Personal injury Attorney | Jun 06
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

Personal injury Attorney | Aug 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I highly endorse Jim. Jim had a significant case for a victim in Pennsylvania. After conducting very thorough discovery, he determined that the case needed to be brought in Georgia to achieve the desired results. He retained my firm to carry on the battle in Georgia. Jim had the case well organized, each detail of the case well documented and ready for a lawsuit to be filed. We enjoyed a very successful outcome for the client in large part because of the strong groundwork that had been laid by Jim. I highly recommend Jim to anyone who needs a strong advocate to help resolve a personal injury claim."
