Great man and great attorney
If you want a attorney that will keep you informed and make the process of any legal need go smoothly and quickly then Jim is your man. He is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever spoken with. I wouldn't think of anyone else to represent me.

He is the BEST of the BEST!
This lawyer is the best. He even spent all weekend looking over our custody case right after his new baby was born. He came up with creative ways to call my husbands ex wife out. She didn’t get away with nothing this guy is determined to win. He cares about his clients And makes you feel like family. He even texted us over the weekend before our court date to make sure things were in order. I Recommend Jim Sharon Bearden Jr to anyone. He was persistent In court and also gave us a laugh calling her out! Thank you so much for your good work Jim! Your the best!

Excellent Lawyer!
I was 18 years old and a soon to be senior in highschool when this incident happend, I had plans for college. All of my hope for the future was gone when I had gotten charged with a felony. I'd never be accepted into college, never have a decent job, I had no hope. No one would listen to my side, I went into Mr. Bearden's office and he genuinely cared, even before he had the first payment in his hand. He got the result I wanted, and achieved what everyone thought was impossible, he got the felony pled down to a misdemeanor. He gave me a second chance at life. I would recommend Mr. Bearden to anyone, he honestly cares, and will give you his best efforts to get the results you want.

Easy to work with
I'm out of state, my sister is in Texas serving time. He has made correspondence very easy. He responds to our questions and concerns very quickly. He eliminates obstacles that are daunting to deal with. I am very confident that my sister is in his hands and I know that she will be treated kindly and fair.

Excellent lawyer!
Best lawyer I have ever seen. Took on the State of Texas and handily defeated them in my DUI trial. He posseses big city attorney skills with a small town charm. He is a straight shooter and will advise you truthfully on matters. He HATES to lose!!!!! Would recommend him to anyone.

A fantastic lawyer and outstanding guy!
Has always been there for me at the drop of ah hat. Takes care of people like no other attorney I know. I mean he left his office to bond me out today and then took me out for a beer. Like I said the man is just a ture good hearted American. I would suggest to anyone to look him up.

Vacation wreck
Jim Sharon Bearden is one of the most down to earth lawyers I've ever known. He and his staff are very caring and compassionate . They have a friendly Southeast Texas attitude and smile every time you walk in the door. Jim actually had to deal with Colorado laws to help me with my case. He did a fabulous job and I couldn't have been happier. I've known Jim for quite some time, but this is the first time he actually represented me. I would recommend Jim to anyone, friends or family.

Jim Sharon Bearden: Honest, Integrity, Loyal
Jim Sharon Bearden dealt with a minor employment non-compete that I was dealing with at the time. Although his expertise may not rest with this type of law, it proves his ability to argue and use his talents to make certain my interest were covered in this situation. He was flexible and had time no matter when I called. He is a true family man that is loyal to serving his community and ideally wants to make certain that he leaves this world better than when he found it. I would recommend Jim Sharon for ANY legal matter that you or your family were having to deal with.

Highly Recommend Jim Sharon!
Jim Sharon Bearden helped me with a business situation. I found him to not only be trustworthy, responsive and knowledgeable, he was also caring. My personal situation was something that was very upsetting and complicated. He sifted through the complication and was able to help me handle a situation that otherwise I am not sure would have been resolved. I hope I don't have to hire an Attorney in the near future but if I do it will be Jim Sharon. Also, I have recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Awesome job on helping me with my Truck Repo Lawsuit.
After 16 years of being self-employed It was the drought in 2011 that started sinking me and I could not keep up with my truck note. After paying on it for four years it was finally repoed. It wasnt a good feeling, yet I thought they would finally leave me alone, only to have a knock at the door one day and served papers stating that I was being sued by the credit union. I had a choice to make so I started making phone calls. As soon as I told Jim what had happened he immediately had a plan and told me my options. From worse to best case scenario. I payed my fee and hired him on the spot. Not to mention that I do live in Houston and did everything via phone. Bottom line is that I never had to leave Houston and the case was dismissed with out me being there. It was money well spent and I will use him and his recommedations on anything that may come up in the future. Great work Mr Bearden and thank you!!

Best decision I ever made!
Jim Sharon provided sound advice during a devastating period in my life (divorce). He took care of everything (property value, child custody, child support) with experience, commitment and integrity. He made the entire process as painless as possible. I would recommend Jim Sharon to anyone in the need of an attorney.

Registered Nurse
Jim Sharon is a fantastic lawyer. It is my opinion the best title for him is not Attorney at Law, but rather, problem solver. Jim Sharon was willing to listen and take stock in my, huh, rather interesting and unique dilemma when I was unable to acquire the assistance from others. Jim Sharon has a flawless work ethic. This coupled with his desire and competitive personality scores him well when compared to his peers. I am thankful to have the assistance and guidance of Jim Sharon. It is with great honor and without reservation that I recommend Jim Sharon as your next "problem solver."
