I submit an auto accident to jim adler's attorney's.
I informed the first case worker i met with of the situation in full.

I was involved in a auto pile up where i was a passenger in the fourth car.
The driver of the vehicle i was in did not have a tx drivers license and was not covered under the liability
Insurance on the vehicle.

I contacted jim adler to see if there was anyway that i would be able to recover lost wages and compensation for my doctors bills. At that time the attorney said "yes" you were just a passenger and we will go as far as we can to make sure you are taken care of.

The first day i met with the case worker they told me that i would need to begin treatment at a local chiroprator to make sure my case goes smoothly. I infact did this for 1 week. At that time i contacted jim adler after being sent a letter telling me if i was at fault for the auto accident then i would have to pay for any treatment being provided by local chiropractors. When i contacted the firm after recieving the letter i attempted to ask the case worker questions about the accident. He insured me that there was for sure a settlement that may be available for me in my favor. "regardless of the fact that the driver was uninsured and had no valid drivers license. " jim adlers associates told me to continue therapy at the chiropractor they directed me to.

The chiropractor told me that i would have 3 weeks of therapy to complete. On the 2nd to the last day of therapy i got a call from jim adlers associates telling me that the driver of the vehicle i was in was not covered under the insurance and had no drivers license, therefore the insurance will not settle in my favor and my doctors bills would not be covered.

* at that point i did infact understand that the attorney jim adler was in some way getting some kind of commission off of the treatment that so desperately said i would need to complete to pursue any claim with the insurance.
*the office was very rude and told me that they would be closing the claim on the very next day, " the final day of therapy assigned by the chiropractor they sent me to. "

Jim adler and his associates never contacted any of the insurance companies involved in the auto accident "only the insurance from the car that i was in". When i first met with the first case worker i specifically asked him to go through that insurance last if they must.

My advise to anyone would be to never do business with jim adler and his associates. They will mislead you to thinking you will be ok and they will take care of everything.

"after the whole ordeal with jim adler was over and i hung up the phone with one of his associates, i contacted the insurance claims adjusters to handle the situation myself.
At that time they confirmed that jim adler nor his associates contacted them in refrence to any of my claims. "

*** the icing on the cake****
The police report states that "the driver in vehicle 1" admits to slamming on his brakes to avoid hitting an unknown car and causing this major pile up on the highway" i was in vehicle 4 and was the only person out of all the vehicles involved forced to be taken away by ambulance by the police due to severe injuries.

Thanks for your comment. I was searching for an attorney in Houston, Tx and I had thought about using Jim Adler. Thanks to your comment, I will not use them. Your comment mean so much to people who need attorneys to get justice for them and so many attorneys only work to get justice/money for themselves. Thanks again.

He is a joke and doesnt even really practice law. Ask him when was the last time he went to trial or even took a deposition. The answer will shock you.

No you have learned the true nature of a personal injury attorney. They have one motive and one motive only...MONEY. Yes, they do have "backroom" deals with their medical providers to take a cut since the doctors overbill anyways. This should be of no surprise to any level-headed person...personal injury attorneys are of a different breed and have a completely different MO than other attorneys.

We just had a case and used Jim Adler's office and yes they were misleading. When it came to the settlement the payoff was considerably less than what was originally discussed. I would advise when talking to an attorney to always record the conversation. They definitely do not look out for the best interest of their client.

I was spending the night at a La Quinta motel in Angleton, Texas the next morning I toOK my shower my wife had her shower we were getting ready to visit my granddaughter in the hospital. I was standing by my wife in the bathroom as she was putting on her makeup I reached and turned the faucet on in the sink and the whole sink fell out of the counter top hit the floor and brOKe into pieces and even the waste line plumbing brOKe and fell. I automatically reached for my wife and she had already fell over the commode missing her I fell backwards and hit the back of my neck on the bath tub edge. I called the front desk and they said OK leave and we will clean it up. No problem but about a week later I started to have severe pains in my neck and back and was taking over the counter drugs like aleve to stop the pain it got worse. Here is where the fun began I contacted Jim Adler he sent me to a chiropractor. The chiropractor said you need to go to a Orthopedic Doctor as I do not really want to treat this. He made this referral to Adler's office and Adler refused and said go n with the treatments. They only made matters worse, more pain, and the chiropractor again requested an MRI to make sure he was not hurting me more than I was. Adler refused but did send me to another real Doctor, but just an MD, and he immediately said I want nothing to do with this you need an MRI and I am going to prescribe one. Well I never got one and was told to go back to the Chiropractor. After trying to live with this I let min twist my back and neck and I could barely walk out of his office but did not complain to him just left and never went back. Adler's agent, a person who spOKe very brOKen English and very hard to understand, called and said she would like to schedule a 3 way conversation with La Quinta's lawyer so I agreed and made the statement that I was not in this for money just wanted my back and neck fixed. Two days later this same non English speaking something called and informed me they no longer represented me and I was to pay all the medical bills I had occurred as they no longer represented me. I hired another attorney went to a Orthopedic found back and neck in very bad shape but I cannot reveal publicly what all I can say is I am having to have surgery on my back and then later on my neck. My Orthopedic Dr, could not believe the chiropractor twisted on my back and neck and I am very pissed at Adler and intend to fill a grievance against him for referring me to this person who really did not want to do his adjustments but money talks and I paid the price so am going to file malpractice against him as he should not have treated me. I now have two surgeries maybe 3 and will probably never get back 100%. I would NEVER recommend this thing as your lawyer.

