I contacted Mr Frederick regarding Probate/Estate issues. I had no previous knowledge or experience with his firm, finding him through a Google search leading to his Avvo ratings. I was greatly impressed! He returned my calls very timely, was extremely down to earth, and helpful. I contacted him twice and each time had the same experience. He took time himself to return my calls. With his expertise, I was able to get answers to questions my family had including recommendations as to how to proceed with my Mother's Estate proceedings. He stated he didn't see the need for our family to retain and pay an Attorney for something we could do ourselves (in our situation), and further encouraged me to contact him again if necessary. I am confident in recommending him. With creditors beginning to contact us, he truly put our mind at ease!

Atty. James Frederick answered a question for me on Avvo and after several phone consultations, I hired him to assist with my father's small estate proceeding in Michigan. I don't live in Michigan, so my case needed special attention and constant contact at points. Over the course of 4 years (due to the nature of the case), Atty. Frederick was always available to me by phone, email, and also at one point readily agreed to travel 2 hours away to a hearing for the estate with minimal fuss. I was wary of handling the process remotely when my case started, but I can tell you that it was handled honestly, professionally, and for what I thought was a reasonable rate. If you are in the Livonia area (or anywhere in Michigan), and need any service that Atty. Frederick provides, you can not go wrong in at least speaking to him about it.

I can't thank James enough for the help that he gave to a loved one of mine. He is incredibly patient with convoluted situations and will take the time to understand your case.
We have dealt with a number of lawyers over the past three years and a lot of them have been more interested in closing the sale than really listening. James is completely the opposite of that approach. If you have some important matters that need attending to, I would strongly advise consulting with Mr Frederick.

Mr. Frederick was very helpful with helping me understand a law issue I am having. He was very direct and upfront with his answers. I would recommend his practice and advice. After my correspondence with him I feel more knowledgeable and more secure with my chosen course of action.

Mr. Frederick is a very helpful lawyer. He knows exactly how to get his job done. I needed help with my probate court paperwork when my uncle passed away, and I got all the information I needed from him. He gave me step by step information on getting it all done through my hard times. He is a kind and generous man. I would definitely recommend him to others for his excellent work.

I found James on this website. Knowing that I have little personal cash on hand, he reviewed my trust and advised me on possible courses of action free of charge; I genuinely admire his generosity and believe that he would extend the same helping hand to anyone in a position of need for his expertise. James showed himself to be knowledgeable, experienced, and level-headed and did not simply tell me what I wanted to hear, but gave me the "straight-dope" so-to-speak, which I respect and appreciate. He was also very prompt with his complementary help; I emailed him a copy of the document under discussion on Friday and on Monday he called me to discuss the pertinent issues. Overall, a great guy that I enjoyed interacting with, and I will certainly retain him should need arise in the future and would recommend him to others.

Over the past 4 years, James has helped me with a variety of legal issues including power of attorney, property transfers, and advise concerning estate matters.
I have consulted him to ask for advice on other legal matters. He has always been willing to help when he could - if he didn't have an answer for my question, he referred me to someone who had experience in that matter. Most recently, I had questions regarding an unclaimed property from the State of Michigan and sent him an email. His response to my email came within 30 minutes!
My experience with James allows me to trust him completely! He is caring, efficient, timely, fair, and a man of integrity. I have recommended him to several friends, and family, because of that trust and my experience.
