Attorney Profile

“I have the greatest job in the world,” says Rick Jaklitsch, founder of The Jaklitsch Law Group. A nationally acclaimed personal injury trial attorney who has won multiple “Lawyer of the Year” awards, Rick cares deeply about his clients and his community, and he works hard to serve them both. 

When people’s lives have been upended by personal injury, Rick puts their world back together again.  He has handled thousands of personal injury cases, and no case is too big or too small. From winning multi million-dollar damage awards to ensuring his clients get every penny of insurance benefits, Rick will fight for what is right for his clients.

Rick’s three-lawyer firm is like a family.  Many of Rick’s staff members have worked with him for more than 20 years.  “I’m so lucky—I have the greatest staff.  Every single person in our office is 100% committed to excellence,” explains Rick.  “Everyone does whatever it takes to make sure the client is thrilled with our service and results.”  This family dynamic and extraordinary staff loyalty are key to the firm’s success.

The Jaklitsch Law Group is a family practice in more ways than one. The majority of Rick’s clients are referred to him by people he’s previously represented, and he is trusted by generations of families. “We know we are doing right by our clients when they send their loved ones to us,” says Rick.

Rick has won numerous legal awards and his firm was chosen by Global Business Insight as “Best Personal Injury Trial Law Firm – USA.”  The firm has been selected by Newsweek at a Top Law Firm 2020. Rick is both humbled and proud that his small firm has achieved this national recognition. But he is even more proud of the impact he and his firm have made by bettering the lives of his clients.
