    I endorse this lawyer's work. We refer all our auto accident litigation in the District of Columbia to Mr. Jaklitsch. He is known througout Maryland and DC as one of the top litigators in his field of personal injury. Mr Jaklitsch is a fearless litigator who does not back down to the insurance companies. He has obtained numerous "big" verdicts for his clients in trial.
