Howard B. Ackerman has been representing accident victims and injured workers since 1987, and has successfully resolved well over a thousand personal injury and workers' compensation claims in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. His professional achievements have earned him the highest rating from his peers in Martindale-Hubbell.
Mr. Ackerman understands the tactics often used by insurance companies to deny or diminish legitimate injury claims, and how to combat them. He strongly believes that individuals hurt by another person's carelessness or while performing their employment deserve to receive all compensation available under the law, and he pursues this belief through his thorough and caring representation of each client. Mr. Ackerman devotes his personal attention to each case accepted by him. Clients are kept well-informed about the status of their case, and what is needed to achieve the best possible result.
Mr. Ackerman understands that clients want to communicate directly with their lawyer, and he is committed to making sure that each client receives as much attention as is needed to allow the client to have a clear understanding of the status of, and progress on, their case.
Mr. Ackerman is proud to be able to represent injured or disabled clients without regard to their ability to pay a lawyer. Mr. Ackerman can do this because the client only pays a fee when a monetary recovery is obtained. In this manner, an injured person can receive quality legal representation against a deep-pocket insurance company or employer without incurring legal fees until a recovery is obtained.
Mr. Ackerman is happy to speak or meet with potential clients without charge or any obligation to retain Ackerman Law Firm, P.C.
