Some years ago, I suffered a motor vehicle wreck at the hands of an assailant that fled the scene. My injuries still plague me to this day.
John Ratkowitz is not only one hell of a trial attorney, but is as good and decent as they come. A family man himself, he is honest and forthright and above all delivered a verdict that my family considers an ultimate vindication for what we went through (and are still going through), regardless of the damages we were awarded (all told- a substantial $2.6 mil verdict) above and beyond anybody’s expectations.
Allaying my concerns, and there were many, John steered my case into a precedent setting landmark the reverberations of which will be felt for years to come.
He is not just my attorney, but in light of all he has done for my family and myself, I would consider him a friend. God bless you John-
John is an excellent trial attorney.
I employed him on a malpractice case and he was excellent.
I have had experience with other lawyers & he was by far the best.
He is meticulous in both fact gathering on my case as well as preparing me extremely well for my deposition.
He is not flamboyant but tenacious & determined in grilling his opponents using 'state of the art' courtroom techniques & computer equipment coupled with unparalleled preparation. He is court savy & always represents your interests
The outcome of my case was extremely favorable & was settled after a few days without my even having to undergo the the distress of testifying.
I would not hesitate to use his services in any venue or on cases outsice of the medical malpractice arena.
