Jim Schwebel is Extraordinary
Jim Schwebel is extraordinary. His experience and reputation are second to none. He is a dedicated and remarkable attorney. From day one to the end of the case, he listened, he kept me informed- returning calls and e-mails personally and without delay. He represented me exceptionally well. I felt confident and grateful to have Jim Schwebel on my side. He is truly an extraordinary person and a phenomenal lawyer. I can't thank him enough.
