So glad our organization found Jimmy. One Company that we went up against referred to him as our "hotshot" lawyer! He is on top of everything and he is always honest with us. Don't be afraid to hire him, you will be glad you did.

I highly recommend Mr. Rodgers. The work he did for our local union was exceptional. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable, he was very timely and easy to communicate with. The staff at the firm was always helpful and respectful as well.
