    • I recommend James Drummond.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Jim was aggressive and successful in resolving a case of mistaken identity that caused a notification of a warrant being mailed to me. Despite a heavy caseload he immediately went to work and had my situation of mistaken identity resolved with the district attorney's office in less than one workday giving me great peace of mind. If a need arises again for his services or any one I know needs a reference in the Oklahoma City area I have no reservation in recommending him to represent them. Thanks again Mr. Drummond

    • I recommend James Drummond.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Jim is an absolutely astounding attorney.
    He tells it how it is, and doesn't leave you guessing along the way.
    Jim took an extremely stressful situation and made it manageable for me.
    He has an incredible passion for his work, and it shows in his representation.
    He has the respect of his peers as well as the Judges and DA's in Cleveland County (where my legal problems took place).
    I highly recommend hiring him for legal council of any sort.

    I had a conviction of indecent liberties with a child in another state in the 1980s and after five years incarceration, I had lived in two other states before moving to Oklahoma in 2007. I quickly learned I would have to register on the Oklahoma Sex and Violent Registry, although never having to do so in those other states. I questioned if I had needed to register in the first place, as my conviction occurred before the 1989 law requiring anyone moving to Oklahoma with a previous sex offense to register, There had even been an interpretation by police and an assistant district attorney that I did not have to register. But then the Dept. of Corrections' division in charge of the registry made the ruling that I had to register. And so, I followed the guidelines of the registry, which also caused significant cost to change residence, etc. I received a letter from a legal firm offering to assist to lower the tier level of my registration. But I decided that any effort and payment made would be to gain a decision about the registry. Upon an inquiry late in 2008 with a mutual acquaintance, I learned of Jim Drummond. By the time I met him, I learned he already had made some preliminary inquiries and found some similarity in some cases and felt there may be a potential at success. We went to work on the case, and through some contacts of mine with significantly good information on the registry, and his research on the question in mind, and the legal process began. Eventually the case was won to remove me from the registry. Jim kept me appraised of every step of the way. When there were decisions on certain points to be made or information to be presented, he checked with me first. He constantly kept me updated on the process. I liked his calm style. I liked his manner in presenting information. I happen to know quite a bit about law, but yet there is much I do not know and Jim explained our position thoroughly. And that is how it was presented and eventually it was successful.
