"Mr Plotnick handled a case for me that finally wrapped up last week. It was a car accident that occurred the 4th of April 2019. Stu handled every aspect of the case for me in negotiating with the chiropractor, rehabilitation clinic, defendant carrier, and all other aspects of the case. He was there every step of the way to reassure and provide counsel during what was arguably one of the darker and more challenging periods in my life. I'm glad I reached out in contacting him the day the accident happened because I can imagine things would have gone much differently had I walked the path alone. I'm pleased to report that the case was concluded to my satisfaction and settlement and all is well. My health is fully restored and I'm glad to have the situation behind me now. I'd recommend Stu and his firm to anybody involved in a personal injury case. This guy is tenacious, exceedingly focused and a true advocate for his clients."

Stuart Plotnick is an excellent attorney. My 12 year-old son was injured on a faulty trampoline at a gym. He suffered a severe break in two parts of his leg. It was devastating to him because of the restrictions it placed on his social life and athletic activities for many months.
Stuart met with my son and me and filed a lawsuit on his behalf. He was very patient and understanding with my son and helped him to feel comfortable during his deposition. With Stuart’s dedication and persistence, we prevailed, and my son received an excellent settlement. I’m grateful for Stuart’s hard work and for the wonderful result he achieved.

Stuart represented me in case where I slipped and fell on ice in a parking lot in front of my office resulting in a severe injury to my knee. As soon as Stuart was hired he engaged experts to look at the location and determine the cause of my fall. Stuart's firm and staff took care of all the groundwork, and after we filed a lawsuit against the building owner, the insurance company agreed to a very good settlement for me and my family. He was responsive to my questions and paid attention to the details. I cannot thank him enough for the outcome.

I strongly recommend Stuart to anyone needing a lawyer specializing in slip and fall or personal injury cases. I had a bad fall and broke my knee. From the start, Stuart was always accessible, from our initial meeting to the very successful settlement. He kept pushing the insurance carrier for maximum recovery in my case. His communication skills are excellent; answering phone calls and emails without delay, explaining clearly the parameters of the case, sequence of steps in the litigation process and continually keeping me informed as to the status of the claim. We worked together as a team; He was an active listener, valued my input. I respected his legal expertise and judgment, allowing me with a minimum of hassle and anxiety to heal and get back to my life!
Always Willing To Answer Additional Questions
Posted by Behrouz
I was in an auto accident almost 4 years ago and injured my back and neck, and lost several work projects. The insurance company kept dragging my claim out and offered me less than my medical bills and lost income. Mr. Plotnick filed a lawsuit for me, and the insurance company kept trying to do everything to pay me less than what my claim was worth. After various court fights with their attorney, the insurance company paid me its entire policy, over double the amount it had been offering. I was also able to obtain more money from my own insurance coverage, thanks to Stuart's unwillingness to give in. I would recommend him to anybody in an accident."
Superb Legal Advice At A Fair Cost

I contacted Attorney Plotnick and immediately he was attentive to listening to my needs and quickly assessed my legal situation. From day one, the attorney was generous with his time and expertise. Attorney Plotnick responded quickly to my emails and phone calls and he never made me feel put off or placed below the rest of his workload. I was given superb legal assistance at a fair cost. Even after the attorney finished his work for my case, he was still willing to answer additional questions and offered additional advice! I highly recommend this law firm to anyone who wants to be represented well, and by an attorney who knows what he is doing and only wants success for your case!

Stuart is our business' go-to guy. My wife and I own a firm that does a great deal of business with federal and local governments and universities.

He is aggressive, no-nonsense, but also very reasonable. He talks you through each issue and situation, so you know of all the costs and benefits before you take action. He becomes not only your lawyer, but your friend.

I retained Atty. Stuart Plotnick on a wrongful termination case in 2014. He provided practical and sound advice, and I subsequently used what he did for me in my case (he presented an incisive write-up that served as a comment to an ethics report filed by my employer) in the second round of Appeal. What he wrote served as a mitigating factor that contributed to my victory and reinstatement in 2015.

Was both very timely and knowledgeable. Clearly understood employment law around non-solicit and non-compete agreements. Had a working knowledge on how my situation would likely be perceived and ruled in a court of law within Washington, D.C. Was good at providing solid examples of other similar cases. Overall I felt comfortable with his consultation advice and would recommend him to others. Very good personality and easy to talk to.

Stuart is one of the finest attorneys I have ever known and I am an attorney myself. I first came to Stuart several years ago when he represented me in a workplace matter. He was very knowledgeable and I appreciated his honesty and direct approach analyzing my chances of success and the difficulties we would encounter in litigating my case. For the last few years I have been a lawyer in my own practice. I reach out to him from time-to-time when I need assistance. He is extremely responsive and has an excellent breadth of knowledge when it comes to litigation. Most recently, he was able to answer all of my questions and direct me on the best way to proceed in litigation in order to assist my client. As a result, we were completely successful and able to reach a settlement of our case quickly without a great deal of expense. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I called Mr. Plotnick regarding a health insurance issue. Our insurance carrier was unresponsive and denied claims for over a year and a half. Mr. Plotnick responded to my call immediately. He recommended a simple action for me to take before we proceeded with any further legal review or expense. He did not charge for this initial call. Within 24 hours, we received a favorable decision from this insurance company. I cannot thank Mr. Plotnick enough. I highly recommend him.

Car accident representation and referral to another lawyer

Stuart was recommended by a friend. On the last day possible to take action regarding another driver's negligence, Stuart listened to my case, and filed suit before it was too late. From that point on, he was honest, respectful, communicated often and well. He went to bat for me in helping to recover medical expenses. He gave me sound advice that proved valuable in successfully reaching an out of court settlement. I wouldn't have recovered any monies if it weren't for Stuart's efforts. Stuart also referred me to another highly-qualified lawyer after a 2nd car accident to avoid a conflict of interest being he was still representing me in the 1st case.

Mr. Plotnick represented me in an employment case against my current employer where I had not been promoted due to sex discrimination. I had had no success for almost a year of trying to resolve the case on my own. Within 60 days, I had received a promotion and back pay, and medical bills paid due to the stress of the situation. It was a great result.
