I needed to leave my home as a result of a highly toxic marriage that had finally come to an end. I was scared as my wife has a very high conflict personality style, and I knew I’d need a lawyer who could help protect me and the future I wanted to rebuild for myself and our daughter. Many of the local lawyers from the Ashville metropolitan area were hearst in family law, but none could I find that specialized in high-conflict separation.
Quite frankly, I was scared as I knew that without the protection and guidance of the right attorney who really understood the rigors of dealing with high conflict, my future could be terribly turbulent.
What struck me about Jim at first was his profile on his website. He was authentic, and completely values-driven and spoke as if he knew my situation and desire for a new life completely. His reviews were glowing on AVVO, and our first meeting was stellar. Jim’s quiet, calm, but confident demeanor instilled a peace in me that helped me focus. Jim took time to listen, and process, but in the end, always honor my values and goals - working quickly and efficiently to get all of our ducks in a row. Most of all, Jim had the heart of a coach; he sincerely gave wise counsel when it came to my daughter and her needs - always pointing me to my North Star.
I was literally blown away by the quick, professional, and precise execution of Jim’s process - he had us sitting down to mediation with a legally-binding separation agreement within weeks! Done! The sheer relief I felt by having all of our i’s dotted and t’s crossed and under the law was worth more than I could have ever dreamed.
Now, I’m moving on with my life and happier than I’ve ever been with a bright future. I was able to buy a beautiful home that is perfect for my daughter and I - a place where she can feel safe and enjoy her time as she grows up. I have a new lease on life, and I cannot thank Jim enough. He was a God-send.
