I live in the county Elkin NC is located. I have been aware of James Gillespie Practice for nearly 30 years. His experience, professionalism, and knowledgeable about the law and court system is well known.
As a result when it came time to hire an attorney myself in regards to a divorce involving traumatic custody issues, I knew I couldn't trust the safety and future of my children to anyone with less experience and knowledge of the law and court proceedings.
James is always professional. I often shared my opinions on our court proceedings and he always listened. He was very polite in guiding me about the proceedings. While I didn't always understand why we were doing what we were doing as a father, I knew I could trust him. I told him as we went in, I am trusting you with our children the most important part of my life.
I couldn't have done it without him. He stood with me many times in a long drawn out court battle, never wavering in his vigilance for the best interest of our children.
While it was difficult, in the end the courts determined it was in the best interest of the children that I have custody. We still work as a family to get through some things, but because of Jame's professionalism and watchful eye in our case I am no longer concerned with the safety of our children.
I now carry Jame's business cards with me and when I hear of anyone needing an attorney, I am quick to recommend him and pass them a card.
I would highly recommend James Gillespie to anyone who needs an attorney regarding Family, Criminal Defense or Personal Injury.
Quickly in regards to the personal injury, I had an occasion to need a personal injury lawyer in the state of VA. I hired one of the highest recommended lawyers from Blacksburg VA. While he was working my case around 2001, he asked if I knew James Gillespie. I said yes I did. The attorney told me if you or anyone ever needs a personal injury lawyer in NC, tell them to hire James Gillespie. The VA attorney told me James argued a case against him once and he had never had anyone do as good a job as James did against him arguing a personal injury case.
