Simply the best
I hired James for a personal injury case. He was there for my family and I during a very difficult time. He explained everything step by step and answered all our questions no matter how busy he was. James got us the results we deserved and I would recommend him to anyone. I would absolutely use him again!!

Great attorney and hard worker
Mr. Gay didn't stop until I was satisfied with my outcome. He kept in tune with every step, and made sure I clearly understood what was happening. He let me know how felt from a personal and professional stand point and I would recommend him and his firm to any and everyone.

Really Helpful
Mr. Gay did a great job for me when I was hurt in a car accident. He fully explained the process to me and dealt with the insurance company when they gave me a really hard time. If I ever need a personal injury attorney again (and I pray that I don't!) I will definetly be calling James Gay.

Defender of Justice!!!
Jim was very professional in his dealings with my case. He showed that his care for my needs were genuine. He was available at anytime. I would recommend him to everyone.... As a matter of fact I recommended him to my family. Jim is a fighter and wont give up when the insurance company tries to hard ball you. You won't go wrong if you go with James Gay!!!

Excellent Experience
I had the pleasure of having James as my attorney. He was able to explain everything in a manner that made sense and kept things moving forward. I had a great experience considering the circumstances of needed to hire a lawyer in the first place. He made me feel confident in the path we went on and the final resolution. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney and have recommended him to several people already.

THE best Immigration Law Firm
I hired Mr. Gay for an NIW case. It was a great experience working with him. Mr. Gray explains you in details everything you need to know and you feel safe about the result. Everything went really fast and in less than 3 months I had my green card. I certainly would recommend him. Thanks for the great work you did.
