I began my career representing large corporations, so I know the lengths they will go to in order to undercut an injured party's claim and to ensure the company's bottom line is protected. I now practice as a trial attorney protecting people injured by the negligence of others, whether by a vehicle accident, aviation disaster, or a disability. My clients' best interests are the important bottom line and that makes being an attorney worthwhile to me.

Very Good Results
Everything worked out even better than I thought it would on my case. I recommend him and his firm.
Posted by Brian | November 3, 2012
Trustworthy and honest representation
Jim always made time to take or return my phone calls and he took the time to reassure me through the long process of my work comp case. I appreciated his honesty. I was successful with my case because of good representation. I would recommend him or use him again.
