I originally was referred to Shipman and Goodwin by another attorney. After interviewing with Jim and Bill, I was convinced this was the legal team I wanted to take over my automobile accident lawsuit. Throughout the entire duration of my case, the attention, professionalism and care that Jim displayed with his associates, lacked in absolutely nothing short of perfection. My case was wrought with problems and issues; Shipman and Goodwin was the 4th firm I had hired, and needless to say I was very apprehensive by the time I retained their services. Jim handled very sensitive and personal information with attentive, courteous and polite methods, making me feel protected and safe, while guiding and prepping me through the legal proceedings before my trial. At no time during the period of 2 years did I ever doubt his abilities or experience in the process. I knew that if I was to get through my case with a positive outcome, that there was no better firm or set of attorneys out there to complete the job. I was impressed with both Jim and Bill's varying skills, complimenting each other within different realms of my case, with the end result of tying up any loose or unfinished details, making for a completely thorough case to be presented for a jury trial. When jury time came, they were completely ready to present the facts. I highly recommend Jim and Bill at Shipman and Goodwin, it made a truly unpleasant process comfortable and less stressful. I refer them to anyone I know needing legal assistance. I am deeply grateful for their professional guidance and care with my case.

The embodiment of charisma, unbelievable intelligence, utter command of vast portions of the legal encyclopedia, complete attention to legal minutiae while maintaining a clear view of the entire legal battlefield, gifted with the very rare ability to both precisely see and keenly sense the best path to restoration of justice and my exoneration, combined with both sheer charm and pure kindness. In my darkest hours he gave me hope, then he made good on his promise. A gentleman. A true gentleman.
