I called several lawyers to explain my case in an attempt to get the representation I needed after an injury to my face but got turned down every single time, that was until I contacted James Wood. He immediately decided to take on my case and was extremely prompt in meeting me. He went above and beyond anything I ever expected. He kept in frequent contact with me, sent me updates, filed all necessary paper work quickly, and was very friendly and personable while doing so. He put my mind at ease anytime I got stressed, he helped me see a dentist when I couldn't afford to, and most importantly he never failed to let me know that I mattered.
In the end he got me a settlement that was well over double what I thought I would receive. Him taking me on as a client turned my grim situation into a huge blessing for myself and my family. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer! I am so full of gratitude for him and his hard work!

From the moment you meet James you can tell that he's a sincere person. I heard about him through a friend that had nothing but positive things to say about his work. Upon meeting James, I discussed my case with him and he was immediately willing to help. After opening the case, James was informative and kept me updated on any changes. James asks you what you want to do with the case. He allows you to make the decisions and works with you the entire way. You are never kept in the dark with James and he treats you like a person and not like a client. I would recommend James to anyone in the future.

I was involved in a crash with injury off duty. Mr. Wood was able to help me through the process of dealing with a less than helpful insurance company. I have since referred several friends to him and all have had the same outstanding results!
