A home that I had purchased in Florida while on active duty with the military had fallen into foreclosure as a result of unexpected unemployment. After all processes concluded with the bank and mortgage company, another party of whom I had never worked with or even heard of suddenly began proceedings to sue me for tens of thousands in shortfalls for the sale of the house. Needless to say, this caused quite the amount of strain and anxiety for my family, especially not knowing if the lawsuit was legitimate or enforceable.
After some research into the validity of the suit, I searched online for a lawyer that specialized in this sort of litigation and happened upon Attorney Jim Turner. I cold-called him and he was gracious to give me a quick phone consultation. I immediately retained his services as it seemed far better to have someone well enough versed in our situation to represent our side.
It has been a long process going through the litigation process (courts take time)...but it has been relatively painless due to having Attorney Jim Turner as counsel. My family is no longer located in Florida so Mr. Turner has handled all paperwork filings, kept me informed of progress and communicated during delays. Our foreclosure took place at the height of the boom-bust of the housing market so delays in caseload is to be expected.
I am infinitely pleased with the work of Attorney Jim Turner. He is been straightforward and optimistic about our chances of a favorable outcome which so far has proven to be the case. There is no way I would have wanted to face this situation alone.
I highly recommend Attorney Jim Turner for anyone needing his annotated areas of expertise.

Mr. Turner answered all of my questions in a timely manner, and was successful in pursuing my case. I would certainly turn to him again in the future if needed.
