    My Arizona client was facing the very real prospect of being defaulted in a Texas action. Jim Sharon stepped in, quickly filed an answer, and was able to negotiate a satisfactory settlement under very difficult circumstances. Jim Sharon effectively managed tough demands, both from our client, and from the opposing party and its counsel, to resolve the dispute. His professionalism was exemplary and I highly recommend him.
