My lawyer, Jim Magazine, and his amazing staff of Kim, Brittany, Andrea, Evette and many others made the worst moment (many years) of my life come to an end. They brought me closure. I expected the worse, and very happy with the positive outcome. I Not to mention the ten's of thousands of dollars as compensation for my injuries. I had pre-existing conditions and Jim saw that as an advantage, most lawyers don't
He ending my nightmare with me receiving a more than fair settlement. I have already referred many of my family friends and peers to him and will continue to do so.

I had originally hired another lawyer without doing my research. She had dozens of billboards all over town and I made an incorrect assumption that she knew what she was doing.
After about two years of attempting to settle with the insurance companies, and after over $200,000 in medical costs, it became apparent that we would be going to trial. My original attorney had no trial experience (Had I known that, I never would have hired her in the first place), so she hired Jim Magazine to handle my case.
The difference between the two firms couldn't have been different. Jim and his staff were friendly, approachable, responsive, and most of all, competent.
We ended up going to trial which was interesting to watch. Jim clearly knew what he was doing, and within a few minutes, the defense approached us about a settlement.
I can't say enough about the way that Jim took care of my wife and I. I hope that I never have a need for an attorney again, but if I do, there is only one that I will speak with.
Jim knows his stuff and is clearly respected by the other lawyers that he deals with.
He's also a genuinely good guy. For those of us that don't live in a court room, the importance of having a lawyer you like and respect can't be overstated. He put my family at ease and, ultimately got us a phenomenal settlement.

I was injured in a car accident mr magazine filed suit against my insurance company. My insurance company refused to pay the policy limits. Mr magazine did an incredible job in trial and won a verdict of more than 1,000,000. Mr magazine then proceeded with a bad faith claim against my insurance company with a successful/confidential result. Mr magazine is an incredible trial lawyer who I highly recommend
