Jason P. Sultzer, the founding partner of The Sultzer Law Group P.C., takes complex litigation and catastrophic personal injury seriously. Handling clients nationwide in a variety of legal issues – such as class action lawsuits, product and premises liability, asbestos defense, mass torts, commercial litigation, risk management and employment litigation – Mr. Sultzer's firm has developed a reputation for highly efficient, aggressive representation.

Mr. Sultzer has gained recognition for achieving successful outcomes in countless state and federal lawsuits, including highly publicized defense and prosecution cases involving nationally recognized companies. His numerous successes have won millions of dollars for businesses and individual clients on both the plaintiff and the defense sides of the courtroom.

Before opening his law firm, Mr. Sultzer served as co-chairman of the class action practice group for one of the largest law firms in the country, and also worked as in-house counsel for Owens Corning.
