A Proven Reputation
"Forrest Cressy James is an amazing law firm that provides tremendous attention and care to all their clients and their needs.
When I was injured in my accident, Nick was never more than a call away from answering my questions and counseling through the process of rehab, recovery, and gaining restitution. I never once felt as if I was just another customer and instead felt like I was a friend and family member who they were willing to fight for to the end.
FCJ will always be the most trusted firm in my book."
“After trying to handle my personal injury claim on my own, and becoming completely overwhelmed, I reached out to Byron for assistance.
My claim was resolved quickly for well over six figures and most importantly, I had peace-of-mind in knowing that I wasn’t taken advantage of by insurance companies.
If you want a law firm that is professional, efficient, and treats you like a person, not just a “file number,” Forrest Cressy James is your team."
"I have had at least two occasions with accidents where the other drivers were not honest with their insurance company. It’s a situation police don’t always have time for right away, and my city has tourists that will treat it as if it never happened.
I can honestly say I didn’t have any stress in the cases. Not from the insurance companies (mine and theirs) and most importantly no pressure from my attorneys.
There was never a moment I felt alone in this. A+ from start to end. I ended up recovering $150,000 thanks to Byron and Eliza."
