I suffered a work related injury which required surgery. My claim was denied by my employers insurance company. Frustrated & confused about the process to contest their ungrounded decision, I decided to research my options.
I chose Mr. James Pitts because of his phenomenal reputation, great deal of integrity and that many people respect him. I am so grateful for all that you have done for me. Thank you so much for your dedication, advice and hard work! I appreciate all your insight & guidance but most importantly your great judgment and follow through.
His paralegal, Amy, is not only extremely thorough and detail oriented but has excellent communication skills. Thank you for listening, researching and the many emails we exchanged. It was greatly appreciated.
I was able to receive the medical treatment I needed and could dedicate my focus on healing my injury.
I absolutely recommend him to guide you through this complex process!

After having shoulder issues since a 2005 w.c. claim, I thought reopening this claim was a long shot at best. I consulted Mr. Pitts in 2015, and in a very timely manner he was able to close this claim with amazing results. My medical costs for a full shoulder replacement were covered Plus!!! I'm very grateful to Mr. Pitts for his dedication to my case.

I was injured in an automobile accident in 2014. I hired Attorney Pitts and he did a great job with my case. I couldn't be happier. He and his staff were very detail oriented and settled my case for a fair amount after the insurance company tried to insult me with their low offer. A++ Attorney!
