About Jonathan

Learn Jonathan’s areas of practice.

To Jonathan S. Damashek, the best part of his job is standing up for people who deserve their day in court. “I like fighting for the little guy against the large corporate defendants and insurance carriers to help them recover what they lost in their lives,” he says. In this regard, Mr. Damashek seeks to recover monetary compensation for his clients that covers their past and future pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost earnings and benefits, and loss of their enjoyment of life.

Following an accident, injury victims begin getting phone calls from insurers and the other party’s legal counsel. If you’ve incurred harm in a car crash or other personal injury accident, your focus should be on your health, not fielding messages from people trying to get you to settle your case for far less than it’s worth. Mr. Damashek understands the frustration surrounding this type of communication, and is prepared to handle it for you. While you concentrate on getting healthy, let him fight for you.
