    • I do not recommend James Desmond.

    James Desmond has more of a sit and wait approach, does not have aggressive personality for lawyer work. Open and shut cases are his specialty, not much work involved. Gave me bad advice to go to doctor one time only, my new attorney said that was very bad advice and hurt my case tremendously. And to top it off, refused to give copy of my file to new attorney, which told us he did not do any work on the case. Use extreme caution before you contract with James Desmond.

      Lawyer Comment:

      When this person walked in the door, I should have followed my gut and passed on this case as she was negative about another attorney who I knew the legal community respected. Nevertheless, to give you, the consumer, the proper perspective to this review, if a driver violated the law by failing to have your vehicle insured when this accident occurred, it makes it very difficult for any lawyer to get you the medical treatment you may need as well as defend you against strong arguments that you were at fault in causing the wreck.

    I'm very satisfied with Mr. Diamond's effort at solving my injury problems when it came to my car accident. He is a loyal, trustworthy, and reliable person! He represented me to his full ability and got me what I deserved from that means ol insurance company! Mr. Desmond was always just a call away, and always knew where my case was in its process and was able to answer any question I had for him with very little delay if any at all. Thank you, Jim, from the bottom of my heart! I would highly recommend Desmond Law Office to anyone and everyone!

    • I recommend James Desmond.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. Desmond came highly recommended from a dear friend.
    He was direct and straight to the point and wasted no time in taking care of business. Extremely nice and wonderful to talk to. He made sure you had an understanding of what was taking place.
    I didn’t have to stay in contact with Mr. Desmond because he made sure I was kept up to date with any correspondence or activity happening. My doctor’s office also commented on his professionalism from both he and his staff.
    To say thank you for what he did just doesn't seem enough.

    I would highly recommend Mr. Desmond

    • I recommend James Desmond.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Car Accidents matter.

    I was involved in a car accident in May 2013. Mr. Desmond was referred to me from a previous client he had. I could not be more happy with the service he is providing me. He is very quick to respond to any questions, very knowledgeable. He makes you feel like a friend not just his client. He never rushes you when you don't understand things. He will take the time to answer any questions until you understand them. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Desmond.

    • I recommend James Desmond.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Car Accidents matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I have been a client of Jim's for a few years now. And have never been disappointed at his professionalism and code of ethics. He works fast and thorough in making sure he is on top of his clients cases. Nothing gets past him. Do yourself a favor, call his cell. I can't imagine that you'd ever regret doing so.
