Jim fought hard for me from day one. I was arrested two years prior to hiring him for an OWI, with roadside PBT of .088 and blood draw of .108. I was never notified of the case against me and found out during a traffic stop about an outstanding warrant. Jim was wise and comforting and stepped right in to squash the warrant and immediately began working on my case. Jim put all of my anxiety to ease by keeping contact with me and including me in every step of the case. Losing this case would have put my professional license at risk and could have cost me my job, however Jim was able to put together a strong motion using the facts of the case which resulted in the case being dismissed. Thank you Jim you saved my life!

I not only had a great experience with Jim but also got exceptional results. I had retained Jim immediately after my consult with him. As I was sitting in his office explaining my predicament to him, Jim thoroughly listened to my story and provided insight on possible various outcomes, depending on the judge assigned to our case. Jim is not only well known but also highly respected in Oakland County Courts and upon entering court for the first time with him, this was very evident. As a client Jim not only made me feel at ease, but also made it feel like we have known each other for years and were family. It is apparent that Jim is in this field of work because he is passionate about the law as well as his clients, and unlike other attorneys, monetary gain is not at the forefront. Jim is extremely humble and down to earth, he does not make you feel like any less of a person because of the situation you are in. I have been in trouble with the law in the past but I have never experienced such extraordinary results like I did with this case. I cannot thank Jim enough for all his hard work. He honestly is the best in this field and I would recommend him any and everyone!

I was accused by my Ex-wife of felonious assault and other accompanying charges, and appointed a public defender. Knowing that I was innocent, I tried to proceed to go to trial with the public defender. About a week before my trial the public defender contacts me to inform me that I had missed a court date, despite my many many calls and messages, At that point I decided to go with a PRO! I had Mr. Amberg's card in my wallet from a few years back when I meet him in a parking lot, so I gave him a call. Mr. Amberg asked me to give him the brief version of what happened and my charges. After hearing the short version Mr. Amberg was very excited and advised me to retain him so that we could go to trial and beat these charges. immediately Mr. Amberg went to work, taking pictures, asking questions, sending out subpoenas, and turning a client into a friend. After setting new trial dates and getting me to understand what I am up against, Mr. Amberg was at full throttle. We went to trial, and for the first time since this has started, I wasn't nervous. Needless to say that after Mr. Amberg began to defend me in court, I was acquitted of all charges! Mr. Amberg is very passionate about his clients, he will educate you on you specific case, he will NOT just give in and leave you at the mercy of the prosecutor. I wish I could give more detail and let you all know in words what a mess I was in, however I can tell you with all honesty that with Mr. Amberg I felt like a client not a criminal.

He let me know everything that was going on the whole way, At the start he asked me if the jury was ok or if I had any questions. While the whole thing was in motion he made sure I knew what was going on and if I had any questions for the people on the stand. He made sure I had copies of the things I needed He told me from the start not to worry he would take care of it and he did. THANKS JIM FROM RICK

I emailed Jim during the night in a state of panic after being arrested for reatail fraud. He called me promptly the next a.m.,offered advice & adjusted his schedule so we could meet immediately. He treated me with such kindness & compassion, gave me great proactive resources to get in touch with & had a plan before I left his office. Jim was always available via text,phone & email. He answered any question & kept me updated w/any changes. He even showed up for my hearing ng when he had pneumonia. His respect & skill in the TOUGH district court I was in helped to get my charge reduced along w/ my probation. He is the "best ever " & I am so grateful for all his help & ,, kindness & humor .

Not guilty verdict on DWI charge despite 0.12 breath reading and an accident. Jim spent the time to understand all the facts including other causes of the accident, procedural missteps by the officers, and medical issues casting doubt on the 0.12 reading. Then he masterfully led the jury through those issues, including an admission by the officer that the medical issues nullified the 0.12. (without requiring expert testimony.) Jim is able to be polite and collegial with all parties, including the prosecution, while still strongly challenging them - very effective with the jury.

Oh my Goodness....Jim Amberg saved our son from wrongful felony charges from a so called friend. The police never investigated the charges as it turns out but Jim Amberg being the 'tracking dog' like attorney that he is...he worked and worked to 'sniff' out the real truth!!! That truth literally saved our son not only from a prison sentence but also saved his record for life!!! Not only is he a great attorney but he is a real hands on/down to earth guy that anyone can easily communicate/relate to!

Not only do I recommend Jim, I'd actually solicit clients for him because it is like doing a public service. This man understands the legal system, knows all of the judges, prosecutors, knows his way around the court house personnel. Jim makes it his personal mission to understand and care about his clients, truly cares about not only how he is going to win your case., but how he can encourage his clients to turn things around, to a better/smarter lifestyle choice. He took a drunk driving arrest and the guy didn't even get probation, no blowing….Other defendant were trying to get hid number. I'm glad he was our attorney!

I used James services in a case for my 20 year old son . My son had been charged with armed robbery worngful inprisonment . James put out very insightful briefs . My son had a bond set we payed it had him out for almost 2 months he was doing good . The case got turned over from district court to circit court our draw of judges we got the toughest one he revoved my sons bond but that didnt bother James he just said i have to make sure i dot all my i's and cross all my t's filed a motion right away he had my son back out in a week in a half which is unheard of getting judge Callahan to turn a decision but James got it done . The ending to the case my son was sentenced with just robbery given hyda and only recived 6 months in salvation army and porbation and drug testing when he gets out . James became like family to use he is VERY THROUGH very well spoken did a better job than expected . James is an OUTSTANDING lawyer .

Excellent defense attorney. Jim defended me in a drinking & driving case and we won. He is very experienced in this area of law. He explained every issue and every step along the way through my case. He responded promptly when I called with questions and met with me regularly to prepare me and my case.
