Springfield personal injury lawyer James Ackerman is dedicated to providing the best service possible to its clients. Consumer Reports says that attorneys have a low rating for client satisfaction. We strive to be the exception. We make time for our clients by limiting the cases we take. We give prompt action and personal attention to each and every client. We handle injury claims on a contingent fee, to help our clients be able to afford the litigation. We give initial consultations for free on injury claims. We are happy to go to trial for our clients, but our reputation frequently allows us to settle claims out of court favorably for our client. Other lawyers frequently refer cases to us that they are unable or unwilling to handle. See what our clients have to say on our Testimonials pages. Our blog is available at Springfield Injury Lawyer. We return calls within 24 hours and send copies of documents to clients as a matter of course. Unlike larger firms we keep our clients informed about their cases and keep them advised as to the law. We feel part of our job is to educate our clients about their case.
