Client Testimonials

  • Life has many surprises, some of which are not pleasant and many times almost tragic. My 95 year old Mother and I were involved in a very serious car accident, in which my car was totaled. We were ambulanced to the hospital in serious condition. Life also presents us with many important decisions, which could be life altering. I contacted Jim Coogan, whom I knew to be knowledgeable in this area of law. It was a decision that turned out to be very wise.

    Jim was always very accessible and approachable and handled the entire matter in an exceptionally professional manner. During the entire legal process he was brilliant, and yet always caring and considerate during our hospitalization. Due to Jim’s outstanding efforts the entire episode came to a most satisfactory conclusion.
