James Abrams, Ph.D., J.D. represented me in an unemployment appeal case.
Mr. Abrams expertise surpassed my expectations by winning my contested unemployment appeal case. I would highly recommend him to represent anyone in need of excellent representation. He was a pleasure to work with and a very caring and understanding person. I could have never won my case without him.
Thank You Jim for the outcome as they would have eating me alive without your vast knowledge.

I believe that he is a very qualified lawyer and I received the best representation. He understood the stress I was going through and was always available to answer any questions that I had. He is not only knowledgeable but also compassionate. I thank God that I found him.

I retained Jim after other attorneys advised me my case was hopeless. We had a tough, lengthy hearing against my former employer. I honestly did not think we could win. I was extremely nervous about the process until I met with Jim. Not only did he put me at ease the first time we met, but I was amazed how Jim took charge of the proceeding and we ultimately prevailed. His command of the courtroom was obvious and the judge was very deferential to Jim. The employer knew it was in trouble as soon as Jim started talking. It was all over about a quarter of the way into the hearing. The strategy Jim decided upon was followed perfectly.

Mr. Abrams recently represented me in a hearing case. I unreservedly recommend his services.
James Abrams initially comes across as a quiet and considered individual. He listens, absorbs detail and opinions, and then makes convincing recommendations and decisions that get right to the heart of the issues. In James Abrams, I saw all the key qualities I needed in one person. The result shows simply how good he is.
He is diligent, shows great grasp of detail, an ability to pinpoint and address the key issues and was strong in the hearing.
I was extremely impressed with Mr. Abram’s experience and knowledge at every stage. He was prepared, forceful without being aggressive, and diplomatic. I cannot recommend Mr. Abram highly enough.

After an 18 year career I was terminated without notice based on a horrible exaggeration. To make matters worse, my employer fights every unemployment case as a general policy, regardless of the reason for termination. In my case, it meant that my family lost income and health insurance for three months while we waited to go through an appeal process.
I researched and interviewed several Denver area unemployment lawyers and ultimately chose to hire Jim based on his interview. He seemed to have a tremendous wealth of both knowledge and experience. Furthermore, he seemed to be well connected with the people in the industry, but at the same time he had a great desk-side manner. He was able to answer even the simplest and most repetitive questions of mine. He never spoke to me in a demeaning manner, and he was always willing to answer questions from my husband, even if he had already answered them. He welcomed me into his home for a pre-hearing meeting. He answered my telephone calls when I had questions both before and after the hearing. He met me at the hearing in enough advance time to prepare for the hearing again.
The result? We won our appeal in record time. My former employer didn't even show up to the hearing, probably because they were aware that they were up against more than they could handle. The hearing was over in 15 minutes and I received confirmation of our successful ruling in four days. Jim was even willing to give me some advice about how to proceed with regard to my employment search after our successful appeal was completed.
In short, Jim Abrams seems like the perfect Ace in the Hole when you are in need of an unemployment lawyer.

Jim Abrams extended me the courtesy of preparing an appeal for my case. He did this on a Sunday and he did not charge me. He always answered his phone on weekends, which I think is unheard of this day and age. He followed through with what he said he would do and then some. I recommend Jim to anyone that needs someone that Gets the Job Done and is Honest, without taking all your money!!!

Jim was there for me when I needed him for a very trying workplace issue. His knowledge and guidance on the situation (what had happened, what is happening, and what needed to happen) was spot on. Without Jim's expertise, I do not know where I would be today.
