Look no further for the most professional, knowledgeable, and stand up attorney you will find. When going to battle you undoubtedly want James on your side. He singlehandedly orchestrated a settlement for my case after completely dismantling the oppositions main players leaving them no choice but to avoid court. This attorney is the real deal!
Simply put, Jim Quadra is one of the best and smartest lawyers I know. He is able to identify the issues quickly and presents practical and common sense advise and counsel.
Jim is not only a brilliant attorney but also a compassionate one. We hired him to represent us in a serious automobile accident where we were the defendant - despite having an insurance attorney for free. It was the best decision we could have made. Jim was worth every penny, negotiating a settlement with the opposing party we do not think would have happened without him. He laid out his strategy clearly to us right from the beginning, always listened patiently to our concerns, and with great kindness calmly talked my husband (the defendant) down from many an emotional cliff. We cannot recommend him highly enough.
If a ten star rating existed, James Quadra and his amazing associates would be the recipients! James Quadra is extremely helpful and honest. I would highly recommend he and the entire group at Quadra & Coll. Whether it"s a minor or major case, he and his associates work hard. James is very prompt about returning my calls and keeping me updated on every aspect of my case. James is very empathetic and down to earth - really gives you a full and complete understanding of what"s going on in terms you can comprehend. That alone makes you feel comfortable! I am extremely grateful for all the assistance he's provided and the hour upon hours he's put in. Not only is he an outstanding attorney, he's a terrific guy!
Working with Jim Quadra has been a really good experience. He knows his facts, is quick to respond and takes charge of getting the job done. Jim explains the legal issues very clearly and yet does not waste time or money on fluff. He has helped provide foundation for our case by way of legal research and presented it well to those who need to know that material. I would give him a very strong endorsement as a great attorney to have on your side. I would also be fearful of those who have him as counsel on the opposing counsel's team. Really smart and very good value for the money.
James Quadra was referred to me by a friend who is also an attorney.
My first question to my friend was "who is the best attorney you would recommend?" and he replied with "James Quadra."
This couldn't have been more true. From our first meeting, Jim was completely in charge and knew exactly the course of action to take in order for me to achieve my desired outcome.
He was thorough in his research, and had a complete understanding of the subject matter, which I discovered many other attorneys did not (this involved trust management).
More importantly, Jim took all of the pressure off of me and made me feel comfortable. This was the first time in my life I was involved in litigation. I was being accused of trust mismanagement, which I knew was completely false and had all the necessary documentation to prove my innocence.
However, when charges are being brought against you unjustly, it is quite nerve-racking, and the most valuable thing Jim did, was to calm me down and reiterate that there was an intelligent resolution to this matter.
The best thing I did was to follow his advice to the word.
Jim's understanding of the subject matter, and the best way to resolve it, was so much more sophisticated than any approach I could have thought of, that it replaced all feelings of helplessness, and instead turned it around in to one of confidence, as Jim was able to brilliantly educate me as to how we were going to achieve my goal.
Which we did.
At the final resolution of this case, I came out with EVERYTHING I wanted.
I couldn't have asked for anything more, and was ecstatic over the final outcome.
It was Jim's innate understanding of his profession, and his ability to control the situation, that was the key. Jim took what was a frightening experience for me, and turned it in to one of complete satisfaction.
I would completely and without any reservation recommend James Quadra, and the entire firm of Calvo, Fisher and Jacob for their superb analytical capabilities. They are an exceptional firm and for that I am eternally thankful.
