About Personal Injury Attorney, Jim Dodson

Choosing an experienced Florida Personal Injury lawyer is the most important decision you will make. For more than 25 years, Mr. Dodson, the founder of Jim Dodson Law, and his staff have been successfully representing clients like you. We are proud of the fact that by limiting our practice to the representation of injury victims only, we have obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for our clients.

Jim Dodson is an experienced Florida personal injury and bicycle, injury lawyer. After many years as the managing partner of a large established law firm, Jim decided to leave and open his own office. While he had a successful law practice, he was not satisfied. Handling hundreds of cases left him no time to get to know his clients beyond how their accidents happened and their injuries. Jim wanted his clients to experience more.

In 2001, he formed Jim Dodson Law. His goal was to give each client and their case the time and personal attention he would want his own family to receive if they were in the same situation. But, he also wanted his clients to know him and trust that he would do everything possible, under the law, to right the wrong that had been done and gets them the settlement they deserved. As a result, many people over the years have told Jim he has restored their faith in lawyers.

After many years of helping victims of motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice and other injuries, Jim took up road cycling for exercise and enjoyment. He realized there was a dire need in the cycling world for someone to advocate for cyclists and help them after being injured in a crash caused by a careless or inattentive driver. Injured cyclists appreciate the personal experience Jim has as a cyclist and the perspective his experience adds to their representation. Cycling cases have become the dominant focus of Jim’s practice.

The law practice Jim enjoys today is what he envisioned. The friendships he has established over the years go beyond a typical attorney-client relationship. Long after a case is resolved, Jim’s clients rely on him to be their trusted resource for guidance and feel comfortable about calling him with any future legal needs they may have.
