If You Have Been Referred to Posner Law Firm You're in Luck!
I am very fortunate to have been referred to Jason Posner after having been involved in a motor vehicle collision as a bicyclist by a well-respected law firm in Portland. Jason did a wonderful job guiding me through all the legal choices in how to settle my personal injury insurance claims settlement by carefully listening to my wishes and providing expert opinion and advisement. This allowed me to focus on the healing I needed and not having to worry if I was being well represented. Jason has all the great qualities that I could have hoped for; he is a super caring and compassionate person with great integrity and as a legal representative did an outstanding job, thoroughly handling all phases of the claims process, navigating between the multiple insurers and policies resulting in a settlement that I could not have gotten on my own. Given my very positive experience with Posner law firm I unequivocally recommend hiring Jason as a very skillful Personal Injury Lawyer – you will be glad you did too!

Almost wish I had to go to court so I could hire him!
I consulted Jason over the period of two days while I was in the process of settling my personal injury claim for a car accident. Even from my brief dealing with him, it is clear to me he is a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney who takes excellent care of his clients. Most attorneys wouldn't even speak to me because my claim was not large enough to warrant their attention. Jason not only listened patiently and without interrupting, he took the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. Though he was clearly very busy, he never once made me feel marginalized or rushed. He even gave me feedback on the injury demand letter I'd written! I would recommend him without hesitation.

I highly recommend Jason
My husband and I hired Jason after my husband was in a bad car accident. Jason was fantastic through the long process of getting my husband the proper compensation for his current and future losses, he was educated and seemed to genuinely have my husbands and my best interest at heart. He was always more than willing to answer any and all questions and he made sure that we understood what was happening throughout the case. He was willing to make any necessary accommodations to help ease my husbands discomfort and he would also check in to see how my husband was doing. Throughout the process of the lawsuit Jason was always professional and polite and kept us informed of what was going on with the case. He was always quick to respond to any phone calls or e-mails that either my husband or I sent him. Overall he did a wonderful job and eased a lot of the stress of the lawsuit. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney in this area of law.

Couldn't have made it through without him!
Jason is an honest, caring and trustworthy attorney. Dealing with an auto collision was the most stressful event I’ve encountered in my life. Jason is clear and concise with his game plan. He takes your best interest to heart and he follows through with his word. He will realistically walk you through the options and scenarios which I appreciated not receiving false expectations. I’m extremely grateful for his guidance and support through every step of the process. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking and needing a personable, knowledgeable and supportive attorney.

Highly recommend Jason!
I was in a motor vehicle accident and was referred to Posner law firm by my chiropractor. I am so glad that we brought on Jason to help us with our claim. The process itself can be very stressful and emotional and Jason and Kenda were always very kind and patient with me. Both of them are very quick to respond and set and keep expectations of when I would hear from them. I always knew what was going on and where we were at in the process. Jason took the time to explain every step of the process. He always gave us his recommendations on how to proceed but made it very clear that the final decision was ours. We are very happy with the outcome. Jason made this difficult process easier for us and we would definitely recommend him to our friends and family if they ever find themselves in need of an attorney.

Excellent attorney....caring person.....highly recommended.
Jason Posner has represented me in two rear-end automobile accidents....the most recent accident resulting in permanent and life-altering injuries. Jason is very professional and a person of incredible integrity. He shows genuine compassion while meticulously researching and addressing the legal issues, options, and details of the case...keeping my healing and well-being as a central focus. Jason is very thorough and provided regular updates as my case moved forward. He is realistic in his expectations of the case results and shared honestly the positives and negatives....so there were no surprises. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Jason Posner....and would use his services again should the need arise.

