PERSONAL INJURY GROUP
The Morris James Personal Injury Group is comprised of four partners: Susan D’Alonzo Ament, Keith Donovan, Kevin Healy and Francis (Pete) Jones, who have a combined total of 81 years legal experience dealing with litigation related to motor vehicle accidents. Our lawyers practice in all Delaware Courts. Certain members of our group are admitted in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Our Morris James Personal Injury Group Manager Al Ament, is a retired Delaware State police officer.
Two of the Morris James Personal Injury Group partners, Pete Jones and Keith Donovan, originally started their legal careers as defense attorneys for automobile insurance companies, but realized they were much happier representing injured victims (victims of automobile accidents and victims of insurance companies). They were called upon by well-known insurance companies to represent them in court and provide legal advice.
Mr. Jones and Mr. Donovan bring to the Morris James Personal Injury Group a wealth of inside knowledge as to how our current insurance company opponents think and act. This gives clients of the Morris James Personal Injury Group an advantage. The Morris James Personal Injury Group attorneys have the unique ability to anticipate an insurance companys next tactic before it occurs, and arm our clients accordingly. Our attorneys, because of their unique knowledge, are constantly strategizing and focusing on what is the best tactic in a case to be proactive on behalf of each client. We take a proactive approach as opposed to reacting defensively, to achieve the best possible result for those we represent.
The Morris James Personal Injury Group attorneys not only litigate, we counsel. We believe an effective personal injury attorney must keep each and every client well informed and advised of our planned case strategy. In addition to legal knowledge, we believe compassionate effective communication skills are vital to the attorney/client relationship. Our attorneys are good listeners and all attorneys and their staff respond to client inquiries promptly and respectfully, whether that inquiry be by telephone, e-mail or in-office visit.
Our attorneys are very active outside the practice of law in community service, having been appointed to many church and community service organization boards. The compassion, understanding and respect they feel towards clients in the office, also drives them to serve their community and others in need. When a Morris James Personal Injury attorney represents you, there is more than an attorney/client relationship formed, there is a personal bond. Our attorneys want to get to know each client in order to be able to effectively prove all aspects of the devastation to their lives, as a result of an auto accident. For example, we need to understand how the accident and injuries impacted your life, such as pain and suffering, loss of learning capacity, substitute services that were needed, and, loss of consortium.
We know from our past clients’ comments they benefit from having the advantage of 81 years of legal experience; the inside knowledge to anticipate insurance company maneuvers; the insider knowledge of police investigation procedures; and most importantly caring professional attorneys who have a personal relationship with each client. We have resolved thousands of cases over the years, either through negotiation, arbitration, mediation, or resulting in compensation to our clients’ appropriate level of injury involved. What is vital to us is client satisfaction.
We are pleased to report research shows the majority of our new clients are referred to us by satisfied existing or past clients. We think that shows just how hard each attorney and their staff work to gain the highest level of confidence of every client. The Morris James Personal Injury Group has the resources necessary to effectively litigate significant injury/death cases. We know based on experience where to find and hire the most respected expert witnesses necessary to prove our case in court.
