    • I recommend James Blanton.

    James was an excellent lawyer to work with. He was very reasonable on price, especially considering how much work he put in to the case. James always kept me well informed on everything that was going on with the case. He was very easy to get a hold of and was very good at returning phone calls in a timely manner. James would discuss the case without bugging you for a payment first. I never once got a phone call from James asking for a payment even when I was late at times. Last but not least, the case turned out very well with me learning a big lesson without all of the fines and losing my license. None of this would have been possible without all of the hard work James put in. I would definitely recommend using James as your lawyer. If you want the best results, you must work with the best lawyer.

    James was amazing from the initial consultation which was free to the conclusion. He had a plan from day 1 and stuck to his word. Any concerns I had (There were many) were addressed quickly via email along the difficult couple weeks of just waiting. I never expected to need a lawyer, but when I unfortunately found myself in need I found this site and read the previous reviews about James. They were 100% accurate. Caring, Professional, Knowledgeable and Available. I will personally say I felt all of these and in the end, after facing what could have been a very bad situation, I am very glad I hired James. The cost was extremely affordable and worth every penny. I sat there, watched James work and actually felt that he did an incredible amount of work for the affordable rate

    James is an excellent choice as a lawyer he handled my case and got my charges dismissed. He is very professional and down to earth. He kept me informed about my case and he is very knowledgeable at his profession. I do not believe i could have had a better lawyer for my case.

    • I recommend James Blanton.

    Mr. James Blanton is a straight-forward, easy-to-talk to, knowledgeable attorney that I would highly recommend to my family, friends and others. He provided an extremely high level of service, professionalism, and responsiveness to me on a recent DUI case. His counsel was spot on and he made himself readily available through this very difficult process. It was very clear watching him in court over the past few months that he has the respect and friendly exchanges from the ADAs, various officers and judges. Little things like taking my initial call and accepting the case over the phone when I did not have a license to easily get to his office, coordinating with the bailiffs regarding my medical needs, and notifying my wife of sentencing in a timely manner were greatly appreciated.

    • I recommend James Blanton.

    Attorney James Blanton just defended me in a case that was of great concern and worry to me, so much so that I put of handling it for many years. James always got back to me and was confident in the outcome of my case even when I was concerned. Mr. Blanton got my case handled in an extremely satisfactory outcome to me, I could not be more happy with his work and I felt that his services were fairly priced and affordable on top of everything else. He is highly recommended by me!

    Mr. Blanton helped my husband through a tough jam. He even took the time to follow up even after the situation had to go ina different direction. He always let us know what was going on in every step.
    What an awesome guy.

    • I recommend James Blanton.

    I was in the area on vacation from out of state and a series of unfortunate circumstances led to a bit of trouble. My court date was scheduled for a month from now, but I am happily writing this review today with the excellent news that Mr. Blanton got my case dismissed ALREADY!!

    After calling around to several local attorneys, I hired Mr. Blanton at the end of the first phone consultation - he knew the officer involved by name, he knew the prosecutor and what would work with her, and he knew the officer's next court date when he could speak with both of them about my case with the hope of getting it dismissed. Not only that, he ran into the officer in court BEFORE the day he planned to do so, and discussed my case with him then, too.

    Before talking to Mr. Blanton, I was stressed and felt helpless because of what had happened. I didn't know what I was going to do. When we hung up the phone, he emailed me immediately with a bulleted list of things I could do that would help him get the case dismissed. I did all those things, and he did exactly what he promised he would do - his best efforts produced the best possible results for my case.

    With his North Carolina accent and the vocabulary and demeanor that comes with being former military, Mr. Blanton's sincerity, encouragement, and determination wowed me. He represented me with unexpected enthusiasm, and I would strongly recommend him to help in any case, like mine, where some poor decisions led to an out-of-hand situation.

    Mr Blanton was very professional, trustworthy, and kept me updated on my DUI case. He doesn't give you false promises and gives you his honest opinion about how it may go in court. He isn't afraid to truly stand up for the client during trial. Worth the money spent to have him represent me.

    • I recommend James Blanton.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Called involving a double misdemeanor charge, James immediately had a plan of what to do until the case, and how to deal with the charges. Was good having a vet as an attorney, and someone who knew what else I was having to deal with, as a marine. Good representation in court, favorable outcome, at a fair price.

    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    James Blanton was understanding and considerate. He worked with me in, what seemed like, a hopeless situation. Facing a DWI and a hit and run charge, he found an answer.
