I recommend James Hickmon
I hired James 1-3 years ago.
James handled my Guardianship matter.
I have previously worked with no lawyers.
My family and I called on Jim 5 years ago to assist us in entering into a Guardianship for our brother, who was deemed medically and legally an Incompetent. Jim's knowledge of the State Guardianship laws, coupled with his excellent preparation of the case, took us through Mediation and final Court hearing with all considerations to the best interests of our brother. Jim continues to assist our family with legal advice and actions needed in light of the controversial events still taking place. My family and I highly recommend Jim for legal assistance with Guardianship proceedings.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
