"... Thanks JK for sharing this with us. As you can see we are all hungry for this level of detail. Few of us do what you did because this is awesome advocacy.
I remember many conversations with insurance defense attorneys over the years talking about Jim. You know what I mean. We ask them who is really good? He scares them. At my best I never scared them. Actually that goes outside of law. Like most of us they might think "Oh my God, this one won't quit".
But Jim Krueger scares them. I am not sure if anyone has what Jim has although every HIAJ member is awesome. One story was about JK doing some very unpredictable thing before trial in a case. The defense atty said that the adjuster and in-house were really upset and confused. No one ever did something like that and it didn't fit into any theory of the case. The case settled.
I have said this before on the Forum but NEVER get on a panel at CLE where JK is the moderator. It is the worst nightmare you've had in law school. And he can swim and is trim!!
Way to go BIG JIM! Or is it BIG "BAD" JIM?"
