About James

4
Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    40%
    who have been injured in construction accidents, vehicular injuries, dog bites, slip & falls, or any other type of injury. If you have been injured because of the negligence or misconduct of another, you are entitled to compensation for your economic losses, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages associated with your pain and suffering. Obtaining this compensation, however, requires you to prove every element of your case in a lawsuit.

  2. Car accident
    25%
    If you or a loved one are injured or even killed in an auto accident due to another’s negligence or reckless driving, the impact may be enormous both in terms of financial expenses and forfeits, as well as the physical and emotional pain that must be endured. Insurance companies employ claims adjusters and attorneys to negotiate, litigate, and settle your case to protect their best interests. Without an attorney, you are at the mercy of the insurance company to decide what compensation is fair.

  3. Criminal defense
    20%
    Our attorneys stand up for people who have been wrongfully arrested and charged with Criminal Offenses, and contacting a lawyer as soon as possible will help ensure that you are given a fair trial and that you do not unknowingly forfeit some of the many important rights guaranteed to the accused by the Constitution. In addition to safeguarding your rights, we provide a strong defense whether it involves challenging witness testimony, equipment reliability, or other evidence used against you.

  4. DUI and DWI
    15%
    We operate in the state of NY, an especially harsh state for DWI and DUI offenders. The fact is, the authorities have tools at their disposal which make finding and catching drunk drivers all too easy. Even with a low BAC (blood alcohol content) and no prior offenses, a DWI conviction can cost up to and beyond $10,000 combined in fines, psychiatric assessments, license suspension fees, and mandatory programs. To avoid potential jail time, and secure the best results, legal representation is key.

Absolutely the BEST !!!
After meeting with several Law firms, I called Monroe and Dupree…James Monroe took my call while in the barbers chair….These guys are clearly the best….! Our lives were in a frozen state, but they consoled us and went through all the steps we were gonna go through…They take your calls and answer your questions….They walked us through the journey and stayed the course…I really can’t say enough great things about this guy and his firm….My outcome was terrific and it was all because of the right attorney…They actually care about their clients…I recommend this firm above and beyond, especially in Orange County…
