Paul stuck with my case, as it wound through 3 years of medical treatments as a result of a car accident. He has to be the best accident attorney there is and won't let go until full satisfaction is obtained. I highly recommend Paul.

I was hit in a car vs pedestrian accident. Paul was excellent in resolving this case with the other insurance company for a favorable outcome. Beyond being professional, he was also compassionate - and his shock on my behalf that the driver didn't inform her own insurance company made me feel that I was in good hands. He let me know what was required of me, and what he and his team would do for me. He was very open to any questions and very knowledgeable about the whole process. I recommend Paul for any personal injury or car accident claim.

I needed someone to get me through the burdensome task of getting the insurance company to pay bills. Paul not only got the bills paid, but he helped me understand the ins-n-outs of the entire process. I felt like my case was in very good hands and the stress load was lifted tremendously.
Thank you Paul and staff!!

I know firsthand the depth of Paul’s knowledge of personal injury law after receiving his assistance in a recent case. Paul truly understands the nuances of cases and is equally accomplished in the courtroom. I highly recommend Paul to family and friends based on his experience and thorough preparation.

I have worked with Mr. Vames on multiple cases over the years. I have always found him to be extremely competent, capable, knowledgeable about the law, and ready to take a case all the way through trial if necessary. He puts his clients' interests above all else. He is not afraid to fight the other side. Because of his background working for insurance companies in the past, he understands their tactics and how they evaluate cases. He uses this knowledge to achieve outstanding results for his clients. I strongly endorse him as an attorney.