Highly Recommend Jason!
Jason was a godsend to me. I was rear-ended in 2013 and tried to settle my medical claim by myself. Unfortunately, the person who hit me was under-insured by a well known insurance company who advertises how they can save you on car insurance. I know now, that the way they save money is to get off as cheap as they can when settling your claim. They refused to pay all of my medical bills and had I not contacted Jason, I would have had to pay thousands out of my pocket and would have received nothing for pain and suffering. He quickly took action to represent me. I can't tell you what a relief it was to not have to deal with the harrassive phone calls and letters from the claims representative from that company. Jason negotiated a fair amount to settle my claim and pay all of my medical expenses. I am so happy that he was available to help me through this stressful time. Jason is knowledgeable, professional and available if you have any questions at all. I would, and have, recommended Jason highly to anyone who needs help with a personal claim. He is top notch!

I'm very grateful to Jason
I'm very grateful to Jason for securing a settlement of my auto accident litigation that allowed me to receive the treatment that I needed to recover from my injuries. He was a great advocate for me when I needed it the most.

So glad I chose Jason Posner as my lawyer
Mr. Posner was the lawyer I decided on after a car accident left me with almost as many questions as injuries . Having never been in this position before, Jason guided me every step of the way. He made the process very easy which allowed me to focus on my healing. His above all concern was always my health first. He was very organized and on top of every aspect of the case. He is a very clear and concise communicator and always gave me options, explaining potential outcomes of each one so I knew I was making the right decisions. He came very highly recommended to me by a client, and I absolutely recommend him to everyone. I will be using his legal services again in the future for the expansion of my business and feel safe knowing he won't miss a beat.

Have the interview with Jason. You will be glad you did.
"Jason Posner is an attorney I want on my side. He is a caring individual who also understands the law. He listened to me and explained what the law allows. We then took the steps to steer my case to closure."

Above and Beyond
My lawyer withdrew from my personal injury case a few months before trial. I knew the difficulty of my particular case but also the truth of my claims. Jason provided me invaluable guidance to successfully navigate the legal arena. His communications were more timely than I ever would have expected--his responsiveness was consistently extraordinary. He proved knowledgeable and resourceful as well as careful and generous in considering my needs as well as my means. He is straightforward, genuine, and caring, and I so appreciated his commitment to me. I recommend Jason wholeheartedly. I hope never to need him again :) but am happy to have found him and to recommend him without reservation.

Helpful and Caring
Mr. Posner helped me with a personal injury case that could be considered "risky." I had done my own "evidence" collecting and knew I had a case. However, I had other lawyers that were not willing to speak for me. Jason was willing to help me from the start. Even though we both knew my situation was going to be hard to prove. Jason never gave up on me and even went out of his way during the holidays to reach out to me and make contact with the defendant's attorney. I believe him to be a genuine individual that really wants to help. I would highly recommend him. Thank you very much Jason!!

Honorable, principled and proficient attorney
My husband and I own a small business in Tigard. We pride ourselves in ensuring that we are following the laws and are in compliance at all times. We have sought out the advice of Jason Posner numerous times in the past five years. He has successfully guided us through business changes as well as potential landlord-tenant issues. We have found Jason to be knowledgeable in multiple areas of the law and has always provided us sound advice and guidance. We highly recommend Jason.

Teaching Lawyer
Jason helped us set up a system to avoid lawsuits in the making. He has shown us the power of documentation during the actual problem and improved our communication with problem tenants by reducing everything to one point of contact. Whenever we call, Jason is responsive and very thorough with his questions and preparation for court. He is thoughtful, logical and very aware of balancing risk and reward regarding the nature of our industry. I would highly recommend him.

BUSINESS LAW AND LANDLORD/TENANT LAW CLIENT
1. Jason is always very prompt in responding. If he needs to do a bit more research for a specific answer he will tell us and then respond later with the needed information. 2. He is very professional and shows great integrity. 3. Jason is very supportive of our legal situations, whatever they may be, and is willing to look for the best outcome/conclusion. He truly has our best interest at heart. 4. He has helped us with many landlord/tenant issues that we already thought we knew how to handle...and didn't. In the long run it has been a huge mental relief with some of these tenant issues to know that Jason will be on top of things for us! 5. Since meeting Jason and using his services for the past couple of years, he has earned our trust and also has earned our respect as a caring attorney who takes a personal interest in his clients.
