The most important duty in my practice is to focus on the goals of the client.  In this business, nothing else matters besides listening to what exactly the client needs and what outcome they are seeking, and then using the law to the fullest extent to achieve those goals.  Therefore, when you contact me and explain your legal situation, I will immediately suggest free, virtual consultation.  At that consultation, we will discuss the most important issues you are facing, and then we will discuss what your goals are for the situation and what our firm can do to help.

Professional Prepared followed by Results
When I approached James for representation, I already had confidence in his abilities through word of mouth. He immediately laid out all possible consequences. He understood the problem, and in being honest with him about the charges Brought against me, he laid out all possible angles and paths we could follow to minimize the sentencing while, understanding I needed to be prepared for the worst. He was easy to contact with questions and would give clear answers at each step in the process. At every appearance required by the state, he came prepared, based on his knowledge of the of the process, in conjunction with the charges. This made me feel comfortable and confident in his abilities. He made it so that the legal jargon, was easily understood for me, the average citizen. In my situation, he was able to obtain the best possible outcome, through vast knowledge preparedness, and open lines of communication. Hiring this firm was one of the best describe I have made in my adult life.

Excellent Legal Service
Jim is a highly skilled attorney who recently performed excellent legal service for me. He was very ethical and at all times looked after my best interests. He anticipated events well and reacted in a timely manner. He was always quick to get back in touch with me when I had a question. His charges were fully reasonable and the billing made clear to me at every step. The biggest thing was a genuine sense of compassion coupled with real world understanding and strong legal expertise. At the end of the day, I knew that I was represented by a true professional who was willing to go the extra mile for his client. According, I would enthusiastically recommend Jim to anyone in need of legal counsel. Thanks much, Jim.

Passionate and Prepared
Jim helped me with a criminal defense matter. His work in preparing for trial and legal research was thorough excellent. Additionally, he was an effective negotiator and was able to reach a favorable result. Although not the most inexpensive defense lawyer, I thought he delivered unsurpassed value for his fee. I have recommended him to a close friend who was also extremely happy with the outcome of her case. Thanks Jim!
