I've known Jim Kraayeveld for many years and he has always been to the point, honest, and compassionate. Always a pleasure to speak with and he really knows what he is doing in the courtroom too. Jim has continued to support my case throughout years of frivolous litigation by my ex wife.

Jim is a trustworthy attorney who took the time to discuss any information that was not clear to me during my divorce process and settlement. He is conscientious about costs and presented several options to help reduce his time and fees.

Jim and his Team were quick and helpful to answer questions throughout the divorce process along with being clear on what to expect. Even though Jim was working in a county that he had not worked in before he handled himself confidently. It was also a blessing to know that there is a Christian believer in this type of work that will fight for what's right and best for the situation.
