Mr. Waldman first represented me over 10 years ago. Since that time, I have used his services again and have referred numerous other clients to him, including my wife. Everyone that I have referred to him has been satisfied with his services and has reported that he worked diligently and obtained good results for them. He is understanding of, and sympathetic to his clients' needs. He will work hard to resolve those cases which settle, but is always ready litigate zealously, if necessary. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I have referred many clients to Steve in the past, all of whom have been thrilled with both the results and the personal attention. Steve is a great attorney with fabulous client communication skills.
I was struck by a car walking in a local parking lot in December 2009. The accident left me with 2 fractured vertebrae and a shattered leg below the knee that emergency-room team recommended amputation, but brought in a required consulting physician before proceeding, which physician reconstructed my leg in 8 operations over the next 3 years. I spent the first three days in the hospital interviewing attorneys to handle my case. After seeking second opinions, I was both comfortable and confident in my selection of Stephen Waldman to take my case. I spend the next 4 months in the hospital, during which time Mr. Waldman worked closely with me, the other party, my physicians as well as peer physicians, local authorities, experts and professionals to build a solid case for trial, including a video production to present my life both before and after the accident. The case Mr. Waldman built over that year and a half was so strong that the insurance carriers for the other side agreed in May 2011 to pay an additional two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars on top of a multi-million dollar settlement they had initially agreed to pay in negotiations that day. The strategies Stephen Waldman pursued avoided a long and costly trial and won a settlement that will protect me for the rest of my life.
