The first time I used James it was awesome I couldn't believe how well it went, he was very communicative at every turn he was well worth the $200.00 I was very happy with his service, and I recommended him in an email to everybody I knew that had a teenager and would be put in the same situation. The 2nd time around here just recently was about as polar opposite as the first time was as it could get. We ended up with Ken his partner whom is overwhelmed with cases and did not have the open line of communication we came to expect from the first go around with James. To be fair I did get a call from Ken after it was all said and done; after several more emails from my wife and myself expressing our displeasure and questioning the outcome of the last case. Ken did call me and apologized profusely for the lack of communication and explained his course of action in the case, I am completely satisfied with the outcome and would highly recommend the Law offices of James Mckain and Ken Tsiprin. Even with the lack of communication I believe these gentlemen are highly qualified and competent to irradicate most if not all Traffic violations for the best results for all concerned. I'm giving a fair rating for "Responsive" and "Kept me informed" because the last case was horrible in those departments but the first case was exemplary.

I hired J. McKain after reading good reviews about his services. But so far I have not been impressed very much. I have been having a hard time trying to get a hold of Mr. McKein. I never heard from him after I left voice messages and sent emails. I could talk to him only when I kept redialing his number and finally he answered. Took to me a few days to reach him. I am surprised he gets many good reviews with this kind of communication.

James represented me on two traffic infractions that were 2 years old. The court did not receive my original petition to dispute the tickets and instead went into collections and racked up over $1,000 in penalties. James was able to dismiss one of the infractions and reduced the other to a small $150 fine. He made himself available for all my questions, kept me informed throughout the complicated process and exceeded all my expectations with the final verdict. Highly recommend.
