– Aviation Client
“Jamie Lebovitz and his team did a fantastic job in our lawsuit resulting from accident injuries. We received an amount beyond our expectations that will cover our health needs for the rest of our lives. It was also a pleasure to work with Jamie, Tamara, and the others. They are nice, caring people.”

“It’s so unbelievable that 10 years have passed since the crash. It was comforting to come together at the memorial to see how far we (the families of the victims) have come in our journey from such loss and grief. Kindness, compassion, patience, listening, and understanding—these are the things that have helped us all live with the tragedy.
“The way that you and your team cared for and embraced us, the manner in which you helped us all find some justice and accountability, has made such a difference. As we look back on all we’ve been through, (I mean the families), we feel so fortunate that you were our champion and the one who made such a difference.”
“Good to hear that Jamie is ready to fight for more victims of airline disasters. He is phenomenal and so is his team.”
“Again, I find myself amazed by the unique and wonderful way you manage things. As I have told you many times, your legal ability is second to none—tenacity, intelligence, insight, strategy, you name it—you had this case dialed. When you add the compassion you have to the package, there is no one I would rather have handle a legal case for me or my loved ones.”
“There are two ends to any spectrum. Within the civil and legal realm, there are those who have been wronged and those who are victims. We have no ability within ourselves for practical, lawful recourse. You and your law firm know about the importance of this concept and obviously practice it. My family feels so blessed and fortunate to have had your firm represent us. You had been a part of this from the beginning. We appreciate your efforts more than you can know.”

“Jamie is absolutely, without a doubt, one of the most compassionate and understanding individuals I have ever dealt with. His calming mannerisms, along with his ‘hard-as-nails, don’t mess with me’ attitude, are incredible. The phrase, a pleasure, does not seem appropriate given the circumstances, but it was a pleasure, and I would never have been able to get through everything without him.”
“Jamie is well known for representing aviation cases involving commercial carriers. However, Jamie also is very knowledgeable in defending individuals involved in general aviation accidents. Jamie is above all a caring individual genuinely concerned about myself and family.”
“When one has lost a loved one (son) in an airline crash, the toll on many levels is devastating. Then one is again traumatized by the airline executives and their attorneys. We often felt victimized by the opposing attorneys. Jamie Lebovitz and his support staff helped me, my family, and friends through this terrible experience. His experience, professionalism and ability to communicate what was happening in the process and to understand what we, the family, where feeling was exceptional.”
“Mr. Lebovitz was extremely competent, compassionate and well versed on our case. He took us through the arbitration process painlessly and with an excellent result. I would definitely recommend him to anyone requiring an outstanding personal injury attorney.”
“Jamie is an outstanding attorney. He always had OUR best interest when making decisions and providing counsel. He took a lot of his personal time to truly get to know my family, allowing him to get a sense of who he was defending in our case. He continues to check in with us (and other clients) even though our case has long been settled. He is the best of the best in aviation litigation, and I would highly recommend him (which I have). I would use Jamie and NPHM again if necessary.”
