My surgery was botched by the physician, nearly ending my life, and the hospital's standard of after-surgery care was deemed inadequate. James H. Wood was hired to represent me in the resulting lawsuit against both parties. In the year spent developing the case, Jim constantly exhibited his vast experience, his superb knowledge of the law and his skill at developing strategy. Throughout this process he made certain that I understood everything and he actively solicited my input on evidence, witnesses and strategy. He wanted me comfortable with it all. Trial was scheduled but the doctor, faced with overwhelming evidence against him, settled the suit satisfactorily. The hospital, with a reputation of never settling, also capitulated with a settlement. Taking everything into consideration, Jim did a masterful job of making the case, while at the same time showing me and everyone involved he was a "gentleman lawyer." Five stars are not enough to score Jim Wood's work.
I would recommend James Wood. He has made sure I understand the legal process during my case and has kept me informed. He has been supportive and available whenever I have needed him which has given me peace of mind. He has been responsive to my needs during my lawsuit and has made me feel that he cares about me as a person not just a client.
James (Jim) Wood is everything you could possibly wish and hope for in a legal representative-he is knowledgeable, experienced, trustworthy, ethical, experienced, supportive...top notch all the way and I know he is the very best choice in my case. Mr. Wood has always been very flexible and supportive, his staff has gone above and beyond to meet my personal and professional needs during this very stressful and trying time in my life. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Wood and his firm to anyone who needs excellent professional legal representation.
