Firm: Morris James 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 of 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. The Morris James Personal Injury Group attorneys have the knowledge to anticipate an insurance company's next tactic before it occurs, and arm our clients accordingly. Our attorneys, because of their knowledge, take a proactive approach as opposed to reacting defensively to fully protect the rights of 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 throughout each phase of their case. 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.
