Very Responsive Service, Seamless Process
I had a great experience working with Jim. He provided top notch service, was extremely responsive, and made the entire process of setting up a 501c3 extremely easy and efficient. Highly recommended.

Mr Sayre
Mr Sayre prepared the POA-HC and General POA for my mother. She was hospitalized and deteriorating. Mr Sayre heard my concerns and efficiently prepared the documents so our family could make her wishes known in the event that she can not. Thank you for the peace of mind. Well done.

Professional and Patient
Jim did a great job of answering all of our questions related to our living will. The GRL staff made me feel comfortable as soon as we arrived. Would highly recommend Jim for any living wills or real estate needs.

Quick and easy
My husband and I had been putting off getting our wills drawn up forever because we assumed it would be time consuming and we could never find the time. We were referred to Jim when we decided that we were finally ready and we’d have done this a lot sooner if we had realized just how easy and quick it would be! Jim also assisted with LLC paperwork. We had to bring our kids in with us to both meetings and Jim was understanding of this. We’d definitely recommend Jim!

FSBO
I am so beyond grateful for Jim's guidance, knowledge of the process, and always answering my unending questions when my husband and I decided to sell our own home. We were a bit nervous at first as to how long it would take to sell our home, but Jim alleviated any fears we had and helped walk us through the entire process step by step. He gave us great advice during negotiations to help us sell our home above our expectations. I would imagine that most people would consider selling your own home to be a high-stress situation, but Jim certainly made it so much less stressful for us. I would highly recommend hiring Jim when you decide you want to put your house on the market. You won't regret selling your home FSBO and the numerous savings you are afforded because of it!

We Won!!!
Something as simple as my ex signing my refinance papers to remove him from a house we bought together when we were dating turned into a huge stressful mess. James did an excellent job working my case to make sure we won and we sure did!!! Signed my refinance yesterday and boy does it feel good. Thank you James for your hard work.

James Sayre
James was everything and more for what we needed in guiding us on what we needed to get my parents affairs in order. James was professional and completed all documents when he said they would be done. James handled a difficult situation with compassion and ease.

Professional, Knowledgeable and Caring
I can't thank attorney James Sayre enough for his help during a very overdue need in my life. James's knowledge and experience of the law eased my stress and anxiety throughout the entire process. His personal and approachable demeanor made me feel comfortable and not so overwhelmed. He took a genuine interest in my well-being. Throughout the entire process I was always well informed, my phone calls promptly returned and all my questions and concerns were addressed. Thank you James for your outstanding job in representing me in my divorce. It was truly a pleasure working with you!
