I worked with Ian Stauffer and Jennifer for 7 years after I was hit by a truck tire. They were always very patient and explained everything in great detail to me and my family. I always felt that they had my best interest in mind! I am very satisfied with our result and can’t thank Ian and Jennifer enough for everything.

Extremely patient and supportive

We wanted to express our sincere thanks to Ian Stauffer and Jennifer Wilson for all they have done for us during this highly stressful time when my sister was hit as a pedestrian and suffered multiple injuries including a brain injury 5 years ago. You and your team have been extremely patient and supportive, clear and transparent in your discussions with us. You had our best interest in my sister’s case and it wasn’t all about the money. You helped with superior referrals for care professionals that would aid in her recovery as well as lend an ear when we had so many questions about the claims process and lawsuit. We cannot express our thanks enough for all you have done to help her find a future that she can be secure in now that she cannot work.

Always responsive

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.

Very successful outcome

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 for a very successful outcome. I more than highly recommend Ian Stauffer and his whole team.

Felt like Family 

This firm was amazing. I never once felt like a client, I always felt like family. I was never rushed and things were explained to me as many times as I needed them to be without any problems. Jen was amazing. She checked in with me often and if I had any problems at all I just called her and it was solved right away. I never had to wait or call again. I was kept informed all the way through the settlement of the case.

I especially appreciate the attention that Jen gave to me and my family,  making sure that we were always taken care of. I was very pleased with the outcome and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this firm, especially Ian Stauffer and Jen.
