Jim helped me out in a family law matter. Ive worked with a lot of worthless lawyers and Jim is a good guy. He's honest and up front. He doesn't overcharge his clients.
He works with you when you can't afford it. He was a life saver, and a blessing after my other lawyer took me for a ride.

My family law case in Mendocino County was very difficult from the start, and I went through a literal phone book trying to find a lawyer that would at least listen to my side before their outright refusal. I was at the end of my rope when I found James. He not only listened to me, but took my case when other lawyers wouldn't even take my phone calls. He handled everything with professionalism, and managed to be compassionate while doing so. I never felt like I was just another client while I worked with Mr. Sansone. He was very quick to return phone calls and e-mails, and always kept me abreast of any changes in my case. I wouldn't hesitate giving Mr. Sansone a reference to someone I knew in California. I also wouldn't think twice about hiring him again if I ever needed a lawyer. He is the best choice I could have every made for my family law case, and I am so grateful for the hard work and compassion he showed while he represented me

Mr. Sansone was a court appointed lawyer. I have tried numerous times to set up an appointment with him regarding my case, with no results and a few times out right refusal. ?!
The telephone staff has been unprofessional, laughing and talking with other people while I was trying to speak and set up an appointment.
Mr. Sansone spoke for me in court, without talking with me or informing me of how we should best approach the situation.
He excluded me from future court hearings, with out talking
with me or asking if that's what I wanted.
I have been trying to change a court order and he will not meet with me to have it done.

Jim is a no nonsense, straight forward, bottom line attorney. He told me the truth, whether I wanted it or not. He was very logical and realistic in his advice on how best to proceed with our case. His fees were reasonable and he did not waste my money or time.

When I was having difficultly collecting money I had loaned out, I called James Sansone. He helped me reach a settlement with my debtor I was happy with. James was easy to get a hold of (something I cannot say about some other attorneys who have represented me). In addition he always was thinking a few steps ahead to make sure both of us clearly understood the options and consequences as the case moved forward. I would recommend James Sansone's legal services to anyone who is in a contract dispute.

James was very helpful and did not make us feel like we were bad people. He gave us time and answered all our questions. He was very quick to respond with our emails and phone calls. James is a caring and knowledgeable lawyer.

My 84 year old mother needed advise and assistance in filing bankruptcy. I looked in the Yellow Pages for someone who handled the Clearlake area for her. I contacted him and he took the rains. He handled everything for us. He was so good with my Mom and it didn't take long before we could all sleep at night. He is very knowledgable and walked us through everything. Even his staff was very helpful. We would not hesitate to use him again if needed. The whole family was very impressed. It's a lot of work to file but he made the work not so bad. e can't thank him enough.

When my wife left me and the kids behind, I didn't know where to turn. Jim jumped in, and fought hard to make sure we were taken care of - at the most reasonable rates in town. Now I have primary custody of the children, got to keep the house - AND receive child support as well. I couldn't have hoped for better results. Thanks Jim!