I agree with all of you. Jim Adler is a joke. they never return your calls and never keep you in the loop about what's going on with your case. I would not recommend Jim Adler to no one.

Paul Rushing you are a joke. You should never talk to the lawyer of the company you are suing and say you are not in it for the money which you were lying.

I totally agree with all the comments about Jim Adler. They never return calls or keep you informed. The case workers lie and say they made contact with you and you always receive letters that tell you to keep in touch. When you call the case workers and leave a message they never respond. I am in no way close to a settlement and my accident occurred at the beginning of 2013 and it will be next year before any settlement occurs. It want be what you expected because the lawyers have hidden fees. Your better off dealing with the insurance company directly when it comes to using Jim Adler!!! When you research attorney's make sure that they participate in program like Oasis Legal Finance especially if you are going to be out of work and need money to pay your bills now. Adler does not participate in company's like Oasis. These companies get you money before your case is settled. Money needed to continue living and paying bills. If you can't work due to an accident you will be out on the street with Adler.

Dear, Jim Adler,

I have recently tried to contact you law office about applying for S.S. Disability. I guess either you are to busy or no one at your office wants to work, I mailed a packet on last Tuesday the 21st from Fort Worth, Texas. I know it doesn't take a week for the mail to run, so I called back & spoke w/ Minelba @ ext. 1507 & she stated that I was to receive a new package by e-mail this date. but here it is 2:00p & nothing on my e-mail yet @ bbqbob1956 @ yahoo.com I guess I need to find another lawyer who wants my money, Robert Hammett 817-294-5210

Jim Adler is an amazing man. How do I know this? He is not afraid to get on top of an 18-wheeler, which is very dangerous, and to shout out to the world to CALL HIM RIGHT NOW. Because he wants to help you. He cares about the little man/woman. If you have been injured, he is the man for you. I was in an accident, injured my right big toe, and Mr. Adler got me a $257, 417.66 cent check from the insurance company! None of those tiny checks for me! You have seen the size of those tiny checks in the commercials, right? Well, if you want a tiny check, go to someone else when you are injured. If you want a much deserved windfall, call JIM ADLER, THE TEXAS HAMMER!!! They do not call him the Hammer for nothing. He hammered and got me a lot of money for my injured toe! Stop berating him. Or call Brian Loncar, the Strong Arm - hahahahahahaha. Yeah, an arm strong enough to take all your money. LONG LIVE JIM ADLER!!!

Attorney Jim Adler - Missleading
Jim Adler
United States

I consulted with Jim Adler, To help me with my case and after 2 year they asked me to just settle so that doctor etc would stop harassing me, so I agreed. Once I agreed, I was screwed, they took 33% off the top off the settlement. The Adler office asked the Doctors, Hospitals even Medicare the take huge cuts 50-75% or more. The offered me .9752% But they are not welling to reduce their portion by even .004% A HUGE $450 DOLLARS. DO NOT EVEN TRUST THE THEIFES.

Be very careful of Jim Adler & Assoc, I wish I had looked him up online before meeting. First of all, he is all over the Internet for scamming. Even if he gets you no fair compensation, the places he referred you to will bill you and he gets a piece of that for the referral. They are scam artist only in it for the money.

Stay far away from this law firm. I had very little contact with them for my disability case. I was made to feel I was bothering them when I had questions about my case. I had contact with my attorney a total of two times before my hearing. One was for about 20 mins by phone couple of weeks before my hearing with ALJ The second time was about 10 mins before my hearing. My attorney had very little to say in the hearing. She did not have my best interest in mind for sure. Find yourself a real attorney, and dont bother with this low budget firm.

Dont waste your time with this fake lieawyer. I was trying to help a friend get his social security benefits. He has a really bad reading disability.
The lady i spoke to told me that there are jobs that a person can get that dont require reading. I told her i dont know of any job like that. She said
the social security office would know to call them. Anyway she called back to tell him she could not help him . What you advertising for if you
cant help people. I thought you were the hammer . What kind of lawyer service starts off by suggesting that they cant help you. Seems like
lawyers only work for do wrong people, who helps the do rights and helpless. I dont know why you have to fight for what you worked for in the
first place, its your money.

@Rrluft I have a case right now with Jim Adlers office. Ive never seen him just his commercials. I have paperwork that states out of my settlement I would only receive $500, I also have a recorded phone call from him. On August 17, he called me to tell me that I only have four bills to pay, chiropractor, Live well MD, Emergency room visit, and last but not least, $7, 023.00 for the hospital building. I dont know if this is there electric bill or he is telling me this because he want to keep that money him self. Four months down the road I made the decision to except the check and pay all the bills from my settlement, all except for the chiropractor, he is to pay this one for me. When I told R. Q. of my decision he changed all the payments up. He then said that out of the hospital building amount, which was $7, 023, he would take out 33 and a third percent. Every one on here is talking about there problems. I need a solution. I will have to go to the state bar jurisdiction and see if this is breach of contract. Any more solutions please let me know...123nikkinikki123@gmail
