As a nursing home abuse lawyer, I concentrate my practice on handling claims of nursing home abuse and neglect against nursing home corporations with facilities along the Gulf coast and inland counties. If you have questions about a Florida nursing home or wish to discuss a potential case of abuse and neglect with a local nursing home abuse and neglect lawyer who has evaluated hundreds of claims, please feel free to call me, James Keim, Attorney at Law at (941) 426-7900. I always provide a free consultation and personally handle every case, and you will not be passed off to some middleman or junior level associate. All cases are handled on a contingency fee and cost basis. This means that you pay no fee or costs unless we obtain a settlement, award or verdict.
