Since being called to the Alberta Bar in 1972, James A. Butlin has amassed an abundant knowledge of the law and has gained extensive experience in litigation, personal injury cases, and trial proceedings. These assets allow him to seek the maximum settlement for clients entitled to damages related to a personal injury case.
