5I Strongly Recommend Giving Mr. Cunningham A Call!
I consulted Mr. Cunningham regarding a recent car accident and found him to be informative and caring. His ability to convey the necessary elements of a personal case and necessary steps was in a manner that was both clear and informed. I would highly recommend Mr. Cunningham to anyone needing a lawyer. In my opinion, he is highly regarded for good reason and he does care.
My car accident case was handled by Mr Cunningham and I was very pleased with how everything was done. He handles his own cases and his staff is top notch. He got me a very nice settlement without going to court.
5No Better Attorney!
Our daughter was in a near fatal automobile accident as a passenger in March 2016. We contacted Jim Cunningham to help guide us through the “maize” of possible outcomes in settling with insurance companies, medical bills, and even police investigation with the accident. In our first visit Jim explained our options and offered to advise us on how to navigate these without him at no charge. My wife and I made the decision to retain him and it was by far the best decision we could have made. We felt we were much more than just a client and the outcome was better than expected and better than he had prepared us for.
I hired my lawyer and he really worked hard in my case. His staff and my attorney worked above and beyond all year to get the money I deserved and lost from my injuries amd lost time from my job. I was very pleased with their communication all the time thruogh this process. My attorney was amazing and would recommend him and his staff to anyone that asked. Thank you Mr Cunningham!!
5Definitely For the People!
I am more than pleased with the service and attention I received from Mr. Cunningham. I had originally presented my case to another well known attorney in the area. They had my case for over a year, then suddenly came back and told me they couldn’t handle my case because it wouldn’t be feasible for them, yet they are “for the people”. Mr Cunningham had my case for approximately 6 months and told me he had a settlement offer. If I ever need an attorney again I will be sure to call Mr. Cunningham. I am a very satisfied customer!!
I was in an automobile accident and didn’t know where to turn. My son-in-law recommended James Cunningham and I am so happy I took his advice. James and his staff were very professional and compassionate in guiding me through a difficult time. I highly recommend him.
Mr. Cunningham is a wonderful attorney and I would recommend him to anyone. He is not in it for the money. He actually generally cares about his client. I was in a bad accident involving a semi-truck in Sept. 2014 and he worked very hard and this case and got it settled in a little over a year. I am very satisfied with all of his hard work on my case he took the time to do. He made life better and easier for myself and for my 2-year-old son. I would tell anyone about how great that he is. My sister found him by his credentials and reviews and we met with him and hired him. That was the best decision that we made. Mr. Cunningham is great and if you need to hire him, you will not be a bit sorry. He is amazing.
5The best trustworthy, honest, grassroots attorney ever!
A few years ago, I had a really bad fall, due to faulty construction at a job assignment I was on. I dislocated my shoulder and needed surgery, and I couldn’t work for 4 months. After my surgery, I visited the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. to seek help after being turned down by 2 other major Orlando law firms basically telling me that I had no case. However, Jim saw it differently. He told me to be patient; keep records of all my doctor’s visits and therapy sessions; and keep a tally of my monthly wage loss. Jim was very helpful and got me a large settlement. I was able to pay all of my medical bills, plus recoup my wages that I lost during that time. I will refer him to anyone who’s exhausted from all of the “commercial attorneys” who seem to be more worried about pumping money into their commercials than looking out for the people. I highly recommend Jim and will refer him to anyone.
5Highly Recommend Mr. Cunningham
We highly recommend Mr. Cunningham and his office. We hired him this year after a car accident and were impressed with his expertise and timely, effective communication. Both times that we went to his office, we met with him directly. He answered all our questions and our case was resolved to our satisfaction.
5Highly Recommended Personal Injury Attorney (theme park injury/loss)
After doing some online research, I hired Mr. Cunningham to handle my personal injury claim, that occurred at a theme park in Florida. He not only met my expectations, he went above and beyond his duties. Mr. Cunningham and his staff always responded in a timely manner and explained to me every detail of my case. They kept me updated and informed without me having to ask. Sadly, I had to file bankruptcy before my settlement was final, and Mr. Cunningham handled the legal issues with the court trustee and help to resolve the claim. He is very professional and highly recommended!
5One of the good guys!
Mr. Cunningham and his staff made my life easier. After I was in a car accident I needed advice and direction. Mr. Cunningham took care of dealing with the issues of my case while I received treatment for my injuries. I am thankful that I chose the right man for the job! I would recommend James and his staff.
My wife & I were involved in an automobile accident in The Villages, FL four years ago, Jan. 2010 and were rear-ended. We both suffered lower back injuries, mine worse than hers. The other guy was at fault and his insurance company admitted as such but still tried to “cheap out” on our claim – deny & delay seems to be the tactic. We were left with no other option than to engage the services of a personal injury attorney and came upon Mr. Cunningham. Just prior to the Statute of Limitations running out, Mr. Cunningham was able to secure a settlement with the insurance company for BOTH me & my wife. Throughout the process, we found Mr. Cunningham to be knowledgeable, attentive to our needs, gave us trustworthy advice and kept us apprised as the process unfolded. And as Canadians in a US legal situation, Mr. Cunningham made us feel as comfortable as possible in understanding some of the legal differences, terminologies, etc., and other nuances of the law. We would have no problem recommending Mr. Cunningham to anyone requiring the professional services of a personal injury attorney…
James Cunningham is very professional. He handled my case for a car accident and he was able to get me a settlement for more money than I was expecting. He has extensive experience with car accident cases. He was always interested in providing advice and keeping me informed through the entire process.
