Very helpful
I was involved in a car accident, and I needed some advice. The office was very professional, and help me answer a lot of questions that I didn’t know the answers to. If I am ever in an accident where I am hurt I am definitely going to call them again.

Had a great result
I hired this lawyer for a case in Silver Spring. He helped me get to a good orthopaedist, and when I got better, helped me to get a good settlement on my case. I was happy with my result - not huge, but better than I expected. I definitely recommend him!

Great! Always kept me informed.
They always called me. With myself being so busy. I never really called them. They always called me to make sure I was happy, and to give me updates. And they were always honest, whether the news was good or bad. I had a bad lawyer before them, and I'm glad I switched!
Response from Joseph Blaszkow March 26, 2020
Thank you! We are very glad that you came to our firm, and we were able to get you a much better result!

Great Experience
Mr.Joseph and the team did a brilliant work on my case. I was involved into an accident while driving my bike and at this time didn't even expect that I'll get so professional assistance. I strongly recommend this attorney.

Great job!
I came from another lawyer to Mr Blaszkow. I couldn't ask for a better lawyer, from start to finish. It was like night and day. - I wish I would have come here first!

Did a great job with my personal injury case due to a car accident
Mr. Blaszkow, He did a great job on my personal injury case in 2014. He took the time to know every detail of my case and kept me up to date with any changes. He really cares about his clients and is committed to doing his best. He was able to get me the highest amount possible in my case. He also advised me on my car insurance policy and changed I should make to protect myself in the event I have another car accident. Very grateful to Joe and his team! I highly recommend him!

The Best Attorney!
Mr. Blaszkow and his team represented me in an accident in which I was seriously injured. Before reaching to Mr. Blaszkow, I called many attorneys in Virginia because I needed to hire an attorney but none of them took me seriously and did not respond to my calls. Mr. Blaszkow returned my call and met with me (at my convenient time because I was injured and in pain after the accident) to talk about my accident and situation. Mr. Blaszkow explained to me the entire process, injury law and regualtions impacting my situation and what next steps are needed to resolve this case. During the process, Mr. Blaszkow and his team turned out to be nothing less than excellent, caring, ethical, innovative, and brilliant the law-firm. I had never needed a lawyer in this capacity before so the whole process was new to me. Whenever I had a question, Mr. Blaszkow was available to answer them and his responses were always very thoughtful and thorough. With time, my case turned out to be a complicated case that I could see other lawyers may have steered away from, but Mr. Blaszkow team seemed to overcome this challenge. The outcome was even better than we hoped for! I would recommend him highly with great confidence!

Great job!
Mr. Blaszkow was able to give me his full attention when we met, and the information he imparted was key to developing an effective strategy for my case. His staff was excellent in responding to my questions. He did a great job with handling something that popped up as an unforeseen result of my initial case.

Helped me with a tripping case in DC
I fell on a sidewalk that was busted up by a tree. I hired Mr. Blaszkow to represent me because he had helped me with a past car accident. His office kept me well informed, and answered all my questions. He helped me get a good result from the District. I definitely recommend him to people.
Response from Joseph Blaszkow August 23, 2017
There is no better endorsement that a repeat customer who is happy with his service. Thank you Darnell - we are always appreciative of positive reviews!

Helped me with my car and case
I hired Mr. Blaszkow after I was in a car accident and he did a good job on my case - I was hit by another car and had some big medical bills. I got a good settlement for my case. He also helped me get me reimbursed for diminished value. I definitely recommend him! He was always able to answer my questions and has good staff.
Response from Joseph Blaszkow August 23, 2017
Thank you, Ambrosia. Diminished value claims are something we deal with frequently, and we're very glad we were able to help you!

Well satisfied
I was recently represented by the Blaszkow Law Firm in a personal injury matter. I am very happy with Mr. Blaszkow and his office staff. My phone calls were always returned on a timely basis, and all my questions were answered. I was kept well informed in the past year on all details of my case.

Very impressive
I had never needed to hire an attorney for a personal injury case before so I had no idea what to expect. I thought my case was small compared to others you see or hear about in general. Mr. Blaszkow and his entire staff treated me and my case as if it were one of their most important. I never felt my case insignificant or hardly worth their time and felt they committed the same amount of time and concern to coordinating and negotiating my case as they would have to some multi-million dollar case. I was extremely happy with the overall service provided. I was very impressed with how caring they were about my injuries and their focus on me getting the medical and rehabilitative services I needed to get better. I felt that they truly cared about me, not just as another case to process. They explained the process and sequence of steps typically followed in cases like mine and let me know of the progress being made. I would recommend their services to anyone in need of any type of legal representation whether civil or criminal. They truly represent and care for their clients at often the most critical time in a person's life that their services are needed. I was impressed by Mr. Blaszkow's availability by phone, text, and email. I received timely responses from him and his staff on the progress of my case.

Great Personal Injury Attorney
Dear Mr. Blaszkow: Please allow this letter to serve as my thank you for all the hard work that you put into my personal injury case. You did a slendid job in expediting all paperwork concerning my case. You kept me up to speed on how my case was progressing, and anything that I inquired about, you had the answer. We always had a one-on-one when I came to your office. I have not known an attorney that cared about his clietnts and their welfare so much. If ever I need the assistance of an attorney, I will be calling on your office to represent me. I have and will still refer clients to you. I hold you in high regard. Again, thank you for representing me and the speedy outcome of my personal injury case. PA, Leesburg, VA - July 2012
