    James Sorrels Review

    Laying face down on the pavement, after being hit by a car in a crosswalk in downtown Seattle, sadly I find my one of my first thoughts is...how will I deal with hospital bills and insurance companies? I find myself in the ER wanting to argue with the doctors for each procedure, fearing the imminent bill racking up with each passing moment. A night passes and I find many missed calls and emails from insurance adjusters trying to coerce statements from me. I honestly was at wits end until a friend referred me to Jim. He and Bridget met with me and helped me to understand the insurance process when you are a pedestrian hit by a vehicle. From the moment I signed to work with them, the adjusters stopped harassing me. They ensured all those dreaded hospital bills were covered and held the right parties accountable. They were able to migrate around the extremely complex situation of multiple car and health insurance companies. They fought for my continued care to strive towards a full recovery. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the integrity, work ethic and truly caring spirit of this firm.

    If you find yourself hurt and don't know where to turn give them a call right away, you will not regret it.

    Most helpful attorney! Great outcome!

    I hired Jim after he was recommended by an experienced defense attorney. I figured what could be a better recommendation! It turned out to be an excellent recommendation. I had a good case but there were some real holes that threatened the outcome that I felt I deserved. I saw that Jim was concerned about this as well but he came up with a way of presenting it so that it actually strengthened my case. He also counseled me wisely about what points to emphasize and which to avoid. I wasn’t convinced at the time but as the process unfolded I saw that his judgement was excellent. Another great thing about Jim Sorrels is his tolerance for the feelings that surface as a hearing approaches. I was very anxious which did not make things easier. Jim did not take it on but stayed calm and tried to reassure me. He met with me before the hearing and went over my case. He had obviously put a lot of thought into the presentation. He had a large timeline display to make my case more understandable to the arbitrator (and to me). He video recorded our meeting so I could watch it at home. At the hearing he was totally “on his feet” and dealt with some challenges from the opposing attorney with insight and humor that drove his points home. His closing summary put it all together, he was totally prepared. The arbitrator’s decision was completely in my favor and the award exceeded my expectation. As for Jim’s staff, they were terrific all the way through. They ended up handling issues that I didn’t realize would become theirs to handle and they kept information organized and everything straight with the insurance company. They were such a good resource for me and they were very much appreciated as a process like this can get pretty overwhelming. Anyone with a personal injury case is in excellent hands with Jim and his staff. They will do everything possible to help get the best possible outcome. As an added benefit, they were considerate and receptive; I never hesitated to call with any question.

    Great to work with!

    We were very impressed with how personally and genuinely we were treated at all times. We found Jim very detail oriented and well versed in his work, and his staff were very friendly and responsive to any issues we had. We had what seemed like an especially drawn out case, and coupled with that we moved back to Canada midway through the settlement proceedings, but the transparency Jim and his office provided on all aspects of the proceedings gave us complete confidence that everything was in good hands and we got a very fair settlement.

    Exceeded our Expectations!

    We switched to Mr. Sorrels when we had problems with our original attorney. Jim, and his staff, took our case from a very poor position to one where we feel we were treated fairly by the insurance companies involved in a relatively short time frame. We were kept informed throughout the process with regular phone calls, emails, and visits to his office to review our case. Jim's law knowledge was clearly evident to us, and he took time to explain to us every step. My wife and I could not be happier with our results from Jim, Bridgett, and the entire staff!

    Jim was the perfect lawyer for me. He was incredibly thorough ,carefully and thoughtfully considering everything related to my case. He took the time to get to know me and kept me informed of developments and what my options were at each step.
    He was respectful of the the other side and made sure that I was well prepared for the challenges along the way. His staff is fabulous also, cannot say enough good things about their attention to detail and their professionalism.
