James never let me down. He has always told me the truth, worked with me and goes above and beyond to help me out in my situations! I was very nervous going into court, James made me feel a ease and guided me through the whole process. He is a wonderful choice!

You want a great lawyer, get James.
James provided the best possible representation one could hope for. Responsive, knowledgeable, and straightforward. Never once was I unaware of the situation I faced. Nor the possible outcomes. James always responded to any concern within the day, most often within the hour. I would recommend James well before any other lawyer.

Provided an exceptional outcome
First time ever cited or charged, so I was very anxious, particularly since the accusation was false. The first meeting James showed me he was on my side, indicating we will not accept the current accusation and he followed through, ultimately ending the ordeal with an adjudication. Thank you James.
