Vehicle accidents are generally horrific experiences — even when the damage is not severe. Everyone reacts differently to a crash.
We do what’s best for our clients, even if it isn’t best for our business. For instance, if you are found to be at fault for an accident, we’re still happy to help you set up your case. If the insurance company offers you an unfair settlement, we’re ready to fight for a better deal. Our commitment is to our clients, not anything or anyone else.
In the world of law, some professionals will very literally refer to clients by the number on their file. It’s not that they’re bad people — it’s just that they have more clients to work with than they can keep track of. But that really isn’t our style. We know each of our clients by name, and we could probably even tell you what’s going on with their kids’ soccer team.
People come to us during some of the most difficult times of their lives, and we believe that treating their situation with the respect and attention it deserves is the least we can do. That’s why we work with such conviction, and we like to think it’s why clients continue referring us to their friends and loved ones.
In addition to his 40+ years of experience, Jim brings an incredible air of positivity to our team. Clients love him because he’s very approachable and easy to get ahold of.
Like Jim, Jonathan is very accessible to clients and understanding of their situations. Additionally, he’s extremely results-driven and determined to make cases move.

If you’re trying to figure out which of our attorneys is right for you, don’t worry — you don’t have to decide between them.
At our firm, we take on every case as a team. In other words, we combine each of our individual strengths in order to get the best overall result for our clients.
So when you call or stop by our office, expect to receive a warm welcome from Jim, Jonathan, or another member of our staff. From there, ask about setting up a free consultation, and we’ll determine what our team can do for you.
You & your firm have definitely gone above & beyond what I ever expected from the firm. I never gave a second thought to any of my bills being paid.
We very much appreciate you taking care of our medical issues and giving us such great referrals... it is so nice not to have to worry about the payment of these bills.
You gave the education to make informative decisions and helped me completely understand the depth of my case.
WOW you really are amazing! Thank you for your patience, passion, and commitment to excellence!
Thank you over and over for everything you have done for us, you have become a part of our family.
When we take on a case, we do so with the understanding that we’re going to take care of today’s problem and remain available should that person need our guidance in the future. Our clients know they can count on us because we make our motives clear from the start.
First things first. We need to take care of the legal matter that’s currently causing you grief.
Whether that means walking you through paperwork, educating you on your rights, helping you determine a fair amount of compensation, or even escalating your case to trial, we’re on board. And rest assured, we’re prepared to see your matter through to the end.
Too many injury clients collect compensation only to have it dwindle away before they realized what’s happening. That’s why, as we work on your case, we won’t just be thinking about the now — we’ll be helping you take precautions to ensure your money goes where you want it. All we ask is that you take our advice to heart.
One thing we frequently hear from clients is that they’re surprised how easy it is to work with us. They’re so comfortable, in fact, that they sometimes call or come by to get advice — even on legal matters unrelated to personal injury. We want you to know that you can do the same.

We have always been very selective about who we invite onto our staff because, as a small firm, it’s important that every person here is actively contributing to our cause. As it turns out, our unique skill sets complement one another very well — to the point that we can handle each case as one cohesive unit. Over the years, we’ve found this team approach to be extremely effective.
Outside of work, we’re always looking for opportunities to better our community. Lately, for instance, we’ve been doing a lot of volunteer work with the local children’s hospital, as well as Avenues for Homeless Youth. These are causes we believe in, and it’s our pleasure to step in and make a difference.
