About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

HAND-CRAFTED LAW IS HERE.

For over 25 years, James S. Iagmin (YAHG-min) has represented only plaintiffs in catastrophic personal injury, employment, and real estate fraud cases. A tough advocate, he gets incredible results for his clients. Jim also brings integrity and humanity to the process. He helps clients cope with personal tragedy and sometimes stressful litigation. Jim believes that every client deserves honest and aggressive counsel from an experienced and skilled trial attorney.

  

Jim began at The Veen Firm, one of the most respected plaintiffs' law firms in San Francisco and all of California. Returning home to San Diego in 2000, he joined the preeminent law firm of Schoville & Arnell, LLP. There, he learned all aspects of complex injury cases, including premises liability, employment, government liability, wrongful death and product liability cases. He helped work-up an automobile product liability case that resulted in a record $369,000,000 jury verdict.

 

In 2008, Jim joined the Gomez Law Firm, obtaining several jury verdicts in excess of $1 million—each in a unique area of the law, including the first application of the elder abuse laws to an arm's-length real estate transaction. Due to his repeated success, the firm was re-named Gomez Iagmin Trial Attorneys in 2013.

 

 

In 2014, Jim partnered with his friend and colleague Jon Williams to form Williams Iagmin LLP.  Rather than delegating cases to junior attorneys, Jim and John personally handle all of their clients’ cases.

Active Duty Motorcycle Accident
Riding on the back of a motorcycle, a car pulled out from a stop sign and hit us. We found Jim Iagmin through another motorcycle rider. Jim and his team were great to work with. They helped me get to excellent doctors who were able to explain my injuries and what kind of care I would need in the future. The insurance company low-balled us at first. We filed a lawsuit and several months later, the insurance company offered me the policy limits. I’d strongly recommend Jim and his team.

I was hurt while a passenger in a friend’s car. A friend referred me to Jim Iagmin. It was the best call I ever made. From our first phone call Jim put me at ease. He explained what would be involved with my case. Jim and his team helped me through claims against the at-fault driver, the vehicle owner, and my friend’s. Under insured motorist insurance. They made the process quick and easy. I was more than pleased with our results. Jim and his team were excellent communicators thru phone calls and e-mails. They gave me regular updates and checked on how I was doing with my injuries. They were so kind and reassuring. I highly recommend Jim Iagmin and his team to anyone hurt in a crash.

Mr. Iagmin is a wonderful, skillful personal injury attorney, I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Sincerely, Dr. Barbara Young

Great Team !
Jim Iagmin and his team were fantastic to work with. I was hurt when we were hit by a driver who pulled in front of us. Jim and his team helped us obtain the insurance policy limits from the at-fault driver and a notable settlement for us through under-insured motorist insurance. Jim and his team were caring, responsive, and very helpful through the process. I highly recommend Jim!

Highly recommended!
Jim Iagmin and his team were great to work with. I was hit by a drunk driver and unsure what to do next. Jim helped us obtain the insurance policy limits from the drunk driver and from my under-insured motorist insurance. Jim convinced the hospital to waive its reimbursement claim, which was a real benefit to me. They were dedicated and responsive and really helpful through the process. I strongly recommend Jim and his team!

Amazing Team!
Jim Iagmin and his team were great. I suffered a back injury from being rear-ended. I didn’t know what to do. Jim understood what I was going through and helped me find a great doctor. At first, the insurance company didn’t want to treat me fairly and we filed a lawsuit. Jim and his team kept in touch, prepared me, and made the process easy to understand. Soon after we filed the lawsuit, the insurance company paid the policy limits. I strongly recommend Jim and his firm to anyone hurt in a car accident.

Highly recommended, great attorneys
Jim Iagmin and his team were great! I suffered a very serious abdominal injury in a car crash. I hired Mr. Iagmin and his team after my previous attorneys did not work out (they were very impersonal and high volume). Mr. Iagmin and his team expertly prepared our case for trial and, as a result, I received an excellent settlement. Mr. Iagmin and team are highly professional, intelligent, and compassionate. They went out of their way to find a medical specialist to help me with my ongoing accident-related health issues. I highly recommend Mr. Iagmin and his firm.

Fantastic Attorney
I suffered serious injuries when I was hit by a distracted driver, who ran off the road. Unsure of what to do, I called a friend who’s an attorney to see if he had any advice. He recommended working with Jim Iagmin, and told me that if his wife were in a similar situation, that is who he would hire. I am so glad I took his advice! Jim Iagmin literally did all the work, and I received an excellent settlement. I highly recommend Mr. Iagmin and his firm. Not only is he a top shelf attorney, he is easy to work and a really great guy.

Mr. Iagmin guided us through hard fought litigation and we received an excellent settlement. His team was extremely friendly and I felt comfortable the entire time through the process. I highly recommend Mr. Iagmin and his firm.

A Very Compassionate Lawyer...
Jim Iagmin and his team were great! I suffered a back injury following a car crash on the freeway. Mr. Iagmin and Ms. Bouslaugh made a claim and, when one of the insurance companies would not pay, they filed a lawsuit. They took their time and care every step of the way and took all of the stress I anticipated out of the lawsuit. They treated me like family throughout the process and we received a great settlement. I highly recommend Mr. Iagmin and his team to anyone with a serious injury case.

Phenomenal attorney!!!
I had a complex case that could have taken several years to resolve. James was able to resolve the case in less than a year and recovered the maximum possible settlement. He is extremely professional and so intelligent that he is always several steps ahead of opposing counsel. He is not only an impressive attorney but also a fantastic human being. Highly recommended!!

You won't find a better attorney to be your champion
I was lucky enough to be referred to Mr. Iagmin after I suffered injuries in an auto accident. He and his team are thorough, professional, patient, organized, dedicated, supportive, informative, and all around outstanding! I never felt like I was just another client or a burden, and Mr. Iagmin tailored his approach to my needs, as well as my personality. That's a gift you just don't see often anymore. I couldn't be more pleased with his handling of my case and the settlement he orchestrated for me. I will be forever grateful!

Best personal injury lawyer in California!
Mr. Iagmin and his team did an outstanding job! I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury when my car was struck from behind by a large truck. Mr. Iagmin was very familiar with my type of injury and understood how it affected my family and me. He made sure I received the proper care and medical assistance throughout all my struggles. Mr. Iagmin and his team worked tirelessly to get us a great settlement! Even after the settlement was complete, Mr. Iagmin continued to check-in with my family and me to ensure we were doing okay. He treated us as if we were his family!

Treated Me Like Family
" Words can't explain how happy I am, once again thank you for everything you did for me. You're absolutely the best lawyer anyone could ever want and need, I'll never be able to thank you enough. Hope I can see you one more time and shake your hand and thank you in person." I sent that to Mr. Lagmin a couple of days after we find out the case was ready to be settled. Every single word of that is true, I couldn't ask for a better experience treated me like I was family as he told me from the very beginning. Always was in contact with me even when it was a waiting game he would call and just see how things where going and how I was. Absolutely going to miss talking to him but he re assured me that he will always be there if I needed anything what so ever. I would highly recommend him to anyone he will treat you like family. Thank you again Mr. Lagmin for everything.
