The best
This lawyer is the best there is in the city, hands down. He's what every lawyer should be, its not about your money, its about you and what he can do for you. I love this guy and I really mean that, he's the reason I was able to change my life around he gave me a second chance. Whatever he says he's gonna do he does it, Lloyd keep on doing what you're doing. I appreciate you and your professionalism, the best the best the best oh just in case I forgot to tell you. YOU'RE THE BEST THE CITY HAS

"It gives me great pleasure to endorse Jim Lloyd. I have known him since 2002 when we were prosecutors in the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. Mr. Lloyd has gained invaluable experience as an Assistant District Attorney, a law clerk for a Common Pleas judge, a trial attorney in the civil sector and now a criminal defense attorney. This experience combined with his quick wit and personality make him an excellent trial lawyer. I highly recommend him."
