Trustworthy, Dedicated, Expert legal representation
Jim and his associate, Cliff, represented me in a recent matter. From my first contact with them via telephone, I knew I was in good hands. Jim spent lots of time on the phone with me to learn the details of my case, explain all my options, and to provide his best guesses as to the likelihood of various outcomes. The firm kept me apprised of any status updates as time went on, and I was very happy with the final result. Their legal experience is second-to-none in Georgia, and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to others without hesitation. Thank you Jim and Cliff.

I can't recommend enough!!
Jim has great knowledge in debt collections and creditor harassment laws. He took on two separate cases for me on the same day, one of which was literally in a time crunch as a court deadline was 2 days away. Jim spent a good amount of time on the phone with me going over options and payment structures and explaining what he expected to come of both cases. He was able to get both cases resolved in the exact way I was hoping for with great outcomes for me. He was very easy to work with and very generous with his time. I especially like that he was able to do 100% of our business through email without a need for me to drive to his office. This was the best experience I have had to date working with an attorney.

He is the one
I talked to numerous attorneys in order to settle my debt case but I was told they won't be able to help me or negotiate my case, from every single attorney I spoke to. Some of them didn't even call me back when I left them a message with a brief summary of my situation to their secretary. Mr. Feagle answers the phone, responds my emails in a timely manner. My case was settled in a few days in my desired direction. He saved my life. I highly recommend Mr. Feagle!

Great Job
From day one, Attorney Feagle demonstrated tremendous knowledge and expertise in the law pertaining to my daughter issue. He was patient and responsive. He did the research necessary in helping her....Attorney Feagle priority was to help my daughter first and getting pay took a back seat. I must also mention that his pay structure was reasonable and workable.

Great Attorney for consumer issues
Mr. Feagle handled a credit issue for me a couple of years ago and did a great job
Posted by anonymous | September 10, 2013
Thank Goodness
This was my first time having to hire a debt defense attorney and actually hired him after reading reviews on this site. I at most expected settlement but got more than I could ask for (dismissal with prejudice) and didn't get the run around and rigmarole I was getting from other attorneys. Would definitely recommend and hire again if needed. If you are being sued by a creditor please seek his services, it never hurts to ask.
