Attorney James Fifelski is THE BEST attorney I have seen. Compared with previous three lawyers I worked with, two of who are “big names” somewhat, none of them can compare with Jim!
Jim is a really great problem solver! He is smart, diligent, and super-professional. He got my two cases dismissed in about two months!
As a native of china without any knowledge about US legal systems but faced rootless charges, I appreciate Jim’s great help so much because it made me fearless and confident.
He has a very accurate analysis for each count and always takes the right strategies to attack these so called charges.
He knows when to use motions to dismiss a count and when to fight in a trial to crack another elegantly.
He is a professional lawyer. However, he has been fighting for me like a best friend and a family member.
Jim is good at finding valuable information and evidence from your description and makes right estimation for your case.
Unlike another lawyer I worked with who is “famous” for his so-called zero-emotion and no-promise (he got a much worse result than I expected on my case but charged me much more expensive attorney fee), Jim told me clearly at the beginning that my case should be dismissed and he would fight for its dismissal. He said it, he did it, and he achieved it!
A real super-lawyer, highly recommend him without any reservation!

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Fifelski is a very vigorous advocate for his clients. He recently won an appeal in the Michigan Court of Appeals for one of his clients that will change Michigan law for the better. He also cares deeply about his clients, and is a very ethical attorney. I have referred many clients to him, and he has always done a great job for them.
