Jim's Philosophy

“At McEldrew Young, our philosophy is to fight for you and your family everyday until you get the result and the peace of mind that you deserve. For the past 30 years, my goal has been to maximize your recovery for one reason: I care. I see every client as a partner and a friend, and take a vested interest in each case.

I understand that injured people do not need additional stress, and it’s not fair to leave them to fend for themselves with complex insurance rules or uncertainties about the legal system. All the injury attorneys at McEldrew Law take a vested interest in your case, and work on a contingency fee basis, meaning it doesn’t cost you a dime unless we win, because we view ourselves as partners in your case. Every client we serve benefits from prompt and direct access to me, the founding attorney. All of my clients have my personal cell phone number – the same one my wife and children have.

I have dedicated my life to helping injured people. I understand the level of investigation, preparation and courtroom skill necessary to overcome stiff opposition such as huge corporations, major law firms or multinational insurers, which is why I have won over 200 million dollars in settlements for our clients.”
