Outstanding Attorney, highly recommend!
I was referred to Rourke & Blumenthal when my son needed representation in a personal injury. Jonathan was the recommended attorney based on the details. The issue was a little complicated at the beginning, because my son had started a case with another law firm, but that attorney had a sudden death. From the very first time we consulted with Jon, we immediately felt at ease. He was calm, compassionate and positive about our case potential. He really listened to my son and talked to him in a way he could understand. He made us feel confident about his competence, and we retained his services. Over the following several months, Jon kept in close contact with us, and gave us regular updates. In the middle of our case, the Covid-19 Pandemic hit. But did that stop Jon? Far from it! He kept in regular contact with us through email and phone calls. After the mandatory quarantine that was imposed on America, and the subsequent social restrictions here in Ohio, he seemed to redouble his efforts. His office made accommodations for socially-distant meetings using the CDC guidelines for safety where we all wore masks, kept 6 feet apart and had access to several hand sanitizer stations. Jon picked up where we left off and it seemed like a blur from there, it feels to me like he worked even harder to get my son’s case resolved. I cannot say one negative thing about Jon. However, I have plenty of good things, some of which I’ve already said. Jon, you’re a credit and a real asset to Rourke & Blumenthal and I’m so happy to have met such a good person and outstanding attorney. Keep up the great work!

The very best
Jon was absolutely outstanding to work with! Our case was a lengthy process with many moving parts and he worked through it with ease! He worked around my husbands very busy schedule as well as our relocation about 2 hours away from Columbus. They helped us stay organized and they were constantly following up with us to give us updates and put our minds at ease. He treated us like family and we are forever grateful for everything he did for us. I would recommend Jon hands down to anyone in the Ohio area!

Personal Injury
Mr. Stoudt was hired to represent my daughter who was injured in an automobile accident. He alleviated all stress from us regarding bills, paperwork, insurance, etc. Whenever we received any documents regarding the matter, we simply forwarded everything to him and he took care of it so we could focus simply on my daughter's health. I can not say enough about how helpful, effective, and quick to respond to us he was whenever we had any questions. I would not hesitate to use him again.

Wrongful Death
Jonathan did an amazing job in my and my daughter's case. He was actively involved and always informative whenever questions arose. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done for my daughter. I would highly recommend Jonathan and this firm to anyone. Jonathan made us feel he was genuinely involved with our lives throughout our ordeal. My daughter and I had a special case, which kept Jonathan on his toes =) ...but in the end, we are beyond grateful.

Jonathan R. Stoudt, Esquire
I was personally referred to the firm of Rourke & Blumenthal, LLP, by a member of the Columbus, Ohio legal community. Jonathan R. Stoudt, Esquire received my telephone call with professionalism and empathy in regards to my personal injury accident. We met and we mutually agreed that he would represent me in my personal injury case. What I found most brilliant about Esquire was his candor and receptiveness of my forthrightness. Essentially, we had a mutual working exchange in our communication a vital component for us to work unified. This built the foundation for a settlement agreement that would harbor no misconceptions or unrealistic monetary expectations. The information he provided regarding personal injury settlements in Ohio was verifiable, he encouraged to perform my due diligence. Upon, completing my investigative work, this established in me an unwavering confidence that Jonathan R. Stoudt, Esquire would be diligent in how he would pursue the handling of my case. As time marched forward and the case did not, Esquire was cognizant of the emotional, physical and economic hardship that my personal injury case had leveled upon me. Consequently, he worked proficiently at crafting a resolution for my case that was beneficial for me, yet ethically moral and within the working structure available to him. His legal capacity presented me with a settlement that was congruent with our established goals.

Absolutely loved working with Jonathon! My case was successfully resolved!
Jonathon listened to me as we mutually decided to move forward with my case. I had been turned away by more law firms than I can count. He kept me in the loop @ all times throughout the life of my case. He treated me as a person and not just a case number to just be worked. Jonathan worked tirelessly to move my case to its final positive resolution. He is a great negotiator and as we went though the process, he guided me to a great settlement that was beyond what I expected. I would tell any friend or family member to pick him as their attorney!

Personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice
Jonathan did a wonderful job working with the insurance company that represented the party of which I was injured on their property. Jonathan was very detailed and kept me updated continually. Very professional and respectful of my time.

Jon Stoudt
I was in a car accident and had been through mentally and physically taxing recoveries. Although I was going through this, I never was bothered by Jon asking questions as he was always polite and gave me time to respond. He always was good to get to the point. I was afraid that our case would take a long time and we would have to go to court but Jon was great and was able to get everything done sooner than expected and better as well! I highly suggest Jon and if I were to ever get in an accident again, which I certainly hope I do not, I will contact him!

For Jon Stoudt
I can't say how much I appreciate Jons council on my case. Knowing that he was not a expert in real estate law, he still represented me in a manner that was beneficial for my family and I. Jon saved me over thirty thousand dollars when I didn't have a nickel to my name. If I haven't said it enough times already, thank you for everything. Jon is a true asset to this firm.
