Outstanding Probate Attorney
Jim Fletcher is an outstanding attorney! When my brother died in Georgia, with no will, I needed a lawyer to represent me to become the Administrator of my deceased brother's estate. I am from California; and, the laws in Georgia are so different. We were at a loss on how to proceed. My wife, Sally, researched the internet and found Attorney Fletcher, who specializes in probates. After flying to Georgia and attending my brother's funeral, we had an initial one hour free consultation with Attorney Fletcher. During that initial consultation, Attorney Fletcher discovered that my deceased sister-in-law's estate had not gone through probate; and, he agreed to represent me and prepare legal probate documents at a reduced fee for both estates. He was definitely there to help my family. At that moment, my wife and I felt that we had found the perfect lawyer to represent me as Administrator for both estates. Within 24 hours of retaining him as an attorney, Jim Fletcher filed legal paperwork with the Probate Court for me to be assigned as Administrator. With this action, we definitely felt that we hired the right attorney to represent me. During the probate process, Attorney Fletcher sure has proved his worth and outstanding ability. For example, Attorney Fletcher got us connected with a real estate agent, who did a tremendous job selling my deceased brother's house out of the estate. He also handled creditor claims against my deceased brother's estate, in a way that only an attorney could do. (Without Jim Fletcher, I would have been at a loss not knowing what to do about those creditor claims.) Above all, I was especially impressed with Attorney Fletcher's legal work and negotiations to resolve a lien against my deceased brother's house, when it was in escrow prior to closing the sale. These tenacious legal actions by Attorney Fletcher resulted in estate cost savings that far exceeded his cost. As a result, my deceased brother's surviving son received a larger inheritance. Attorney Fletcher, as well as the excellent support staff (Allison and Melissa), were there for my family when we needed them! Given the above, I strongly and highly recommend Attorney Fletcher.

Jim was the difference maker...the sharp & honest legal mind I needed!
We prevailed in our quiet title case. Jim Fletcher is the best. If it can be won Jim can win it! If you want a specialist who can get results without you feeling like you are fighting your attorney(s) as well as your case at the same time then hire Jim, you won't regret it. His billing is VERY fair for what you get. Jim is a rare mix of acute legal skill/depth of knowledge, transparency and integrity. These attributes WILL make the difference between winning your case and losing your case. Not all attorneys are built the same. Some are "craftsmen" others have scant legal knowledge all the while masquerading as "experts"and you may only find out when it is too late and you have spent tens ofthousands of dollars. Other attorneys are solely in it to make a buck. Jim is THAT "craftsman". He is professional and supremely competent at his "craft". If you are going to go to "war" you need the best tools to afford yourself the best shot at winning. I hired Jim to help me with a quiet title case in September 2018. The quiet title portion of my case was only filed April 24 2019, so only 7 months & a week from start to finish. Before that we were in probate court. It only took that long because it was a complicated case which was hard-fought by the opposing party. The short version is that I needed a specialist and 15months later I am happy to say we prevailed! Jim's advice and attention to detail was the difference-maker and it would not have happened without Jim!. He was measured and consistent in his approach. I never felt like I was one of 1000 other cases he had. In fact, his attention to detail and well laid our legal arguements is what brought the other side to the table to negotiate and offer a settlement. When they pushed he pushed back! Each month when I got my bill it was fair...when he did send me a bill during the months where there was no activity he would NOT bill though he had every opportunity to "manufacture billing" which is what many attorneys do. Integrity and thoroughness and depth of knowledge are a rare combination and you will find them in the Fletcher Law Firm and Jim

Aweome and Knowledgeable
Jim Fletcher takes a personal stake in making his clients whole again. He helped me fight vexatious and abusive lawsuits around both real estate and civil matters, succeeding in helping me and providing support. We are also looking to go back and get attorney's fees - not only did he help me win - he wants to get my money back. Awesome indeed.

One of the best lawyers EVER!
I have worked with Jim (James) Fletcher for the last few years. I was referred to him by an attorney who wouldn't take my case, instead this attorney told me to call him once I had a million dollar lawsuit. The referring attorney assured that Jim could help with my matter. Long story short, Attny Fletcher delivered results that were proven highly favorable to my best interest. I've continued to use him for business and personal matters. I have referred Attny Fletcher to many family members and friends. It's hard to find a good attorney so when you find one make him or her your best friend. By far, I am impressed with all services I have retained from Attny Fletcher.

Very professional
Mr.Fletcher helped me through the trademark process. He is very knowledgable, precise, and best of all, accessible. I spoke with him several times through the process as he kept me in the loop of the progress. He is a very personable and trustworthy professional. I would use him again without a second thought.

Jim Fletcher is a prepared and smart attorney
Jim Fletcher, Esq. helped my family and I deal with legal issues during a very difficult time in our lives. Jim was very thorough and detailed, he did his research and was extremely prepared without getting a lot of input from me. I trust Jim completely will always be grateful for his knowledge of the law, sensitivity, guidance and ultimately, getting us the best outcome and closure.

Terrible communication
I hired Mr. Fletcher a few months back and it's really been a struggle to work with him. He is extremely bad at communicating with me and I have to email or call several times to get any type of response from him (if any). I already felt betrayed and upset with the situation I had to call him for in the first place and then on top of that...he hasn't done a good job making me feel at ease what so ever. He truly made me feel like my case was not important AFTER hiring him and continues to tell me how busy he is. I get it. We are all busy but this is your job. My case has gone on for months too long all because he hasn't made the time for it.

Response from James Fletcher April 28, 2015
I am disappointed to read this review, because both I and the other legal and non-legal professionals at my law firm work very hard to help our clients, inform them when events occur in a case, and to explain the process along the way. Without knowing who posted this review, I cannot know if it is real or not, or what led to it. My many other client reviews are a testament to mine and my firm's dedication to our clients and getting the best results available.
