About me

In 1989, I left a partnership in a medium-size firm to establish this firm, where one attorney is responsible for a matter from start to finish.  Clients receive personal attention from me and my assistant.  Having worked at a medium-size firm, I believe this provides superior service.  This law firm utilizes up-to-date technologies in the service of our clients. 

Lawyers who prepare with the expectation that the case will settle put their clients at a disadvantage.  Complete preparation assures the best presentation of the evidence at trial and increases the likelihood that the opposition will agree to a favorable settlement to avoid trial.  

It has become the standard of our practice to work hard and always be prepared.

  • Salvatore Bonanno

    I endorse Atty Wing. I've worked with Jim on several occasions. He's an excellent lawyer, who clearly puts the client first. Though I endorse Jim in "Education", if the Avvo drop-down menu allowed, I'd equally endorse him in areas involving Family Law, and Juvenile Matters. I found that the best measure of Jim's ability is when a client that I referred to him calls me to thank me for directing them to Atty. Wing.
