  • I read your article in the VHA Voice. I want to thank you for providing such an important article creating awareness and educating Village residents.

    I read your article in the VHA Voice regarding the Bike Friendly Advocacy Group safety and related insurance information. I am an avid bicyclist biking daily in The Villages 15-20 miles. I practice safety when biking, stay out of high traffic areas but still experience close calls with golf carts. I have often wondered if someone did hit me whether they would even stop. I wish that all golf carts had some form of license plate. After reading your article, I looked up the declaration page for my auto insurance and fortunately I have Uninsured Motorist "stacked" $300k per person/ $300K per occurrence. I am not sure what stacked means and should be contacting my insurance company to ask them. I want to thank you for providing such an important article creating awareness and educating Village residents. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Every month I read your articles in the Florida Freewheelers newsletters and have really enjoyed them. I will continue to read your words of wisdom every month.

    Every month I read your articles in the Florida Freewheelers newsletters and have really enjoyed them. The August/2016 issue was particularly interesting for me. Little did I know that in October of this year after a hard 48 mile "B" ride that I would be diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis. Your article was well written and described exactly what happened to me. I wanted to pass this information to you on how the Veterans Administration is treating me. They have prescribed Coumadin, 800 mg of Ibuprofen and 500 mg of methocarbamol. The Physicians detected the Deep Vein Thrombosis by performing a Venus Doppler Scan on my left calf muscle just below the left knee. Lastly, the Physicians told me that if I had not sought treatment for this condition it could have become a life threatening condition. At 68 years of age that was a very sober moment for me. Again "Thank You" for the article and I will continue to read your words of wisdom every month. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

I would definitely recommend your Law Firm to a family member or friend. Thank You for assisting me with this matter.

  • What I’ve come to realize through this experience is that a lot of people do not understand the seriousness of the head injury. Jim understands all of the subtle problems I was having with being unable to focus, memory issues and loss of motor skills. He is knowledgeable about neurological testing. As a result he worked out a policy limits settlement of my case that will really help me.

    In 2015 I was involved in a car crash and suffered a concussion and neck injuries. A friend at work suggested I call Jim Dodson and I am so thankful that I did. Jim and his staff were great to work with and always did what they told me they were going to do. I was particularly struck by Jim’s patience with me during times when I would ask him the same question repeatedly due to my post-concussion problems. What I’ve come to realize through this experience is that a lot of people do not understand the seriousness of the head injury. Jim understands all of the subtle problems I was having with being unable to focus, memory issues and loss of motor skills. He is knowledgeable about neurological testing. As a result he worked out a policy limits settlement of my case that will really help me. I’m a hard person to impress and do not give praise easily. Jim and his staff are the real deal. You’ll not find any better. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Jim is one of very few attorneys I have felt comfortable with. My honest opinion… he is in a category all to himself. I believe Jim cares about his clients and treats us as friends and not as a walking dollar sign.

    Jim is one of very few attorneys I have felt comfortable with. Having retired from law enforcement, I have had to deal with criminal attorneys on both sides as well as civil attorneys. My honest opinion… he is in a category all to himself. I believe Jim cares about his clients and treats us as friends and not as a walking dollar sign.   I am not a big fan of personal injury attorneys to be quite honest. I say this only because of previous negative interactions… I believe Jim has a belief not only in our Lord… but also a belief that treating people with respect, dignity and compassion is the right thing to do - a rare quality unfortunately, in the legal community and what sets Jim apart from his fellow attorneys. I have recommended Jim already and will continue to refer him in the future.” Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I love reading Jim's newsletters. Thank you all for the great newsletters and the legal services you provide to the bicycle riders!!!

    I hadn’t realized that Jim sponsors the Horrible Hundred... I love reading his newsletters. I just clipped the article about success and what it means. I pinned it to my board at work where I can see it every day. I love that “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal”. It inspires me to make a radical change in my life. Thank you all for the great newsletters and the legal services you provide to the bicycle riders!!! Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • I have worked with him more than one time and with Jim, what you see is what you get. He is honest, trustworthy and down to earth. He never misrepresents anything.

    Jim was highly recommended to me by someone who has known him for many years. His office is not high pressure with paralegals running in and out of offices. I have worked with him more than one time and with Jim, what you see is what you get. He is honest, trustworthy and down to earth. He never misrepresents anything. I have recommended Jim to others over the years. He's a good attorney and a good friend! 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.

  • 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.
