  • Cecily Patterson Skarda

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Jim more than 10 years ago when he was opposing counsel on a case I had. Jim was a tough, smart and committed lawyer who represented his client very well. At the same time, he was pleasant to work with, trustworthy and professional. Since that time we have had a few things together and he even served as special judge in a domestic relations case I had in another county. Jim was fair, objective and knowledgeable as a judge. Jim is a great guy and an awesome attorney who is truly committed to serving his clients.
