The one to pick! Look not farther!
Look no farther if you need a lawyer in his area! You could tell he knew most of the people at the court house and this was his ball court! He did exactly what he said he could do! We spoke with several lawyers and the majority said it was impossible to get done what Mr. Haupt did. 5/5 100%

Stop searching and call this guy
Jim Houpt was a very professional attorney during my court case. I was involved in a domestic violence case that he could have had dropped but I chose a different route for personal reasons. Then after the case he went the extra mile to help with things that were on the back burner. He has helped out multiple friends of mine in cases far worse than mine with also positive outcomes. He may not answer your phone calls but he will return text messages. You have to remember you're probably not his only client a text message gets things done phone calls intrude on getting things done. He even took time on Christmas Eve to resolve a different matter that was not part of the case. Thank God for lawyers like Jim Houpt.

The best lawyer you can choose
Mr James Haupt Jr is what any and all attorneys should strive to be. He is honest, straightforward, motivated, and dedicated to providing the best defense to his clients. The only thing that is required of you is to be honest with him. Mr. Haupt has an excellent work ethic and moral compass that shows in everything he does. The recommendation of Mr Haupt to me as my attorney has been blessing to my family and me. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. James Haupt Jr to anyone in need of legal help.

Fantastic Attorney
First and foremost, disregard any negative reviews you may have seen or read about Attorney Haupt... they could not be more beyond the scope of reality. None of them are even close to relevant according to my experience. I have had to use other lawyers in my life for other circumstances and they were great. But, Jim was the best. He went above and beyond when I needed him the most. He would ALWAYS call me back and / or reply to my texts. He even has texted me way after normal working hours to update me on my case. He also worked on my case all hours of the day and night. He also took my call and met me on a Sunday for a consult. He is aggressive and a fantastic negotiator. That only happens if you know the facts and proof of the case, in which he did. Not only did his hard work get me the lowest penalty possible but he was extremely down to earth and personable the whole time. God forbid I never need a criminal defense lawyer again, but if I did, he would be the first person I would call. Even after my case was resolved, he still answers my calls if I need advice. Not only is he a great attorney but he is a great person. I am genuinely grateful I was even able to meet him. I say good luck in finding a lawyer with all of those qualities. If you are in need for an impeccable attorney, he is the perfect candidate. Also remember, we all make mistakes and that does not define who we are as human beings. Stay strong, confident, positive, and call Jim Haupt today!

Glad I choose Mr. Haupt
Excellent attorney. Went above and beyond to help myself and a few others I’ve referred to him over the last couple years. It can be tough getting ahold of him on the phone sometimes but he would always got back to me in a timely manner and let me know what was going on with my case. Will continue to recommend!

Professional
I’m not writing this review because I got a great outcome, I am writing this because I’ve been in trouble before and Mr Haupt from the beginning told me what might happen from good to bad. He retuned every call, and believe me I called a lot more than I should of, he made it convenient for me when I wasn’t able to drive, and was always truthful when I asked questions. He did everything possible to fight for the best possible outcome and he got it! So even if I would not have gotten what I wanted i would still rate him the best attorney professionally and as a person. There is no bad thing I can say and would hire him again ,god forbid , if I ever get in trouble and would recommend him to anyone who is in trouble.

Professional caring and works with you for payment
Mr. Haupt cared about our case from day one. He worked with us on our Payments and made sure we knew what to expect. I have used two other local attorneys but he is the real deal.

Super sweet man. Keeps it all the way real with you. He has always been willing to help with payment plans in order to make things financially possible. He keeps yoo updated and is always available for questions or concerns. Definitely would recommend.

So far so good
Whomever gave him a bad rating must just be mad because his case was unwinnable. This guy is responsive and available. You don’t need to call your attorney every 20 minutes people! He took my case at the last minute - we have an uphill battle but I have 5 tons of weight off of my shoulders !

Attorney that truly cares
James Haupt has represented me on several different issues that I have had to face. Each and every time he has kept me well informed and the outcome has always been a positive one for me. I have recommended Mr. Haupt's services to a number of friends and family and I have always garnered thanks and appreciation from them for doing so. This is an attorney that not only cares about the outcome for his clients, but truly cares about his clients well being. Thank you Attorney Haupt.

Keep looking for a better attorney -this one isn't good
James talked a good story but he didn't fight for us. He was late to court dates or postponed. He advised to plead guilty telling us house arrest and we ended up with 2.5 years mandatory prison and revoked license for life. It was an accident that took a life but no drugs or alcohol and it was not reckless driving. But our attorney didn't try to prove any of that. Dont use this guy. Keep looking

Don't even bother
James Haupt is the epitome of unprofessionalism. We hired him to represent my brother in a DUI case and he lied constantly. He never answered his phone and when he got back to us, he was always beyond rude. He even failed to show up to my brother's court dates when he needed to. Do not waste your time and money.

Save your money you’re literally throwing it away
Attorney Haupt talks a big case when you first meet him... don’t buy it! All the rules he stated to me about an OVI that would cause my case to be thrown out or at the very least reduced he didn’t even file with the court. I had to constantly ask for driving privileges, ask about things posted on my case online he seemed to know nothing about. He flat out lied that he filed for suppressing evidence and filed for a witness narrative when he didn’t. He made a lot of promises of phone calls, meetings, filings and then I go to court and get state mandatory minimum anyway. If it’s your first offense you’d represent yourself better. Maybe in a few years when he gets some more experience and builds better relationships at the courthouse he’ll serve the community better. I really feel he dropped the ball and sometimes didn’t even remember about my case. Very dissatisfied. He offered me a refund but then ran out of the courthouse before I could actually collect it from him lmao. Surprise surprise !

Lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name
If your searching for an attorney. Hit back a few times and start your search over. Jim Haupt is the worst attorney I have ever dealt with. Promises you things that should be easy to get yet fails to. Shows up late and unprepared to court. Makes you look bad due to the fact he's so unprofessional. I thought because of his ability would justify the price he charged, and back up the promises he made. He'll ruin your case to the point when you look for another attorney they won't touch it for any amount of money because they don't want the loss to tarnish his reputation. Take my word for it find someone else. Or regret not doing it when it's to late like I did!

You had to call him to ask about a court date the day before...he would not contact you at all or keep you informed. He had no clue and had to contact us back to verify thinking it was on another day. Not to mention the fact he lied and would not even look into your case or know anything about it until the day you are suppose to be in court, right before you would walk in, and that's if he wasn't late. He would tell you a positive outcome of what things might be and all be the opposite.
