Review James Michael

  • Professional, knowledgeable, and responsive

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Jim assisted in a situation involving a family member and police. The incident occurred over a weekend and Jim took my call looking for assistance and representation on a Sunday. His calm demeanor immediately eased my concerns and his thorough explanation of next steps and process were not only clear, but ultimately exactly on target as what transpired.
    Our situation was resolved in a timely and fair manner.
    Throughtout the process Jim was always available to answer questions and provide verbal and in person support.
    I would recommend him without question.

    My experience with him very professional and extremely honest and loyal he's a very hard worker and tends to get the job done better than you even expected I hired him to represent two of my sons on two different incidents and on both of them we all were very pleased at the outcome I hope I never need him again but if I ever need a lawyer or know of anyone that needs a lawyer he will come very very highly Recommended Mr James Michae's is the best I've ever seen

  • Illegally signed plea bargain... Offered to testify against me in court... Paid $3000

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    I hired Mr. Michaels to represent and defend me in a DUI case. As an out of state resident, he attended the administrative hearing for my drivers license. He signed a plea agreement stating that I would plead guilty without my knowledge and didn't tell me until 2 days before trial. I hired another lawyer. During my trial, the plea agreement was used to find me guilty and Mr. Michaels was available via phone to the prosecutor to testify against me and he was initially paid $3000 to defend me. Shame on him AND the Dekalb County court system for allowing this to occur.

    James David Michael’s response: “This former client's account of my representation is grossly inaccurate, and borders on libel. It is the product of someone who was ultimately unhappy with the result of the case. I did not handle this case to its conclusion, but I made sure that every measure taken during my time of employment was with my client's full approval. Having successfully practiced in the DeKalb County arena for 20-plus years, my excellent reputation has been earned by my expertise and professionalism, and I will guard it zealously, as I zealously protect the interests of my clients.”
  • James Michael is the Best Criminal Defense Lawyer!

    I hired James for my case in Dekalb County Ga, he is an aggressive and very logical attorney, he gave me a thorough understanding of the entire process, immediately you become aware of his integrity and commitment to your case. Phone calls were answered and info I requested about my case was always available. I can say there was nothing he failed to do and he was able to get my case dismissed. Thank you, James.

    We were in the unfortunate situation in which our son needed legal defense. After numerous phone interviews we chose Jim based on his knowledge of the law, as well as his professional and compassionate manner. For my son, it was money well spent. Jim showed no personal judgment about my son and was very aggressive in working the courts to get a fair ruling. I told Jim at the end of this situation I would gladly be a positive reference for him. I heard Jim providing my son with his own fatherly advice, which was outstanding. I highly recommend Jim to anyone needing honest feedback on legal matters and a legal defense if the situation arises.

    With five drivers in our household, we have all needed Jim's assistance navigating through the system with what was the best way to handle a traffic violation. Jim was very knowledgeable on what would be the best course of action for our different circumstances. We think very highly of him and strongly recommend him!!

    I have been working with Mr. Michaels for about 2 years on various situations. Each time he worked efficiently on my behalf and the result had been a favorable outcome. I have recommended him to at least 2 people that have retained his services and were just as pleased.

    James handled a difficult and embarrassing situation with sensitivity and professionalism. Was non-judgmental and provided an efficient expeditious legal defense.

    James is a life-saver. Do NOT trust the District Attorney or the court system to "do the right thing". I only wish I had him in my speed dial when I was erroneously and unfairly arrested.
