Jim and his staff treated us like family. They answered any questions we had and we're always keeping us up to date on everything happening. Jim was not only my attorney but became a good friend when I needed him. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family.

Railroad Whistleblower
Rossi Vucinovich did a great job representing my interests in Federal District Court Tacoma. Their thorough preparation, trial strategy, and superb courtroom skills resulted in a jury award of $1.25 Million – one of the largest whistleblower awards on record. When going up against the unlimited resources of big railroads, corporations or insurance companies, you had better have a trial lawyer that knows his way around a courtroom. Jim is the best I’ve seen and I’m glad I chose Rossi Vucinovich for my legal needs. Mike Elliott Railroad Whistleblower

Recommendation for Mr Vucinovich
Mr Vucinovich and his Team are awesome! We always felt that our personal care and health were most important during this long ordeal. Mr Vucinovich's Team, which included in house members as well as Industry Specialists were always available to explain complicated health or legal issues in simple terms. On multiple occasions we experienced positive results.

My experience was not great.
I did not feel that my time with Jim was handled well. Felt as if there was a lot of cases they were juggling and I was often referred to by the wrong name by staff. I was sent to doctors that were curious as to why I was there for the treatment I was seaking ultimately to have to stick with a terrible doctor in the end so that it did'nt look like we were "doctor shopping". I feel like I was pushed and pursuaded to go in a certain direction for the result of the case, only to at the end be left with not much for now, nor the future. My injuries are far from over and the monitary yieldings won't take care of the future at all. I hope that nobody that goes through a life altering situation will be met with insenstivety and low work rate I encountered. Do your homework, don't just settle for someone becuase you don't know any better. Not just the fault of this firm, shame on the union for nogotiating such poor terms when you need help the most.
