Exceeds all expectations
We hired Zlata to represent a family member in a very serious automobile accident. She did an outstanding job. She was truly able to achieve the impossible. Not only was she highly professional, she took the time to listen and impressed us with her knowledge and insight. She was always available to answer any questions that arose along the way and that is extremely important. She was able to provide the service and guidance she said she would every step of the way. At the end she was able to obtain a settlement way above of what we expected. I can honestly say she will go above and beyond in her representation. Thank you Zlata!

If you want the best choose Rudikh & Associates
The competence, knowledge, professionalism, empathy, and attention provided to me and my case by Zlata and her team has been absolutely mindblowing. Most attorneys operate on a set it and forget it bases, in other words you pay your retainer and then you don't hear back from them for 3 years. Not at this law firm; they work diligently from day 1 to get their clients results and compensation, and they do it with utmost regard and respect toward their clients and the sensitive issues they are dealing with. There is no other law firm I would ever consider for my or my family's legal needs. If you want the best choose Rudikh & Associates!

Personal Injury/Car Accident
After my accident I didn't know who to turn to, and a friend recommended me to Rudikh and Associates. From our first meeting I knew I was in good hands, they explained every scenario in detail and put all my fears to rest. I never had to reach out to them once, throughout our time together they continued to contact me and give updates on my case. During every deposition and hearing it was clear to me that I made the right choice, they handled themselves professionally and were prepared for whatever came their way. I felt that they truly cared about me throughout the entire proceedings. Even now that my case has been settled amicably, they continue to contact me to make sure things are well. I would recommend Zlata and her entire staff to anyone who needs a personal injury attorney.

“Attentive, Professional and Know About the Law…”
I referred Zlata Rudikh from Rudikh & Associates, LLC to a friend needing help with a personal injury he received in a car accident. Having worked with this firm myself, I was sure they would be able to deliver results. My friend was very happy when they settled for more than was hoped. This New Jersey law firm makes clients feel comfortable and they were attentive, professional and know about the law. I recommend Rudikh & Associates, LLC for all your legal personal injury needs.

Thank you so much for all your hard work
My injuries came as a result of a slip and fall accident. I never gave it much thought until some time later when the injury started to reveal its evil eye. Personal Injury Attorney Zlata Rudikh at Rudikh & Associates guided me through the legal process, insurance, and provided me with all the legal support and knowledge that I needed. She was able to get me the best settlement I could have imagined. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication.

This team (a husband and a wife) is a joke and a complete fraud...........You, as a client, cannot even get them on the phone. Jessica, a paralegal I guess (?), is the one answering all the questions. You cannot bypass Jessica, don't even try. You cannot talk to your lawyer either because "she is not available" ever. This group dropped my case without even notifying me. Beware.

Response from Zlata Rudikh July 25, 2017
Thank you for your review. We are sorry you feel the way that you do. We wanted to take this opportunity to respond to your assertions (as we have done so previously). Unfortunately, after you retained our services, specifically on April 11, 2016 and through further investigation and evaluation of your medical treatment from which you were discharged only a few months post accident, you did not sustain a permanent personal injury. After advising you of same by way of telephone, on September 12, 2016 we sent to you via certified mail (for which you signed and a green card was returned back to my office) and regular mail, a detailed letter advising you as to why we will no longer continue to represent you in this case and furthermore advised you of your legal rights to seek another attorneys assistance, together with your statute of limitations time frame limitations. While we understand that it is disheartening to find out that according to the New Jersey Automobile Law that you are not able to seek compensation for non-economic damages that are not permanent in nature, that is unfortunately not within our firm's control. I am puzzled as to why you waited over 10 months to express your frustration, nevertheless, I stand available to you should you wish to discuss any additional information. While we regret that you feel the way that you do and that we were unable to pursue our representation of you, we continue to wish you the best of luck.
