Recommend for Car Accident
I was struck in a hit-and-run car accident. They never caught the person. My car was totaled, I had a bad concussion and upper body injuries. My insurance did not want to cover much at all. Jason dealt with the insurance companies and medical bills. Everything was taken care of. I was able to get physical therapy and replace my vehicle. He was very responsive, would highly recommend.

Absolutely excellent lawyer
Jason maintained a sense of professionalism and genuine care. He was communicative, and helped us take care of two cases at the same time. I sincerely was expecting the worst but Jason got us the best results possible. He’s friendly, and works magic! 15/10 recommend!

Highly recommend!
If your looking for a lawyer look no further then Jason ott. Jason represented me when I was charged with a felony theft. I thought my life was over and had anxiety everyday thinking about my future. Ott always had to remind me that he was in my corner and would guide me through this every step of the way. He not only works hard to get the best possible outcome for his clients he is also very personable and helped get me through this horrible time in my life. Ott got me deferred prosecution so within time I will be able to put the worst time in my life behind me. I have never been in trouble in my entire life and being charged is one of the scariest situations a person can go through. Don’t go through it alone! Hire Jason ott to represent you and get you the best possible outcome. He’s very honest and open and keeps you updated every step of the way. I highly recommend Ott to represent you.

Personally offended by the 1 star review.
I didn't think anything else needed to be said after seeing all the extremely accurate responses from his other reviews. Then I read the 1 and only bad remark. I literally double checked to make sure they were speaking about the same Jason Ott that had repersent me. I am not the easiest of clients, I'm a procrastinator, I'm very forgetful, honestly I'm probably any lawyers worst nightmare. Mr Ott not only worked with me, he also was never condescending or impatient when I gave him great reason to be. Not only did the resent health epidemic strike very close to home for him it struck him personally. Amazingly he apologized to me repeatedly for any inconvenience. (Which there was none!) I can't give him high enough praise!! Thank you Mr Ott, and thank you to his amazing family for their patience as well.

Great value, exceptional outcome
Jason provided the best outcome possible for my case. I was given unsupervised probation, did not have to do anything other than pay my fines and wait two years for the charges to be dismissed. Any other attorney I would have had community service and supervised probation. I would have forgotten about the case completely but the probation officer sent me an email reminding me of the court date to dismiss charges and that he would send me the dismissal order. Jason turned the worst point of my life into the beginning of what has become the best part of my life. His fee was incredibly fair, Zi cannot recommend him enough.

Fantastic Representation, EXCEEDED expectations
Jason represented me when I was charged with two drug possession charges; felony and misdemeanor. Jason was very open, honest, and always available when I needed to speak with him. He put in the work to get my felony charge dropped completely, and got me deferred prosecution on my misdemeanor charge. Now in 6 months, this will be off my record once I complete the terms of my probation! This could have been much, much worse and life altering, but Jason ensured everything went smoothly and gave me piece of mind every step of the way. If you need representation, HIRE JASON OTT. I cant thank him enough.

Better than expected = SOLID
Jason represented me on a hit and run property damage and failure to stop at a clear distance with a possible 8pts on my license. We spoke, he assured me we wouldn’t leave my court appearance with plea deal I didn’t want. He went in to talk to the prosecutor for a while. When they came out, we spoke... turns out zero points on my license, $460 in fines...which was a pretty surprising. I expected 2-3pts with having a prior DUI. Even better! Jason is a good dude, you can see that after speaking with him and does want the best and most comfortable outcome for your situation. I was confident in him and my situation after talking to him for 15 minutes. I definitely recommend you consulting Jason if you’re in trouble with the law.

AUTO INJURY
I was in an auto accident with a snow plow my work contracted. I was scared, worried and my job was put on the line. Jason Ott and his assistant Alana were always available by text, phone or email to provide me support. Jason fought dilegently to get me the settlement I deserved. I trust Jason and assure anyone that invests their time in him that he will take care of you in every aspect. He was so supportive it truly helped me get through the stressful situation of going through a law suit. Thank you Jason for everything you did for me. I am grateful and if I ever need a lawyer again you will be my first phone call. Elisa

Great Service
Jason and his team represented me on a 10 year old warrant that popped up on me. I was incredibly nervous until I talked to Jason, who assured me that with his help we can make this right for minimal interference on my day to day life, which was a huge relief. Jason and his team got my court fees lowered by over $20,000, and were in contact with me throughout the entire course of events letting me know exactly what to expect. I am very grateful to Jason for the service! Above and beyond what I expected, at a great rate.

Professional WINNER w/ Great Character
I secured Mr. Ott for a criminal case I had in Chicago. It was an easy choice bc after speaking to almost everyone else in town, he stood out. He was understanding about my case and eager to win! No judgement zone! His character and personality was confident, sure and made me feel at ease. He was very easy to contact throughout and very involved. In my opinion he is hands down the best! Anyone would be crazy to not choose Mr. Ott.

Charges dismissed
Jason was highly communicative with me throughout the entire legal process. I was aware of all scenarios, best and worse that may have transpired. Fortunately, the outcome was very favorable and the charges were dismissed. Thank you so much, Jason! I'm quite sure all feedback has been just as positive as my experience.

car accident
Jason was excellent when it came to working my case. Just when I gave up he continued to work and won my case. I would recommend him to anyone and hire him again if needed.

Part 1: How My Lawyer Became My Trusted Friend
In December of 2015 I was in a horrendous car accident. My SUV was totaled, I was hospitalized and had to spend months going through rehabilitation. At first I didn't think of consulting a lawyer and was just going to let my insurance handle this mess. Then I decided to consult a lawyer, but who? They're everywhere and how do you know if they are reputable? Sometimes I listen to the "Brian Dailey Law Program on WLS and decided to give them a call. Within a few hours Mr. Dailey provided me with attorney Mr. Jason Alan Ott, to undertake my Personal injury lawsuit. I liked him from the beginning because he explained to me in detail how he would work on my behalf (in layman's terms) Any question I had he would explain to me in detail. Both Jason and his Paralegal, Alana never let me feel that I was out of the loop on anything. He is a Five Star Advocate to his clients! On my behalf, he worked very hard to back me up by working with the other auto insurance company, the hospitals, rehab, physicians and any court proceedings if needed. I basically didn't have to do anything except get physically better. He always inquired as to how I was feeling physically and emotionally throughout my lawsuit and kept me updated on any issues. I have now claimed him as my "Family Lawyer" and have already referred him to several of my family and friends, who some now are working with him for their needs. Jason is definitely a rare find.
