| Hired Attorney
Professional, compassionate and extreamly knowledgeable counsel
I was hit by a distracted driver and sustained life altering injuries. Jim Orr and his firm represented me in my claims. Ultimately, we had to file a lawsuit and were prepared to go to trial. After much effort on the part of Jim and his staff, the case was settled prior to trial and we were awarded both the full insurance coverage from the insurance company of the young woman that hit me (which was $1.25 million) and the full coverage of my under-insured motorist insurance policy (an additional $250,000.). There were numerous complex legal issues and details that Jim and his staff handled with precision and incredible insight. There are a lot of moving parts in the legal process and a single decision can make all the difference in the outcome. I do not think that a ‘run of the mill’ lawyer would have the knowledge and experience to have facilitated the outcome that we had. The long rehabilitation and recovery process have been very challenging for me and my family and I am extremely grateful for the professional, compassionate and knowledgeable counsel that Jim and his firm provided. He is a 'no nonsense' lawyer that is highly respected by his peers. I highly recommend him and his firm without reservation.

Motorcycle accident injury case
Jim and his staff are excellent.They were able deal with many complex issues in my case, and recover from the at fault party, as well as the underinsured motorist portion of my insurance when they didn't want to pay up. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case.
