    I was in a car crash and hired Jim Nugent to represent me. Best decision I ever made. I highly recommend Jim. It was comforting to know that I had an experienced lawyer fighting for me. Allstate had its lawyers - but I had Nugent Lawyers! Thanks, Kay

    I hired Jim Nugent to represent me after I was bit by a vicious dog. My arm was like hamburger meat from the dog's teeth. I was referred to Jim Nugent by my attorney. My attorney told me he does not have any experience with dog bit cases, and said he knows an attorney who might be able to help me. Jim agreed to represent me. Jim stood by my side throughout the entire case. The dog owners made it so the case had to be tried. I was very impressed with Jim's trial preparation and I was blown-away by his talents in the courtroom. At the end of the trial, Jim stood up and said what the verdict should be. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount, and I was shocked when we were awarded the exact amount of money Jim asked for, to the penny!

    I was hesitate to bring the lawsuit at first. I have two dogs of my own. But the dog that bit me was vicious and the owners did not care what happened to me in the least. Jim found other instances where this same dog bit other people.

    My arm has a scar on it. It reminds me of that dog,but it also reminds me of how fortunate I was to have Jim Nugent represent me in a court of law obtaining the justice I desired.

    I was involved in a very serious car accident. While I was waiting at a red light, a guy smashed into me. The damage to my car was significant but the damage to my body was much worse. I was uncertain as to what was going to happen to me. I was in a lot of pain, medical bills were piling up and I was losing time from work. A friend referred me to Jim Nugent. I met with Jim and, fortunately, he agreed to take my case.

    The one thing that stands out more than any other part of my experience having Jim Nugent represent me was the personal service I received. Never did a phone call go unreturned. Every question I ever had was answered, and each answer was thorough and timely. From Jim to his wife Julie and their assistants, everyone treated me as though I was part of a team, not like I was an outsider.

    Before I hired Jim, I was filled with anxiety, fear and apprehension because I did not know how this process worked. Because of the time Jim spent with me, the fact that he was so available and listened to my concerns, he made the process so much less intimidating.

    I highly recommend Jim Nugent if you are in need of a very aggressive car accident lawyer who provides the best personal service anyone can ever ask for.

  4. Jim is a Warrior in Court yet a kind and gentle person with special "listening" skills.

    I am honored and privileged to write a review for my lawyer Jim Nugent. I was referred to Jim Nugent by my real estate lawyer. I was in a very serious car accident. I was hit head-on by a young man who crossed the double yellow line. I was hurt, injured, hospitalized and my car was totaled. I was receiving medical bills that I did not know how I was going to pay. I was missing work due to my injuries. Before this car accident, I had only dealt with one lawyer in my life and that was when my husband and I bought a house. I called my real estate lawyer who told me he fully trusted Jim Nugent to handle my car accident case. My real estate lawyer told me he specializes in real estate and could not do as good a job as Jim Nugent would do. He told me he has referred many dozens of potential personal injury clients to Jim but that Jim only takes certain cases. He told me to call Jim directly and hope for the best that Jim would take my case. I followed his advice and contacted Jim Nugent.

    I was impressed with the immediate attention I received from Jim. I accepted his offer to get in his car and come to meet me. This was a huge help since I was still having difficulty getting around, and had no car of my own.

    Listening was what Jim did that first visit, and listening is what Jim and Julie Nugent and their assistants did for me every time I called them and met with them. They were extremely responsive to my questions and calmed me down. The Nugent Lawyers took care of all my worries and concerns with the hospital bills, the doctor bills, and my union health plan.

    Most importantly, Jim Nugent went to Court and battled against the insurance company who did not want to be fair. At first, the insurance company only offered the amount of my medical bills. Jim and Julie immediately put my case into suit. They were able to make the young fellow who hit me answer questions under oath and show us his insurance policy. Jim demanded the entire limits of his insurance policy - which was a substantial amount of money. I never thought Jim would be able to get the insurance company to pay all that money - but I'm happy he worked his magic and did just that!

    Jim Nugent is a talented personal injury lawyer who did a fantastic job for me. I highly recommend anyone who has been injured to call Jim. Hopefully he will take your case and get you the justice you deserve. Jim is a true warrior but make no mistake about it - he is a kind, gentle person who truly cares about me and I am sure he cares about all his clients. Julie Nugent is a joy to be around. I spent a number of hours with Julie reviewing my file, understanding all the facts, dates, treatments, and how these injuries have affected my life. She is a lovely person. The two Nugent Lawyers are husband and wife and work together to form the best lawyer team any client could ever dream of having.

    My overall rating for Jim Nugent is the highest I could give. I am so happy my real estate lawyer referred me to Jim and that Jim took my case. I count my lucky stars that I had the Nugent Lawyers fighting for me.

    • I recommend James Nugent.

    I originally started with a different attorney. She was unresponsive and did not answer phone calls. As a result, I lost truth in her. I then was referred to Jim and Julie Nugent. I am so glad I turned to them for their expertise, knowledge and determination in fighting Allstate Insurance Company for me.

    I was surprised at how informed they kept me. Nugent Law brought this case to trial for me and Jim was fabulous at trial. I highly recommend the dynamic lawyer team of Jim and Julie Nugent. Their assistant was very pleasant too.

    If you have been in a car crash, like I was, and want a team of lawyers to fight for you, not back down and allow you to tell your story to a jury, call the Nugents.

    I have had a wonderful experience with the Nugent firm. They were very helpful, knowledgeable and understood what I went through. Jim and Julie helped me navigate through the car accident experience. The insurance company knew what they were doing, I needed expert lawyers to level the playing field for me. Highly recommended Jim and Julie. They're the best!

    • I recommend James Nugent.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Car Accidents matter.

    I WAS FORTUNATE TO FIND AND SELECT ATTORNEY JAMES J. NUGENT AFTER BEING THE VICTIM OF A REAR-END COLLISION THAT TOTALED MY AUTO. ATTORNEY NUGENT AND HIS STAFF WERE TRULY AMAZING IN THEIR DILIGENCE IN THE PROCESS OF CLAIMS AGAINST THE INSURER OF PERSON WHO HIT ME, AS WELL AS MY OWN INSURER FOR CLAIMS OF AN UNDER INSURED PARTY.
    AFTER A LONG 40 MONTH PROCESS THAT WAS MOVING FORWARD TO TRIAL ATTORNEY NUGENT WAS ABLE TO GAIN FULL DAMAGES FROM THE PARTY THAT HIT ME, PLUS AN UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT FROM MY OWN INSURER.
    BOTTOM LINE IS THAT ATTORNEY NUGENT AND HIS STAFF WERE TOTALLY ON TOP OF THIS CASE OVER THE EXTENDED PERIOD, ALWAYS KEEPING ME INFORMED AS TO PROGRESS. THEY OVERCAME SIGNIFICANT HURDLES RELATED TO MY MEDICAL RECORDS. THEIR THOROUGHNESS OF RESEARCH WAS TRULY IMPRESSIVE.
    ATTORNEY NUGENT IS A "DOWN-TO-EARTH" INDIVIDUAL. AND WHEN RESULTS COUNT, HE AND HIS STAFF DELIVERED WELL BEYOND ANYTHING I COULD HAVE EXPECTED.
