Our family hired Jim to look at the circumstances of my brother's criminal conviction. He worked hard and kept us well informed. I think he's an expert. He treated us with respect, which wasn't true of some others we went to talk to. He also didn't snow us--he was realistic about our chances of changing anything.

I had a very bad car accident and left the scene-a big mistake. James Diamond managed to negotiate with the property owners where I caused the damage, worked with my insurance company and then got me a short court probation. I never lost my license and never got a criminal record. He did a great job and I highly recommend him for motor vehicle or criminal cases.

I was investigated for something I did at work. I interviewed a few lawyers. I picked him because he seemed honest, smart and would work hard. He came through. He commanded the respect of the judge and everybody else involved.

I am the current president of the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and I definitely endorse Attorney Diamond for their work defending people charged with criminal offenses in Connecticut. Attorney Diamond is a tireless fighter for the accused and zealously defends his clients. If you are seeking an attorney for help with a criminal case, you have found a good one in Attorney Diamond.