His staff members are very professional and helpful. You will walk out feeling that you got the best settlement you could get. The best lawyer you will find.
5Great Attorney Who Cares!
Mr. Cunningham is a great attorney! To be honest he is in a whole different league than most lawyers. He actually cares about his clients, and gets to know them on a personal level. Not only was he knowledgeable, his staff was kind and caring. Mr. Cunningham went above and beyond my legal situation and obtained very favorable results for me. If you’re in Orlando and happen to get injured, I highly recommend you contact his office.
5Fast, reliable, and very fair
I was struck while riding my motorcycle several months ago, and needed a lawyer fast. After meeting with James while I was in the hospital, I felt confident in his ability to successfully represent me. He worked very quickly and was able to get my settlement with little to no delays or difficulties. As this was my first time working with a lawyer of any kind I didn’t know what to expect, however after dealing with James I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and dedication to keeping me informed daily. He even went so far as to cut a large portion of his legal fees so that I would end up with more money in my pocket! I would highly recommend James to anyone looking for a lawyer who actually cares about his clients, and works hard to get them the best possible outcome.
5Motor Vehicle Accident while Vacationing
Two years ago I was on a vacation in Florida to visit with close friends. While there, my friend’s car was rear-ended by another vehicle at relatively slow speeds. We received quite a jolt forward but thought nothing was wrong. A short while later I began to suffer severe neuropathy in my hands, feet, and lower legs. The issue became progressively worse and after numerous visits to different specialists I was referred to a surgical neurologist. He informed me that I would require spinal fusion surgery to repair damaged disks in my neck that had been pushed into my spinal column, but the chance of me regaining feeling in my limbs, was slim. When it was determined that the damage was most likely due to the motor vehicle accident, I was not sure how to proceed, but Google came to my rescue. I found Jim Cunningham online and he and Barbara began the difficult process of helping me seek compensation from my home in Wisconsin. Jim was able to help me figure out the best course of action and helped guide me through the process (including overcoming many roadblocks) to a successful resolution. I had no idea what was involved in such a lawsuit, especially from half a country away, and Jim made the process much easier than I imagined. I highly recommend his law firm especially if you find yourself in a similar situation.
On February 3rd, as I left work riding my bicycle, I collided with a Jeep. My injuries were life threatening but luckily I survived. As I recovered in the hospital, my friends found Jim Cunningham to legally represent me. The day I met him, he was kind enough to meet me long after his office was closed for the day. He calmly and thoroughly explained the steps we had to take in order to claim compensation for my injuries and all the surgeries I will go through in the future. Jim and his assistant, Barbra, are professional, respectful and kind. I am so glad they were part of my team. I felt taken care of and Mr. Cunningham got me what I deserve. I highly recommend him.
5Highly Recommend Jim Cunningham!
When my son was injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year, I realized we needed to find an attorney right away but had no idea where to begin. While in the hospital I began researching local personal injury attorneys and found his reviews to be extremely positive so we made a call to his office. Jim came to the hospital and met with us and although we were going to interview another attorney as well, we were so impressed by his knowledge and experience, we realized that was unnecessary. He guided us through a difficult situation and was compassionate and answered all our questions honestly. We would undoubtedly hire him again, should the need arise. His moral character is beyond reproach which is difficult to find today in any field.
5Great Service (auto accident)
After totalling my vehicle my father recommended I retain Mr. Cunningham. A little online research lead us to Mr. Cunningham who made this case an easy process and educational. I recommend Jim Cunningham. He is doing a great service.
5Mr. Cunningham helped me through a very difficult time
I was injured in a workplace accident that reinjured my lower back after a previous surgery 20 years earlier and left me unable to perform the duties of my lifelong occupation. I had never been in a situation like this before. When I realized I needed a lawyer I began checking AVVO ratings. I saw Mr. Cunningham’s advertisement and rating and met with him. I found him to be honest and very trustworthy, every question I had was always answered promptly, and he and his staff were always there to help. I would highly recommend him to anyone in a situation like mine.
