Biography

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.

If you have been injured in an accident, or are pursuing a claim for social security disability benefits, you have nothing to lose, and potentially much to gain, by contacting Mr. Ackerman today to discuss your case. Home and hospital visits are available for the seriously injured who are unable to come into the office of Ackerman Law Firm, P.C.

      Mr. A handled WC so I could focus on healing! He fought WC each time they denied a treatment with my DR. In the time that we worked together he never pressured me to settle. He was just a call or email away. It later became the right time for me to settle, and he was able to get them to almost 2Xs their initial offer. I have already thanked him, but I wanted to take the time to write this review. Because of him I can finally move on with my life that I feel was put on pause for the last 5 years.

      Mr. Ackerman was absolutely amazing as an attorney! Sometimes when you find yourself in a situation where legal representation is the only option, the hassle of dealing with the lawyer can be just as troublesome as the dispute/dilemma itself. With Mr. Ackerman, however, this was never a concern. Extremely personable and down to earth, I highly recommend him.

      I was rear-ended while I was stopped at a red light back in fall of 2012. My chiropractor recommended Mr. Ackerman and I had only positive experience working with him on my case. Mr. Ackerman did a great job dealing with the insurance company while I focused on my treatment. He was always professional, personable, and responsive. He regularly followed up on how my treatment was going and gave me timely updates on the case. Do yourself a favor and bring your case to him!
