Fantastic through and through
James and the team around him—Brandi and Phyllis et al—will see that you reach justice in dealing with insurance companies. We were rear-ended on an I-10 overpass and the other driver essentially fled the scene. Mr. Flinn and his colleagues saw that this stressful and uncertain situation was properly and thoroughly resolved and left us with utmost confidence in their handling of the case. Keep in mind that these cases don't resolve themselves immediately. If you are willing to be patient, know that James and his colleagues at the Voorhies firm will fight for you each step of the way. At the end of the saga that began with being collided into on the interstate, we are sincerely relieved and thankful that James was there to work with us. He and those around him bring a rare sense of care and compassion for the client balanced with a sense of fierce determination in getting a fair settlement from the insurance companies. Thank you James, Brandi, Phyllis, et al for your hard and surefooted work.

Excellent settlement for my auto accident
James handled my car accident case this past year against two different insurance companies. He is the best. Hands down the most responsive, and easy to work with attorney. He answered my calls right away, and really took the time to explain things to me throughout the case so I felt comfortable with our strategy and everything that was happening. He was able to settle my case just this past month for more than ten times what I was originally offered by the first insurance company. I would recommend him to anyone that wants a hard-working and trustworthy attorney for their auto accident claim.

Smart lawyer took care of my accident case.
James is an intelligent lawyer and looks out for his clients above all else. I hired James after I was hit by a car in a parking lot. The other driver back up quickly without looking and knocked me to the ground. James was able to get all of my medical expenses paid for by the other driver's insurance company and I received a pain and suffering settlement as well that I was most pleased with. James made the whole process go smoothly, and always kept me informed. I hope I never have to deal with a car accident again, but if I do, I will surely give James a call.

So glad I found James after I got in a car accident.
I was in a car accident about a year ago in New Orleans. My car actually rolled over and I was hurt pretty bad. The other driver involved in the accident was at fault, but the adjuster from their insurance company kept trying to find ways to blame me, and gave me such a hard time about paying for my medical bills, so I started looking for a lawyer. I am so glad that I found James. He took over, got the insurance company to back off, and was able to get me a great settlement that I was very happy with. James kept me updated throughout the process and did a really wonderful job of explaining all the different aspects of my case to me. It was easy to see that he genuinely takes a personal interest in his clients and wants to get them the best result possible. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that has been in an auto accident and needs a lawyer.

I Highly Recommend James Flinn!
My roommate and I hired James Flinn to resolve a dispute with our landlord. He was knowledgeable and forthright. James listened to our concerns and provided us with our options. Once we chose a course of action, he immediately went to work. He dealt with our problem thoroughly and promptly. He kept us in the loop and the outcome was better than we could have hoped! I cannot thank James enough for all his hard work. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone.

Landlord shakedown
When my landlord unjustifiably refused to return my security deposit, I asked James to help. James understood that it wasn't necessarily the amount of money at issue, but the principle of the matter. Within a week of getting James involved, my landlord acquiesced and rightfully returned my deposit. Thank you James!
