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!
I highly recommend Ellis C. Liu! Thank you Montlick & Associates for everything!

Thank you, Montlick and associates, for taking my case. Special thanks to Scott Paterson and his secretary Sarah for your patience and always encouraging when me it got tough. You put in all your effort to make sure I was compensated. I wish I could give you 100 stars. God bless you all, and thank you.
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 !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amber and Nick have been an outstanding team. They guided me through the legal process after my accident and always kept me up-to-date with progress on my case. Amber was always available to answer any questions, and was so polite and professional. Both Nick and Amber really did an amazing job of making me feel like I was their priority. Thanks so much to both of you!
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.

Wrongful Death Lawyers Serving Atlanta

Maximum Compensation. Maximum Care.

In addition to the emotional turmoil caused by the wrongful death of a loved one, family members often contend with financial difficulties due to high medical costs, funeral and burial expenses, and/or lost income or support from the deceased. This can add another layer of stress and hardship for those affected by a wrongful death. For 40 years Montlick has been putting money in our clients’ pockets—where it belongs.

Our approach to our cases is different than most big firms. We value personalized service. That means to us, you’re never just a case number. When you hire us, you’ll get to know your attorney and legal team right from the start, and you’ll never be left in the dark about your case.

Atlanta Wrongful Death Claims

Battling Big Insurance

Protect Your Rights

Montlick attorneys work for you. We will handle all aspects of your claim and ensure that your legal rights are protected at every turn.
Contact Us

To the insurance companies fighting hard to minimize your payout, you’re just a claim number. Our job is to make the insurance companies understand the true value of your loss, not base your compensation on the insurance company’s cold, impersonal calculations. We will do what it takes to investigate all potential avenues of recovery, hire experts when needed, and assemble and present evidence in the most persuasive way, and work hard to get you the most money possible.

What type of damages are recoverable?

The types of damages recovered can vary from state-to-state as well. For example, the types of damages or combination of damages some states allow for wrongful death claimants include the full economic and non-economic value of the life of the victim, loss of companionship, value of support and services, and/or punitive damages, to name a few. Families may also be entitled to burial and funeral expenses, medical expenses incurred, and payment for the pain and suffering endured by the deceased victim.

The laws that determine who can actually bring a wrongful death claim are complicated and can be confusing if you’ve never been down this road before. Depending on your relationship to your lost loved one, various state laws, and other unique facts and circumstances of your case, you may or may not have the right to bring a wrongful death claim. The easiest way to find out if you’re entitled to bring a claim is by calling Montlick. An attorney (not a paralegal or legal assistant—a qualified attorney) will walk you through your legal options and advise you on the next steps to take to protect your rights.

Legal Time Deadlines Vary

Legal time deadlines can vary greatly based on the specifics of each case. That’s why contacting a Montlick attorney as soon as possible for a free consultation is always the right choice.
Act Now
Why You Need to Act Now

All types of legal claims are subject to “statutes of limitations” or legal time deadlines. Failing to comply with a statute of limitations could mean that you will lose all ability and rights to financial compensation.

Every state has laws that limit the amount of time families have to file or settle wrongful death claims. Statutes of limitations in wrongful death cases normally begin running on the date of the incident that caused the victim’s death, but the amount of time a person has to file the claim varies significantly depending on the relevant state, and there are exceptions that can shorten or lengthen such deadlines. In some cases, a combination of different types of legal claims may exist that involve different time frames, which may be due to multiple defendants and/or even the laws of more than one jurisdiction.

We advise clients to take action as soon as possible when they learn they might have a legal cause of action. Some states have shorter statutes of limitations on wrongful death cases than on other personal injury cases, so it is even more important to act quickly. In auto accident cases, many insurance policies owned by the victim or the victim’s family also have timely notification requirements, meaning if a claim is not filed in time or appropriate notice is not given, the family of the decedent can lose valuable insurance money.

We want you to have the strongest case possible, and that could mean we need to preserve evidence or talk to witnesses as soon as possible. Waiting too long to contact us could mean that important evidence necessary for your case disappears or is destroyed; or and witnesses go missing or forget what happened. We throughly investigate our clients’ cases, and these factors are often extremely important elements in that investigation.

Wrongful death cases can be the result of many situations in which negligent, reckless or intentional conduct by an individual or company leads to a fatality. Wrongful death cases can arise from car or truck crashes, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, products liability claims, premises liability claims and more.

Generally, wrongful death lawsuits have potentially enormous monetary value, and require thorough investigation by an experienced attorney. Financial compensation could be achieved through more than one avenue, such as multiple defendants, multiple insurance policies, and more. Our lawyers know how to properly investigate a wrongful death case so that grieving families get the money they deserve.
