A Passion For
Our Clients’ Recovery

We have both the compassion for our clients and a passion to obtain the compensation they need to recover after a devastating injury.

The root of the word is passion, and that’s the core of our legal practice. We have great compassion for those who have suffered severe injuries through no fault of their own. To demonstrate our true compassion, we bring true passion to the selective cases we take.

From the earliest days of our founding, we set out to help those with the catastrophic injuries, as they need justice the most and have the most challenging cases  – the types of cases that inspired us to become lawyers in the first place.

Investing The Time In You!

The best trial attorneys know how to tell their clients’ stories. In today’s fast-paced world, we are inundated with news coverage of accidents and tragedies.

More importantly, he invests in his clients – in their stories, their struggles, and their goals. Jim has tried over 75 cases, telling the story of each client to ensure they receive the justice and compensation they deserve.
