Student Loan Debt
Mr. Turner has been amazing. It took a while but his persistent efforts where able to get my cases dismissed. The time was worth it and the fee was very reasonable. It feels great to have this burden off my back and Mr. Turner made it happen.

N. (Jim) Turner has been a godsend to us. An A-list attorney working miracles for everyday people! A large debt collector wrongfully sued us and we were running out of time to respond as we researched the opponent, the legal jungle, and possible lawyers nearby our Citrus county location. Several lawyers in Citrus, Marion, and Alachua counties were not willing to take our case, which involved an opponent with accomplished and ruthless legal staff. We looked farther out to Tampa and Orlando for attorneys One Sunday, we sent inquiries to eight of them including Jim who appeared to have successful trial experience with similar cases. We were expecting to hear from someone Monday at least, but in just several hours, we got the first response - from an N. Jim Turner and his Debt Relief Law Center in Orlando -on a Sunday afternoon! We knew then - this was no ordinary attorney -someone who works quick and doesn't let the weekend stop them! Jim quickly flipped the table on this predatory debt collector and their legal sharks! He immediately researched a huge amount of case information and had a response and countersuit filed 1 1/2 days after providing him documents. We ended up collecting FROM them instead of paying! We have seen first hand Atty. Turner's commitment to clients, amazing knowledge, and ability to get results. His heart is in pulling off a miracle for every client and he has the talent and work ethic to do it. If you need a consumer protection attorney to turn legal adversity pitched at you into a home run and win, Atty. N. James Turner and his team are the ones to talk with!

Foreclosure Litigation
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 has helped me now with 2 cases. He is excellent to work with. He is prompt to respond back to any questions or concerns you may have. He does all the work, and doesn't require much of your time. Just and email every now and then when he required further informations or to keep you updated throughout the process. I actually did refer a friend to him who also had a very positive experience. I will continue to recommend him to others for situations he may be able to improve. He is very straight forward, which i truly appreciate. Bottom line, he delivers.

He just gets it!
As soon as Mr. Turner heard of my situation, he felt that I needed to see him immediately... With his 39 years of experience I didn't need to explain much ... He just got it and told me what needed to be done.. Was amazing with his knowledge, and immediate followed up! He is open, honest , and confident but not in a bad way.. He is making this experience which is usually unpleasant much easier to deal with.
