5.0 stars 10 totalReview James Acho
Posted by Tom Skladany, Columbus OH
I have hired Jim as an attorney on multiple matters over the past 10 years. He is probably the smartest, most aggressive sports attorney out there right now and trust me I've met many. It is why I was happy to be one of the retired NFL players who nominated him to run the NFL Players Association. He is not just a sports attorney, he is great at employment cases too, not just for former players but any working stiff who gets a bad break. If you need a bulldog with brains Acho is your guy. He is the last lawyer I will ever use.

My father played in the NFL from 1965-1972. Like most players of his era, dad suffered injuries from substandard equipment and inadequate medical care as a player and years later was ignored by the NFL when those injuries affected him later in life. Until I called Jim Acho. The best move I made was to call the man I refer to as "an angel dressed as the devil." He was able to get the NFL to respond when nobody else could. I see now why the retired players nominated him to run the NFL Players Association (the players made a bad mistake in not electing him!). Jim Acho is a bad man and if you are a former player, well, you already know! But if you are a person with ANY type of legal situation, my advice to you would be to call Jim...you won't regret making that call!

Jim recently represented our family on matters relating to an auto accident. He kept us aware of the status of his efforts and fought for us as if he or someone in his family was the injured party. He provided guidance through out, was responsive to our questions and concerns, thoroughly knew the legal and insurance issues and achieved a settlement that exceeded our expectations.

I just settled an employment matter yesterday and I am ecstatic and know of no other way to express my gratitude to Mr. Acho then to post a review on the Internet for people to see. I saw THREE lawyers before I saw Mr. Acho and all three said I had NO CASE. They disregarded me like I was an insignificant nothing. I was already depressed over being wrongfully terminated and now on top of it lawyers are telling me I had no case. I has worked in a specialized field for more than 23 years and I knew finding another job making the same money I had been in the only field I have known since I graduated from college was very doubtful. I became very depressed and in a matter of weeks my entire life was in shambles. My children were worried about me, my husband and I had serious marital problems as a result. For weeks I did internet research for employment lawyers and made what felt like 100 phone calls. The law firms have people "screening" calls. The only lawyer who agreed to meet with me after calling me back directly and not "screening" my call was Mr. Jim Acho. God truly blessed me that day. I actually went on this very website before I met him in person and thought maybe his relatives were leaving the reviews on here they were so flattering. But I found out first hand it's all true. He is AMAZING! He is such a compassionate man and will fight for you. He is very blunt and direct but only so you focus on the minusses and plusses of your case. He always answered my calls. He always took time to listen to me vent. He was part psychologist and part lawyer for me. He even sent my husband and I a dinner for two card out of the blue because he knew we needed a night out together. He always made me laugh when I was down too (have him do his "Scarface" impression for you) and is truly one of the kindest-hearted people I have ever met. My husband and I are going this morning to look at new cars because I have a very nice check on the way. It's not an enormous amount of money, but it is enough to let us buy a new car that we desperately need, take a family trip to Disney (which my kids are on cloud nine about!), pay some outstanding credit card debt and basically move forward with my life. Now I feel like I am vindicated and am worth something! That's worth more to me than the money. My life has literally gone from drab and dreary to one of peace and optimism because of this man. The only way I can pay him back is to say HIRE THIS MAN! God bless you Mr. Acho, my family and I cannot thank you enough, and I'll never forget you! Connie

Jim is a very knowledgable lawyer with not just expert legal skills but very good people skills too. He genuinely cares about wrongs being righted. My case wasn't a high profile case like the majority of cases he handles but he treated my case with the same diligence and tenacity that you would expect with a big "money maker" case. He listened to what I had to say and always returned any phone calls or emails right away. He treated me with great respect. When it comes to finding a good lawyer...Jim Acho is the golden needle in a haystack.

I had been to several Attorney's prior to hiring Jim looking for someone to represent me in my lawsuit for wrongful termination. In my quest to several other Attorney's who did not think I had a case at all, I got very discouraged. Jim was positive from the start and stayed the course all the way until settlement. Jim settled my case for an acceptable amount of money. For anyone looking for an honest hard working Attorney, I would highly recommend Jim Acho.

Attorney Acho is undoubtedly one the best lawyers in the midwest under the age of 40. I have had to utilize the legal services of two other attorneys in the past, both with legal experience of 30+ years each and who supposedly are considered to be the best in their respective areas of practice. Neither one of the two previous lawyers can compare with the legal skill set and ability of Attorney Acho. What strongly impressed me was Mr. Acho's (1) extraordinary diligence, perseverance and passion in advocating on behalf of his client, (2) superior command of the law and awareness of legal issues affecting his client's case, and (3) unique ability to quickly hone in on minute but critical details. I never had to call Attorney Acho to get a status check on my case, because he regularly kept me informed, even with his demanding schedule. I was more than satisfied with his legal services and I am very appreciative and thankful for him.

Jim Acho is an amazing young attorney. He helped me with a contractual problem that was making my life miserable. His kindness and understanding gave me the guidance and help I needed. He handled the situation with ease and inner confidence....not big ego and arrogance. All parties were treated fairly and with respect. I consider myself very fortunate to have him represent me. He has proven to me that all those 'lawyer jokes' are way off base, at least about him.
Jim Acho has my respect and gratitude.

I own an insurance company in Livonia, Mi., and have dealt with Cummings, McClorey, Davis, and Acho, and more particularly James Acho for many years. Jim is a very hard working and trust worthy attorney, and believe me that is hard to find. He answers my questions promptly and always tries to minimize my costs. I would recommend Jim and his firm to anyone.
