    This attorney, recommended a strategy against my ex-wife that ended up costing me ungodly amounts of money and was overturned on appeal. What a waste of money! It seems James is more concerned about billing fees and whipping up emotions, than about actually finding a well-reasoned, legally supportable strategy. Definitely do not recommend this lawyer.

    James M. Cordes’s response: “Although the details provided do not give me enough information to specifically respond to your case (I am unaware of any case that I have taken to trial that was overturned by the Court of Appeals), it is unfortunate that you had such a negative experience. That being said, I counsel every client from the beginning that settlement is the preferable approach, and my reputation is one of limiting emotions rather than inciting them.”
  • Hard working valuable asset!

    James worked on my case, partnered with Laura. He is very professional and right to business. Opposing council for my case was very abrasive even toward James who was merely representing me. He brushed it right off and stayed focused on my case. He gave me the straight scoop whether I was going to like it or not. James is part of the Shapiro Law Firm and he is one of the latest additions to the team of outstanding people there. I highly recommend James; he is a solid asset in anyone's corner.

    Being a client in a divorce case is never a fun experience. However, James made the experience as painless as possible. He was always willing to discuss my case with me, even when it was the second or third time we discussed something. The other important thing to note was that I was happy with the how the case ended. I would recommend James to anyone.
