My daughter got herself into some trouble and we can not thank this woman enough for all she did for her. She not only took on my daughters case fastly but immediately started coming up with the best possible outcomes for her as well. She took the time to discuss every ramification of this situation as throughly as possible and was a great advocate for our daughter. She responded very fastly to phone calls and or emails. I would highly recommend Latoya James to anyone, she was phenomenal.

Mrs. James was my attorney for a crazy mix up I got myself into regarding family court. She was honest, focused and really had my best interest in mind the entire time. Getting in contact with her was no issue ever, she always returned my calls in a timely matter. Hiring her was a no brainer, the best of the best!!!! Thank you so much LaToya!!!!

LaToya James was extremely compassionate to my situation and extremely willing to help me "get out of dodge." Her representation was honest and effective. She is knowledgeable, assertive and diligent when it comes to gathering the appropriate evidence as well as witnesses.
With her help my son and I are SAFE, away from our abuser and have the ability to be successful in all of our endeavor's.
