Testimonials

It is both personally and professionally gratifying when clients tell us how our work on their behalf has impacted their lives for the better:

“My illness has tempered my reaction to receiving the amazing settlement YOU negotiated for me.  Doug, I want to thank you and Anesi Ozmon for protecting my rights and, because my work injuries left me disabled and unable to work, allowing me to live my post-accident life with dignity.  Because of my family’s long time involvement in the Union Labor movement I have met many different people who claim to be advocates for working people, be it someone running for political or union office, third party administrators who wanted access to our benefit funds and trial attorneys who wanted to represent either the membership of my father’s carpenter local or my ironworker local.  As a certified apprentice instructor, former OSHA outreach instructor, and a certified Comet trainer, with a Bachelor’s degree, I know quite a bit about the labor movement and the history of working men and women in America.   There are only a few advocates for working people: true Democrat politicians; Labor Unions and Trial Attorneys like yourself. Not once in the decade since my accident have I ever felt that you were worried about anything other than my well-being.  The many hours you spent protecting are probably worth much more than what your firm received but I could tell that never once did you put what was in Anesi Law’s best interest which would be to settle fast and get a large return on a small amount of time, but only what was in my best interest. You and your firm are the finest advocates for working people I have had the pleasure to come across.  Once again thank you for allowing me to live with dignity and know that I will be able to provide for my son.  If not for you, my son would not have been able to attend college and with the trust we are setting up, I can be at peace that he will always be taken care of.” – Bob, Ironworker Local 1

“Money doesn’t take away the pain. Money doesn’t give you your dignity back. You can have all the money in the world and not want to look in the mirror. What you have always done for me is treat me with respect and humility. Money can never buy that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

“I truly appreciate your patience and the manner in which you dealt with my uncertainties and concerns. I am confident that my case is in good hands (and minds) and that I am fortunate to have her in my corner.”

“Every phase of [his] courtroom behavior was phenomenal; he made the other attorneys (three of them!) look like hacks.”

“My initial confidence in [him] was more than repaid. He is a gifted attorney; even the jurors were asking for his business card! But more than that he is a caring and compassionate individual, qualities so vital and so gratefully appreciated when one is involved with the traumatic nature of a trial.”

“From the very first day that we met you almost four years ago, you made a very difficult time much easier. My children and I will always be grateful for your diligence and compassion.”

“Thank you for winning my case. You did a great job. I found the entire process very interesting and educational, [but] I hope I never have to go to court again.”

“This is not about malpractice insurance or about physicians leaving the state. In fact, it is about hospitals/doctors becoming more accountable, insurance companies creating equities and quality assurance being in place, to protect people as BEST as the system can. No one and nothing is perfect. What I have learned from you, I can help teach others. I choose to believe, we will, we are and always will be friends.”

“Everything turned out fine. Thanks a million. You’re a friend and also considered family.”

“His handling of the case was extraordinarily impressive. He was thorough in his research and preparation far beyond what one might expect; he became a veritable expert on injuries of the ankle and their treatment. His ability throughout the trial to recall and refer to [the] literature was devastating to the defendant’s attorney.”
