James Abrams was knowledgable, supportive, prompt, reliable, and caring. He is quick to respond, makes himself available to your needs and provided me with the knowledge that I needed for emotional support through out the legal process. His presence makes you feel secure in the worst of situations. I'm so thankful I had such an great person and respectable attorney to represent me.
Jim worked hard to successfully settle a mediation with an unscrupulous employer. He was knowledgeable, supportive, combative when necessary, and great to work with. I hope I will never have to go through the pain and agony that was created by a company that didn't believe in paying loyal employees for their hard work. Jim went out on a limb for me, and I will be forever grateful for his services. With this burden removed, I can move forward with the important things in my life.
I sought out Mr. Abrams when I was laid off from a software company while on FMLA leave. I interviewed several attorneys and found Mr. Abrams to be by far the optimal choice, as so many of the others didn’t seem like they could be competent if the case went to trial. I fully trust Mr. Abrams based upon his professionalism and expertise and respect him for being empathetic, relatable, and amiable. I highly endorse Mr. Abrams and encourage anyone who has been discriminated against to fight for their rights and ensure that they are well represented by a stellar lawyer like Mr. Abrams.
Jim provided outstanding counsel, guidance and support when I was terminated. He clearly has extensive expertise in employment law and provided the right level of advice to help me fight for my rights and just the right amount of support for the situation. He was there for me every step of the way, but at the same time I felt he was very aware that I needed to be careful with how much I was spending for legal advice.
I recently contacted Jim Abrams for advice regarding a housing and sexual harassment issue. He was very responsive and answered all of my questions. He spent a lot of time giving me advice and leading me to the right direction for my needs. I would recommend him to anyone!
Mr Abrams is very skillful in his face to face encounters, letting his adversaies, and everyone else, know that he is willing to work with everyone toward an amicable resolution. He is well prepared and able to adapt and think on his feet when thrown a curve. I have recommended him to others, and I always tell people that he is, and will be, the smartest person in the room, and he is not condescending toward anyone. His experience and knowledge are both extensive and invaluable.
He is compassionate and is genuinely concerned for the well-being of his client. Each time I have spoken with him, at the end of the conversation,I felt better about the situation I was in, because of his reassurance, and confidence.
He is well spoken and easy to converse with. In fact, it is a pleasure to talk with him about topics outside of the professional arena.
I recommend him not only as a top drawer attorney. He is an outstanding individual with impeccable integrity and solid down to earth values
A dispute with a federal agency led me to Jim, but not before sifting through several attorneys who took a cursory look at my case and offered lukewarm confidence in reaching resolution. Jim’s vigorous approach and amazing degree of intellect in developing on-point legal theories saw quick results with extremely favorable terms. The agency rapidly retreated as Jim’s legal knowledge handily trumped theirs. His tenacity and unyielding efforts greatly benefited me. Many are ordinary; Jim is extraordinary.
I love this guy! Straight shooter and goes to bat for you! He took a fee cut to get my case settled!
I am so thankful that the name Jim Abrams appeared in my attorney search. Jim was able to help ease my mind and assure me that I was not in the wrong of my situation. He understood my situation and was able to give me a voice! If I am ever in need of an attorney Jim is who I will call.
I had the pleasure of partnering with Mr. Abrams on a workplace harassment claim against a global Fortune 500 organization. During our interactions over several months, Mr. Abrams demonstrated a tremendous passion for professionalism, attention to detail, and follow-up. He has a strong skill set in crafting and facilitating legal arguments that clearly present the facts, as well as, the wrongful act committed by the company. In a legal system stacked enormously in favor of large organizations, it's imperative to have an advocate who can initiate the process and the keep the facts in order. Mr. Abrams is a tremendous attorney, and worth a call (if you have a difficult situation to deal with).
