Strongly recomment
I was a client of Jim Guziak; specifically he represented me in a case against a municipal agency. Jim was excellent. He kept me informed throughout the case and in the end it was settled in my favor. He is tenacious and intelligent. He reviewed the case thoroughly and provided accurate reviews of the status and possible outcomes. He was also empathetic to my feelings about the case. He is well versed on issues related to government entities and I would strongly recommend him.
