"My name is Jimmy D. Speed and I founded Speed Law Office with a goal to represent individuals and families that have been injured as the result of someone else's negligence. I work tirelessly to ensure that Speed Law Office is associated with aggressive but ethical advocacy. I am committed to doing the right thing at all times. I focus my practice on personal injury cases, exclusively. If you or a loved one have been injured in any type of automobile accident,18 wheeler accident or you have a family member that is the victim of wrongful death, I am here for you and your family. My office is not a high volume practice, which allows me to devote my time and energy to your case. At my office, you will never be a number. When you call, you will either speak with me directly or I will personally return your call within one business day. If you or your family ever need me, I will do everything I can to help. I represent and protect the injured, not the insurance companies or corporations."
