This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Mr. James Spokes is rigorous, responsible, professional, and worthy of your choice
Mr. James Spokes is a criminal lawyer who deserves a five-star rating. He is very well versed in defending defendants against criminal charges. He read my entire file carefully and answered my questions with great patience, I appreciate him from the bottom of my heart, his serious, responsible and professional attitude made me feel at ease and his prices were very reasonable. God bless and pray for all who read this review, as I know you feel the same way I do. He is certainly someone who fought for me, even though there are not many people who are this down to earth and do real work. If you happen to feel desperate, or in deep trouble - don't waste any more time calling other lawyers. Make this your first and last call, and I can assure you that you will not regret it.
