My husband and I recently hired Jim and we could not be more happy with his work ethic, values and genuine concern and care for our case. He was and still is, always available to answer our questions and emails. He is very experienced and reputable.

Jim was very thorough and kind to both me and my family. He does the job right, and makes sure that you completely understand the implications before moving forward. Both a lawyer and a friend, you can trust this man! One of his best attributes is his ability to listen to others and his genuine since of friendship. While being a great strategist at the same time, he is very quick to get things done and always stays on top of his work.

He refused to fight for me and my kids. He lied to me repeatedly throughout my case. He told me he subpoenaed people to testify for my side and did not. He charged me and additional $2500 for a 2 day hearing and refused to return any of it when he strong armed me into taking a very crappy deal after 2 hours into the hearing. He had no intention of presenting my case at the hearing. We had everything we needed to slam dunk the case. Since he didn't subpoena the people he told me he did, it would have just been my word against my ex. I had pych examiner, police, and more to testify. But again he didn't subpoena them. So we really had nothing to present. This was the 4th hearing. He refused to allow me to testify at any of the hearings.
Hiring him was the worst mistake I have ever made.

I endorse this lawyer. I met Jim more than 10 years ago when he was opposing counsel on a case I had. Jim was a tough, smart and committed lawyer who represented his client very well. At the same time, he was pleasant to work with, trustworthy and professional. Since that time we have had a few things together and he even served as special judge in a domestic relations case I had in another county. Jim was fair, objective and knowledgeable as a judge. Jim is a great guy and an awesome attorney who is truly committed to serving his clients.
