Best decision!
The guidance and advice I received was outstanding at all times. Jim is prompt, timely, open for calls, quick updates and worked through all of my questions and issues on my case. Jim’s expert legal skill is phenomenal but just as important, he’s a supportive attorney who truly cares and fought hard for me. Jim went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome with successful results. I can't thank Jim enough for his excellent skill, care, diligence and time on my case. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney or law firm. At one of the most stressful times of my life, I was blessed to have an attorney that met me right where I was and give me advice in a language I could understand. The entire team was pleasant to work with and very available and responsive. I highly recommend them! You should hire Jim because he is absolutely the best at what he does. Take my word for it.

Divorce Simplified
Very happy with James Jackson and his office. I tried to do the divorce by myself but was too emotional and the documents were too confusing and the paralegal offices I called for help kept saying, 'we can't answer that, we aren't attorneys." Since this was a simple divorce we didn't want an attorney but did need help! Mr Jackson helped us through the process, always available by email or his amazing assistant, Evelyn, to answer questions, draft documents and guide us all the way. Mr. Jackson held up his end of the deal by seeing the divorce through, not complicating it, or adding fees or surprises. He delivered what he committed to us. My husband and I are officially divorced now thanks to James Jackson and his office and I highly recommend him.

Mr. James Jackson has worked endlessly on my case. His knowledge and hand picked qualified staff demonstrate professionalism at the same time compassion, not easily found in an individual. His expertise on the law blended with eagerness to support you is illimitable. I highly recommend Mr. James Jackson as your attorney
