I met Jim almost 4 years ago when I was in a car accident with my mom and grandma. At the time I was a minor so all decisions were made by my mom. When I turned 18 gym, make sure that I knew everything that was going on he went step by step in the process with me. He is compassionate, and very thorough and explaining everything to me considering this was the first time I ever had a lawsuit.

I met Jim Myron 4 years ago when my daughter's car got hit I was the passenger and so was my grandson. Since then he has made sure that I knew what was going on every step of the way in this lawsuit he took his time to explain everything and make sure that I knew what was going on. Due to covid the lawsuit was delayed but he still emailed and called to check and see how we were doing. And for his caring nature it is why I recommend him to anyone that needs a lawyer.

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.

One of the things I have learned over the years is to talk a little less and listen a lot more. As a person and an attorney I strive to not only give my legal advice but to ensure that my clients are heard and that I understand their concerns and that we work together to achieve a result in their best interest. It was an honor doing that with you, Madeline. Thank you for your thoughtful 5-star review!

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).
