I was involved in a car accident and was badly injured. I called James Roswold because I had consulted with him regarding another case and he was really helpful. He came in fast and began working with the insurance carrier right away. He told me how important getting medical treatment was. He would keep in contact with me always asking me how my treatment was going. Once I completed treatment, he immediately began working on getting my claim submitted to the insurance company. He always kept me closely updated regarding negotiations. I had actually told him at one point that I was willing to settle and he said that he felt confident that he could get more money on the table. He felt he could get a better result for me. He said that he wanted to go back and try to push the carrier higher. He was right. I was extremely happy with my results. James was aggressive. He is an honest, hardworking, attorney. I have referred several people to him since then, including members of my own family. He works very hard for his clients & goes the extra mile for them. I highly recommend him!

Amazing work! I know James Roswold worked day and night on my case. I couldn't be happier. When I got on this website I was shocked to see his ratings, for I might have pasted up the opportunity to work with James. He annotated the reason that he had a bad rating on this website. Very understandable. Couldn't be happier with my results. Thank you James. I wish you the best.

I worked for Mr. Roswald briefly before starting law school and learned a great amount from him about Personal Injury law. He has an immense array of experience and his office takes care of their clients with a great amount of professionalism and respect. He is also very involved in the community.
