Had a great experience
My wife and I retained Jim's services to set up a will, power of attorney, and advance medical directive. He was very informative during our initial consultation and helped explain things in a straight forward, easy to understand way. Turnaround time was great and scheduling time for the signing was a breeze.

Being very nervous beginning a custody order for my son, James helped calm my nerves, reassuring me that everything would be okay for my sons best interest. He was there to answer every question I had in the waiting process. On the court date, James came along with me and made sure to have everything clear and in writing to make the process as smooth as possible.

We did it!
Never thought I would need a divorce lawyer and Jim helped me get throu this. I first came to him for consultation. A year later I went back to hire him as my attorney. He gave me fair, sound advise and kept calm when we faced obstacles. His recommendations were balanced and he never promissed something he could not deliver. Jim kept the drama out of the situation and successfully completed my case in as little time as necessary.
