James defended me in a criminal matter, and did an excellent job. He was diligent and earnest, as well as professional and knowledgeable. Most importantly, he understood the nuts and bolts of how the system works, and explained it in great detail to enable me to make an informed decision. His trial skills were excellent, and his preparation was outstanding. Most important to me, he is confident enough in his own skill to pursue your best interest without regard to his own interest. After the prosecutor in our case made us an offer, he brought a colleague of his into our discussions to provide me a quick "second opinion." Most attorneys would never do that and risk being undercut by another attorney, but James had the confidence and self-assurance to do what was best for me, and not what was easiest for him.

First off, I would like to thank Monsieur Abrenio for the outstanding amount of time and effort he put into the management of my case. It is rare to find attorneys these days that are so dedicated to their clients--and not only dedicated, but effective, informed, and truly passionate about what they are doing. His continuous support and brilliant approach to my situation quite literally saved my life. By comparison, several former alledgedly 'high powered' attorneys I had previously hired accomplished little more than draining my bank account. In conclusion, it has been a privilege working with Monsieur Abrenio, and should I (or any of my family members/friends)ever require legal counsel in the future, he is beyond a doubt the first person I would contact.

James is a very knowledgeable and diligent attorney, who doesn't hesitate to share his expertise. After reading one of his articles I reached out to him for advice on a matter that came across my desk, . He gave me--an attorney he had never met--very detailed information, and referrals for lawyers in my community that could provide more insight into local practice. I would recommend him to anyone.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known James for several years. He is a hardworking attorney. His reputation, as a great criminal defense attorney, is well deserved, as he knows his stuff. He works with a very reputable and outstanding plaintiff's attorney in the area of personal injury and contributes significantly to the firm in their attempt to achieve good results for their clients. There is one thing you should not overlook. If you are in a lawsuit, the last thing you want to worry about is whether you can talk to your attorney or whether you want to do so. James is fun to be around. He is easy to talk to because he listens and responds to your concerns. However, he is the type of person to still be truthful in his assessment, even if it is news you do not want to hear. It is a characteristic you want in an attorney (sincere clarity). Importantly, he gives his cases 100% effort.
