Excellent Attorney!!!
i was involved in an automobile accident last august, in which my vehicle was totaled and I sustained significant injuries as a result. The person who struck my vehicle didn't have auto insurance at the time of the accident. In addition, I only had limited tort coverage on my policy. I have never filed a lawsuit before and I was unsure as to what I needed to do. After consulting with my family, I decided to seek legal counsel. I started calling several law firms, but I was turned off by some of the feedback I was getting. It was different, however, when I called Ostroff Injury Law. From my initial phone interview, I knew that I had found the perfect law firm to represent me! As I mentioned before, I had limited tort with my policy and I didn't feel very confident that I would be able to recover very much in terms of damages. From the start, Rich assured me that they would do whatever was necessary to seek damages. It was a long process, but Rich stayed in constant contact with me throughout the entire process. All I can say is that it was worth the wait, as we recently received a settlement FAR EXCEEDING what we had expected! Rich & his associates at Ostroff Injury Law went the extra mile and were a pleasure to work with. I would strongly recommend Richard Godshall and the team at Ostroff Injury Law to anyone looking for legal advice!!!

When the time comes, ask for Rich. Period.
Professional, realistic, hardworking, and a trusted expert in injury law, Rich Godshall took the reigns of my case when it was relatively new at a time when I was still uncertain that anyone could truly help. From the case's beginning to it's current phase, Rich has consistently delivered. I now have no doubt that Mr. Godshall will tirelessly fight on my behalf to ensure that I receive proper compensation for the injuries and personal loss I have endured. As a direct result of Rich's fantastic aptitude for working injury cases of this type, his steadfast reassurance, and consistently wise counsel, we have not only proven the validity of our case but have already witnessed results and are completely confident Rich will close out this case soon fully and fairly compensated in our case. Although I would never wish this misfortune on anyone, the best advice I could give is that if you do find yourself in an a legitimately unfortunate situation like mine, hire Ostroff Law and ask for Rich Godshall - he will shoot straight with you on the validity of your case, will not back down from any ridiculous insurance company tactics, and will continually fight hard on your behalf until your case is resolved.

Richard Godshall - Ostroff Law - Auto Accident (Legal Representation)
Initially, when I sought legal representation for my auto accident through Ostroff Law, I was completely dreading the entire process because of how complicated my case seemed. However, it didn't take long before I was quickly put at ease and realized that Richard, and the entire firm, had my very best interest at heart the entire time. I was able to put my complete faith and trust into Richard and never once doubted his abilities. Whether it was calling me during "off-hours" if necessary to answer my questions or give me an update, or dedicating as much time as I needed to helping me understand the complexity of litigation and/or the settlement process, he gave me all of the information I needed to make any necessary decisions. After everything was said and done, I was very happy with the outcome of my case and the settlement I received. In addition, nobody ever likes to think that they would ever need such representation again, but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to call on Richard again. I would recommend Ostroff Law to anyone (and have already), and I am always sure to mention Richard specifically.

Tractor trailer rear end collision.
Mr. Goodshall was a significant member of the team of lawyers that represented me with the Ostroff Law Firm for injuries that I sustained when I was hit from behind by a tractor trailer. Rich, as I came to know him, was instrumental in the monetary calculations in regard to my injuries, and my loss of income from the time of the accident to the settlement of my case. His assistance and counsel was a valuable part of the team effort that took my case to a favorable settlement.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Rich has experience and knowledge that reminds me of the best litigation attorneys, but 20 years his senior. He is a case builder from day one. He sets a plan at the very beginning, and then he methodically and exactingly follows it. When the case gets tried, he knows it is going in as well as it possibly could have, because he did everything proper and necessary to build it. The hallmark of Rich is: preparation. He drives the case, the case doesn’t drive him."
