James was a great help to me during a stressful period of my entire case. I would recommend James Lyder to anyone looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable,patient, professional and most of all a good listener. During the entire case (disability appeal) he kept me informed of everything and took the time to make sure I understood all that was going on,even if he had to repeat himself, as often requested by me. i would not have been able to reach a successful settlement without the help of my attorney, James K.Lyder and his expertise. Thank You ,James, for making a difficult time in my life so much more bearable.

When a mega bank withheld a six-figure distribution of part of my inheritance based upon a misinterpretation of the law, Jim sprung into action. With the applicable statute researched, Jim cut through the bureaucracy reaching the decision maker within the legal department of the bank. His expert conveyance of the law as applicable to the facts resulted in an apology from the bank and immediate payment. Throughout the process, Jim kept me posted of his progress and / or obstacles instilling a high degree of confidence and comfort in his representation

Jim was great to work with on my case. Jim spent a great deal of time researching applicable case law and similar hearings to mine, He also spent time negotiating with the opposing attorney to try and avoid a hearing altogether. Jim was very understanding and compassionate in his meetings with me, yet aggressive in pursuing the case.

I have operated a business since 1987 and worked with many attorneys over those years. I can say James Lyder is at the top of my list. Some of the reasons: He has expertise in many areas. He thoroughly researches issues and presents his findings in easy to understand terms. He responds quickly when the pressure is on. There are other reasons, but what I find unique about Lyder is that he adds to the "black-and-white" law, just the right amount of common sense, and with that, will offer you his position - his recommendation - which i find invaluable when making decisions about the often complex legal issues I face in both the personal and business matters.

Jim has been a consummate professional. He has helped me with real estate matters as a landlord and legal matters in my business. His knowledge of the law is second to none and his ability to convey concepts in terms I can understand is an acquired skill. I often recommend Jim Lyder to my friends, family and my own clients. I will continue to recommend Jim to anyone looking for a competent, professional attorney.

Jim Lyder is an excellent attorney not only because he knows the law he practices but also because he is a good people person. He listened to my story and helped me focus on the important facts and circumstances of my case. I would not have chosen to move forward with my case if I had not met Mr.Lyder and spoken with him about my options. He took the time and answered all of my questions and was honest about his opinions to the possible outcomes of my case. Thank you Jim for all of your

Mr. Lyder was very responsive to my questions and concerns. I also liked is his frank opinion on why a particular issue should or should not be included in any written argument when questioned by me, the client. I rated his knowledge as good simply because the subject matter of my case was not something I would expect a lawyer to deal with every day but Mr. Lyder did research and try to understand the particulars on my behalf.
