• In July 2016 I was involved in a car accident on Indian Head Highway, in Fort Washington, Maryland. After being severely injured in the accident, I sought legal representation from James A. Cleaver of Alexander & Cleaver, P.A. Since my initial visit at the firm, Mr. Cleaver showed an intense focus and dedication to making the process as simple as possible for me and my family.

    When the insurance company attempted to settle my case for an amount not comparable to the injuries I suffered, I knew that Mr. Cleaver would continue
    advocating for me, which he did.  Mr. Cleaver was so knowledgeable and so experienced. When we finally attended the hearing, Mr. Cleaver surpassed all my
    expectations. As a result of his dedication, knowledge and experience we came out victorious, securing a monetary award of over six figures.

    To Mr. Cleaver and the Alexander & Cleaver, P.A. team, thank you so much for advocating for me. Because of you all, I can finally close out a trying time in my life and get back to providing for myself and my family. Thank you!

  • I am writing this concerning the representation from your office and the Attorney you assigned to my case Ms. Raylynn Best-James. First and foremost we received a WIN !!! When you have been a victim in any incident your already are not in a good place, therefore the last thing you need is wrong support from your attorney. Well Ms. Best-James, clearly took the worry and supported me from start to finish, she kept me in the loop of all of the process and did not rush my case. Along with being extremely passionate to my concerns and explaining  the details of my case.But she made me feel like I was part of the team efforts to bring the case home. Then the numerous court proceedings and date changes, now the Big day finally arrived Ms. Best-James was very professional and stayed on task of presenting all the evidence to the court and made me for confidence that she had it and good research to support all evidence . I am so thankful for her and keep up the Great work.
