Thank You
This is the Attorney you want representing you! Within his practice areas he can tell you the likely legal scenarios, based on extensive experience. He anticipated problems and took proactive steps to prevent them. His communication skills are thorough and exacting. He is kind, organized, and studious. No attorney is inexpensive, but he was frugal with my retainer money and honest about when I should and shouldn't go to court. With me he inherited a legal mess created by another attorney and fixed it with ease. He has continually exceeded every expectation. Jim, you have truly been a blessing at a time when I was feeling hopeless.

Satisfied client
Jim was referred to me by a friend and I approached Jim trusting my friends recommendation. After the first consultation I was convinced and decided that he was exactly the lawyer I needed who could represent my case. Jim was professional and compassionate. Phone calls, emails were returned promptly and all my questions were answered fully and knowledgeably. Jim cared and professionally guided me to take the right decisions that would be in my and my child's favor. Jim is very attentive, knowledgeable and uses simple common man vocabulary to explain the legal terms and verbiage. Paper work and documentation prepared by Jim for my case were detailed out to the minutest detail ensuring that my interests and case was concrete and met as per my expectations. I highly recommend his services.
