Efficient and Flexible
Jim was great! He helped me with my dog bite case. I’m a mail carrier and I have a crazy schedule with long hours. He still made sure we could get together to discuss what was going on. He worked around my schedule which was super helpful so I didn’t have to take any time off of work! He went above and beyond to get me what he felt I deserved!
