I was in need of advice and he did not hesitate. He had a lot of knowledge and was concerned about my specific facts. He was immediately available and took time to research for me. I knew that I could trust him and that he cared.
James was kind enough to assist me with questions I had and always steered me in the proper direction. I never had to second guess his knowledge. He knows everything in his field off the top of his head with great accuracy. He knows many of the players in his field as well. He is always there where I need him! Quick, professional and made me feel good I had him in my corner.
My first impressions of Jim Shepherd was his responsiveness--he made extra efforts to reach me even while he was away on a trip. Now, I don't expect that he would always be available that way, but it sure impressed me that an attorney was calling me back, responding to the urgency of my situation, even while he was away on a holiday. As it turns out, my further interactions with Jim substantiated that initial impression--he has been consistently responsive.
In our initial consultations he was very generous with his time, and very specific and thorough in both his questions as well as his responses. He gave a us a very clear and thorough view of what we could expect in pursuing a bankruptcy, and he was quick to note where it might be useful or less than so in our various scenarios.
Based on our experience, I can say that Jim takes a dedicated interest in properly evaluating the need, applicability, and viability of a bankruptcy option, with specific attention to the client's unique situation, and ultimate benefit.
I would highly recommend anyone who may be considering bankruptcy to contact Jim and avail themselves of his services!
Mr. Shepherd was a true source of comfort during a difficult time. He assised us through the bankruptcy process, answering questions promptly and thoroughly in language we could understand. He is very easy to communicate with and trustworthy. We would highy recommend his services.
