Elevator Accident
Mr. Stillman gave me very valuable free legal advice. His advice set the perfect tone for my own successful settlement of my personal injury case. I believe Mr. Stillman really cared about the outcome of my case, when others did not. Thank you Sir for being there when I needed help. David C. B, Knoxville, TN

Great firm
I love working with this firm. I am currently in the process of applying for disability and got tired of doing it on my own. I went to them and now feel like I've got the help and support to go further and continue the process. They are all courteous and friendly. I recommend using this firm with any needs that may come up that they work with. Thank you Jay and thank you to your entire firm.

Amazing!
This firm is amazing! They are efficient, caring and down to earth! They treat you like a real person, not cattle or a number. I can speak with ANY attorney or paralegal and they know exactly what is going on in my claim. I have never dealt with a law firm that has so much passion for their clients. Thank you Stillman & Friedland for making me feel safe and comfortable with my decision to let you represent me!

a very different lawyer, excellent!
after calling several attorneys, the last call was to Jay Stillman, stillman and friedland. jay took the time to explain everything, and i knew he really understood. his firm handled my car accident case, from start to finish. they did every detail, squeezed every dollar in settlement and paying back medicare. this saved me a lot on money. they knew what i should do and not do, should say and not say. i am very impressed with jay's firm. experienced, and really care. to me , that made all the difference. i wasn't permanently disabled, but i hurt a lot for months. jay got me the best settlement, more than i expected. i recommend the firm to anyone.

Car Accident Saviors
I was in a car accident and when I called Mr. Stillman, he nearly saved my life with his advice. Without thinking, Mr. Stillman and his team gave me the right advice on how to proceed with my medical coverage and how to deal with the insurance company. My settlement was significantly higher because of this advice. Also, Mr. Stillman continually showed how he genuinely cared for my well-being throughout the tough process. I honestly can say I was hesitant to get a lawyer, but in the end, I found people who treated me more like a good friend or family member.

An Attorney with a Heart!
My experience with Jay and his firm has been nothing but positive. Jay is not just another accident attorney looking to make a quick buck off his clients' misfortunes. He is genuinely concerned about their well-being and is an attorney that truly cares! Highly recommended to anyone in Nashville or anywhere in the state of Tennessee.

BMW Totaled
Jay is a fantastic Attorney and his knowledge is extensive. I like Jay because the first time I called him he reassured me and laid out this plan of action to assist me in very clear terms. I felt from the first minute on the phone that I would be dealing with a smart guy and by the end of this process I was even more surprised with the payment Jay was able to land me. Jay was always honest with me and did a pretty good job keeping me in the loop at every stage of my legal process. You can't go wrong with Mr. Stillman.
