I am a current client of Fox Legal Group as of this date. I believe I have had nothing but trouble with communications with this law firm. I received what I consider bad instructions from the paralegal. I spent three weeks filling out paper work that should have been done in one day. My attorney requested an extension of 60 days for a court date. That's all I knew. I had no Idea when my court date was. I just thought they were still working on the court date negotiations. I find out in the late afternoon, that the court date never changed. After that court appearance, I received an email from my attorney that I didn't understand. At first, I was satisfied until someone said what happened. I couldn't tell them. I didn't really know. I feel my attorney didn't respect me enough, as a client to call me and take five minutes to explain what happened and why it happened. I am looking for another attorney. I have had divorce attorney's in the past and I can honestly say that I have not seen any spectacular lawyering. In my opinion, my ex's attorneys are doing her great. They were able to get into court within a couple of days. I have asked my attorney to ask for an adjustment to spousal support. I have no idea if that issue was brought in front of the court. I have evidence that I believe proves my ex is not being truthful to the court. The ex refuses to cooperate and I feel my attorneys are not interested who I am. I am trying to go somewhere else. I don't like doing the majority of my business on the email circuit. This is still not what I expect. I expect my desires be represented to the court, or someone explain to me why they can't. I am not receiving neither to my satisfaction.

Jim worked with me in my divorce over the summer - I had a wife that felt pastures were greener on the other side of the fence - but more alarming was the fact that I had a teenage son that I did not want to lose custody of. Jim worked with me, help me understand the procedures I was about to go through and took away a huge amount of angst form the totally stressful legal process. He was there and available form cradle to grave! I felt I had a friend in my corner and today, me AND my son live together, I have custody, no alimony and the divorce is all but a blip on my life radar!
My ex husband was in the military. He was difficult to deal with and was not willing to give me a divorce. I hired Jim because he is former military and knows how and who to talk to. Not only did I get my divorce but he was very supportive and always there when I needed him. He was more than my attorney, he was a friend during the tough times. It was not quick, and although I paid him, he also got me attorney's fees by the end of the case.
I had never hired a lawyer before so I did not know what to expect. At first, like most people, I was hit with sticker shock at the attorney fees, but I remember him telling me cheap lawyers aren't good and good lawyers aren't cheap. He was not the most expensive I had talked with, but he was reasonable - and I got what I paid for.
Thank you Mr. Fox!
I came to Mr. Fox because I was in mediation in my divorce case. The mediation lawyer seemed biased towards my wife and I thought I was not getting what I deserved. Mr Fox was excellent in pointing out all the little things she was getting without my knowing about it. With the information he gave me I was able to make sure she did not have any advantages the other lawyer was trying to give her.
Thank God I went to see Mr. Fox. I could not have asked for more precise advisement from a more pleasant attorney. His fees were reasonable and I am glad I spent the money.
Jim is a true professional who takes the time to explain the case in detail with all the options about the case. His dedication and extra personal care relieved my stress while ensuring me he is on my side and will do the right thing. Jim did what he said he was going to do and more, he went way above and beyond the call of duty and exceeded my expectations.
I thank you Mr. Fox for being such a great person, a great lawyer and a now a great friend. Wayne Gretzky is called the Great One in the Hockey world, Jim is the GREAT ONE in Law world.
I can’t say enough for what Jim has done for me. He is super personal and legitimately cares for me as a client and always has my best interest in mind. He’s honest and tells me like it is, but he’s also always been a constant encouragement for me all the way through my divorce and is so perceptive that he knows when to talk to me as my lawyer or more as a friend. He even called me right after my divorce was finalized just to see how I was doing to encourage me knowing how hard it was for me emotionally. He cares enough to get involved to understand every aspect of the situation, remembers every detail and is very methodical on knowing the best way to put together a strong case with his expertise and knowledge of the law. I couldn’t image anyone else I'd rather have helping me through this tough time and supporting me legally.
In my experience, Mr. James Fox does not care about his clients. He did not fight for me in the least. Even with multiple strong exhibits, he was unable to pursue my case with any effectiveness. When it came to actually having to give counsel, he was impatient and seemed to have "better" things to do besides effective communication. The only person I would recommend this attorney to, is to an opposing party.
In 2010 I found myself in a very unfortunate situation which resulted in me being charged with a felony. The incident took place in Palm Springs and I live in North San Diego county so my first hurdle was to find an attorney that had a presence in Riverside county. The first attorney that I called told me that he could not help me but recommended Mr. Fox with high praise. I promptly got in touch with Mr. Fox and he immediately lowered my stress level. Since I had never been arrested before, Mr. Fox walked me through the whole process. He stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process. I will abstain from the horrific details of my arrest but this story has a happy ending. Not only did Mr. Fox make sure that I did not get sentenced but he also convinced the DA to drop the charges without any penalty to me. I would highly recommend Mr. Fox to anyone.
We had no idea what the process was for step-parent adoption. Jim did all of the research and made it effortless. It felt like all we needed to do was show up at the adoption hearing. Needless to say, it was a success! It's great to know that he can handle so many different types of legal issues.
Jim has been a great help during my case. He is trustworthy and handled my case quickly. Jim is a great lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone looking for the services that he provides.
