Montlick and Associates at Executive Park in Atlanta, Ga have been the most professional and customer service oriented firm I've had the pleasure of working with despite the circumstance I was in. They were able to assist me with 1 case successfully in December 2019.I recently needed additional assistance in October 2023 for a 2nd case. This time Montlick and Associtates could not directly assist me due to the nature of my request, but they were able to point me into the right direction on where I can receive attorney services.That was such a huge relief! Thank you to Nick Vocino and his office and team!
I couldn’t have chosen a better law firm to handle the case of my accident which was not my fault! Jason Saltzman was my attorney and he was amazing and he didn’t leave any stones unturned! He worked for the absolute most for me and got me the care I needed ! And Esmeralda, his senior legal assistant, was always there when I had questions and would always email me back very quickly if I had questions and she and Jason really put my mind at ease while going through all of this ! He got me the maximum of what I deserved and worked hard on my case! I’d give them 100 stars if I could because they are the best! I’d recommend them anytime any day for anyone who needs an attorney who cares and one that will answer you no matter what and answer any questions that you may have ! Thank you so much Jason and Esmeralda !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Although the circumstances that led me to Montlick and Associates were not pleasant, this firm was a joy to work with. Nick Vocino and his team, especially "Amber Starks: ("AmberfromMrVocinosoffice"). They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional at all times. They paid close attention to items that I thought were "little things" and answered all of my concerns. They made my family feel important and treated us as such. Thank you for your hard work. I would certainly recommend this firm to others, especially my family and friends.
This firm & the team are amazing! Attorney David Rubin, Michael, Lauren & Bobby are some of the best people! They are hardworking & caring.
Mike and Laura were attentive and professional. I feel good about working with them and the settlement we won
Scott Patterson and Sarah Duncan were extremely supportive throughout my case. Their professionalism, candor, and flexibility are second to none. I highly recommend this work group in your time if need they fight hard for you!!
This was my second time using Montlick, my first time was a workman's comp case, this time it was not and they handled it like a champ. My attorney Scott Patterson was awesome so was Jeff ! They answered all of questions I had and kept in contact throughout the entire process, which lasted 21 months till closure. I am in the construction field, just a everyday average guy and highly recommend this firm for any situation that you may have. Hats off to Scott and Jeff for all the help !!
I really appreciate the hard work they did. They were right on it. Made sure I received all the necessary treatment and therapy. Everything could be done online, which made it convenient. Kept me informed in the process. Grateful for the blessing of what I received! Thanks to Àttorney Monick and his assistant, Sara.
Jeff Beard and jarena are amazing they done and exceptional job. I would recommend them to everyone and anyone. They were consistent in everything and treated me more than family. May God bless them and all the associates that work there.
They kept in touch with me about every aspect of my case. I knew they were working for my benefit.
The staff are courtesy and the attorneys work hard on your behalf. In addition, they keep you abreast of the status of your case.
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Scott Patterson who truly went above and beyond for my case. He's so amazing! His expertise and dedication were evident throughout the process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to the hard work and patience put into my case. I received a fantastic and fair settlement that exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, his assistant, Sarah Duncan, played an integral role in the success of my case. Her professionalism and support were outstanding. She consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for my needs and was always there to provide assistance whenever I needed it.Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding service provided by Attorney Scott Patterson and team. I wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates law firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you so much!
Hey everyone alyssa is the best lawyer I have ever had. She works fast and has everything organized. If you are having trouble looking for a lawyer no problem call Alyssa Martin she’s the best!!!!
Attorney Scott Patterson was outstanding in getting us compensated for an injury to our 3 yr old. Other attorneys probably wouldn't have bothered with our case but he took a chance and worked his butt off which led to us receiving a settlement. Very pleased!Walter
On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.

Athens Pedestrian Accident Injury & Wrongful Death Lawyers

The Road to Recovery Starts Here

With Athens’ historic architecture, it’s hard not to stop and stare at the buildings as you walk by. Located in Clarke County, Athens is arguably one of the best places to live in Georgia for families, food lovers, music enthusiasts, and football fanatics alike. Many residents of Athens find walking in town comfortable and safe — until a distracted driver makes one fatal mistake.

Distracted drivers can run a stop sign, ignore a traffic signal or speed through an intersection. Pedestrian accidents can leave their victims with serious injuries that require long-term or even lifelong treatment. The cost of doctor’s visits, physical therapy, surgeries, and prescription medications can quickly mount to unaffordable levels. Don’t wait — the path to financial recovery begins with a call to Montlick.

Athens Pedestrian Injury & Wrongful Death Lawyers

What Causes Pedestrian Accidents?

While there are many causes of pedestrian accidents, some of the most common include the following:

  • Drivers whose mental and/or physical faculties are impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding particularly in high pedestrian traffic areas
  • Tired or fatigued drivers
  • Roads without pedestrian safety features like longer lights, middle islands and frequent crosswalks
  • Drivers rushing through intersections to “beat the light”
  • Poorly designed pedestrian crossings
  • Using cell phones to call or text particularly around intersections, school zones, bus stops and commercial businesses

Although many types of pedestrian accidents are caused by unsafe driving, the failure of public entities to design roadways and intersections with pedestrians in mind also plays a significant role in causing pedestrian accidents nationwide. A Montlick pedestrian accident lawyer could also pursue a legal claim against the appropriate public entity when an unsafe design or neglected road maintenance contributes to a pedestrian accident.

Because public entities have sovereign immunity, special procedures, and timing requirements must be met when suing a municipality or other government entity for injuries or death suffered in a pedestrian accident. Our experienced pedestrian accident attorneys may be able to guide you through these special requirements so that you do not undermine your accident claim.

Free Legal Help

Being hit by a motorist as a pedestrian can be terrifying and disorienting. The following steps can help you to preserve any personal injury claim you may have if you have been injured as a pedestrian:

  1. Move to Safety: Subsequent accidents are a serious concern immediately following pedestrian crashes. If you are physically able to do so, move yourself out of the roadway. Get to a safe spot where you are less likely to be hit by another car.
  2. Contact authorities: If you are involved in any type of motor vehicle incident, call 911 at the scene, so that a police officer can document what happened and send appropriate medical personnel.
  3. Obtain Medical Treatment: The shock of an accident can mask pain and other signs of an injury. You may be transported to the emergency room by paramedics but if not, it remains important to seek medical care following your accident – even if you are not sure if you have sustained injuries. Consulting with a physician immediately after the accident can aid in the early discovery of hard-to-detect injuries, such as concussions and internal bleeding.
  4. Gather information: If able to do so, exchange information with the motorist(s) involved in the accident, including the driver’s license number and insurance information. Obtain the contact information of any witnesses to the accident and take pictures if you can do so.
  5. Contact a pedestrian accident attorney: As soon as you can after the accident, call our pedestrian accident attorneys at Montlick. If you remain hospitalized, we will come to meet with you. We will review the facts and circumstances of your accident and help you protect your rights. If a motorist is responsible for your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and Pain and Suffering claims. If the driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol, you may even be entitled to additional damages called punitive damages.
