James A. Walcheske represented me in a case where I was fired basically from a positiion for being arrested in a misdemeanure situation a year before. The company 'let me go' because they said that I did not meet their standards due to the arrest. This violated state law. I let this go initially...life isn't always fair, but the company later sent me a check and this caused me to think...why? Furthermore, it rekindled something I was going to let pass. I went to James because he was willing work with me on a contingency bases. He said the company violated state law... After a period that lasted ten months, we settled for $20,000, thanks to the negotiating skill James displayed in my behalf throughout the time period. I found James to be fair and knowledgeable and his people skills were excellent. He always seemed to care about how the I felt...he advised me to ride things out a bit longer as he felt the company should of paid out more, but he respected my wishes to move on. I liked James as a human being, and I found him to be a pleasant, timely attorney. I would recommend him to anyone.

James is polite, friendly, and always returns my phone calls or emails in a timely manner. He listens/responds to what I have to say (questions and concerns) involving my case, AND DIRECTS OR RE-DIRECTS ME instead of telling me what I SHOULD do or say. Most lawyers act like they are doing you a "favor" by representing you - even though you are the one paying for their time but I believe that James actually cares about me and my case. HE HAS DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB and I am glad I chose to work with him and his firm...I was a military veteran and a simple college student with little to no funds when I came to see him about the matter, so he took a little risk, and felt as passionate about my case as I did! I have worked with a lot of lawyers on many different levels (military and civilian) and it was nice to have him in my corner in this discrimination case. He has also been instrumental in a decision I have made to study law...I will become a paralegal first and see where it takes me
