Lawyer Profile

Rick Jaklitsch is a nationally acclaimed Personal Injury Trial Attorney. The BIG DOG himself has seemingly won every possible legal award that relies on the vote of judges who have seen Rick in action, or lawyers who have opposed Rick in court. Rick was one of the youngest attorneys in the country when he was first honored by Martindale-Hubbell with their coveted “AV Preeminent” rating of Personal Injury Trial Lawyers.   That honor put Rick in the top 1% of lawyers nationwide, and he has won that prestigious recognition every year for the past 22 years. Martindale-Hubbell calls this AV rating “the pinnacle of professional excellence earned through a strenuous peer review rating process. It is the highest possible peer review rating in both legal ability and ethical standards”.
