Prior to taking on my case, Attorney Amschler was committed to doing thorough research into the matter, the local statutes and practices of the court. Attorney Amschler presented me with practical information, which was well articulated giving me the confidence that he knew what he was doing and that had a clear method for developing a winning strategy.
After retaining Attorney Amschler. He spent a great deal of time reviewing the evidence for the case and writing a bulletproof complaint. There was no doubt in my mind that after judicial review of the pleadings the court recognized the merits of the case and swiftly moved the action forward because of real preparedness.

I was instantly at ease when talking to Mr. Jim Amschler. I believed I was being wrongfully sued by a large debt collection firm that purchased an outstanding balance from a company that refused to address my dispute - over 4 years ago. His knowledge and understanding of my case, in a brief amount of time, gave me peace of mind and confidence that I would have a fair day in Court. Mr Amschler is an excellent listener and followed up with me by email to insure that I provided the information he required. I felt calm, organized, and never worried. It was clear what I needed to do and I felt certain that he was focused and available to resolve my case expeditiously.
