Oui (drugs) Possision, Neg Op. of a vehicle
I guess the best way to describe my laywer is content. Things could have not been any better with this case. The police just love to throw whatever sticks, these unfortunately are pretty serious. These were oui (drugs) possision, neg op. All face serious consequences, nervous, absolutely, scared, and a deck for a year. James worked hard on these, put my mind at rest, and told me, let him work. I couldn't been more satisfied knowing how this turned out, the possision, and oui were dismissed, even for a first time, this is huge. I hope to never go through this again. Things could have been alot worst is the oui was a guilty. So, if your in a similar situation were your facing life changing alterations, give him a chance, I did, and now I can move on.

Great Lawyer
James is professional and knowledgeable and has represented our family twice. He makes himself available and explains the status of the case. He provides detailed updates and gives sound advice to consider next steps. He is fair with payment options and will work with you as needed. He successfully had our case dismissed and is currently representing our family on another case. I have every faith in his ability to steer the case in the direction that is favorable to us. I would definitely recommend him and hire him again.

Jim was extremely professional and jumped on my case as soon as I gave him my report. I had never hired a lawyer and he laid out the groundwork and made the experience as easy and pain free as possible. If I had any questions no matter what time of day he would either text me back or call me. I would highly recommend Jim.

I can honestly say Degiacomo did the best job possible by closing and beating my OUI case late last year. Keeping my record clean will not only help me financially but will allow new job opportunities that arise that I wouldn’t be able to be a part of if I had lost the Case! Best attorney around in my opinion!
