Christine was not only the first to reply to my questions and concerns regarding my brother's estate via Avvo, when I called her office and left a message, she actually texted me a reply after hours to set up a phone appt,, during which she spent a significant amount of time to clarify what needs to be done regarding an Insolvent estate as well as obtaining info online about a Small Estate Affidavit and where to download the proper form. It was obvious to me she is extremely knowledgeable in the area of Probate law, but more importantly, she was kind, patient, sensitive to my situation and sudden loss of my brother. Christine also encouraged me that I could pretty much handle these particular issues on my own without hiring an attorney and that based on the state of his financial affairs, Probate court was not necessary. If I ever NEEDED to hire a Probate attorney, Christine James IS the one. Thank you so much, Sincerely, B.Argonza
Just when I had lost all hope of finding an attorney who was not condescending, arrogant, and "in it" for every penny they could get, I found Christine James!! She is compassionate, considerate, and responsive, to your needs. She is extremely knowledgeable and her ability to explain the laws and how they affect "regular" people is a quality most attorneys lack considerably. She has my highest regard, my total respect, and my sincerest gratitude. I recommend Ms. James without hesitation and with complete confidence.
Definitely would recommend her. Christine is really professional. I let handle a very confusing case. She's very attentive to details, keep me updated, and quick. I still have so many things to say. But need to keep it short. Two thumbs up for her professionalism and kindness.
After firing one attorney for poor representation, my case was a mess and I was in a pickle. Christine James offered to step in and help. That she did. She got the results I wanted and I still have my first born child.. LOL I have worked with several attorneys over the years and although most were very good lawyers, winning lawyers, without exception, they were also very obtuse, rude, jaded and annoying! I had began to think they had to be that way in order to get results... On the other hand, I wondered if Ms. James was either a brand new attorney who hadn't sharpened her honed her sarcasm yet, or if she had some how missed taking the required "Obnoxious 101" in law school... She was that pleasant to work with.. I was very surprised to learn that she has been practicing law for 20 years... and boy oh boy, did she ever get the results I asked her to get for me! Hire this attorney folks, she will get the job done for you, and she won't charge an arm and a leg. She cares about your individual case and she will get results!
Ms James specifically answered my question and offered additional information that was very helpful. In this day and age, her timely response was very refreshing.
Where do I start? I was procrastinating about getting an estate plan together for my 2 children because I had many questions about property taxes and exemption forms from my recent father's passing. Christine's response to me was quick, professional, and efficient. Her fees beat out the competition from the rest of the lawyer's on this site and she responded to everyone of my questions, that not only put my mind at ease, but made this process very smooth. Even after I had paid for everything in full, when I had additional questions from a postcard I received from the Placer county assessor's office, she not only put in a courtesty call for me, but followed up again! AWESOME!!!!
I got an answer back over night and the advice is solid and helpful, she is excellent I would hire her in a minute..
Christine James was hired to take care of a Family Trust matter for me. As Trustee she helped me navigate through the CA family court process. She dealt with the opposing counsel with class and dignity. Her philosophy is straight forward- facilitate a sucessful outcome for her client with as little cost as possible. Christine James is who you want at the helm--when chartering into unknown legal waters.
An excellent attorney, very knowledgable, and businesslike but compassionate. I felt that she was working to resolve our case with as little stress for me as possible. She was in complete control of the situation at all times. We reached an equitable agreement for the dispostion of the suit.
