I was referred to Jim from another lawyer I do business with and was very impressed with his handling of a difficult situation. During the negotiations, tensions were heightened to a point where the other side almost backed out. After the deal closed, the opposing lawyer made the comment that had it not been for Jim's involvement, the deal would've never happened. I believe the reasons for this had everything to do with Jim's integrity. I prefer to always do business with straight shooters who tell it like it is and operate in an ethical, honest, trustworthy approach. Jim is clearly this. His previous experience of owning his own business is a major plus. I'm more than happy to return the favor to Jim and speak with anyone who wants to ask questions.

I have worked with Jim for many years with my start up company. He is very knowledgeable, patient, has a fast turnaround of documents and information and is such a pleasure to work with. Having been an entrepreneur himself in his own successful consumer products start up years ago, he brings first hand knowledge that is immeasurable. He makes himself available whenever needed and always has a pleasant and courteous disposition. Highly recommended.

new to the start-up world, i was very favorably impressed with jim dodrill - he guided us through the maze of requirements for a private placement memorandum, executed a truly professional document, was available for questions and well worth the expenditure. i would have no hesitation recommending his services as a business attorney.

I've had the pleasure of working with dozens of highly rated and qualified lawyers over the last 20 years and can comfortably say that Jim Dodrill is at the top of the class in his field. Regarding transactional securities law, I'm comfortable with the skill and knowledge exhibited by Jim. On average, his response time to me was excellent, but I marked average as it seems everyone in the firm didn't have the same experience.
It's difficult in this day to find quality, integrity, a fair price and accurate information you can rely on and with Jim Dodrill you find all of these qualities.
There is one point that I need to address as it will affect some and not all parties who need the services of a Securities Transactional lawyer and that is a large staff who can create documents and provide hand holding while their attorney is on other business. If this is the case, you might consider Jim as a primary lawyer and gain the support of another firm. If you have the time to work within his schedule to get your work done, you will be rewarded and I believe happy.
FYI, I'm not in the business of passing out referrals but Jim Dodrill is exceptional and I think that was worth sharing.

Jim Dodrill advised me on an employment agreement and a private placement investment I made in an early stage company. Jim's competent counsel helped me secure a fair agreement, and importantly, his knowledge and foresight allowed me to avoid and negotiate to change language that would have been harmful to my position. I highly recommend Jim's services.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jim over the last six years. He has advised me on at least six different companies. I have always found Jim to be professional, knowledgeable and responsive. His corporate and securities knowledge combined with practical business sense has assisted us in getting deals funded and filings completed expeditiously. Jim has never missed a deadline and has always been accomodating to get the job done when required. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim's services.

If you have the project that has the scalability, growth opportunity, and equities need and Jim has time in his schedule to take you on as a client - then don't hesitate and do it. I have had outside advisors and board members, as well as investors, comment on the thoroughness of his work. A very powerful member of our team.

Mr. Dodrill has been a very key ingredient to the ability for my company to not only get sound legal advice but legal advice that incorprates the needs of the bsuiness to function profitably and efficiently. Mr. Dodrill brings an excellent balance of business acumen with a strong securities experience to offer a depth of legal advisement well suited to bsuiness large or small. Our operations involved international customers and investors as well as complicated securities and Mr. Dodrill was well suted to handle all of the above.

James has been our SEC attorney since 2003. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the regulations, helpful when we had to deal with the SEC and responsive when we needed timely answers to questions. He has proactively contacted the SEC and NASD to help expedite matters that had been stalled by the government workers.
I also feel that he is actually concerned with success of our company and is willing to make unsolicited recommendations if he believes that it is in our best interest. I personally know and have worked with many attorneys, and rate him amount the top ones that I know. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending James to other businesses or individuals.
