Jim has represented me for 12 years. Because of the nature of my work (Investigations) I needed the best. He made sure I dotted every I and crossed every T. He dealt with every legal challange that came my way. He is a fighter and always got the job done
Jim kept us well informed of our case at all times. He was very knowledgeable in all aspects of Probate Law. Jim was very comforting to us with his knowledge we were so thankful he was guiding us. Jim is an Attorney that goes the extra mile for his clients whether is be evenings or weekends and so easy to talk to. I have never seen anyone care so much about making a will be upheld and the person who wrote the will, and making they wishes materialize. When you are dealing with probate it is always hard because you have lost someone. Jim was on top of everything but also very compationate, honest, and caring. Jim made thing happen in our case that other attorneys said would never happen. I will recommend Jim for any legal councel. He is an amazing attorney, but also an amazing person. I will Jim for all my legal needs.
James Bendell is a rarity in today's legal profession. He works first and foremost for the honor and glory of God, which means that he seeks at all times to maintain the highest levels of professional integrity by looking at each case and each situation that is presented to him with clear-minded objectivity and fairness. He is always brutally honest about the course of action that one should take. Any client of his who refuses to take his advice at every turn is indeed a fool. Mr. Bendell takes his time to address every question posed to him by a client. One can always count on a timely response that is grounded in one thing: a pursuit of justice in the service of truth. As one who has known Mr. Bendell in both a personal and professional capacity for fifteen years, having worked with him on many important projects and served with him as a panelist at major conference and having been his client, I can attest that James Bendell is not only a credit to the legal profession, he is one of his most exemplary practitioners.
Jim is a fantastic attorney. He answers emails and phone calls, answers your questions completely, and is a bulldog on your behalf. He is a true advocate for his clients, knows his law inside and out, and is a genuine person. He worked hard for me and I was very happy with the outcome.
It has been my privilege to work with Mr. Bendell for more than a decade. I am a writer and deal with controversial subjects hence I often need to seek legal counsel before publication. I have found him to be attentive to my queries, honest in criticism and trustworthy - in short everything a lawyer should be.
Jim is a punctual worker. He does not leave you hanging. He kept me informed and was determined to fight for my case. He was very personable, responsive and sympathetic, yet could be a bulldog in the courtroom if neccessary. He is very knowledgeable and up-to-date in his field, and has the highest ethics.
Mr. Bendell is one of those rare professionals whom one seldom encounters in the legal field. I have had frustrating experiences with other attorneys - they weren't thorough, or weren't entirely honest, or I had to chase after them for weeks to get an answer to a simple question. I have reviewed documents that some of my attorneys had prepared that were misleading or even patently inaccurate. Some lawyers were just downright arrogant and nasty. To my great relief, I have had none of these unfortunate experiences with Mr. Bendell. He possesses outstanding character and integrity. He has a sound knowledge of law and projects a confidence that is contagious. Those characteristics, along with a genuine and pleasant demeanor, result in a rare combination making a truly noteworthy professional. I have trusted him, and will continue to trust him, with my family's legal needs and I would unreservedly recommend his services to all.
