Hire Jim and you won't be disappointed. It is important to carefully follow his advice before and after an event occurs. Much of his time is spent dealing with insurance companies and making sure you receive maximum benefits.
Make sure your insurance coverage is more-than-adequate. With 74% of CA drivers having inadequate insurance, it is vital to make sure your coverage protects you if they cause injury or damage to you and/or your property.

Mr. James Ballidis represented myself in a Uninsured motorist coverage case. Geico insurance (my insurance company) refused to offer an award under my policy even with no issue of liability or comparative negligence. The case went to arbitration where the parties presented the nature of injuries and medical care necessary, and economic damages. Mr. Ballidis' preparation throughout the case was extremely thorough and his presentation and cross examination was damaging to respondents attorneys. The arbitrator even came to me on a side bar and complemented Mr. Ballidis " You are lucky to have such a good attorney representing you". Without going through the details of the entire case, I will close with "you too would be very lucky to have Mr. James Ballidis represent you." James destroyed the Geico's attorney and won the maximum award possible. My thanks to Mr. Ballidis and his firm Allen, Flatts, Ballids, & Leslie.

Approximately two years ago, I had the unfortunate experience of being in a rear-end car accident. The young women, who was texting did not even look up and hit me at around 40 mph. I suffered severe whiplash along with soft tissue damage of the back and shoulder.
After the shock wears off, you are confronted with doctor visits, hospital bills, decisions on where to fix your car and of course talking with your insurance company. It can seem overwhelming at the time and especially if you are in a lot of pain. Fortunately, I had known Jim Ballidis through our mutual business networking group and I knew exactly who to call.
Since this was my first accident, Jim explained the entire process of what I needed to do as well as what Allen, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie would do for me. Jim's firm handled all communications with my insurance company, the car repair agency and towing yard. This allowed me focus on getting my health back so I could return to work.
I highly recommend both Jim Ballidis and his law firm. He has a wonderful team of professionals working together and they kept me informed of every important detail of my case. I was more than pleased with my settlement and I appreciate the hard work Jim and his team provided to me. Although they have many clients, they always made me feel very special and this was a very nice benefit of being Jim's client.
I can highly recommend Jim Ballidis for any personal injury claim you may have. He is an attorney that combines intelligence, ethics, and attention to detail. Thank you!
