I have represented clients in personal injury and wrongful death cases for more than 25 years. The cases have included motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, medical malpractice and products liability cases. The goal of my firm is to represent our clients with strength, kindness and sensitivity. We make every effort to keep our clients informed as to the status of their case.
We have prepared a series of videos for your information. Simply place your cursor on the video for the title of the videos, which include:

These videos are meant to provide information, not legal advice. Please call our office for more information.

I endorse this lawyer's work. He is a fine, ethical lawyer who cares deeply for each of his clients. Unlike some personal injury lawyers who take in files and then pass them off to less experienced associates, Jim is attentive to all of his clients' files to be certain that they achieve the benefit of his 30 years of practice experience.
