From 2001 to 2004, James was also the Chase County, Nebraska, Attorney, where he prosecuted criminal offenses and represented Chase County in numerous civil matters, including the issue of whether to grant a special use permit to a significant hog confinement facility.

Patience
James and Denise are an amazing team. They took what I considered to be an impossible situation and turned it into a possible situation ending in settling out of court. James is highly experienced and is more skilled than the two attorneys I hired prior.

Attentive and Compassionate
James got us handed off to him when our original attorney moved due to a family emergency. He kindly took on a very difficult case and did extensive research to yield the best results for our case. I could not be more pleased with the attention and compassion he showed us during this difficult time. James is a Rockstar!!!

James is excellent he answered all our questions and did not pressure us to make a decision he let us way all of our options and come to a conclusion on our own. He was also very available in the evening hours to speak with us which was extremely helpful.

GREAT ATTORNEY!
I was going through a very difficult custody situation and felt I had very few options. I contacted Mr. Bocott about my situation and he made a world of difference for me and my children. He is very easy to talk to and his partner Denise was very helpful as well. I had doubts about the situation, but Mr. Bocott gave my children the best chance to have their voice heard and I will always be grateful for that. He deserves 5 stars for being professional, and a great source of knowledge and for being as helpful as they were to my case. Thank you for all your help!

Bankruptcy
We needed a lawyer to handle our bankruptcy. James Bocott was referred to us and we both found him very component to handle our account and get the creditors off our backs. If we ever needed a lawyer again, we wouldn't hesitate to contact James.

James is there for his clients. When I went in to file for divorce he was very caring and understanding. He answered my questions. He gets back with you in a timely manner and I feel you know what’s going on each step of the way.

Knowledgeable and compassionate above expectation.
James and Denise walked me through every step of the bankruptcy process and answered every question to complete satisfaction. Their follow up support is also second to none. Any future legal support I might need will be procured from them. They have my business.

James has been great to work with from the beginning! I was so nervous and I felt ashamed even having to call to make the initial appointment let alone have to walk in his office and meet him. I shouldn't have been nervous at all! Both James and his office manager, Denise have just been fabulous to work with. They have always made me feel comfortable and have answered all of my questions even when I ask them over and over. I'm always made aware of any type of change or information that is going on with my case. They make sure I understand every step of the way what is going on in my case. I highly recommend James Bocott as an attorney! Geri

patient and thorough
I'll admit, you do have to be patient, but James is thorough and has provided me with steady guidance through a divorce which was ugly, dirty, and nauseating. He was reasonably priced and had a terrific secretary, Denise, who was wonderful support as well!

James has been an advocate of me since the beginning of my divorce. He always focuses on me completely in our meetings. He explains in such ways so you know exactly what is happening. I would recommend him to anyone going through a divorce and child custody plans.
