James prepared our family trust when my father was still alive. He took the parts of a broken, possibly invalid, definitely unenforceable trust (prepared by others) and turned it into a trust, that was valid, enforceable and accurate for what we needed to accomplish. He listened, advised, communicated and executed. James is a true professional in his field. After my father passed and everything went exactly as planned, I was fully confident in retaining James to prepare a will, trust, and estate plan for me. I would use his firm in the future and highly recommend him to others.

James has been our lawyer for 27 years and we are not interested in looking for anyone else. We've refered family members to him for their legal needs and they have been as pleased as us. He's done home sales, wills, trusts and answered all of our legal questions no matter how small. He is great, he's not out to get any and every penny from you , he is more interested in taking care of the client. He's laid back, does not put pressure on you to do something you're not comfortable with. He's great at explaining things and helping make decisions that are the best for you.
James is great!

James is a wonderful attorney who is very knowledgeable. I was in a situataion over my late husband's estate that had gone on far too long. Once I hired James the situation was resolved quickly and favorably. After I spoke with him the first time I knew this was a man I could trust and would get results.
