Very Impressed
We retained James to handle a serious traffic matter for our son as we live out of state. It was very stressful being so far away and we felt helpless until a friend recommended James. We found him to be extremely hard working and always available to discuss the case. James was a tough negotiator when he needed to be and even in the midst of Covid he was tenacious in fighting for a fair deal. We are very pleased with the outcome and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend James Lee!

Great experience and service
Since the very first time I was able to talk to James about my situation he was 100% willing to help me no matter what the situation was. From the beginning to the end he was always there to answer all my questions advice me and work for my best interest. What I liked the most out of working with James was his commitment he had, and his honesty. Communication was excellent as well, he would always call me to give me an update of the case and I didn't feel that I didn't know what was going on. Overall, a great experience and a great person to work with

James Lee Attorney
This was my first time to get medical treatment for a car accident. I was confused and did not know what to do. James Lee took me step by step, very clearly through the case. He always answered my questions thoroughly and kindly. He also helped me get a satisfactory amount of pocket money for my injuries. He finished my case neatly and efficiently professional.

Excellent work James Lee
James Lee with Liberty Law has done an excellent job helping and assisting my family with multiple issues this year. Just when i thought my world was crashing James stepped in and was able to get multiple charges reduced or even dismissed. I greatly appreciate his time and commitment in helping my family during this rough time. Thanks again James!

Great experience!!
The experience I had from Liberty law was amazing! I have hire James twice for the case that I have been charge. Through out those experience of getting an ticket was rough. But having James as attorney, he was able to get those charge handle perfectly as I wanted and conform like a doctor not to worry too much about the case. I'm just bless to be able to know a lawyer like him that able to reach out for the people that needs help. I'm looking forward to hiring him again for sure, to help me to be come citizen.

Very Impressive
We hired James to represent us in a matter involving our adult son. He was very attentive, noted our concerns and thoroughly investigated the matter. He was ultimately able to strategically negotiate a plea of abeyance deal that was above and beyond what we had hoped for. He was very efficient and prompt in communicating with us, kept us informed, and was on time and prepared for each Court hearing. He charged a very reasonable fee for his services. James is a competent professional, and we would recommend him to anyone for legal help. We consider him our lawyer, and will not hesitate to hire him again if we ever have the need.

Consultation
Saw Mr. Lee yesterday in prep for bringing my Korean fiance to Utah. He was really great and when he didn't know a question, he did everything to find the right answers. He's kind, considerate, and knows how to navigate immigration law. I'll be using him when I'm ready to apply the paper work for my finance and I. I would highly recommend this attorney if you have visa or immigration concerns.

Just what I needed
I could not be more happy with the outcome of my case. My case was reduced from two sever charges down to nothing more than a traffic ticket. Mr. Lee was spot on with his analysis and judgement of the case and how the Prosecuting Attorney would responded. His knowledge of the system and the other party was a huge benefit. I hope I never need to use his services again, but without questions I would retain Mr. Lee. I highly recommend Mr. Lee for any legal matters.

Excellent
I had a case where an insurance company did not want to pay my medical bills from a car accident made by one of their clients. The case took almost two years to be presented at court. The defendant's lawyer showed documents and assumptions that were never made in the two years until the day we were at court. It was a difficult situation, because none of us knew about this information. However, James Lee handled the situation really well and acted very professional. He was direct, did not go around the bush and presented a clear explanation to the judge. The other lawyer could not really say anything against his words and at the end we won the case. I highly recommend James Lee. Thank you

Recommendation for Liberty Law, James Lee
I hired James Lee to handle a personal case for me. James took care of everything but kept me informed on what was happening throughout the process. It was a worry-free experience. I highly recommend James Lee; he's professional, experienced, and easy to work with.

A nice and expert lawyer
He is a great and knowledgeable criminal and immigration lawyer. He helped me a lot in resolving a case which got worse in the middle of the process. I liked his responsibility to get the best possible deal with the prosecutor considering the conditions that happened in the middle of the investigations. I highly recommend him for his sense of responsibility, niceness and negotiation capabilities.

The best attorney.
James did a great job, he kept me informed about my case, he made me feel like he was doing everything he could to help me on my case, and he did. His amazing job and knowledge helped me to get out of it with a great outcome. There's no doubt that if in the future I need a attorney I know I'm calling the best. Thank you so much James.

Sharing my Experience Will Help You
Unfortunately I cannot share my problem completely, But this attorney changed my serious case to something else at the end. He really did his best to clean my records in the U.S. as much as possible. You never feel that you are cooperating with an stranger attorney. All the time I had this feeling that he is a member of my family and he really will help you like a part of your family. So, WHY SHOULD I GO WITH SOMEONE ELSE SINCE THIS GUY IS LIVING IN UTAH??!!
