Client Comments

"Brown & James, PC, in general, and Russ Watters and Mike Ward, in particular, are the strongest, most knowledgeable, and most reliable attorneys that I encounter anywhere in the country. My practice localities are Omaha, Kansas City, St. Louis, Des Moines, Sioux City, Tallahassee, Pensacola, and Ocala."

senior attorney
Auto Owners Insurance Company

"As house counsel for a major insurance company, I manage bodily injury insurance defense litigation in connection with seven branch offices in four states (MO, NE, IA, and FL) and have had experience in the past with branch offices in a couple of other states as well (MI and OH). Over the past 15 years I have dealt with many different defense firms and attorneys, but I have encountered none that come close to the competence of Brown & James and none that give me the supreme level of confidence that I enjoy knowing that they are handling a matter. Specifically, Mike Ward is the most knowledgeable and most analytical attorney that I have encountered in the past 15 years. He is someone in whom I have the greatest level of confidence in terms of his advice on any particular legal issue."
