After surviving a tragic accident and spending more than three months in the hospital it was a blessing to have Ian Stauffer and his staff looking after all the legalities of my case.  His expertise was invaluable in navigating through the complexity of the insurance system and this allowed me the time to focus on recovering from injuries. The work he and his team did was outstanding and I am filled with gratitude and appreciation on a very successful outcome. I more than highly recommend Ian Stauffer and his whole team. – S.R.

I am very happy with the legal services I received from Mr. Ian Stauffer. My concerns were put to rest when I found Mr. Stauffer. He explained everything that was going to happen and was always responsive to my questions, and concerns. He took the time to explain options so we could weigh the pros and cons of each and come to a conclusion together. We finally settled the case this year and I credit the wonderful outcome to Ian.

I would highly recommend Mr. Ian Stauffer. He is a true professional at all times and knows his way around the personal injury legal system. He went well above and beyond what was expected and was fair with his billing as well. – J.K
