James was very knowledgeable and made me feel confident in his skills and my case. He was able to turn the "worse case" scenario into the "best case" scenario and dramatically had my charges reduced. He understood the personal turmoil of going through a DUI case and was patient with questions and explained everything thoroughly so I felt reassured and comfortable throughout my entire case.
I had to file an order of protection against my former roommate and Jim's knowledge and guidance was essential in winning the order and returning peace to my life. He knows legal procedures and laws very well and it was impressive to watch him in court. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone who needed a lawyer and if I ever need legal guidance again in the future I will definitely contact him.
When facing difficult decisions that have life altering consequences the best decision I made retaining Jim Simpson of Thompson & Volquardsen Law Firm. There are not enough words to describe my satisfaction and gratefulness to such an first-rate attorney and genuinely good person. Jim Simpson is a “straight shooter!” He is both honest and direct when giving you accurate scenarios regarding your specific case. He handles himself with the utmost professionalism, integrity and honesty. I could not be happier that I chose him to represent me during an extremely tumultuous time in my life. Although he is humble about his connections with in the Vehicular Prosecution department I believe it may have helped to have my DUI case dismissed along with some unusual extenuating circumstances.
THANK YOU JIM- I will recommend you to everyone I know!
My Spouse was looking at a few years in jail for multiple DUI's. We met with Jim Simpson to review what his previous lawyer wanted for the plea. This meant my husband would have to shut down his family business he runs if he took the plea and we would lose everything. Jim Simpson assured us that he could get a plea that would work in our situation and he delivered on that promise!! After the sentencing he has also been there for questions, helping with motions to reduce fines, jail time and also helping with probation options. He is the guy you want on your side!!
After all was said and done, I would not recommend James Simpson for a DUI violation. Jim is very knowledgeable which he reviews often when talking to you, however when in came to my actual case I felt I was just an open file. I had no input with my plea, I have a difficult work schedule which I made sure Jim was aware of, it was not worked out with my plea, so I personally had to go back to court and work out my options with the judge. His office was very helpful - I would rate them Excellent!
Was arrested for a DUI and all circumstances surrounding the incident did not support a DUI charge. James worked tirelessly proving the the arrest was fraudulent and got all charges dismissed. Would recommend him to anyone in need of representation. Thanks again.
MR. Simpson did a phenomenal job handling my OUI case. He was very attentive, kept up on communication and never stopped fighting for me. He was able to reach a plea agreement that saved me thousands of dollars, jail time and most importantly my job. I am truly grateful and satisfied with the work he has done for me.
Jim did an outstanding job of helping me through a very difficult time. His legal expertise, attention to detail and communication were key to exceeding my expectations. I talked to several Attorneys before chosing Jim. He was able to answer my questions, always took my calls and I never felt rushed or as if my case was not important to him. Even during the first phone call, Jim's polite and professional manner put me more at ease. I felt good about hiring Jim initially and even better now that he has demonstrated his skills and compassion. If you are looking for an effective, competent and true professional, Jim is your Attorney! Thank you very much Jim for making a positive difference in my life.
A few years ago I hired James Simpson for my DUI case and was very impressed! James was very knowledgeable and kept me involved and informed. He was always available and open to answer any and all of my questions. James saw to it that I fairly represented. I will always refer those in nred of legal help to this firm!
Having recently moved to the Phoenix area (charged with a DUI within 5 days of arrival), I consulted with various attorneys before meeting Jim. From the beginning Jim was very straight-forward about drawbacks and possibilities without sugar-coating potential problems. What impressed me the most from the start was Jim's concern about me as a fellow human being, and not just another client. His thoughtful effort in making sure I always understood how we were doing, and also that I felt OK about the situation and the potential outcomes made a world of difference to me. Being my case somewhat difficult, and having come out with much less than the minimum penalty for these charges, I'd highly recommend Jim as the attorney to hire if you ever see yourself in such a dire situation.
