    I have known Jim Summers for over 15 years. During that time I had the opportunity to evaluate his skills as a lawyer. I have found that he has an exceptional knowledge of the law, he is always very well-prepared and he always fights tirelessly for his clients. He always demonstrated the highest degree of legal ability and ethical standards. I highly recommend Mr. Summers as an attorney.
