    • I recommend James Wasson.

    I RESENTLY RECEIVED A D.U.I. BY CHP FOR A 1.4BAC., I NEEDED A LAWYER, AND I NEEDED ONE QUICK; MY JOB AND LIVELYHOOD DEPENDED ON THE OUTCOME OF THIS DUI CASE. AFTER SEARCHING AND READING REVIEW AFTER REVIEW, I DECIDED MR. WASSON LOOKED LIKE MY BEST BET. MR. WASSON MET WITH ME THE SAME DAY I CONTACTED HIS OFFICE FOR A CONSULTATION, AND AFTER LEAVING HIS OFFICE I FELT CONFIDENT IN HIRING HIM. STILL SCARED, MR WASSON MET WITH ME SEVERAL TIMES --BEFORE MY DMV HEARING, AND PRIOR TO GOING TO COURT, EVERYTIME REASSURING ME WITH THE FACTS, AND HIS PLAN TO FIGHT MY CASE, KEEPING ME INFORMED. ---I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY TO REPORT, MR. WASSON AND CLARK ARE WORTH EVERY CENT!!!! MR. WASSON MANAGED TO BEAT MY DMV HEARING, WHICH ALLOWED ME TO KEEP MY LICENCE UNTIL WE WENT TO COURT, AND THEN ACTUALLY HAD MY D.U.I. COMPLETELY DISMISSED!!!! I AM VERY THANKFUL, THAT I MADE THE "RIGHT CHOICE"--TO CALL MR. WASSON TO HANDLE MY D.U.I. /LEGAL ISSUES. HE'S A SHARK!!!!, AND I MEAN THAT AS AN UTMOST COMPLIMENT. WHEN HIRING A LAWYER, YOU WANT A "SHARK", SOMEONE WHO WILL GO TO BAT FOR YOU, AND FIGHT HARD --NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES. IF YOU RESENTLY RECIEVED A D.U.I., AND ARE IN NEED OF A LAWYER --DO NOT HESITATE, HANDS DOWN CALL MR. WASSON!!!! -----I DID, AND I WOULD DO IT AGAIN, IN A HEARTBEAT!

    I referred someone to Jim. He handled it quickly and capably, doing a first rate job and resulting in all charges being dismissed. He's also a complete gentleman and a pleasure to work with.

    • I recommend James Wasson.

    I would recommend Mr. Wasson to handle any legal problem I might have! Mr. Wasson is an amazing attorney that truly cares about his clients. Mr. Wasson helped me with an alcohol infraction back in 2012. The results were a complete dismissal of the alcohol related charge. Since then and almost 2 years later an issue arose with my employment agency regarding the same offense. Mr. Wasson sprung into action to my defense. I couldn't believe his devotion and loyalty to a previous case. Mr. Wasson's willingness to help me get through a very stressful administrative hearing, which could have cost me my career, was amazing! The outcome of the hearing worked out well and I am truly grateful to have an attorney such as Mr. Wasson representing me.

    • I recommend James Wasson.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Thank you Mr. Wasson, for your kindness, trustworthiness and expedite service to help me through at the time seemed like the worst time of my life. But thanks to your knowledge and familiarity with the legal system. Thanks to you the hard part is done and I feel like I can breathe again. By the way thank you to your staff everytime I called or came in they were so kind and courteous. Don't worry I will be telling my friends about you. You are great! Again I cannot thank you enough.

    • I do not recommend James Wasson.
    • I hired James 6-12 months ago.
    • James handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I have a dui case and hired mr. wasson to represent me. I only met with mr wasson once when I went in to review my case to see if it is a beatable case. He wrote down my story of the night my dui happened, that's all he went with to argue my case and never called me again until 2-3months later when my case came around in court. Never called or talk to me for any additional information he might need to use in court which I had plenty of info on how they kept me for an hr for my blood alcohol to rise etc. that can be used to fight my case. He handles a lot of other dui cases and had no idea who I was or what I looked like, I was mistaken for someone else every time Go in to make my payments. my case was not going so well and wasson put in very little effort to fight my case due to the large amount of cases he handles. he forgot about me and just pushed my case through just to get me by. Yet he will talk about how good he is and knowledgable he is to try and make me feel comfortable. I don't know about you guys but if I'm paying $4500 for a lawyer, he better know who I am and better keep me inform. He extended my court date knowing he was not going to win my case anyways, therefore I was not able to get my license back at the original earlier set date and now I must wait an additional 3 months out. After he extends my court date on the final date, he tells me to go in and admit no contest in court which did not benifited me nothing waiting 3 months out. To top it off, when I walked in court, he handle me and two other persons cases at the same time in court while us 3 stood up in front of the judge. Even then mr wasson didn't acknowledge me in court when I showed up(forgot and didn't know who I was) and told the judge I was not present. I then walked up during the stand and he finally realizes it was me and forgot my first name also when the judge ask wasson who I was. I basically paid $4500 for him to show up in court for me, otherwise nothing changed and all fines were normal for second offender. I was better off with a public defender. Overall, compare my dui case with other multiple second offenders, I have the same charges, same fines, same everything. Nothing changed for me yet mr wasson will try to convince me he has done and drop a lot of charges for me. Never heard from him again after my last court date. He claims he will help me and assist me to get my license and what I will need to do after court to get it. I am on my own and figure everything on my own once all my payments were in his hands.

  6. Securing James Wasson for my defense was one of best decisions I've made in my adult life.

    • I recommend James Wasson.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I'm a 52-year old educator and entrepreneur. Mr Wasson and his team made me feel confident and at ease throughout a very a stressful time. In court he got my case dismissed. He saved my professional reputation along with thousands of dollars. I could not be any more satisfied with his services. In my view he's the best in the business.

    When you have to deal with the criminal justice system you usually feel like it's you against the world. Mr. Wasson through his actions and his behavior let me know I wasn't alone. He defended my case to the upmost and gave it 110%. When you hear people complaining lawyers are just about the money, do not include him in that conversation. He cares about the individual and the repercussions to the individual that their charge may carry. He is great lawyer and a great individual as well.

    I work for CDC, Mr. Wasson was understanding of the repercussions a DUI would have on my employment. Mr. Wasson was able to gain me a plea deal for a greatly reduced charge despite the fact we are in Tulare County. (A notoriously tough county on DUI's).

    Attorney Wasson was always honest never making false promises. Yet, he was encouraging and was on my side. He let me explain myself and gave me excellent representation. He always tried to ease my concerns. He met the criteria I was looking for in all area I needed. When I first met him he was honest about what I needed him for exactly and that really impressed me. He could have charged more and I would have never known the difference. He got my charges dismissed after arraignment and before pre-trial. He was on my side with the DA and I could tell when it was going to go our way!. This was due to his knowledge of my case. I was so happy and feel like justice was served. I have so many things on my plate at this time and it really eased my mind to have this taken care of. He followed up and made sure I received ASAP my dismissal papers for my records.

    • I recommend James Wasson.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my DUI & DWI matter.

    I hired Mr. Wasson over a year ago when I was cited for DUI. He was able to get my BAL reduced through a plea, I only had to do the 3 month program, and avoided any jail time or community service. I would not hesitate to recommend him, or god forbid, hire him again.
