Attorney James Hill Wilson Jr. Is a champion in the courtroom. An attorney for my mortgage company
and the United States Trustee had both filed objections to my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy payment plan but because of Attorney Wilson's excellent arguments, the judge overruled both objections. Attorney Wilson is an outstanding lawyer.

This was my second time hiring Jim for his services in the past 5 years. I was referred to him by a co-worker and previous client. Both times were very smooth and he was a pleasure to deal with. My most recent ordeal was a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. I had a pending foreclosure scheduled on a Thursday and of course I waited until the last minute by contacting Jim on Monday of that week. We had a 15 minute phone conversation and I was at his office that following Wednesday to sign my paperwork and render payment. Jim filed my bankruptcy on that Thursday morning, stopping the foreclosure sale from taking place. I was also able to add in a substantial amount of non secured debt which would have taken me a lifetime to repay.
Jim showed up to the first meeting of creditors on time with all of the necessary information and paperwork, unlike a few other attorneys who also attended. It was quite amusing seeing some of the other ill-prepared lawyers getting chewed out by the bankruptcy trustee while we waited for my case to be called. Jim was very pithy but thorough and gave me an idea of what to expect at the meeting. My case was filed on February 7, 2013 and here we are at May 23, 2013 and I already have a discharge!
I have a friend of mine who filed with another firm over a year ago and his case still hasn't been discharged! Not to mention he payed double what i paid for the same thing!
I cannot express how much this has saved me financially and how important it is to hire an attorney like Jim! Don't waste your time trying to save money and do it yourself because you won't have the same results. It is so well worth the small amount of money you pay!

We were facing a traumatic experience in that the bank was foreclosing on our home and not sure if bankruptcy was an option on not. We initially met with Mr. Wilson on 2-18-13 and discussed our situation and the options we had considered. Our choice was to be able to do a short sale on our home but with only 5 days until the foreclosure sale, we were not sure it could happen. With his guidance and contact with the bank and their attorney, we were able to complete a short sale by the 21st (just four days) and prevent the foreclosure. I do believe without his representation, we would not have been able to reach our goal. We appreciate his efforts and his personal interest in our case.

If you need an attorney for a custody case, look no further! Jim Wilson is the BEST! He is professional, well prepared and well spoken in the courtroom. He knows what's important to a case and what isn't, he will promise you nothing but deliver everything.

Finding an honest, knowledgeable, professional, integrity driven attorney in todays' microwave society can be most dauntying. Mr. Wilson represented me in a Child Custody/Visitation matter in a state which I did not reside. Most important to me, when choosing an attorney, was to find someone who would give my case its' due diligence in my absence. Mr. Wilson did not only go the extra step for me while attending to my matter, he went the extra mile. He never failed to return my numerous phone calls. He walked me through a very menacing process, while aways keeping me informed every step of the way. He attended to me with patience and empathy, even during times when neither were deserved. He never promised me anything, but throughout the process, he proved himself to be an honest straight shooting attorney who had my best interest at heart. He always gave me 110%. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Wilson to anyone who finds themselves in need of any attorney, especially if you are out of state and need someone you can trust.

Mr. Wilson was referred to me by another attorney that spoke highly of him. Mr. Wilson respresented me in a custody/visitation/child support case. He walked me through what to expect and advised me every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable, professional and personable. He is fierce in the court room and I always felt confident that I was protected and in good hands. By the way, the conference room in his office is beautiful with a nice professional setting.

Mr. Wilson was very professional,knowledgeable and handled everything expeditiously. I would highly recommend his services. He is thoughtful, sensitive and no nonsense and when I had questions (which were numerous), he answered each in a timely, patient manner. He made what was a painful matter, slightly less painful. You can trust Mr. Wilson with your affairs.

I was out-matched with overwhelming aggressions from creditors with experience and tatics. I was without court and laws expierence. Mr. Wilson assessed my critical needs and forged a path to economic survivial. I'm here today.... and would not be if Mr Wilson had not taken professional exemplory actions.

I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend James Wilson as a family attorney. Mr. Wilson handled my divorce from start to finish in a highly professional and effective manner, while providing personal service and constant updates and guidance. He was always available whenever I requested information, and kept me posted every step of the process. Mr. Wilson gave me timely reports on the progess of my divorce and helped me get the best deal possible under the circumstances. He enabled me to get the time I needed to get myself back on track, I was able to keep my house, and he provided an effective buffer between me and my ex-wife's lawyer. I felt he was standing with me from the day I retained his services until the divorce was final, and even then gave me helpful legal counsel as things were finalized. This is the attorney you want to represent you for any kind of family legal issue.
