Your first attorney conversation should be with James C. Suits II
I was in a vehicle accident where the defendant drove his vehicle into the back of mine. The attorneys I contacted wouldn’t represent me because my vehicle wasn’t’ crushed in the accident and I wasn’t’ in a body cast. No attorney would take my case. Except for James C. Suits II. James took on my case, represented me and in a partnership like fashion and stayed on with me for three years, till we satisfactorily resolved our case. I say “we” because James always presented me the outcomes, scenarios, but the final decision was always mine. James was my beacon of hope at a time when my options appeared limited. I was out of state after the accident which made parts of the case challenging. As our case moved along the three years, our phone conversations felt more like family, that James C. Suits II “was protecting me and my best interest”. James worked diligently behind the scenes defending me, and in his calm and empathetic demeanor offered me emotional support. I am eternally grateful for James C. Suits II service and I hereby recommend Mr. James C. Suits II without reservation. James was awesome to work with, we have never met in person (I will one day meet James in person and shake his hand). It was from our first phone conversation that I knew I could trust James C. Suits with my case, and my best interest. Above all else, give James C. Suits II your first call in your search for an attorney. I promise you all your other attorney conversations won’t measure up too or feel like the conversation you just had with attorney James C. Suits II.

Highly Recommend
Working with James Suits was very positive and uplifting experience. He spent a lot of time to educate me, navigate through the process, restoring my confidence during the frustrating and stressful period. From the start he impressed me by the depth of his professional knowledge, ability to precipitate the right content from emotional and lengthy explanations and present the case in clear and concise form. I appreciate his delicate and sincere style of dealing with a sensitive matter, his great advice and no judgment, his patience and flexibility with scheduling appointments. In the end, we achieved a good settlement of the case and a peace of mind for me. I definitely recommend James Suits to everyone who needs legal advice or representation. It was a pleasure to work with you James, thank you.

Attorney James Suits is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field. His expertise gave me the confidence to trust him. He is an excellent communicator. If I raised any concerns, they were immediately addressed. He responded immediately by phone call, email, or in-person appointments. He made me feel that my case was the only one being handled by him despite having many cases. He is very courteous and attentive, helping the procedure go very smoothly. I highly recommend him.

An attorney with Integrity, who's also very Reliable & Flexible
Jim did an excellent job on my case, which is a rather small & compromised case, since I have pre-existing condition. Jim was able to get my recovery settlement more than what I expected. What blew me away was when I offered to compensate him 5% more than our agreed fee, Jim was very turned it down, saying he's fine with what we agreed. Wow! I was very surprised. Thought nobody would refuse more money. Hat off to you, Jim!

Great job, expectations exceeded
James dealt with a difficult insurance adjuster and managed to negotiate a settlement on my behalf that exceeded my expectations. James maintained a good line of communication with me during the settlement process so I was always in the loop and was never surprised by any development. I would recommend James highly to anyone who has a personal injury case.

Hire him Now.
It is very simple. Jim Suits is a lawyer you should hire immediately. He handled my case with a high level of expertise and as a result I received the best possible outcome for my injuries and property damage. I was riding my bike one Saturday morning and was hit by a motor vehicle. I suffered heavy injuries which included multiple lesions, 6 broken ribs, and a major concussion. I continue to have migraine headaches. I contacted Mr. Suits and he took control of my case as I recovered from my injuries. Mr. Suits handled the opposing insurance company with a high level expertise. The insurance company representing the motorist were difficult and fought to protect their client and their own assets. The driver was clearly at fault but the insurance company tried to downplay his liability. Mr. Suits put together an intelligent strategy that put the pressure back on the insurance company. He has excellent communication skills. I loved that I was always able to contact Mr. Suits through email or by phone. He answered any questions I had regarding my case promptly and clearly. Whenever the representative from the insurance company sent him anything he quickly forwarded it to me and then always let me review any documents he sent on my behalf. The documents Mr. Suits created were impeccable. Getting hit by a car on my bike was one of the worst days in my life. Physical and emotional pain, financial strain, and uncertainty about my case and health was extremely stressful. However, James Suit executed a brilliant plan to give me the absolute best result for my case. Thank you, thank you Mr. Suits.
