Top notch attorney!
I hired Jim as my divorce attorney. BEST decision I could of ever made! Professional, confident and honest are just a few words that represent Jim. Divorce is difficult within itself however Jim and his team genuinely cared about not only me but my sweet little girls. Jim had answers to all my questions. I was never left to be worried with any circumstance that arose and believe me there were plenty. His team listens, shows compassion, advises, cares and is just there for you. I felt important and taken care of. I have nothing but the upmost respect for Jim and the entire firm he works for. I am more than happy with my end results. I am and always will be grateful for Jim and his team. Always.

Awesome!
Jim is very straight forward and does exactly what needs done. He's polite and professional and is someone who puts his clients first and makes them feel like they have a voice. I will continue to use Jim for everything in the future.

Ethical, Competent, and Responsive to needs
I retained this attorney's services on two separate matters and he consulted on one matter for me. In each of my dealings with Mr. Hinchliff he was professional, personable, ethical, empathetic and highly responsive in communicating with me on every issue. Even after moving out of state 700 miles away from Iowa, I chose him to represent me on me matter because of the exceptional work and services he's always delivered previously. He will always answer every inquiry honestly, advising you of your best options in the matter, provide his insight and counsel and in the end understands that the decision made is ultimately yours. He will not waste your time or money. Above all he is honorable and respectful in how he treats his clientele. Regardless of the how large or small your need might be, he makes it his priority to handle every request in the most efficient manner. If you are looking for peace of mind in the midst of storm, look no further.

"I endorse this lawyer. As an attorney who practices in a different area of law it’s important to have good lawyers to refer current and for never clients and friends and family to. I have never received anything but positive feedback about James and his work product. I recently received an email which described him as compassionate, caring and knowledgeable. She stated that, while he didn’t always tell her what she wanted to hear, he always told her what she needed to hear. More than that he took the time to explain why."
