James Wright handles everything legal for us. We have him review all of our agreements and contracts. He handles our employee policies, credit applications, purchase orders, etc. That has turned into things like winning in court and actually collecting bad debts. Jimmy handles our workers comp to product liability. He recently won a case, including legal fees, for a lien placed against us because of the actions of a contractor that did not do the right thing. Jimmy is not only a powerful attorney; he is an honest and wonderful person. He always conducts himself in an ethical and professional manner. Jimmy also handles all of my family’s other business and personal legal issues. I would highly recommend him as the best of the best.
