    I have known Jim for many years and have seen him in hearings in Southern Colorado. He is a very knowledgeable attorney that cares deeply for his clients and their concerns. I recommend him for both personal injury and workers compensation.

  • Derek Todd Frickey

    I have been on the opposite side of many cases with James Anderson. He knows the law and is a more than worthy opponent. He fights very hard on behalf of his clients and obtains favorable results on their behalf.
