Hit By A Car While Visiting From Out Of State
We reside a long way outside of Florida, and when I was hit by a car while visiting Miami, I was told I needed to have an attorney from the area. As a retired veterinarian, I understood the details of my injuries better than most patients, but the legal and insurance issues were an entirely different matter. My case was lengthy and too complicated for us to proceed on our own. We needed an advocate who understood the legal process, various insurance concerns, and sensitive medical billing issues. I was surprised at the positive results Scott was able to achieve through his tireless advocacy and expertise. There was always plenty of communication and sharing of documents through email. I was also impressed that when I called, I almost always spoke directly to Scott Jontiff himself and if he was not available, he returned my calls promptly! However, we travel a lot in an RV and were thus not always accessible due to being away from phone and internet services. Scott and Carol were patient and kind while dealing with us and worked diligently to resolve any issues that arose while we were away on trips. As Scott said to me, “You focus on getting better and I'll take care of the case.” Thanks to Scott and Carol, we were able to do just that. If you have had the misfortune of being injured in some way, you have my sympathy, my best wishes for your recovery, and my sincere recommendation to give yourself every advantage by having Scott Jontiff handle your case.

My excellent experience
I highly recommend the Jontiff & Jontiff law firm. They have decades of experience, they know personal injury and insurance law, they are professional, accessible, responsive and they keep you informed. Scott Jontiff represented me after my right foot was injured and I didn’t know what to do. The place where I was injured would not do anything to help me out. Another lawyer told me Jontiff & Jontiff is the best personal injury law firm in Miami. I made an appointment with Scott, he explained the whole process, walked me through the entire process and was always available to answer all my questions. Scott knows the law and the personal injury system, he kept me informed throughout the entire case and he ended up settling my case for much more money than I ever expected to get. If anything were to happen to me in the future, Scott is the first person I will call. I will refer Scott to my family, my friends and anyone else who needs an injury attorney. If you are reading this, SCOTT JONTIFF IS YOUR GUY

Very profecional
Very good, profecional and responsible lawyer. His office was in contact with me every time they had new information. Step by step Mr. Jontiff would explain to me what is going on with my case. I didn't have to wait for years for results. So far from what I hear from other people about their cases Mr. Jontiff is the best.

Very good twice
Scott Jontiff has twice helped me in my past. He has been a very good advisor to deal with people and companies including: - insurance company who tries to avoid to pay their uninsured motorist policy (insurance tried to avoid to pay my broken bones expenses, despite Mount Sinai MRI and surgeon statements), - hospital (hospital sending a bill 18 months after service were finished and healthcare provider requested). I would though give one advice to Scott : make his ancillary fees more transparent and reasonable (storing hard copies and records should be inexpensive nowadays). I would definitely advise anybody to go with Scott without any doubt.
