Mr. Bours represented me last year in a case which was very complex and emotionally taxing. I was starting a divorce through a family law attorney when my soon-to-be ex-wife falsely accused me of a crime. I had consulted with Mr. Bours prior to this and my family law attorney had also worked with him in the past. When I reached out to him initially it was for representation on a protection order. Then I learned my ex had placed charges against me and the situation escalated. Ultimately, he won my case, getting the criminal charges and the protection order dismissed (two different cases); But it was his length of experience throughout the ordeal which kept the case(s) moving forward. Throughout the entire ordeal, he and his office staff could not have been more professional, knowledgeable and well organized. He was upfront about the legal costs, but his representation was worth so much more.

Mr. Bours represented me in a complex case which required extensive legal research, computer forensics, and dealing with an extremely difficult prosecutor. I felt like I was his only client. He kept me informed, went the extra mile and planned and executed a very solid strategy. When experts were required, he spent my money as though it were his own, keeping my costs down to what was needed. Ultimately he managed to get the case dismissed by making it clear his defense was well-grounded and formidable.
I just cannot say enough good things about him.
