A Great example of honesty,kindness,and professionalism
Over a year ago I was let go from a place of I worked for over 10 years. I was just 1 year short of retirement and had several financial obligations. This left me with thousands of dollars in debt and no insurance. I found Mark James on line ,in fact I found several attorneys. I emailed each of them and Mark was the only who called me. I knew he was the one that cared! I hired Mark and I was so grateful I did!! I was never disappointed and I will always recommend Mark James as a Attorney that is honest,helpful, and kind!

Excellent Attorney
Mark guided me through the procedures to file my bankruptcy. He negotiated the payback schedule and amount that was very affordable to my budget. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone that was in my situation.

A review of a true professional, Attorney Mark James
Working with Mark James has been a true pleasure! My wife and I initially set up with Mark a chapter 13 bankruptcy; but with even more changes in our circumstances, consulted Mark in a conversion to a chapter 7. As we learned no lawyer can change the existing laws, but Mark was very knowledgeable and skilful in utilizing the law to our advantage at every turn to successfully maneuver us legally thought the process. Mark was always within easy reach and kept us updated and informed regularly so that we did not need to guess as to the next steps. Now that the process is behind us, we are so happy that Mark entered our life and we now have a renewed sense of calm and the bankruptcy has given us the fresh start we needed. I can say with no hesitation that Mark is a true professional with a firm grasp of the law and who also has a warm and friendly personality. If you chose Mark to handle your case, you will not regret the decision. Jim

My review for Attorney Mark Andrew James
My attorney Mark Andrew James is a great atorney. He always returned my phone calls and my E-mails and kept me up to date with things about my case. Attorney Mark Andrew James deserves the highest praise.

Honorable Attorney Who Cares
As senior citizens who always did the right thing, when we were forced to enter bankruptcy we thought we could never hold our heads up again. Mark was there for us and showed us that the circumstances that we were experiencing were a part of this terrible economy and we could be helped and salvage our respectability. Mark has settled our case and we are on our way. He is a wonderful person who really cares for his clients.

Endorse Mark
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | May 16
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mark for many years, and partnered with him from 2007-2011. Mark is quite thorough in his case reviews, and he is consistently conscientious about helping his clients with not only chapter 7 & 13 bankruptcies, but also with IRS, zoning, and probate problems. I have observed him draft Last Wills and advance directives for many homebound clients. He is one of the few attorneys I know who will travel to his client's homes or offices to meet with them, and he is also active in serving his community as a volunteer judge-like presider over Volusia County Teen Court Program proceedings."
Chapter 13 bankruptcy Attorney | Jun 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Mark since law school. He was an excellent student who developed into an outstanding lawyer. Mark is very well rounded and knowledgeable lawyer in many areas of the law, some of which overlap. This knowledge, coupled with his strong advocacy skills, makes him an outstanding choice as an attorney."
