San Diego attorney James Hassey prides himself on going above and beyond to get the best outcome for his clients.  Mr. Hassey has been recognized for his tenacity, exceptional grasp of relevant statutes and case-law, as well as his creative approach with one and only one goal in mind… to do what's best for his clients. 

Every case has multiple moving parts and any one of those can mean the difference between winning and losing.  Procedural concerns; proper analysis and ability to use and exploit relevant statutes and case law in your favor as well as to weaken the other side’s case, as well as appropriate tactical approaches to interactions with opposing counsel, judges and if need be, juries.

 

If you believe you may need legal representation, please don’t hesitate to call and schedule a free consultation.  The information shared during any such meeting is protected and because memories tend to fade from day to day, and even the smallest of details can make the biggest difference, it’s always better to meet sooner than later.  You are not obligated to move forward with your case unless you choose to.

Great Lawyer!
Great Lawyer! Jim is everything you wish your attorney would be, dependable, professional, and informative. He's so easy to work with, very understanding and his advice helped me resolve an issue within my case. He handled everything flawlessly, cares about the client, and is transparent about the process. I will not hesitate to contact him in the future if I need legal advice. I couldn't be happier with his services.

Car dispute
Mr. Hassey gave professional and helpful advice regarding a car dispute. He directed us and informed us on making right decisions on purchasing a vehicle from a dealership that was a bit eccentric. Mr. Hassey was very affable with us, and I will definitely recommend him! Give him a call and find out for yourselves!

Review of James L. Hassey
When paperwork was sent to me from a law firm, past a deadline, Mr. Hassey immediately looked into it for me, sent me emails to let me know the status, he went to court to rectify the problem, and constantly kept in touch with me to let me know what he was doing and why. He did exactly what he promised.

Got it done right!
Jim (James), got things done in a timely manner and kept me informed at all times, always returned my phone calls and followed up when he said he would! Great communication! I would recommend Jim and use his services again if need be! Thanks for everything, and the great job you did!

Professional and Quick to Respond
Jim was very considerate in getting back to me in a timely manner. No matter the hour he'd get back to me and I greatly appreciated it. Unfortunately I find it more common than not to have attorneys not respond to requests, but this is not the case with Jim. He responded to all requests and has been courteous and professional throughout the process. He's gone above and beyond in helping me. Even where matters did not concern him directly, he'd seek ways of providing me some answers or heading me in the right direction. He has helped me along greatly and I would recommend him if you're looking for someone who will get the job done and keep you in the loop.

Angel in Disguise
Mr. Hassy was a true Blessing for me and my daughter. He was my personal Guardian Angel on Earth! I had never experience such a life changing event that left me feeling incomplete and literally broken but I have Mr. Hassey and his team to thank for getting me back on track with every aspect of my life. Mr. Hassey is not a money hungry attorney out for his on benefit, he truly cares for his clients and is genuine in all he does. He went above and beyond my expectations. I found a long life friend in Mr. Hassey and if I had the means I would keep him as my permanent Family lawyer. He handled my case as if it were I were one of his family members he was protecting. Mr. Hassey and his team were very attentive to my needs. They always kept me updated, always asked how I was doing and feeling and showed their genuine concern for my recovery. My case was settled rather quickly and he was able to fight for every penny I was owed without hesitation. In a world full of unjust, Mr. Hassey proved to be the most loyal, honest and compassionate lawyer of all. I would recommend Mr. Hassey and his team to all those I know, love and come across in need of an Angel in disguise. There is only one Lawyer I will ever turn to and that is Mr. James "Jim" Hassey! Thank you for all you and your team have done for me and continue to do. You really were heaven sent Mr. Hassey, God Bless you and your family now and always. My daughter and I are forever grateful.

a very hands-on and customer service oriented attorney
Getting any kind of misdemeanor citation, especially for the first time, is a harrowing and very unsettling experience where you're at the mercy of the slow and unpredictable court system. To minimize the damages to your psyche and criminal record, it is important to hire some one who will fight for you and take the time to explain the entire process (and it is a very long process). Jim took over my case as I proceeded to petition for probation termination and expunge from my record. This is a very important final step in the process. Along the way, he was very available at all times and ready to answer any questions or concerns that I had. He worked hard to complete my case and generate the most optimal results possible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to a friend or family member.
