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 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.
