James G. Onder and his team at OnderLaw, LLC view personal injury law a little differently. Ask Jim about his most important accomplishments in his three decades of practicing law and he won’t tell you about the more than $4 billion he’s won for clients, or the impressive list of awards and honors he’s earned. He’ll talk instead about how he and his clients have worked together to force miniblind manufacturers to stop making products that result in children’s deaths; how he’s worked hard to get cancer-causing talcum powder off of store shelves; how he has helped victims of horrific accidents to start living their lives again; and how he has worked hand-in-hand with hard-working people to hold corporations and insurance companies accountable.
Whether he’s fighting for change against dangerous pharmaceutical products, defective medical devices, or those whose negligence causes serious injuries, Jim doesn’t just take on cases; he takes on causes. He has proudly developed a nationwide, client-driven law firm focused on serving people in their times of need.
