Jim was absolutely excellent. He kept us In the loop; prepped us and our witnesses well; was succinct and to the point; had the patience of a saint and provided great legal recommendations for the future.
James Abrams represented me at a second hearing and did another excellent job of prepping me and representing me. It is important to follow Jim's direction when entering the hearing: answer the questions succinctly and then be quiet. Jim is quick on his feet, has a great sense of humor and is a true representative of what it is to be a compassionate human being. Thank you Jim!
Mr. Abrams was most helpful with my case. He was extremely responsive for having such a busy schedule and always made time to answer all of my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Mr. Abrams knowledge and many years of experience made me feel very confident in his representation. I also appreciated his strong ethical approach. What I found most wonderful about Mr. Abrams was his sincerity and genuine concern for me as a client. That is hard to come by! I highly suggest Mr. Abrams. You will not be disappointed.
My employer mistreated me after over 2 decades of service. I am blind. Jim Abrams took me through a grueling 2 day trial. There's no one quite like this attorney. He refused to take any money. I will never forget this man. He is like no one you will ever meet. He exceeded every possible expectation I had and was a blessing in my and my family's life.
Jim Abrams did an excellent job of representing me in a discharge without cause hearing before the CDLE and we are awaiting the decision of the hearing officer. He is well-versed in employment/labor law, is quick on his feet and knows how to utilize the testimony of the opposing side to prove our case. In addition, Jim's great sense of humor while prepping me for the hearing really helped me to relax. Bravo Zulu! Thanks Jim!
Jim Abrams is an amazing lawyer, truly one of a kind. He embodies an incredible combination of legal knowledge, extensive experience, sharp intelligence, integrity and compassion. His legal perspectives are well rounded due to his diverse experience. Just take one look at his resume!
His commitment to his clients is evident in his accessibility and advocacy. Being amidst a legal dispute is stressful and trying to say the least; Jim’s humor and quick wit provide levity in otherwise troublesome times.
He exemplifies what everyone should want in a lawyer; a master of the law and legal theory, advocate, magician and ally. Jim is absolutely brilliant.
Jim is an amazing lawyer! He successfully assisted me with a case 2 years ago and still makes himself available for consultations even today. I recommend him to friends and colleagues without hesitation.
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.
