The Best of A very Bad Situation
I hired James for a divorce case I was going through. it's no secret at all now stressful and aggravating Divorce cases can be especially with kids and bitter feelings being involved. When I first met James and talk to him on the phone, I knew from the first conversation that he was the one to represent my interest. And within days of getting hired completely turned what I thought was a hopeless situation all the way around to where it was not only equal but fair. Through our entire process he was the calming voice in my head continuously reminding me of the importance of staying calm and no matter what trying to make things better with the mother of my child for the sake of the children. In the end I was very satisfied with his work and would recommend him to anyone. and if I ever need these services again, he's the very first I'm calling.

The Law Offices of James Nicodemus
Caring, positive, supportive and informative. These are the qualities that James possesses. He makes you feel hopeful in all kinds of situations. He knows legalities as best as one could. He restores confidence when necessary. Or sails enough with his own confidence to make you confident that any job he has to do for you will be handled expertly. He is a cut way way above the rest. Trustworthy and beyond kind. Thank you, James for all that you do.

Nothing short of excellent.
James has been my real estate attorney for the past 15 years he's done over 10 closings for me and every time he's been nothing short of excellent. Some of the things that I I love about James is that he's very detailed and on top of things. His knowledge and experience really puts me at comfort when dealing with the a real estate transaction. I would definitely recommend James and will definitely continue to work with him.

Excellent Real Estate Attorney
James worked with my closing on a new home this past April. James is a knowledgeable professional who worked with me to negotiate a contract that was a little more complicated than an average home purchase. I could not be happier with the services James has provided. He is on my contact list of professionals to recommend.

Great attorney!
I worked with James a few times as his client, selling my properties; I also had been working with him as a Real Estate Agent, and he took a great care of my clients, both sellers and buyers. He is very reliable, knowledgeable, detail oriented and available when you need him. Highly recommend!

Great service and a huge help!
James was my real estate attorney on my home purchase last year. As it was my first home purchase I was not sure about processes, paper work, etc.... James was very thorough in walking me through everything to ensure I was comfortable. He even was very willing to and did action my requests and negotiations with the sellers. Even after closing he still has been here for me to get information/action requests in regards to the sale of the house.

Outstanding Real estate Attorney
I was in the process of searching for a home. I didn't really have any information as to who was and wasn't an outstanding attorney that would be user friendly, knowledgable and compassionate about their clients. So when I was ready to purchase my home I contacted my nephew and he referred me to James Nicodemus. I called James and he responded immediately. I explained my situation to him and he stated," no problem." He is extremely astute of the contractual jargon and explains it in a way that makes you comfortable with him as your attorney. I would highly recommend him when purchasing real estate. He leaves no stone unturned and makes sure that his clients are very satisfied. He is the man for the job when acquiring real estate.

THE BEST
I was very fortunate to find attorney James to close my first house. I had a few bumps along the way from the other side but because of James i had a good outcome. He bent over backwards to solve everything. His extensive knowledge and long time experience in the field is outstanding. Very quick to respond and explained every detail thoroughly. He is very compassionate and professional. There is no other lawyer that is as good as him in my opinion. Highly recommended!!!

Professional,
Attorney Nicodemus was instrumental to the closing of our Real Estate transaction. He was responsive, provided regular updates to ensure we knew what was going on, and made sure our best interest was first. He ensured both parties met milestone, kept their word, and documented any changes to the contract. His professionalism and knowledge are unrivaled.

Excellent attorney
James is an outstanding attorney. His professionalism and competence make his work worth every penny. His communication skills are exceptional and he is always quick to reply and quick to act. Throughout each case with James as my attorney he ensured that I was informed and up to date about each step he took in defending my side. I could tell that he was sincere in his work and had a genuine drive to defend my interests. During a difficult time while attempting to get a security deposit back from a stubborn landlord, James was able to quickly and efficiently defend my case and aid me in getting my money back. I also used him in many real estate closings through the years. I am very impressed with the work of James Nicodemus as an attorney and highly recommend him to all.

Realtor
James is one of the best attorneys in Chicagoland - when he is not available or due to my clients using there one - James outranks almost everyone other attorney I've worked with as a realtor - James due diligence, attorney review, knowledge of real estate law, connections with foreclosure attorneys makes him an asset for my clients! Pricing is very fair and resonable and for me he is a very valuable asset to my team of professionals for my buyers or sellers who use his services!

Very competent and thorough attorney
I just had my closing completed with Mr. Nicodemus and wanted to share how impressed I was with his services during the process. I strongly recommend that you go with this attorney for your real estate transactions. He is very patient, thorough, VERY competent and client-minded. I had issues with my first RE agent on this transaction and he personally interfaced with the agent's broker to get me a better agent. He recommended a very knowledgeable and experienced home inspector to me, so I did not have to rely on anonymous on-line reviews. He made sure that every cent that had to be credited to me during the closing was accounted for and patiently reviewed every page of the RE file that I had to sign. I did not feel that I was rushed or that some information was not presented to me thoroughly. He actively defended my interests against the other side during closing. There was no back-room dealing with the other side's attorney to get the transaction processed as fast as possible. He insists on your terms with the other attorney and you see that he does it sincerely. I honestly felt that the man earned every cent of his attorney fees, which are surprisingly reasonable. I felt I got a deal :-) Overall, very nice, upbeat guy who works to make sure that you are satisfied with his services. You sense that his clients' satisfaction is important to him and he puts in the time and effort to make sure that your interests/concerns are met on the best possible terms. On the final note, he is quick to respond to calls/e-mails. I never felt that my questions were not getting proper attention. Toodles :-)
