My son got into trouble last month and got charged. My family was scared. We did not know whether my son will go to jail and we did not know whether we can afford to hire a top tier lawyer to help.
Luckily, we talked with Jim. Jim was very professional. He listened to us patiently. He analyzed the case for us. And the flat fee Jim asked for was way lower than we thought. In my opinion, Jim's extensive experience as a commonwealth attorney and a public defender made him a highly experienced top tier lawyer in the area. My family hired Jim the next day we met him.
Jim studied the case, worked with the prosecutor and the intake officer, and found the right psychological counselor for my son. Now the case is sent back to intake and we do not have to go into a trial/adjudicatory-hearing, the best any lawyer can do for this case. During this time period, Jim had to deal with sickness of his family members, but still managed to contact people and handle the case professionally and skillfully even when he was at the hospital.

Jim is a wonderful man and lawyer he has always been prompt to help when a situation arose. I highly recommend him because he takes a personal interest in making sure your issues are resolved in a timely manner. I have hired him and his company several times and will not use any other lawyer’s office in the future. Two thumbs way way up.

I had the opportunity to work for Jim and observed first hand his knowledge of the law and passionate representation of clients. His experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney mean he can see both sides of every case and prepare accordingly. I highly recommend him.
