Jerry Maschka has been recognized by Woodward and White for 27 consecutive years and named Lawyer of the Year in 2016 in The Best Lawyers in America. He has more than 40 years of experience representing injured people with a special emphasis on closed head injuries, paralysis, severe orthopedic injuries and wrongful death. He has mediated or arbitrated more than 1,000 matters for other lawyers and served as court appointed special master.

“Financial awards are important,” says Mr. Maschka, but his personal mission and the firm’s commitments go much deeper, “Maschka, Riedy & Ries is more than a firm that excels at the mechanics of legal work. We understand injuries and what happens to peoples’ lives after trauma. Our clients need practical and emotional support, and we try to provide that. We achieve a quality of justice that helps balance the sense of violation they experience, because we want clients to feel better both during and after the process is complete.”
