After my husband was "let go," for bogus reasons, Jim helped us sort through the mire of Virginia's "At Will" issues and make the best decision possible for our situation. He helped us find a balanced position when we were still reeling and unsteady from losing my mother 2 weeks before. When the question arose regarding possible denial of unemployment compensation, he once again came to our aid, and de-mystified the process...and provided excellent counsel. He is very approachable, kind hearted, and understanding. I so very much appreciate all that he did for us and highly recommend him.

That is exactly what he gave me - peace of mind and resolution to a very traumatic situation I was in. I was impressed with his demeanor, knowledge, patience, professionalism and take charge approach. He constantly kept me informed and updated through out the process and went above and beyond what was necessary. I am grateful my Son found him to represent me.

Jim has always exhibited a high degree of professionalism in every contact I have had with him. If something is out of his area of expertise, his referrals have been of the highest level of expertise. I can't think or consider seeking legal counsel from anyone else.
