I visited this company once to see a friend. From what I saw and heard, it's not the best company to be involved with.

Sly James?
The Koolaid must be flowing awfully freely at this company.
At least probably the Slyster will be the only board member to dress like a clown.
Frosty!

Sly is an opportunist...

Allegedly took personal injury cases where he got millions from injuries of victims of large companies that committed medical malpractice and other injuries while working at Kenner James law firm.

Sly James would receive settlements and then allegedly conceal the amount of settlements from clients that were 2 party checks made by company and insurance companies.

Victims allegedly would only see the check made from his office account.

Allegedly concealed the true amount due plaintiffs whether cases were settled out of court or by trial.

Allegedly after cashing in sly James moved into a luxury offices spliting from Kenner at the time.
