I appreciate you guys more than you will ever know. If anyone of you ever needs an attorney 👀look no further. These 2 are your guys.👏👏🤝🏆🏆🏆⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
I would like to thank Mike Bish, MacKenzie Lisa's, and David Rubin for handling and litigate my case. They were very professional and helpful making sure that if I didn't have any issues with my workers comp claim. I will recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone that needs help. They keep communication open and have all the right people in place to answer all my questions and very knowledgeable of what steps to take when injured.
I hired Mrs. Forrester for my case last year in May and they got me settled for more money than I ever thought!!! Very professional and prompt with call backs my overall experience with them was amazing!! Mrs. Foresster and Ms. Julie Vaughn was the sweetest and most hard working lawyers there is I have already referred them to my sister and will continue to recommend them to all my friends and family!!

Hit-By-Car Pedestrian Accident Injury & Wrongful Death Lawyers

Beware of Insurance Tactics

For 39 years, Montlick’s pedestrian accident attorneys have fought for pedestrians, joggers, rollerbladers and walkers who are injured by unsafe drivers of cars, trucks, tractor-trailers, busses and other motor vehicles.

Insurance companies aggressively fight against pedestrian accident claims because the injuries are usually very serious and costly, and they want to maximize their profits. One of their most common tactics is to suggest that the pedestrian, not the driver, caused the accident. If you were struck by a motor vehicle while jaywalking, it is almost certainly the case that the insurance company will contend that your violation of law, rather than the conduct of the driver, caused your pedestrian accident injuries. Montlick knows how to anticipate and effectively counter the shady strategies auto insurance companies employ after pedestrian accidents, so our clients get the justice they deserve.

Why You Need a Pedestrian Injury Lawyer

Pedestrian accidents can result in serious, and even life-threatening injuries. Injured victims of such accidents generally require costly, long-term medical care, and suffer extraordinary financial hardship. Retaining an attorney to pursue your claim can be a critical step to obtaining compensation for your injuries. For example, at-fault drivers in pedestrian accidents typically blame the victims for causing the accident in order to avoid liability and corresponding criminal charges. In turn, insurance companies will often initially attempt to speak with victims in an effort to obtain information to deny or minimize their claims. Our attorneys shield our clients from such insurance traps and pitfalls.

Additionally, pedestrian accident victims may not realize that their own auto insurance policies could provide additional uninsured/underinsured motorist as well as Medical Payments (MedPay) and/or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage for their injuries. Our attorneys work to identify all viable avenues of recovery, and in the past, we have been successful in discovering additional defendants and insurance policies that our clients were not aware of, or that other insurance companies did not disclose. Our attorneys work hard on behalf of each client to maximize the value of their cases under the law.


Failing to comply with a statute of limitations will permanently bar your right to a recovery.

Legal Time Deadlines to Know

Statute of limitations set forth the number of years, starting from the date of the accident, in which a victim or the family of the victim may bring a personal injury or wrongful death case, whichever may apply. The amount of time a person has to resolve or file a lawsuit for a personal injury claim varies from state to state. Warning: there are also exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline! By way of example only: certain types of pedestrian accident claims against state or federal government entities can have much shorter deadlines. In some pedestrian accident cases, there could be a combination of different types of injury claims that may involve different time frames, multiple defendants, and/or the laws of more than one jurisdiction. Also, in some states, the statute of limitations could be extended when the personal injury case involves a minor child.

While there are many causes 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.

I was cited for jaywalking when I was injured as a pedestrian. Do I still have a case?

Pedestrians are generally at a significant disadvantage after a collision with a vehicle. The lack of protection for a pedestrian often means that the pedestrian suffers more severe injuries and needs to be removed from the scene of the accident for medical care. In these cases, the police who arrive at the scene might only get one side of the story from the at-fault driver, and may even cite the pedestrian if they were not in a crosswalk at the time of the accident. A citation does not necessarily prove liability and even if you were cited, you could still have a viable pedestrian accident case. Call a Montlick attorney as soon as possible to discuss your rights and options for pursuing compensation.
