  • Michael Anthony DelSignore

    I have seen James many times in court; He is very well respected by judges throughout the state. I watched an OUI trial of his and he did an excellent job crossing examining the police officer, which resulted in a not guilty verdict. He fights hard for his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone charged with OUI.
