Posted by CAROLINE, a Personal Injury client, Flag
My name is Caroline J.L. & I am from Beaverton Oregon.
In May of 2009 I was in a car accident & injured badly in my neck & lower back.
I needed an Attorney!!!
I was referred to Jon Friedman in Portland Oregon with No Hesitation by someone I know very well.
I went for the initial meeting and was completely floored by the man!!!
He did not throw me off by using terms I did not understand, yet, didn't talk to me as if I were stupid either.
He explained to me in detail how my case would be handled & the way payment would occur.
I was also told that if I ever had any questions, not to hesitate and call or email right away.
I agreed to have Jon Friedman as my Attorney.
I came out of my first meeting with him knowing I WAS IN GREAT HANDS!!!!
This has not been a short term experience & not a trip to the candy store at all.
It will take time.
TIME WORTH WHILE!
During my 1.5 years working with Jon & Office Manager Nancy,
I have been surprised many times by how fast my questions have been answered.
I email late in the night & by noon the next day I had a reply. If the answer was not as easy, I
would get a call or email back letting me know he was finding out and would get back to me ASAP & he always did.
Nancy as well, worked very hard for me in making sure my questions made sense and were not totally stupid.
She answered many of my questions right away and would still have Jon call me back to verify what she had said.
Nancy always kept my file up to date and accurate.
I even received a call from Jon while he was away from Oregon.
Even though he was busy, he made time for me and my needs.
Jon has been very involved in my doctors visits. He asked that I give him (in my words) reports after I saw each doctor.
He wanted to make sure all the lines of communication were open and clear & he wanted to make sure the doctors were not telling me one thing and writing in their report to him a different thing.
This accident attorney thing is NOT one sided either!!!
You will be asked to keep up your side of the agreement & do some work yourself.
He will ask you questions that are extremely important to your case ( things you may have forgotten ).
You will be asked to keep all receipts & mailings from doctors & medicine, making sure he receives copies for your file.
A periodic informative letter of explaining how you are feeling & how things are going from your view are also
added to your file.
Having your feelings heard, read and understood is a ton of stress off your shoulders.
I am a Very Honest Person.
I am writing to let you know, JON FRIEDMAN IS BRUTALLY HONEST !!!
He will let you know when things are not going well.
He will let you know when things are fabulous.
My case has ended as of July 2010.
Jon ADVISED ME AS MY ATTORNEY, TO MY 100% SATISFACTION & I COULD NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE!!!
I have thanked the person who referred me to Jon many times & I have also referred a new client to Jon as well.
If this ever happens to me again (I hope not)...
I WILL HAVE JON FRIEDMAN ON MY SIDE AGAIN!!!
