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.Richard G.
