I contacted Jim than immediately went to see him for the free consultation. Jim explained to me that under Colorado law my case was very good for winning my license back and at the very least it would be given with restrictions under Colorado Law. He told me he just had a case almost identical to mine and the license was received with no problem. I signed a contract with Jim and have him the flat rate of 1,200 dollars. When I showed up for my hearing there was no sign of Jim. I was greeted by Gary who informed me he was my attorney although I had never met him or hired him. Gary proceeds to tell me he's had two DUI's of his own and really understands my need to drive. This man knew nothing of my case so I proceed to inform him why we are here 10 minutes before we walk in. When he sees my hearing officer in the hall he says he has had issues with her and he sure hopes we do not get her. Of course this woman calls us in and while we are walking in Gary is muttering "Sh&$, Sh&$, Sh&$" under his breath. At this point I realize I am in a real bad comedy of which I am the star and it's going to cost me my license as well as 1,200 dollars. The officer refuses my license for an existing hold in Michigan 8 years prior and Gary says he doesn't agree with that and that was it. We get up. We leave. Gary is rushing to his car as I catch up and ask what happens next. Gary asks for my phone number which he doesn't have of course being he knows nothing about me and says he'll call. I call Jim immediately and he never responded. Gary did call actually to inform me that he knows a good lawyer for an Appeal and all I need to do is come up with another 1,500 dollars. I ask what I payed Jim Forseland 1,200 dollars for and he couldn't come up with a decent response and so he tells me he doesn't really know he is just an independent contractor. Every word of this is true. I've never written a review for a business in my life. I just thought at the very least I could try and help someone else. These guys are the Attorney equivalent of common street thugs. Save your money please. God knows you are already going through a bad time.

I have never been in trouble with the law--not even a speeding ticket. When I got a DUI, I was scared and very overwhelmed. Jim and his entire team (Gary and Bob) made me feel very comfortable and they were always there to answer any questions and walk me through everything regarding my case. I felt as if I was talking to friends (That were extremely knowledgeable). I would recommend Jim and his team to anyone that has found themselves on the wrong side of the law. They are there to help and will not judge. They also explain everything in layman's terms so I was able to understand what to expect throughout this process. They are also extremely reliable. Always on time and will answer e-mails and phone calls right away. Thank you, Jim!!! I guarantee I will never get another DUI, but if I do, I will call you. I appreciate you all :)

It started with one phone call. I had two years sober when I found Jim, finding a good job was proving to be difficult and I felt all I needed was one more chance. I searched the internet hoping to find that last chance and I came across Jim Forslund's web page and I called him the following morning. Jim was vary attentive and genuine when I explained to him my past driving history and that I was a multiple offender in my home state. After consulting with me about my case he explained to me the necessary steps that I would have to do on my end, assuring me he would be with me every step of the way - and that he was. Any time I needed to speak to Jim, he was right there for me. The proceedings went exactly as he explained. He was there to answer all of my questions all along the way. He consistently made me feel confident in the process - all the way to getting my license back. Jim proved to be an excellent attorney and someone who has a genuine want to help. Thank's Jim for facilitating the chance I needed it was a real game changer and I will be forever grateful.
