Possibly the best Law firm in OC
After I was sued, avvo led me to Jim. I consulted one other attorney but Jim impressed me enough not to look for any other and hire him for my case right away. My litigation went for over 3 years, but Jim along with Lauren and the whole staff supported me right till the end. The best thing is whenever I had a question, I didn't have to wait for the answers. All the matters were handled in a timely manner. Mary was awesome and I never had to worry about any missed dates or filings. Jim is always open to input, listens to you and explains the steps well. He is very professional, diligent and has a very good work ethic. He laid out all the scenarios before moving on to different phases in the case. Despite the complexities in the case, I was supported by Jim throughout the process to continue with my normal life. I can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend this attorney.

The Best Law Office in OC
Jim and his team were incredibly helpful (Andrew and Mary). Jim took the time to hear everything I had to say, and was very informative on what I could and could not do. His advice made for a smooth handling of my case. I was updated frequently with what was going on, and what the opposing counsel was doing. Having Jim as my attorney relieved most of the stress from the case. I had no knowledge about the law until he explained step by step in detail about the things I needed to know. Overall Jim and Andrew were extremely professional and friendly and I can not thank them enough for getting my case dismissed, I did not feel judged or taken advantage of like other experiences. Thank you to the whole team.

The best lawyer in OC--tons of skills, professional, and trustworthy
We are very happy that we found James on the website. We reviewed his profile comments and we called his office to schedule a meeting right away. During our meeting with James we observed that James not only has professional skills in real estate but he truly cares about his clients. He made us feel very comfortable and relaxed about our case and we felt strongly that he would successfully represent us. James provided us with honest advice, strong support, and made us feel very confident about our case because of his knowledge and experience in real estate legal matters. We hired James immediately as our lawyer. This was the best decision we have made in a long time. James succeeded in representing us beyond our expectations. We won our lawsuit and 100% of our attorney fees and costs. James was always able to provide us with clear and thoughtful reasons for his actions throughout the lawsuit process. He was at all times very responsive, focused, and highly organized on everything. His associates and staff were amazing and worked very hard in every way. He is absolutely positively the best lawyer we have ever met, always putting his clients first. We will definitely use James Ulwelling for life in any legal matters because he is the best lawyer we have ever found. We will unequivocably recommend James to all our family and friends. Finally, now we can relax and enjoy our new house. A million times thank you to James for everything you have done for us and may God Bless You Always. Please give James a call for any legal matters because he is the best lawyer in OC and you will not regret your decision.

CREME DE LA CREME
Mr Ulwelling not only won my case for me, but kept me up to date, play by play on every action he, or the other party took. I NEVER felt out of the loop. I can sincerely say, I don't think I would have won my case without Mr Ulwelling. I think I would have thrown in the towel, if it were not for his tenacity, knowledge and experience. His office staff was also amazing, they were kept abreast of everything happening on my case, and they would also keep me informed. Just a little about my case; I had a "family" member try to steal my inheritance by the way of Adverse possession (a house). He took the Bull by the Horns and turned things around in my favor, and I ended up whole again. He really did change my life for the better, even when I was ready to throw in the towel. I would recommend Mr James Ulwelling for ALL your Real Estate Legal matters. Every time I think about what he did for me, a huge smile adorns my face!!! THANKS AGAIN MR. ULWELLING!!!

Recommendation
I was the executor of a very challenging and complex estate legal matter. From start to successful conclusion Jim was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was at all times very responsive, professional, knowledgable, focused, strategic and highly organized. I have the utmost respect for how effectively and successfully Jim represented us at every stage. Hopefully I will never have to deal a matter like this again but ,if so, Jim is the first person I will call. Highly recommended.

Extremely helpful!
Jim Ulwelling and his staff are very attentive, professional, and helpful! My husband, and I needed an attorney to help with an ongoing neighbor dispute. We found Mr. Ulwelling to provide us with honest advice, strong support, and timely responses. He (and his team) helped us resolve what seemed to be an unending conflict. We can now enjoy our home again!

Exceptional -- Took Our RE Transaction from Idea to Execution
Without reservation, I highly recommend Jim. He negotiated a tricky real estate purchase for us, and was exceptional at dealing with not only the transnational side of things, but also gracefully handling the Seller, who was very emotionally attached to the property. I have been through numerous real estate purchases before, and can say Jim is the best of the best. He has both the experience at making sure things are done right and efficiently, and, the personality to handle the emotions and complexities of drawn out negotiations (from both sides). When we retained Ulwelling & Siddiqui, our obtaining the subject property was a huge long shot (to put it mildly). Jim was the first and only contact that the sellers had with us along the way. The first inkling of Jim's caliber came when he was able to just get the Seller to consider selling. Needless to say, he set our offer in motion and to our successful close. He is fair, honest and practices with the utmost integrity, and fights hard for his clients, while putting the other side at ease. A top notch attorney.

