    I had the pleasure of working with Jim Crouse on a case that resulted from a helicopter crash that occurred outside Roswell, New Mexico. I specifically sought out and retained Jim Crouse because of his experience and expertise in aviation cases, and his prior experience in helicopter crash cases. He came highly recommended from various sources. I was not disappointed. Jim is an outstanding attorney and a great co-counsel. He is easy to work with, and always carries his share of the load. He provided superior advice, knowledge and counsel in all areas that were needed, and provided invaluable guidance that allowed us to successfully resolve the case. Jim is a great person.
