  • “This was my 1st time using James Ponton & i can honestly say that i am very pleased with his services. Very professional & forthcoming about the process of the claim. I was struck by a tractor trailor & received several injuries which required 2 surgeries. He always returned phone calls & sent emails keeping me aware of the process. My case was settled at Mediation without having to go to court for a handsome amount. I am very pleased with his services & would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a personal injury attorney.”
  • “I highly recommend Attorney James Ponton to anyone who has a personal injury case. I’ve had bad experiences with attorneys in the past I was reluctant to trust another attorney. However, Attorney Ponton proved to be knowledgeable,trustworthy,professional and caring. He was in contact with me by phone,email and text. I consulted him after another firm had mishandled my case and his advise allowed me to settle it. He is now my family personal injury accident attorney.” Posted by: Mattie Strozier
  • Mr. Ponton and his staff were extremely professional. Every time I contacted his office I spoke with him directly and if he was out of the office his assistant would help me. My phone calls were returned within the same day and I was constantly informed about my litigation process from beginning to end. I was very impressed with the personal service, compassion, friendliness (yet professional), and the personal interest Mr. Ponton and his staff take to ensure their customers are satisfied. I would certainly have him as my counsel again should the need arise and would recommend him in a heartbeat!”Posted by: LJ Sardinas
