He's a injury law Expert !!!
Mr. Armstrong is representation that you can rely on! I had been battling with the department of labor and industries for 5 yrs to reopen my claim, I even had a lawyer withdraw from my case a week before my mediation hearing, which the lawyer at that time decided I no longer had a case worth representing. So I was left with a major injury of the ACL, quad muscle above my knee. After calling numerous Law Firms, and sharing the history of my case, it all fell on deaf ears, and I had even been told "there's not enough evidence to help reopen the claim". Well after calling all the major Law Firms that charge an arm and leg of upwards $500 an hour, I kept searching and came across Mr. Armstrong Law Firm. Since I was in the middle of hearings without counsel, before hiring Attorney Armstrong- when I contacted his office, he was quick, prompt in scheduling a meeting to go over my case. After we went over my injury history, he took my claim. We went to my hearing, and he got my claim reopened with all my benefits I'm entitled, I was amazed! He definitely knows how to apply his expertise in injury law , along with strong argument! Mr. Armstrong takes his time to explain everything in layman's terms so there's no confusion, and takes the time to answer all questions, and concerns... and he gets back to messages very quickly! It's hard to find an Attorney who actually cares... you're NOT treated like a case file number, or yacht payment. Mr. Armstrong has helped me secure the medical care I've needed for a knee injury I couldn't even walk on, and now I'm regaining strength, and life is getting back to normal for me slowly but surely, thanks to Attorney Armstrong!!!!!

Excellent Attorney!!!
I would recommend Mr. Armstrong to anyone that needs an EXCELLENT Attorney dealing with Labor/Injury Law!!! He has been informative, responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy and goes beyond his required/normal duties of giving me counsel and advice. Mr. Armstrong, upholds family values very high and it shows in his character and his practice as an Attorney. He understands different cultures and people who are struggling from different socio-economic backgrounds and will fight for what you/client deserves and more!!! He has helped my Family and I, throughout the years and I am so lucky and proud to have James W. Armstrong as my Attorney. I am being truthful and honest that if you want to have positive and helpful results for you and your Families future, I would highly recommend Attorney James W. Armstrong. My family and I would like to thank you, Attorney Armstrong, for helping us at every difficult corner that we faced throughout the years and showing us that there is "LIFE" after a work-related injury.
