There are many positive words to describe my experience with Montlick & Associates. However, the ones that are most applicable to my case are professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.I truly appreciate the time and effort that Nick Vocino and Amber Starks spent on my behalf. The entire process took about 2 years from the date of the accident to the date I got my settlement check. Nick kept me apprised every step of the way and for that, I am truly grateful!Montlick & Associates is a 5-star law firm. I would absolutely recommend it to my family and friends!

After a terrible accident, we turned to Ellen Forrester at Montlick for help with my mom's case. She walked us through everything step by step, handled the documentation and when it came time, her colleague, Mike Moran, and her represented my mom amazingly at mediation. While we are very happy with the settlement reached, this process was so much easier with their care and guidance. We will forever recommend them and Montlick to anyone.

When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

I had a wonderful experience with Montlick and my lawyer Nick Vocino. He was very efficient and always available if I needed him. I would recommend Montlick and Nick V. to anyone who needs help after an accident!

When I was injured in an automobile accident I called Motlick Personal Injury Law Firm. Attorney Cate Powell and her team took on my case and won. I am thankful that I knew which law firm to call. If you are injured in an accident, call Motlick!
Jacqueline Johnson
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!

I recommend everyone who is injured in an accident to hire Nives R. Juric, Attorney at Law at Montlick. A drunk driver crashed into the back of me on the highway and she won my case. She’s the best!

Slip and fall cases against property owners often involve complex legal issues, such as sovereign immunity when pursuing an injury claim against a public entity, the legal relationship between the parties and the purpose of the injury victim for being on the premises as well as other important legal questions that can impact liability.

Our Columbus slip and fall attorneys at Montlick also recognize that slip and fall claims may require careful investigation of lighting conditions, the amount of time a hazard was present, maintenance practices, prior accident reports and other factors. We have successfully represented Columbus slip and fall victims since our law firm was founded in 1984.

What Is Premises Liability?

Slip and fall accident claims are governed by the area law referred to as “premises liability.” Premises liability law defines the duty of property owners to make their premises safe for those who come on their land or to warn about potential hazards that are not obvious to visitors. While a Columbus commercial property owners conducting business on the premises essentially have an obligation to make their premises reasonably safe by removing known hazards or investigating to discover hazards that they should know exist, this duty can vary depending on the reason a visitor is on the premises.

When a customer is patronizing a Columbus business, the business owner generally must take reasonable care to make the premises safe from foreseeable hazards and hidden dangers. This includes conducting reasonable inspections and maintenance of the premises to discover unsafe conditions like a bunched up rug, broken step, slick or sticky substance on the floor or other hazards.
