1
Practice area

Mike Hostilo has practiced law in the state of Georgia for the past 21 years. Known as an intense negotiator, he has recovered millions in settlements for accident victims as a personal injury lawyer.

Mike’s father was born in Emanuel County and raised in Savannah, Georgia. A career Marine, Mike learned discipline and hard work from his dad. Mike’s mother, a native of Japan, moved to America in the racially turbulent 1960’s. As an interracial couple, the Hostilo’s faced many social challenges. From his upbringing, Mike learned the value of hard work, discipline, perseverance, persistence and the ability to be open-minded to all cultures and races.

Mike graduated from the University of Georgia and then attended Atlanta Law School, working as many as three jobs simultaneously during the pursuit of his legal education. His diverse employment experiences allowed him to view life from many perspectives. He has worked in a variety of industries, including construction, security, food delivery and newspaper delivery, and held positions such as truck driver, store clerk, caddie, lawn maintainer, telemarketer and teacher. Mike values hard work, which has led him to become a lawyer for the people.

Upon graduation from law school in 1992, Mike returned to the lowcountry to practice with former Marine George A. Zettler. The late, great Zettler reinforced the honesty, patience and good judgment that had been instilled in Mike by his parents.

Zettler quickly recognized Mike’s ability to relate to people and fight for their causes. Mike rapidly ascended to the ranks of partnership by 1995. Throughout his legal career, Mike has maintained offices in Savannah, Statesboro, Augusta and Atlanta. Since 2007, Mike has devoted his practice to personal injury law, helping injured victims throughout Georgia with offices in Savannah, Macon and Augusta.

Mike is extremely active in his community, contributing his time, services and money toward worthy local initiatives. He frequently donates free legal services to veterans and government officials, while also donating financially to a number of organizations throughout Georgia. In addition, Mike contributes time to his alma mater, the University of Georgia, the Hostilo Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club of Savannah, Beaufort Academy and the First Tee of Savannah.

Brand new case
I called Mike Friday, on Monday I have had an appointment with JM. She met me at a location on my choice to gather the information she needs to begin work. I have a feeling this is a good decision for me because the accident I have recently been involved in has so many different crazy factors going on. I know I need someone to help guide me through this. Meetin JM was like meeting my sister for lunch. She listened intently to every word I said. She was fast at getting all the info collected from me. She helped me and made sure I didn’t have to carry heavy items or move anything heavy. She even bought me lunch! She has definitely already impressed me with her perfessionlism and caring kindnes. I feel like I am in good hands. I will update my experience as I take this journey to the end. So far all I can say is if you need to do yourself a favor call Mike! I feel like they will be good for me and u too if you find yourself in a situation needing professional help.

Absolute Professionals!
I’m so impressed by which this firm takes care of business. This team of people are accessible and prompt. From my initial appointment with Janovia whom is hands down impressive and diligent in her part of the process. Tasha, an awesome communicator. It’s obvious Mike and his team care about their clients. It shows through their work! I’d rate more stars if I could!

Truly Cares about Clients
No matter how many times I called or followed up with my case someone always return my call or updated me with the latest info on my claim. This guy really knows modern techniques to handle claims instead of old traditional ways, even when I needed some money up front I got a settlement claim loan until my settlement came in and then I had received the rest of my money later! Mike Hostilo firm really put people interest at heart! Special thanks to Joel Callaway!

Communicate with your legal team, that’s what they are there for!
Reading other reviews, it is clear that many people do not understand their case nor participate in the process of the settlement. Jason Wolf, the Attorney advocating the case on my behalf and his Paralegal Nate are very thoughtful and thorough. They demonstrate almost an immediate response rate to emails or calls whenever I have a question or check in on the status of the case. Mike himself has been readily available when responding to message I have left on two occasions. Patience is a virtue, no law firm is capable of paying out some huge settlement with only a month or so after being retained. The Attorney on the clients behalf is literally fighting insurance companies to other law firms and hospital PT information records all day everyday from all directions. Understanding your case is crucial. Personal injury is delicate because we all feel we deserve the maximum dollar amount that is glorified by other firms commercials. It’s personal injury yet there are still statutes of limitations and fair settlement amounts pertaining to the individual details of each case. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MIKES FIRM AND ADVISE THAT AS A CLIENT YOU EDUCATE YOURSELF ON DETAILS OF YOUR PARTICULAR CASE BY COMMUNICATING AND ASKING QUESTIONS.

Great Experience
I heard about the Hostilo Firm through some family who used them previously. They had a great experience. So I called them when I had my auto accident. They was very nice and very helpful. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I was involved in an accident and my insurance company at the time was less than helpful. My family and I had done business with the insurance company for over 10 years yet I was treated as if I was just a number instead of a loyal customer. Long story short, after getting the run around; I called Mike and his firm was effective and efficient in handling my case. Communication was excellent and I never had to worry about not being able to reach anyone when I needed. I recommend Mike Hostilo to anyone.
