Bill James law firm is the best
I hired this firm to represent me in a case of "wrong place, wrong time" arrest where i had my concealed weapon seized. They was able to get my charges dropped and i got my weapon returned to me. They always kept me informed of proceedings and outcomes. I highly recommend this firm for anyone charged with a felony.

Did an excellent job!!!
The James Law Firm showed me compassion, they were very interested in solving my issue with an outcome I would be happy with. Communication was excellent, they were on top of things and kept me updated on the progress. The Jame’s Law Firm did an excellent job and I would highly recommend them.

Expert
I hired Mr. James for two specific cases. He is very thorough in his fact finding, He was referred to me by friends that have used Mr. James and received top rated results. I was happy with his updates to me and the results that I received!

Handles Business
Long story short: I was in a divorce and was getting pressured to quickly sign paperwork by the other party. I was referred to Mr. James by a friend and he quickly notified me that I was basically getting ripped off. He handled all of the logistics and took care of me and my assets during the divorce. I would use him over and over again. Highly recommend him and his firm.

Responsive and Quick
One thing you do not want when a legal issue arises and having it dragged out. My issue was small but taken care of quickly and effectively. The quality of timelines is of the upmost importance when there is a legal issue. They know that and make even your small issues their priority.

Ticket issued for speeding
I was pulled over in a small town heading home from a long day of work and got issued a ticket for speeding that was going to be pretty costly. My first call when I got home was to The James Law Firm. They immediately started working on it for me and within a few days they had my ticket reduced to a civil penalty. Thanks to them I still have a spotless driving record! Absolutely would recommend them to anyone
