Attorney Demmel is a tremendous attorney. He is an advocate that will equitably weigh your needs and wants with what is legally feasible and attainable. Jim makes sure he understands the facts of your situation and explains the procedure of your legal route. His background in psychology allows him a unique ability to interact effectively with all parties involved. He made me feel like my case, and more importantly, my family, was important. He is worth EVERY penny. In my opinion, Jim is a trustworthy and kind man who genuinely cares about your interests, but also will ask guiding questions to help determine what’s best for ALL those involved (including children).
If you wish to avoid the gauntlet of going to court, Jim will negotiate and attempt to find an equitable medium thus saving you a lot of money. However, if the need arises, as in my case, that you must go before a judge, Attorney Demmel will be there to defend your rights and present your case in a professional manner. I pass his office every day I go to work, and everyday I’m reminded of how he guided me through the most tumultuous and trying time of my life and protected my rights as a dad.
Jim Demmel = an attorney who cares.

I would HIGHLY recommend Attorney James Demmel for a divorce attorney to anyone. Jim made the awful experience of divorce much smoother. Jim was also always encouraging of trying to iron details out between my ex-husband and myself unless consulting with Jim was absolutely necessary. Jim cared about my needs as a client and was not just in it to make money as most Attorney's are. I felt an immediate comfort with Jim at the very first consultation I had. Again, I would definitely VERY HIGHLY recommend Jim Demmel.

Jim was wonderful when I was going through my divorce. He walked me through every step of the process and made me feel very comfortable with everything. He was very easy to talk to about my situation and I felt that he genuinely wanted to do what was best for me. I would absolutely recommend him!

Jim did an outstanding job in helping me through a very difficult time. He calmed me down when things got crazy and responded to my questions quickly. He provided me with options and suggestions on how to deal with the situation and basically held my hand while we worked through it. I felt very comfortable with him and felt confident that he knew what he was doing, knew what was going to happen next and how to avoid issues, mistakes and expense. I believe that I made a very good choice in choosing Jim to represent me. He was just what and who I needed.
