James is a very knowledgable lawyer. He is very thorough in his work and takes it serious. He explains things so that it's understood, and helps you throughout the process step by step. I would definitely recommend him. He's consistent and follows up in a timely manner. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease by his work ethic. You just know he will take care of you because he has your best interest at heart. His personality is amazing also. Blessed to have been directed to him for my case. LaDonna

Fast personal service that fights aggressively for your rights.
I can't say enough about this firm. I had false entry on my credit report and after dealing with a more local lawyer who moved at a snails pace for 6 months and never got the item off my actual report even after it was determined it wasn't legit. I sent my information to The Eason Law Firm and within a few short weeks I got the resolution I was looking for the previous 6 months with the other guy. I have limited experience with lawyers but James and his group are far more personal and speedy than any other I've dealt with before. They will aggressively fight for your rights to resolve the situation quickly and not drag out the situation for months on end.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2017.

Reciprocal - Stayed Suspension with Probation issued in IL, 2017
updated on 03/04/2019

This means the attorney did something wrong in another state, but can still practice law in Illinois. Typically in this case, the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

James's comment: “This stems from an altercation I had with another lawyer. He and I got into a shoving match.”

Suspension Stayed With Probation issued in MO, 2017
updated on 03/04/2010

This type of suspension means an attorney is technically suspended but may still practice law. The State monitors the lawyer's activities during the suspension to make sure that he or she does not repeat the behavior.

James's comment: “This stems from an altercation I had with another lawyer. He and I got into a shoving match.”
