My case was a pending criminal case, a rather difficult one. Jim had to sort through lots of fictitious statements, and solve puzzles that required much dedication and assistance. He and his coworkers made an incredibly scary & stressful situation tolerable. He had ample knowledge, and dedication to myself and the case.
Jim believed in me and treated me like a person, when many at the time did not. His staff was proper and quick to respond to my inquiries. Jim made himself available at all times when I needed to ask questions... Day or Night. And went above and beyond many expectations. All I can say is, I cannot thank him enough.
He was knowledgeable in so many areas, and had a team to consult any non-certain territories.
I would highly recommend using him to anyone going through a difficult situation, needing a strong defender on your side. He is a valid attorney and asset.

In 2007, I was wrongly accused of a first degree felony that could have potentially incarcerated me for a maximum of thirty years. I feel extremely fortunate to have received a referral for Mr. Dirmann to take my case, and he agreed. He and his investigative staff worked tirelessly to put together a professional defense on my behalf. His work was so thorough and comprehensive that The State dropped all charges and the case never went to court. Mr. Dirmann allowed me to be fully involved with my case and was very accessible throughout the duration. Not only did I respect Jim in his professional role, but we became friends and continue to meet several times a year to discuss how our families are doing.
I strongly recommend Mr Dirmann’s professional services to anyone in need of a defense attorney.

I can not say enough about the time and effort Mr Dirmann put into my case. He explained things thoroughly to ensure I understood what was happening every step of the way. His expertise and understanding of my plight truly helped to put me at ease. I hope I never find my self in the same situation but, if I do I know who my first call is going to be.

Jim is highly respected for his knowledge, his ethics, and his dedication to his clients in our legal community. You are in very good hands hiring Jim Dirmann for a Criminal Defense or Personal Injury matter.
