  • Evan Wier Jones

    Jim is a great lawyer. He zealously represents his clients and is very professional and ethical. I would highly recommend him. He represented a member of my family through a very difficult time and I have referred him to many friends and colleagues over the years.

  • David W. Davenport

    I have referred many cases to Jim and every client has been extremely happy with his services. He is knowledgeable, can try a case if he needs to, is respected by other lawyers who practice in the domestic law area, and resolves cases at a reasonable cost and without unnecessary expense. I highly recommend him.
