    Fought For Us When No One Else Would

    I manage a bail bonds company in Miami, FL and we were in need of an attorney in Pennsylvania to assist with an issue involving a bond forfeiture. We spoke to other attorneys who would not accept our case due to the complexity of it, however, Mr. Lyons did. Mr. Lyons and his staff kept us informed throughout the process of the case and whenever we had a question or concern, they were quick to respond. Mary, in particular, was always available to us and was very helpful in helping us understand the legal process in Pennsylvania. Mr. Lyons was able to obtain a resolution in our situation that we were very happy with, considering other attorneys that we spoke with said nothing could be done. Should we ever have another case in Pennsylvania or know of anyone who needs the assistance of an attorney there, we would definitely recommend Mr. Lyons.

    BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER EVER.

    My reputation and life literally was hanging in the hands of Mr. Lyons and I must say I have never received such REMARKABLE representation ever in my life .Mr. Lyons was able to untie the web of twisted fabricated LIES that I was being charged with. I would recommend Mr. Lyons to anybody that wants a professional knowledgeable criminal defense attorney with the help of his OUTSTANDING, EFFICIENT and COMPASSIONATE team , Mary and Chris

    Great Lawyer

    James Lyons reduced my son's charges from a felony to a misdemeanor with probation. He got the job done and that is what matters. I can definitely recommend Mr. Lyons. He is not a touchy-feely lawyer and can be brusque in his manner, but he is straight forward and does not sugar coat anything.

    Never contact us when we call

    My son paid the fees in a lump sum. No help or calls when needed. You call him and he does not reply. Is like my son paid and don't have a lawyer. At first we call him once a month but he did not seem to like it so we are calling twice a month but no help, no answers. He has not visited my son not even once at the prison. So sad that they forgot that they are treating human beens and their families need to know as much. Praying that he can be more human and caring.

    Excellent attorney with an outstanding legal team. I highly recommend.

    I hired James Lyons to handle a case for my son who was charged with an F1 felony and several misdemeanors. The DA was persistent with pursuing a 4 to 8 year state prison sentence to the very end. James and his legal team took the time to listen to my son and were very understanding with regards to the circumstances leading up to the charges. James established the legal defense and used his extraordinary level of experience and expertise resulting in a "not guilty" charge for the felony and probation for the remaining charges. We couldn't have asked for better representation. James and his team have the skill, knowledge and experience to do what at times we thought would be impossible. Excellent attorney who will go above and beyond to get the best possible outcome.

    Given back my life

    James Lyons, simply put, is the best lawyer I've ever had the privilege of working with. My case was a difficult one, filled with technicalities, but Mr. Lyons was able to convey my case properly to the court, and work out a deal way below what I could have ever hoped for. His care, hard work, and restless spirit in the face of adversity is matched by no lawyer I have ever met. I will never forget all of the hard work he and his courteous, professional staff did for me. They truly care about the outcome of each and every client.

    In a profession where many times you don't know what you're getting, James Lyons is the safest bet you can make. For yourself, your family, and your future.

    Understand

    I am an attorney myself and I used Jim as a lawyer for my own personal use. Jim has the way to explain things in plain english and not in legal terms. You have a better understanding of the issues and potential results.

    Excellent choice for a lawyer

    We could not have been more pleased with our decision to hire Mr. Lyons. His expert knowledge allowed us to win our case, and his determination to help us was reassuring. Could not have been more satisfied with his representation on our case. Highly recommend him to anyone involved in a criminal matter.
