About Attorney Jim Dodson

Jim Dodson is an experienced Clearwater personal injury and wrongful death 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 accident 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 get them the settlement they deserved.  As a result, many people over the years have told Jim he has restored their faith in lawyers.

The law practice Jim enjoys today is what he envisioned. He’ll be the first to tell you this is why he enjoys coming to the office each day. 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.
