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.