Outstanding lawyer -- Successfully defended us against a multi-million dollar breach of contract lawsuit
I highly recommend Jim Ulwelling of Ulwelling Siddiqui LLP. He successfully defended my business partner and me against a multi-million dollar lawsuit alleging breach of contract and other causes of action. Jim was consistently able to deliver powerful, convincing arguments which ultimately succeed in defeating the extremely determined plaintiff who sued us. Thanks to Jim’s efforts, we walked away owing the plaintiff nothing. During the course of his representation, I came to respect Jim not only for his competence as an attorney, but also for his professionalism. Before we approached Jim, we had taken it upon ourselves to learn as much as possible about the relevant law. Thus, as clients we had strong views on how we wished to proceed. A lesser lawyer and a lesser human being than Jim would have either taken umbrage at our inputs or obsequiously followed them. Instead, Jim was always able to provide a well-reasoned explanation as to why we should proceed in a certain manner and identify factors which we might not have considered. This is where his professionalism and calm, enlightened demeanor really shined through. Although lawsuits are an unpleasant affair, Jim was always a pleasure to work with. If you need a very intelligent, personable, skilled lawyer and ethical professional to represent you in critical litigation, Jim Ulwelling is definitely your man.

The Best of the Best Lawyer
There are no words to describe how great Jim is! I was in desperate need to find another attorney to help with my Real Estate matter. Luckily, I met Jim’s associate, Tom, who referred me to Jim. Even though it was completely last minute, Jim set aside his time to meet with me for an hour to go over my case. He listened patiently while I went over the matter with him. Not only is he professional, but he truly cares about his clients. For instance, when he met with me, he knew I was stressed. Instead of just focusing on the case, he asked me to breathe and relax. He made sure that I was OK before we proceeded. He is so knowledgeable on the matter and asked me great questions to make the case stronger. Jim knew where and what information to look for from all the documents I had with me (and I had huge stacks of docs too). Jim did a great job in constructing the cancellation letter and putting pressures on the other side. At the end, the other side knew that they did not have any grounds to sue me based on the cancellation letter that Jim put together. Not only that, Jim made sure that I got all my money back that I have wired to the Escrow office. I’m so grateful and please that Jim resolved the matter within a week. I was so stressed but after meeting with him, he helped relieved a lot of my stress and gave me a positive outlook in this matter. Jim is very professional and always made sure that I’m in the loop on all communications. He is truly the best I have seen so far. I would recommend Jim if anybody needs a lawyer. Kudos to him and his work!

An attorney you can trust - represented us on Auto accident case on the defendant side
We were looking for an attorney we could trust, and Jim came highly recommended. Jim represented us in a car accident case, where the plaintiff's attorney was initially requesting a very large settlement amount. We felt very comfortable and relieved after meeting with Jim at his office. He responded to emails and phone calls very quickly and was extremely knowledgeable, professional and efficient in consulting with us as needed. I really felt he was there for us, and he spent the time we needed to come up with the best strategy, in collaboration with our insurance company and their attorney. The case ended up going well, and we are very grateful. I give Jim my highest recommendation and will call him again if we ever need any legal advice! Thanks Jim!

Exceptional Attorney
Attorney Ulwelling represented my family in a complicated real estate matter. While I am extremely pleased with the outcome (we prevailed), I am really impressed with Mr. Ulwelling's process, his ethics, and his business style. He quickly grasped the situation, applied the law along with his own sense of reasonableness, and proceeded to an expedient resolution. He always had my family's best interests as his foremost concern. Mr. Ulwelling turned what could have been a protracted and expensive process into a quick and reasonable one. Further, he was communicative, trustworthy, and exceptionally responsive. I am very grateful to Mr. Ulwelling for his service to my family.

Endorsement for the Attorney Skills of Jim Ulwelling
I would recommend without reservation the legal services of Jim Ulwelling. I had the incredibly good fortune to have Jim represent my interests as a client as well as the interests of the organization with which I was affiliated. Jim exhibited a level of skill, professionalism, work ethic and diligence that I have personally never experienced. I have had the opportunity to work with other attorneys and Jim’s representation was unique and exceptional. Preliminarily, Jim was able to secure the ultimate result that I was seeking which was a dismissal with prejudice of the entire action against all parties including but not limited to myself. However, to simply state the result which was obtained would be to grossly understate the effort which was required on Jim’s part to obtain this result. Jim was up against a highly assertive adversary in this situation which required him to utilize virtually every skill in an attorney’s arsenal including but not limited to detailed legal research, incredibly strategic litigation tactics, legal argument, etc. Jim exemplified all of these skills throughout his representation but was at all times sensitive to cost issues and did his best to minimize these. Jim made me feel at all times as though winning the case became a personal mission for him which instilled even greater confidence than I already had in his fine representation. If anyone is seeking an attorney who will truly immerse himself in his client’s case with genuine authenticity, you have found that individual in Jim Ulwelling. I recommend that you entrust your matter to this fine individual of incomparable skill and work ethic.

Excellent Experience
We went to Jim with a tenant problem involving an eviction. The initial interview was very through and a plan to deal with the tenant was developed. All calls and e-mails were responded to very quickly. Jim's emphasis was on solving the problem in a timely, realistic and economical manner. I would highly recommend this attorney and would definitely use him again.

The best attorney you can find
I have known Jim for the past 10 years during which time he has acted as my lawyer in both business and personal matters. We are general contractors that do both commercial and residential construction. His best work so far has been in the matter of a lawsuit that another attorney had been handling for 4 years before I had met Jim. Jim took the lawsuit over two years ago and I just received my settlement check! This was definitely his best work in a very difficult real estate case. I would highly recommend Jim Ulwelling to anyone looking for an excellent attorney. I have referred many business associates as well as friends to him and everyone has been pleased with his work. I have only known Jim to be very honest, fair, knowledgeable, personable and has always acted with the utmost integrity throughout my 10 year relationship with him.
