Atty. Jim Miron is a rock star
Woe be the party sitting opposite to Atty. Miron in any legal dispute ! If you ever find yourself on the opposite side - bow your head - and walk away. This is because - Atty. Miron is a true lawyer and practices "Nemo auditur propriam turpitudinem allegans" - he will not take a frivolous case just for the sake of doing so. On a personal level - we have gotten to know Jim over the last three years and we consider him part of our family - also he is an amazing chess player - i have yet to win a game against him. I think if you are in the correct and someone has harmed you and you need the best attorney possible - please get Atty. Miron. Even if he may not be the right person (in terms of his field of practice - he will direct you to the right person).

Friendly and helpful
Our daughter was injured in an accident while we were traveling out of state with our RV in Connecticut. A friend that we made there recommended Jim to us, and we have been more than pleased with every aspect of his handling of this difficult process. We contacted Jim not long after the 2020 pandemic started, and he was helpful, informative, and patient as well as being very prepared to handle our communications remotely. He even assisted in the technical aspects of uploading the multitude of paperwork that we needed to send to his office. Jim was able to confidently guide is through every step of this process and ultimately negotiated a settlement with a major insurance company that will help inure that our daughter is taken care of in the future.

Professional, knowledgeable and understanding
Having never experienced a personal injury case, I was extremely unsure of the process and what to expect. From my very first meeting with Jim, he proved to be friendly, knowledgeable, professional and understanding. He laid any of my anxiety to rest by thoroughly explaining all the necessary steps that I needed to take and by keeping a solid line of communication open throughout the entire process. He and his staff never made me feel as though I was just another case within their firm. They all responded in a timely manner to any of my phone calls and/or emails. Jim was fair and reasonable while fighting for my best interest, which led me to be extremely happy with the outcome of my case. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone going forward.

Excellent personal injury attorney
I am an attorney, but do not practice in the area of Personal Injury. I was personally injured in a car crash and asked a respected fellow attorney for a recommendation. He indicated that he thought Attorney Jim Miron was one of the finest PI attorneys. I concur. Attorney Miron exhibits the best qualities of those who practice law. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He uses his expertise to zealously represent his clients, for whom he seeks to maximize benefits and minimize burdens. It is always clear that the clients are his priority. He is honest and direct with clients and presents how the law applies to their specific matters, so that they have an understanding of the case and realistic expectations. He practices with dignity and integrity, which inspires his clients to trust him. Attorney Miron uses his expertise to strategically plan a course of action. Whether he is addressing insurance companies, health agencies or adversarial parties in the case, he does an excellent job negotiating the path to the best outcome for his clients. Attorney Jim Miron is a superb attorney whom I would recommend to other attorneys and to members of the public. Linda

Jim goes above and beyond
I contacted Jim Miron to help me with a workman’s compensation issue that I was denied to collect. Jim was more than eager to help me. He went above and beyond his scope of work to help me in anyway possible to make my experience easy and painless. Needless to say, because of his perseverance and determination, we won the case. I would not of been able to do this on my own and I am so thankful for his guidance and patience with me. If ever I need any legal assistance or representation again, I will most definitely contact Jim again. He definitely deserves 5 stars from me without a doubt.
