The Higgins Firm is second to none! I highly recommend anyone that needs any sort of assistance reach out to them! They will see that you, their client, are not... only well represented, but that you are completely satisfied from start to finish. Very trustworthy, reliable, and truly care about any and all individuals they work with. With so many options out there, it can be tough to find the right team to go to bat for you, but rest assured that this is the one! See More

There are many law firms around Nashville, however, The Higgins Firm is by far the best. Jim Higgins and his team are very prompt at answering our questions and did a great job guiding us through the grueling legal process.

I highly recommend Attorney Lourdes Palacio from The Higgins Firm... I would call or email and would always get an answer back right away. She always kept me in...form with my status. In addition, she cared for my health and always asked me how was I doing. Best thing of all, she speaks Spanish is very knowledgeable and I have referred other people to her for her expertise and caring. If I should need any legal services in the future, I would, without hesitation, contact Lourdes Palacio and the Higgins Firm. See More

I am coming to the end of a workmen compensation case and was completely frustrated with the inevitable outcome and was searching for answers. I googled, "advoc...ates for injured workers in TN", or something along those lines, and on one of the links I clicked there was a video of a man, Jim Higgins, being interviewed and explaining the changes to workers compensation here in TN and he seemed like he really cared. So I went to his website and left a brief account of my case and didn't expect much. That was Saturday night, SUNDAY morning I received an email from Mr Higgins asking for more information. I explained in greater detail and MONDAY morning I received another email where he shared with me information I was completely unaware of. I've done my research and know my case is basically worthless and really wasn't expecting to even receive a response let alone the time Mr Higgins took. He was honest with me, which I completely appreciate, very knowledgeable, and compassionate. It's rare to find someone that truly cares, and my personal opinion is, Mr Higgins is one of those rare somebody's! See More

I highly recommend the Higgins firm. Carrie and Cassie did an excellent job working on my case. I gave them the information they needed and they did all the leg... work. They were very efficient, diligent, and got the job done. They were caring and compasionate to my feelings and needs. I was kept in touch with and informed of what was going on with my case. My questions were answered in a manner that it was easy to understand. My calls and/or emails were always promptly returned. I couldn't have asked for them to do anything any better. Thank you very much. See More

This piece by The New Yorker about the elderly losing their rights is a must read:
It is crucial to keep in touch with your older family members and friends, to spot signs of neglect and abuse right away. As the author says, "Approximately ten per cent of people older than sixty-five are thought to be victims of “elder abuse”—a construct that has yet to enter public consciousness, as child abuse has—but such cases are seldom prosecuted."
