystal.The amount of tenacity and effort that went into my case is unparalleled and comparable to none in a good way.Mrs.Juric is a phenomenal human being and a lawyer.Thank you for all the hard work and dedication I sincerely appreciate it.
The magnitude and depth of gratitude and appreciation for Nick Vocino and his assistant Amber Starks for the extraordinary, remarkable, inspiring, incredible, exceptional and exquisite work that they did for me when I got into a car crash is something I can never forget.I had just started working on my new Home Health Agency when my car was hit. I sustained some serious injuries in my knees, neck and back. That was a big blow to me .Right from the day I called Montlick and Associate and handed over my case to them ; They instantly became my new family: they showed genuine concern for my life; called me frequently to check on me and how my treatment was going.They encouraged me and wished me well when I was going for a surgery as a result of the injury I suffered due to the car crash. They were my fortress and they fought for me. They were timely with every information I needed to know about my case and the speed of communication is beyond imagination.My settlement was a dream come true and it was settled faster than I expected. Don’t even think twice about retaining Montlick and Associates whenever you get involved in any accident.Nick Vocino and Amber Starks are Angels in human form. They are full of compassion, empathy , respect ,resilience and yet they are super talented, professional, knowledgeable and overall astute in their work. I say this in all honesty and seriousness: Montlick and Associates have been a mammoth blessing to my life. May they continue to grow from strength to strength.
Douglas Glosser is our attorney and I couldn’t be happier with the communication and kindness from everyone in his office, their diligence and the care they put in to my family’s case.
Had wonderful experience with Montlick Injury Attorneys and would recommend them to anyone needing assistance. They took care of everything and kept me informed every step of the way.
Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.
I had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Montlick from start to finish. I know for a fact that I would have had so much more pain and stress if it weren't for their handling of my case. Alyssa White and Antonia Morris handled everything with expert care. They were very communicative as well - any time I had a question it was answered immediately. I am so glad I made the right decision to call them when I needed help. I cannot recommend them enough!
Honestly, at the first moment I wasn't going to go with Montlick & Associates, I was with another lawyer that didn't put my needs 1st 😒, I said ha forget that I'm going with Montlick Law Firm and I called and the first thing the Associate said is how you doing 😊 it made me feel so comfortable with them, I didn't have to do anything they handled all the work and made sure they took care of me in the end. I'm happy and will just say that you would be too if you decided to go with Montlick law firm!! #MontlickLawFirm #JusticeServed #ClientLove
Attorney Cate Powell and Team Amy Jones are the best ever ❤️ they truly care about my husband and I .
This was my first experience with an attorney but couldn’t imagine my case going any smoother from start to finish. Montlick & Associates took great care of me and I definitely recommend.
This is by far the absolute best Law Firm in Atlanta, Georgia. My attorney, Nick Vocino, who’s extremely brilliant, exceptionally professional, knowledgeable, efficient, effective, and prompt has handled two car accident cases for me resulting in very favorable outcomes. Nick Vocino and his staff possess the right combination of skills that you can trust to get the very best results. This firm has earned my most fervent and enthusiastic recommendation.
On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates
I'd recommend using Montlick and Associates. They are professional and I felt that I was treated fairly after I was assigned a new attorney. Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained his plan of action and it he took care of everything.
Doug handled my son's car accident with care and patience. He kept us well-informed.
Montlick Injury Attorneys (Scott M. Patterson) and Staff (Sarah / Tamia) were very professional, thoughtful, caring, transparent, and work extremely hard to reach the best injury settlement outcome for our case. Thank you!
Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!

Lawyers for Car Crash Victims Injured by Drunk Drivers

Driving Drunk Is a Crime

In Georgia, drunk driving is a serious offense. Per Georgia law:

  • A person must not drive or have physical control of any moving vehicle after consuming alcohol to the point of intoxication.
  • Operating a vehicle while under the influence of any drug that impairs driving ability is prohibited.
  • It is not permitted for any person to drive with a blood alcohol concentration limit of 0.08 grams at any time within three hours of operating the vehicle.
  • A commercial driver’s license (CDL) holder cannot drive a commercial motor vehicle with 0.04 percent or more BAC in their blood, breath, or urine.

There for you since 1984

We’ve helped countless people just like you in the wake of a drunk driving accident. Let us take the burden off your shoulders.

The Clock Is Ticking for Your Injury Claim

In Albany, Georgia, you generally have only two years from the date of your car accident to file a lawsuit against the drunk driver, but there are exceptions making the timeframe shorter or longer. The best thing you can do is call Montlick today—an attorney will evaluate your case and advise you on your legal options.

Proving Fault in Your Case

Georgia law enforcement can find someone guilty of drunk driving in two ways:

1. A member of law enforcement observes that a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs while using the road.

2. A person’s chemical test result reveals a blood alcohol content (BAC) of:

    • 0.08% or more (for a driver over 21 years old)
    • 0.02% or higher (if the driver is under 21 years old)
    • 0.04% or more for someone driving a commercial vehicle.

An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to investigate your unique situation and could find additional avenues to prove fault.

Understanding Georgia Dram Shop Laws

Georgia’s Dram Shop Law states that a business selling alcohol can be held liable for damages caused by their customers if they were over-served alcohol and injured someone. This law allows the injured person to pursue compensation from the business for any damages caused by the intoxicated person.

What to Do After a Drunk Driving Accident

The moments after a collision with a drunk driver are critical. If you are alert and can safely do so, follow these directives to help both your health and your eventual claim:

  • Call 911 and do not leave the scene until they arrive. While you wait, check for any injuries to yourself or other passengers, or damage to your vehicle.
  • Photograph the scene as much as you can from all angles. Save the photos for your attorney.
  • Exchange information with the other driver and get contact information from any witnesses present. These witnesses could offer testimonies that strengthen your case.
  • Even if you believe your injuries are negligible, get checked by a medical professional. There’s a chance your injuries may not be external or immediately visible. Put your safety first and ensure that a doctor thoroughly examines you.
  • A drunk driving accident also causes emotional damage. Remember, your mental health matters too. Seek any counseling services you may need.
  • Contact a Montlick personal injury lawyer
