Great Representation
I’m so grateful to have retained James Lewis after my car accident. I ran into multiple issues with an under-insured at fault driver, and Mr. Lewis handled everything with both my insurance company and the at fault driver’s. His communication during the entire litigation was timely and efficient. He explained things to me in both technical and laymen’s terms to make sure I understood all aspects of the process and he was always available to answer questions in a timely manner. He was able to get the maximum payout in a short amount of time. I’m so thankful for an honest and trustworthy attorney and have recommended him to several friends who have also had positive experiences.
