Saved me money with a short phone call
I had a specific question about a credit agency reporting something that I thought was inaccurate. Mr. Hurt explained how it worked. Saved me money in legal fees.

Strongly Recommend
My husband and I worked with Jimmy Hurt when we were the victims of fraud. He spent so much time with us, researching our case and procuring expert witnesses. Jimmy was easy to reach when we had any questions or concerns. I would strongly recommend Jimmy and his staff.

My first call for legal advice
Jimmy Hurt has never disappointed me with his advice or service when I have needed.him. I have advised several friends to seek his counsel through the years and all have been completely happy with Jimmy's attention to their situations. When the situations have fallen outside of His particular areas of expertise, Jimmy has always directed us to the appropriate place for help. He is extremely easy to talk to and is very effective in helping you to understand your options. I call Jimmy first and so should you!

Please consider James Hurt for your legal needs
I was referred to Mr. Hurt by attorney Chapman. He assisted me with great skill, compassion and accessibility. I was in a jam and needed his help right away with a consumer law issue and he responded immediately. The care and resourceful and attentiveness that he displayed and gave to my legal needs are incomparable. I have dealt with attorneys in the past as a Realtor and as one in need for other weighted matters and I can tell you, James Hurt is one to be considered and kept as a resource for life. Thank you Mr. Hurt, thanks to you my car was not illegally repoed and I was able to reach a settlement that I could afford.

Having Jimmy Hurt in your corner is a great asset!
Jimmy helps me with my business needs. Not only is he very knowledgeable but has the transparency to tell me when he doesn't know something and that he'll find out for me ... and then he does! I highly recommend Jimmy Hurt for your legal needs.

Consumer suit against bank
Hired Mr. Hurt to pursue a consumer claim against a major national bank. Was very pleased with the way he conducted the litigation, not only in his preparation, but his professional and cordial relationship he had with defense counsel, that ultimately led to an amicable resolution to the case.
