I had the honor of working against Mr. Jimerson in a very contentious dispute involving the collection of a judgment. Although our respective clients disagreed vehemently regarding the underlying liabilities, there could be no disagreement regarding how competently and zealously Mr. Jimerson advocated for his client. In the end, we were able to construct an "outside-the-box" settlement that was acceptable to both parties, saving both sides tens-of-thousands of dollars in litigation expenses. I believe that without the professionalism demonstrated by Charles Jimerson such a result would not have been possible.

I endorse this lawyer. As a Florida construction lawyer he has been very helpful to my practice as a construction lawyer in Georgia. We have worked together, he has always promptly answered by Florida law questions, and I have confidently referred him to several of my clients.
