"There is not enough I can say about this man. He went above and beyond to prove my case and win. I never ever felt like I was bothering Shannon when I would call for updates. She and Jim truly are wonderful human beings. I could never have made it through without either of them. When you go through a negative, life changing experience with an injury it’s good to know there are people like James Dunn out there that will fight the fight. Thank you Jim and Shannon from the bottom of my heart."
