I contacted Mr. Koehler to help in a critically important emergency legal situation. He responded quickly, was direct and concise (which I respected and appreciated), spent adequate time to understand the circumstances, took appropriate and timely action filing documents with the court, consulted/responded when I had concerns prior to the court date (was ALWAYS responsive and engaged), and helped my family through a scary and emotionally draining situation.
Mr. Koelher was always respectful in responding to my many questions and concerns, and my family and I could not be more grateful for the patient and expert assistance provided.
I am familiar with several attorneys, and I highly recommend Mr. Koehler to those who want an attorney who doesn't beat around the bush, gets the problem solved, and lets a person go back to normal life as quickly as is possible.

Mr. Jamison was my lawyer for my second DUI in less than a year and I was facing some real time behind bars. The trial expanded for a few months He filed about five to six motions on my behalf. He was phenomenal doing the cross examination. He made the prosecution's Witnesses look foolish they end up dropping all charges against me I could not have asked for a better attorney.

I called Jamison Koehler this morning because he was the first attorney that populated in my search results. I contacted him to seek legal representation in a Simple Assault case. I was speaking for maybe one minute when he cut me off and said "I charge $2500 for Simple Assault." The way he said it just didn't feel right. It was almost as if he through out a high number to scare me off, like he totally didn't expect me to say that I was comfortable with the number. After confirming I was comfortable he paused for a second and then asked me for my email address. He stated he would send me his retainer letter to set up a payment arrangement and get started, but we hadn't discussed anything about my case yet neither did he inform me of what he can do to assist me. Now what person in their right state of mind signs a contract before determining if it could be fulfilled or even discussing the terms of the contract first?! Anyway, I asked him if we'd be able to discuss the case and my options before I agree to hire him and he responded "I don't give free consultations!" I replied "I never asked for a free consultation." He paused again, but for a few seconds longer than before, then replied "well I'm good at what I do so why don't you call other attorney's and see what they can offer because I'm too busy." I would think if he was too busy for my case then he wouldn't have entertained it from the beginning. I work for attorney's so I know they can be very demanding and even subconsciously rude often, but this guy here...I can't formulate the words to describe him and besides, I'm not into name calling anyway, but he needs an attitude adjustment and a customer service course to learn what his parents should've taught him...common courtesy and respect. Especially for a potential client. I question if he talks to all of his client's/potential client's this way or just the ones he think can't afford him.

I strongly endorse Mr. Jamison Koehler. I have referred cases clients to Mr. Koehler and his service and dedication to each and every one of them was admirable and outstanding. He is a gifted and talented lawyer and uses innovative and intense strategies to obtain the best possible outcomes for his clients. He is also a genuinely kind and caring person and places his clients above everything and everyone during the course of the representation.
