  • It's been a wonderful experience to be associated with this law firm and I would recommend Jim Dodson Law.

    Well, in May of this year my brother was struck and killed by a car on Ulmerton Rd. and being in the state of mind that I was when this happened to him, I really didn't know where to turn or what to do. I felt as though I needed some help. I called the office. We had a conversation and Jim immediately lifted the burden from me of what I needed to do at this time. And, from that point forward, everything was handled in a very smooth manner. I didn't have any worries. I completely had faith in what was happening and that he had my best interest at heart to be able to handle everything that I had to do after my brother passed away. It's very hard to reconcile that the person you've taken care of is gone. My brother was a single man. I cut his hair. I gave him my leftovers. He lived a mile away. I clothed him. I bought him shoes when he needed shoes. He was basically like my child. And, I felt like I lost my child. I doubt that I even would have thought about the legal things until my mind was clear. And, knowing that that was being taken care of was really good because I had enough to take care of. Just with my own physical and mental stability. How sad that my brother's life meant so little and that the insurance company was on the side of their client, and that my brother didn't matter. It's a relief of the burden. It was something that I could just release into someone else's hands. Kind of like you give things over to God. He takes care of them and you leave it. You leave it with him. You leave it with the attorney and whatever is God's will it's gonna work out for however it needs to be. It has been a very wonderful experience to be associated with this law firm and if someone were in need as I was, I would totally recommend that they contact Jim Dodson's firm. Not only did it run very smoothly for me but he is a very caring man. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I came in and spoke to Mr. Dodson and he eased all my worries.

    I was involved in a motor vehicle accident in December of 2012. After the accident I was very stressed because I had been driving my boss's car during the accident and I was very concerned about how that was going play out with the insurance. A good friend of mine recommended Jim Dodson Law offices. I came in and spoke to Mr. Dodson and he eased all my worries. He made the whole process very stress free for me. He answered all my questions. He was always available when I had a question or needed something. His staff was wonderful to work with. And, he gave me the opportunity to focus on getting well and feeling better. I would strongly recommend that if you're in my situation where you're not sure about what to do, give him a call and come in and talk with him. I really felt like when I came to talked to him, it was like talking to a friend, almost like talking to my neighbor. It wasn't a situation where I felt uncomfortable where he was the lawyer and I was the client. We just sat and talked and he was able to put my mind at ease. And throughout the entire process of this whole thing, he has been very helpful and always responsive to any questions. I do believe that I was not just a number, I was not just a case. I was a person to him and when I had a question, he would call me himself. And, I just felt a very personal touch here versus having dealing with someone that you know may have this huge case load. If you really want a personalized attorney, someone that's there for you, Jim Dodson is where you should be. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • This was my first experience with a lawyer and I am so thankful I was referred to Jim Dodson.

    I was very anxious after my car crash about what would happen. I am so thankful I was referred to Jim Dodson. This was my first experience with a lawyer, and I didn’t know what to expect. What a surprise! My case was handled so seamlessly. It was entirely stress free. I would recommend Jim Dodson Law to anyone who needs an injury lawyer. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I was impressed that any question I had was answered so promptly. I was never left wondering what was happening.

    I was impressed that any question I had was answered so promptly. I was never left wondering what was happening. During our negotiation, Mr. Dodson knew exactly what to do. His skill resulted in a settlement of more than I expected. While he was working with me, I went through emotional ups-and-downs due to dealing with my injury. Jim and Judi were so patient, kind and calm in dealing with me. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim Dodson Law to anyone needing help after an accident. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • In the end, I got 100 times more than the first offer the insurance company made.

    I knew I needed an attorney who would believe in me and my situation and support me on my beliefs. In talking with Jim, it was never about ‘well, if I take your case, here are your fees.’ We didn’t even talk about that. We talked about what Jim could sincerely do to help me. By the time we finished the conversation, I felt trust, cared for, kindness and genuine concern. I knew whatever it would take; I had found the right person. It was an easy decision to hire Jim. I felt no need to look any further or talk to another attorney. People told me ‘don’t get an attorney; they’ll just take away from the money I’d get from the insurance company.’ But, I wasn’t thinking like this. I just wanted someone who was going to guide me through medical help and help me so I didn’t have to live in pain the rest of my life. My thought was getting someone to support me and that’s where Jim came in. I never felt pressured – just a general concern – from Jim and Judi, his paralegal. I was never pressured when the insurance company came back with a second and third amount of money (in settlement.) In the end, I got 100 times more than the first offer the insurance company made! But again, it came through persistence. I felt extremely well supported with Jim Dodson and at the end; we had the most positive outcome that we could have gotten. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Jim Dodson was recommended highly to me. He is a lawyer who has integrity and strong ethics.

    Jim Dodson was recommended very highly to me after my accident. I really valued Jim’s level of communication and his ability to keep me informed. His ethics are above and beyond… he is honest and has integrity. I was very satisfied with my experience.  Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Jim is a family guy who cares about peopleā€¦ he really wants to help you.

    From the first time I came into the office, Jim made me feel very welcomed. He is very professional. I felt like time was taken with me to explain everything, how things worked and I wasn’t rushed. I knew Jim was the right guy because he seemed genuinely interested in me and my problems and what was going to be best for me, not what money he was going to make.  I mattered. I wasn’t just a number. Jim is a family guy who cares about people… he really wants to help you. I was really shocked at how fast he settled my case with the insurance company. Jim, you don’t know how much I appreciate it. You all have made this a lot more painless, without you I don’t know what I’d be doing right now. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I would not hesitate to recommend him highly to anyone looking for a lawyer after sustaining a serious injury.

    During my over twenty year career as a claims adjuster handling major accident cases in Florida for a national insurance company I dealt with personal injury lawyers daily. I saw exactly how an effective and carefully prepared lawyer helps get the best results in their client's case. Since I retired, I have been consulting with accident lawyers. I have worked with them in both large and small firms, including numerous cases with Jim Dodson. Jim stands out as an attorney who gets personally involved and develops a full understanding of all aspects of each case. This allows him to be very effective in presenting his client's case in a way that significantly increases the likelihood of a favorable resolution. I greatly respect the level of passion and commitment Jim demonstrates to each client's case. I would not hesitate to recommend him highly to anyone looking for a lawyer after sustaining a serious injury. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • We live in Punta Gorda but distance was never an issue because we could always meet at an agreeable location.

    Everyone we dealt with at Jim Dodson Law has been honest and upfront with any answers that we needed. We knew they were working very diligently for our interests. We live in Punta Gorda  (2 hours from Mr. Dodson’s office in Clearwater) but distance was never an issue because we could always meet at an agreeable location. It worked out well. Every time we called the office we got a good result from the phone call. Our calls were always returned - if it wasn't from Jim, it was from Judi. She is like Jim’s right arm and always very pleasant to deal with. If I were to find a lawyer, I wouldn't go any further than picking Jim Dodson - he has been fantastic working for us and we are very satisfied. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Everything at Jim Dodson Law worked in a family way. We were very comfortable. That's why I recommend him his firm.

    I feel like I am at home when I come to Jim to discuss our case. We were very comfortable discussing our case. Everything at Jim Dodson Law worked in a family way. Jim described everything in the beginning about how it would be and it was very clear. We agreed and we went ahead and filed. Everything went very smooth. I wish for everyone to get the same results. When I go to another lawyer, it is very difficult to meet with him, he looks at his watch to see how much time he has spent with me. But at Jim's office it is different; it was very, very, very good. That’s why I recommended Jim to a friend. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.
