  • My experience with Mr. Dodson's office was nothing short of excellent. I highly recommend that if you ever have a problem with cycling, you need to call Jim.

    I did not know what my rights were as a cyclist. I did not know that I was entitled to be compensated from these people from my injuries. I just knew that my life had changed pretty drastically and I needed help. I received a lot of good advice, great advice from Mr. Dodson. All the time that I was dealing with Mr. Dodson's office, his assistant, Judi was incredibly helpful. There was never a time when I called that office where I wasn't gotten back to immediately. I was so bewildered when I was hurt but you know I was really fortunate to have somebody to have the knowledge of where I should go to get help. My experience with Mr. Dodson's office was nothing short of excellent. I highly recommend that if you ever have a problem with cycling, you need to call Jim. He's also a cyclist so he knows what it's like to be out there and how we are putting our lives in danger sometimes just by being on a bike. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • The things that were important to us were his character, his knowledge, his expertise, energy and willingness to take care of our problems. It's hard to describe what your life is like when that whole burden has been relieved from you.

    The things that were important to us were his character, his knowledge, his expertise, energy and willingness to take care of our problems. And, as we worked through these very difficult problems, his office staff was very supportive. And, anytime we would call, they would take our calls, they weren't shuttled or delayed, so we constantly had the feeling of support. I don't feel we would have had the outcome that we did without Jim. It was his excellent negotiating skills with the insurance company. We got a fair settlement and Jim's very ethical in how he handled settlement. It's hard to describe what your life is like when that whole burden has been relieved from you. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I was shocked that it ended so fast. We won the case one hundred percent. People were telling me it's gonna be years. I don't believe that eight months later, it's all finished. I can go on with my life now.

    Working with Jim Dodson was a very professional experience. Every time I would talk to Jim, he would sit down and listen and then tell me his opinion and what he was going to do. I thought that I would have to go to the office or my wife would have to go to the office but no, he came to the house and he sat around my table like he was family. It was great. It was a great experience. I felt like this was the man I could trust. I was shocked that it ended so fast. We won the case one hundred percent. People were telling me it's gonna be years. I don't believe that eight months later, it's all finished. I can go on with my life now. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Jim brought the playing field to an even status. What he was able to accomplish was something I simply couldn't accomplish. In the day of negotiations, we felt comfortable going in that we had the right man. When we came out we were absolutely confident that he had done the very best and then some to represent us.

    I called some friends in the bike club and they said "hey, there's this guy named Jim Dodson, he's an avid rider, he's a member of most of the bike clubs, he's a cycling advocate and he's a pretty good guy, so why don't you give him a call." Jim took the heat off of all the stuff that I had to worry about. As far as even getting the bicycle repaired all the way through the legal process. He was always in contact with me as far as how I was doing with the medical recovery and even how my wife Joyce was doing. I knew that Jim really cared about me as an individual. You don't get well quickly. It takes a long, long time. And, that's one of things I'll always remember. I consider Jim to be a friend because of the personal relationship that we developed. He was always readily available to me and kept in close contact the entire time. Jim brought the playing field to an even status. What he was able to accomplish was something I simply couldn't accomplish. In the day of negotiations, we felt comfortable going in that we had the right man. When we came out we were absolutely confident that he had done the very best and then some to represent us. And, that was most important. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I believe in what Jim Dodson stands for and what he does. And, I knew that he would take care of my situation with the dignity and respect that I was looking for.

    I just can't say enough. He took the weight of the world off my shoulders that day. And, I knew that he would take care of my situation with the dignity and respect that I was looking for. I believe in what Jim Dodson stands for and what he does. I believe there are a lot of people out there like me that are injured and have trouble. We all get into trouble, yet we don't know who to call or how to take care of the problem. There is so much bad publicity out there about lawyers. We've all heard it all and it's not true. There are good people out there that can work with your values and take good care of you and it can be a very positive experience. And, working with Jim was a very positive experience for me. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Jim being a cyclist made me feel like he knew exactly what I went through. He’s heard a lot of other cyclists' stories who have gone through something similar. I wanted to have him on my side even more.

    Finding an attorney is hard. I'm not the type that is going to call a number that is on the side of a bus. I see them as rackets just to get people in. With Jim’s office I never felt that. We’re on a first name basis. They get to know you. I wasn’t Mr. “Smith” calling to ask for Mr. Dodson about Case # X. Jim being a cyclist made me feel like he knew exactly what I went through. He’s heard a lot of other cyclists' stories who have gone through something similar. I wanted to have him on my side even more. When we did get to the mediation it was a completely new process for me, all that back and forth, it's like a legal dance. I didn't understand it. I was just kind of mesmerized by it and at the end, I got a settlement I was very happy with. It was actually more than I had even anticipated and the process lasted even shorter than I expected as well. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • There was no other attorney I would hire. Jim’s a professional you can rely on to stand by you.

    My wife and I were injured in a cycling crash years ago. Jim Dodson represented my wife. Because of the circumstances of the accident, I was told I needed to hire my own lawyer. We were new to Florida, so I just went with a big Clearwater firm after seeing their ad in the phone book. I didn’t get the same personal attention or have the communication with a lawyer that my wife had with Jim. And, they closed my case very quickly. We were involved in an accident again this year and Jim immediately came to my mind. There was no other attorney I would hire. Jim’s a professional you can rely on to stand by you. And, he’s also a friend. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I immediately liked what I read on Jim’s website including he was not with a large group. Next to choosing to marry my husband, choosing Jim as our personal injury attorney was the best decision I’ve ever made.

    Soon after my husband had a biking accident, I realized that I would probably need a personal injury attorney. The only attorney I knew was the lawyer who drew up our wills. She recommended two personal injury attorneys. I researched both online. I immediately liked what I read on Jim’s website including he was not with a large group. Next to choosing to marry my husband, choosing Jim as our personal injury attorney was the best decision I’ve ever made. My husband’s severe injuries prevented him from participating in my selection of Jim. Throughout my husband’s long illness, I had numerous questions and conversations with Jim and Judi. Jim explained to me that I could not hire him as my husband was the one injured. Nevertheless, Jim was always easily accessible and answered my questions and gave me good advice on a settlement issue. Finally after three months, my husband was well enough to meet with Jim, Judi and staff. Jim was everything and more than was written on the website – very knowledgeable, wise counselor, always available, always answered phone calls and emails, kind, hardworking and more. After our initial meeting, we were completely assured that we had made the right decision to have Jim Dodson represent us. Jim explained uninsured motorists insurance to us, which was very important. His excellent negotiating skills with the insurance companies resulted in a fair settlement and Jim was very ethical in his handling of the settlement. Without his guidance, the legal outcome would have not been possible. We also appreciated and learned from Jim’s booklets especially the Florida Bicycling Accident Handbook, which we wish we had read before the accident. Judi’s handling of all the EOBs and medical paperwork were such a relief because I knew I had someone to turn to with medical billing questions. I can honestly say that my husband’s recovery and the maintenance of my health and sanity would have not been possible without Jim Dodson and staff. If you should ever need a personal injury lawyer, don’t hesitate. Call Jim Dodson ASAP. You will be thankful that you did. We definitely are. We are eternally grateful to you for all you have done for us. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I knew right away he was the lawyer for me because of his commitment to the bicycling community.

    When I was badly injured in a bicycle crash I didn't know much about the law. I found Jim online and studied his website. When I called, I knew right away he was the lawyer for me based on his long term commitment to the bicycling community. He didn't let me down. Jim is the lawyer I would recommend if you’ve been hurt in a cycling accident. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.
