Thank you Jason
I was reluctant to try for disability, even with long standing multiple sclerosis. I knew I could no longer work full time, with my symptoms, but I questioned if I would win a disability case. I was referred to Jason, and he treated with respect from day one. He was very thorough in explaining the process, and answered all my questions with patience. He stayed with my case, even though I was denied a few times, but I finally won. Jason, thank you for all the time that you spent on my case. I appreciated his approachable demeanor, his honesty, humor and professionalism. A down to earth attorney who made me feel comfortable. Thank you.

Workers Compensation
I retained Attorney Oldenburg to handle my workers compensation case when my claim was denied by the work comp carrier. Attorney Oldenburg was very informative throughout the entire process, I was never left feeling like I did not understand what was going on with my case and most importantly, I was never mislead. Attorney Oldenburg is honest and never misrepresented himself in any way. Attorney Oldenburg's staff is very professional and thorough. The compassion that I felt from Attorney Oldenburg and his team is very hard to find now a days. My workers compensation claim took time, but we never gave up and had an amazing outcome.

Works for me
A friend of mine recommended Jason to help me get through the process of applying for Social Security Disability. He pretty much did everything except sign the papers. If I had any questions and he was not available at the time, he would get back to me promptly. I never felt like I had to worry about a thing. He dotted every “I” and crossed every “T”. So glad I had Jason working for me. Jason will be the first call I make if the need ever arrises again.

Workers compensation
Jason was recommended to me by my physician. After meeting with him I felt that confidence that he would do all that he could to resolve the problems that were involved with my claim. My case was not going to be a large money deal but it was important to my family, and Jason treated accordingly. The legal system works slowly but I was kept informed of the process and the steps that were needed to be taken. In the end I was satisfied with the outcome and if the situation ever happens again I know who to call.

An experienced attorney for personal Injury case
For personal injury case, finding an attorney who understands your pains and feelings is hard these days. Lucky for me, I use my brother’s recommendation, and hired attorney Jason Oldenburg. He understands all my pains and need. He walked me through with advice and solutions from the surgery schedule to the court case. Although I hired him late but he was able to go through the files and helped out with lost wages and winning the case. His experience is something I will recommend to any who really wants a win-win. He’s an experienced attorney.

Jason Oldenburg did an excellent job in my case. Anytime I needed any information or questions answered He always provided it promptly. Jason was always professional and very thorough in every aspect of my case. Ever time I went to the office he made me feel very comfortable and never rushed. You can tell he really takes pride in his work and cares about about his clients rights. It was tough enough going through my injury and I can't tell you how glad I was to have a great lawyer.

Does not keep his word/never return phone calls after highering
Hired Jason for a work comp case. I know my case was going to be rather involved so I sought out a lawyer through my Teamsters union. The Teamsters Lawyer out of Washington state recommended Jason. After initial consult, I felt quite confident with Jason. However, at this point I felt compelled to write this review. Over the months and months at this point of my surgery, having difficulties with the insurance company with TTD benefits, and not receiving medical devices needed for recovery that the insurance did not want to cover, I made several phone calls to Jason‘s office. The first phone call I placed to him with questions about the insurance company/ work comp carrier went unanswered for more than three weeks. When I contacted his office again, I was told that I needed to set up an appointment for him to call me back. This was accomplished with an appointment date, however, I did not get a call back. I called his office again, and was put on hold for him to finally pick up the telephone. this was after my scheduled appointment time. The Work Comp insurance finally came through approving the medical device with the help of DWD Madison Wisconsin work Comp division, (not Jason) that I needed after my surgery, but once again, I did that with the help of the Work Comp division in Madison Wisconsin not Jason. I also needed Jason to help me fill out a hearing request with the state of Wisconsin against the work comp insurance carrier because they were not paying me the correct TTD benefit amount. TTD benefits at this point in time are still stalled. The Work Comp carrier hasn’t done anything to adjust the weekly benefit amount. I finally got the division DWD Madison Work Comp involved. Jason Oldenburg was not. I had to do this on my own. The state took a look at all of the monetary/medical equipment that I needed. And they have been the only ones that could give me any kind of help at this point seeing that Jason did not. The state did all the TTD financial calculations, (which at this point the Work Comp carrier has not adjusted ) and stepped in about the medical device that I needed after my surgery six weeks after the surgery. I also requested the paperwork for hearing with the lawyers from the DWD Work Comp division in Madison. I received the paperwork and it was quite perplexing, and I didn’t want to try and fill it out myself. When I received the paperwork from the Work Comp division in Madison Wisconsin, I looked over the paperwork, called Jason‘s office, and talked to Ashley at the front desk, requesting a return phone call from Jason. After 2 1/2 weeks it never happened, he never did call me back. That’s enough for me. If you can’t count on someone upfront before things get complex, how can you trust him when things start to get dicey/complex. He apologized to me after the first unanswered phone call months ago, and said he would do better, keep me informed, “and to give him another chance” retaining him as a lawyer. I agreed to give him another chance and he did it again (no call back) I need help with my TTD benefits, he has been no help. I will not give or put my trust in a lawyer that cannot simply return a phone call. Anybody who Reads this review may think I am distraught, upset, or angry. I am not, just just very disappointed. I wish Jason Oldenburg and his law firm well, he’s just not for me! I dissolved the client/lawyer relationship.
