Jim Dodrill advised me on an employment agreement and a private placement investment I made in an early stage company. Jim's competent counsel helped me secure a fair agreement, and importantly, his knowledge and foresight allowed me to avoid and negotiate to change language that would have been harmful to my position. I highly recommend Jim's services.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jim over the last six years. He has advised me on at least six different companies. I have always found Jim to be professional, knowledgeable and responsive. His corporate and securities knowledge combined with practical business sense has assisted us in getting deals funded and filings completed expeditiously. Jim has never missed a deadline and has always been accomodating to get the job done when required. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim's services.

If you have the project that has the scalability, growth opportunity, and equities need and Jim has time in his schedule to take you on as a client - then don't hesitate and do it. I have had outside advisors and board members, as well as investors, comment on the thoroughness of his work. A very powerful member of our team.

Mr. Dodrill has been a very key ingredient to the ability for my company to not only get sound legal advice but legal advice that incorprates the needs of the bsuiness to function profitably and efficiently. Mr. Dodrill brings an excellent balance of business acumen with a strong securities experience to offer a depth of legal advisement well suited to bsuiness large or small. Our operations involved international customers and investors as well as complicated securities and Mr. Dodrill was well suted to handle all of the above.

James has been our SEC attorney since 2003. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the regulations, helpful when we had to deal with the SEC and responsive when we needed timely answers to questions. He has proactively contacted the SEC and NASD to help expedite matters that had been stalled by the government workers.
I also feel that he is actually concerned with success of our company and is willing to make unsolicited recommendations if he believes that it is in our best interest. I personally know and have worked with many attorneys, and rate him amount the top ones that I know. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending James to other businesses or individuals.

I am an attorney who left the active practice of law in a large law firm and spent nearly a decade working with various major law firms in NY, LA, Chicago, DC and abroad in acquiring partners, practice groups and other law firms. Over the last decade I have worked as a technology entrepreneur incubating two companies with patent-protected technologies that were recipients of Federal grants and which have to navigate in extremely complex business environments. As a result, I have a unique perspective on Jim's capabilities as a fellow legal practitioner, consultant to the legal industry and business person who retains outside counsel for various tasks.
Over the last several years I have worked with Jim in managing our companies' corporate and securities matters. Jim brings a unique set of qualities that every business leader seeks and hopefully finds in their counsel: a strong command of their area of legal expertise, trusted business advice, and behavior consistent with that of a partner in the decision making process that business executives like myself need to make on a daily basis. Not only has Jim demonstrated an understanding of our businesses and their unique technologies which in one instance involves radio frequency physics, computer science, electrical engineering and in another optical chemistry, but he has demonstrated a consistently calm manner in reassuring me and others on our executive team and fellow board members of the decisions we need to make in rough waters we often navigate as early stage companies. Jim's intellect helps assure we stay focused and address the tasks that need to be made priorities. He is also quite fair in his billing practices and, above all else, highly ethical and deserving of kudos for his excellence at his craft.