5Professional and Compassionate
Mr. Cunningham took on a difficult case. I was in a car accident, run off the road by a phantom vehicle which sped out of site before I crashed. Unaware of internal injuries, I came away thinking I was basically all right; but when I realized I was not, I began seeking treatment. The insurance company worked with me initially, but then they started questioning everything. I wish I had sought legal advice immediately after the accident instead of waiting. Fortunately, a family friend referred me to Mr. Cunningham. Hiring him was the best decision I made! He had the understanding and expertise to handle this case. He was very candid about the level of difficulty it presented but also the chance it had for a good outcome. I had an excellent advocate in Mr. Cunningham, and he made sure I was well-informed throughout the process. I appreciate the professional demeanor and compassion exhibited by him and his wonderful staff. I am very satisfied with the settlement, as it was a lot more than I expected! I highly recommend him to others.
5Where do i start?
I would certainly highly recommend James Cunningham. I am a Critical Care Nurse here in Orlando and was involved in a devastating car accident about a year ago. My situation was very complicated. I was at a new job and didn’t have my health insurance active yet, and due to my own negligence had an overlap in my car insurance. This would be the worst possible time for me to be in car accident and i was. I was injured pretty badly and needed a lot of medical intervention. I stayed in the hospital, followed by a rehab facility for a month. My hospital bills were beyond ridiculous. when i spoke to Mr. Cunningham, he didn’t promise me that he would be able to get my hospital bills payed, he simply told me that he would exhaust every and any available and unavailable resource to help me get out of my hole. Through out our journey he was persistent and relentless in fighting for me. In the end, not only did he get the hospital waive over $170,000 worth of bills, he also got my car replaced and i also received a financial settlement. This is by far more then i ever expected. I most definitely learned my lesson about the importance of having car insurance at all times. He helped me dodge a bullet on that one, my life could’ve went the opposite way, instead I’m back at work as a nurse and continuing with my life and for that I’m extremely grateful to Mr. Cunningham. He deserves an award or something. I would also like to thank Barbara for her kindness, and compassion. You’ll get to know her, she is amazing.
5Fantastic Attorney! You will be glad you found him. I certainly was!
After my experience with 3 different, well known, heavily advertised attorneys, who promised me everything and delivered NOTHING, I finally found Attorney James Cunningham. My experience with him was quite the opposite as he promised nothing and delivered everything. His assistant Barbara is fabulous, intelligent, and warm which really made for a pleasant experience during the whole process. Attorney Cunningham always returned phone calls, he always did what he said that he would do, and in my opinion went to extra mile. I would like to add that I am a future law student and have had previous experience in the legal profession and I was impressed by his professionalism and attention. I didn’t have a big money case, I didn’t have a strong case, but nonetheless I was never made to feel that way. I strongly suggest that you choose James Cunningham to represent you, as soon as you think you might need a lawyer. You will be in good hands.
5I would highly recommend James Cunningham
I am an Engineering Manager for a company in Longwood, Florida and live in Deltona in Volusia County. I was rear-ended in April of 2005 and was injured due to the negligence of another driver who was in a big hurry. Mr. Cunningham helped me to obtain a fair settlement as a result of that accident.
I was first referred to Mr. Cunningham by a good friend of mine at work. Everything my friend said about Mr. Cunningham was true. He was honest and straightforward and made me feel at ease from the moment that I first met him. He was concerned about my well being and seemed to genuinely care about me. I told him that I was a Christian and we both shared how much God was a part of our lives.
Later I came back to Mr. Cunningham in June of 2006 after I was rear-ended again by yet another careless person in a hurry. This second accident resulted in me having neck surgery in 2007. Jim was caring and concerned throughout my recovery after the surgery. He was very patient and encouraging during the more than 18 months that it took to obtain an equitable settlement for this second accident.
Then after I thought I was safe from ever being injured in a car again I was struck as a pedestrian in December of 2008. I again went back to Jim and he was astonished that I had been involved in yet another accident. As he works toward helping me with this most recent accident he has expressed the same genuine care and concern as he did the very first time that I had met him in 2005.
I honestly didn’t have a very high opinion about lawyers until I met James Cunningham. I now consider him a respected and cherished friend and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs assistance from a lawyer.
5Unsolicited Letter of Recommendation
In July of 2002 I was seriously injured in an automobile accident through the fault of another driver. Even though my injuries were thought to be minimal, Jim agreed to represent me in my dealings with the various insurance companies. He was very careful to explain Florida law to me, and to keep my expectations realistic. Later on, it became clear that I was much more seriously injured than was previously thought. The new medical revelations were difficult to interpret and still more difficult to prove. Jim and his staff were always supportive, understanding and professionally competent. At no time did Jim urge me to make any representation which was vague, untrue or misleading. On the contrary, he insisted on the highest standards of honesty and fair play. On the other hand, no stone was left unturned, and come mediation, were were in a position on unimpeachable rectitude and thorough preparation. We prevailed at mediation with an award that was fair for all concerned. Much is made of personal injury attorneys and their negative impact on insurance premiums and the general cost of doing business. No doubt some of it is deserved, but not in Jim’s case. Dealing with insurance companies requires the use of legitimate force, and Jim and his staff provide this in the time of your greatest need. We live in a land governed by the rule of law, and for this we should be grateful. We have good laws, and a good personal injury attorney like Jim is able to make sure they apply in your case.
