I have had a bit of experience in hiring an working with attorneys in business. It is rare that Counsel provides a client with effort that meets and exceeds expectations.
I hired Attorney Amschler to help me as a plaintiff in a case involving unfair trade practices, fraudulent misrepresentation and breach of contract. I was up against a very high powered Washington DC law firm. The following are the reasons why Jim has earned my business, trust, confidence, and my highest rating, :
Prior to taking on my case, Attorney Amschler was committed to doing thorough research into the matter, the local statutes and practices of the court. Attorney Amschler presented me with practical information, which was well articulated giving me the confidence that he knew what he was doing and that had a clear method for developing a winning strategy.
After retaining Attorney Amschler. He spent a great deal of time reviewing the evidence for the case and writing a bulletproof complaint. There was no doubt in my mind that after judicial review of the pleadings the court recognized the merits of the case and swiftly moved the action forward because of real preparedness.
Throughout the the process of motions by the Defendants, Attorney Amschler provided leadership and calm resolve. He provided pinpoint accurate case law which refuted all of the defendants false claims. He also provided me with many more hours into my case than he billed.
In the end the defense folded in pretrial conference and my settlement was more than twice what I expected, far exceeding the original contract.
All I can say is "Thank you Jim!"

I used Jim as a business contracts attorney many times in my career. Jim Amschler knows the law, but more importantly he knows business. Jim understands that business needs and the law need not be at odds with each other, and he works hard to find ways towards a win-win solution. Ultimately, Jim Amschler goes out of his way to make sure that you, the client are provided prompt and superior service. I gladly recommend Jim to you.

I endorse this lawyer.I have known Jim since our days at Stanford Law School some years ago. He has been a friend, a colleague and a client (as corporate counsel). Jim is one of the brightest and toughest civil litigators I have come across, and it is my field too. He is decisive, relentless, always thinks of the client first, and shows excellent judgment and instincts in his strategic and tactical approaches to a problem or situation. He is consummate professional in the best sense of the word.
