    I called Mr. Lyder in a time and need and from the first visit to the end of situation he was available, Knowledgeable, informative, supportive, and candid and compassionate. The outcome was better having had Mr. Lyder/s representation and there was not hidden cost, could not have asked for a better scenario,

    Consulted Attorney

    Responded Quickly

    Mr. Lyder answered my email very quickly and volunteered to meet with me or to review my documentation. I sent him my documents and he responded with his assessment of my case the same day.

    James K. Lyder should be your 1st call if you need an Outstanding Attorney.

    I hired Mr. Lyder in March of 2014 to represent me in a DWI case in the Town of Beekman court. I was sitting in my car at the courthouse on the night of my arraignment with my sister, She did a search for lawyers on her smartphone and Mr. Lyder came up. I called him at 5:45pm on a Thursday and he took my call. He advised me on what to say to the judge at my first appearance and it went well. I met Mr. Lyder the next day at his office and he immeadiately put me at ease so I hired him on the spot. The best thing I can say about Mr. Lyder is that he is a big fan of the truth. He never overpromised on what he could do for me and he delivered on exactly what he said he would do for me. The result was an extremely favorable outcome. Mr. Lyder always did what he said he would do, and always showed up at my court dates fully prepared and ready for court. I couldn't be happier with the service he provided. I intend to make Mr. Lyder my first call if I ever need an attorney again in the future.

    Real Estate Deed Transfer

    Jim helped me transfer the deed to my house in Dutchess County from a joint deed with my former wife to a deed in my name only after my divorce, which wasn't your typical transfer due to the fact that my former wife was not a NY resident any longer. Jim kept me informed through the whole process and completed the deed transfer in a timely manner. Thank you Jim! Wayne Michael

    A labor dispute client.

    I was most impressed with Mr. Lyder. He came highly recommended by another well known labor attorney in the area, and the recommendation was right on. From beginning to end, Jim provided honest, forthright and professional legal advice and service. His investment in my case and his attention to detail were evident throughout the entire process. Every phone call, email, question or concern I posed was met with a timely response and a knowledgeable and thorough reply. He was able to settle my case very favorably and as I result I was able to remain employed by my employer and received backpay for the time I was out. He truly cares about his clients and I would certainly recommend him to anyone in need of professional legal services.

    Outstanding labor lawyer

    Jim Lyder did an outstanding job representing me in my labor dispute. I was getting sick from my work environment. Jim not only negotiated my move to a new work place with the same employer but I also got my salary for the entire year I was out of work. He kept me well informed throughout the entire process. He retuned all of my phone calls and emails very promptly. He was very efficient in the use of his time. He was able to negotiate everything I wanted and needed plus more. He paid close attention to every detail of my case. His billing was also very detailed. Jim's professionalism was exemplary from beginning to end. With great confidence, I strongly recommend Jim Lyder.

    Taking Control and Winning !!!!!!

    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.

    Big Bank Bows

    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
