James Westman represented me in a divorce proceeding where my (now ex) husband had been his classmate. He was responsible for my signing a separation agreement that NO reputable attorney would have had his client sign. It cost me thousands of dollars that I did not have to support a man who was completely capable of supporting himself. A judge read over this agreement and found a "loophole" that got me mostly off the hook - then the judge suggested that I had not been properly represented, and gave me the opportunity to fire Mr. Westman and find more competent counsel, which I promptly did.
What's more, the papers that needed to be filed for the divorce, and for the transfer of property, were never filed. Mr. Westman is less than ethical, and less than competent.
