  • Matthew Robert Porter

    I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. James on a number of legal issues. He cares about the law and it shows. He is willing to go the exta mile for his clients and fight for them in court - something some lawyer's are afraid to do. All in all, I highly endorse Mr. James!
