This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the California State Bar to understand the reasons for disbarment.

Mr. Nations is a tremendously competent attorney who provides thorough counsel on bankruptcy matters. His advocacy, knowledge and skill are extensive and effective in removing much of the fear often associated with filing for bankruptcy. Additionally, Mr. Nations is pleasure to speak with. I highly recommend Mr. Nations to anyone finding themselves in search of an experienced bankruptcy attorney.

“In a world where many lawyers mostly tend to reinforce the negative stereotypes many of us have of them, James is a refreshing exception. I try to avoid using attorneys, but sometimes it can't be avoided. James has all the qualities you want when you do need an attorney - excellent listening skills, personable, trustworthy, intelligent, very knowledgeable - the kind of things that make you actually like your attorney...what a concept. James is as much a negotiator as an attorney, which I appreciated. He is not "sue happy" - and has the ability to bring all sides together for mutual benefit. At the same time, he can be a tough SOB when that is required, and you definitely would not want to face him on the other side of the table. I have recommended James to anyone who unfortunately needs a lawyer, including my best friends (as long as they're not suing me)

Jim is a leader and a very kind and compassionate person. Jim is a conservative and competent lawyer whom I trust. To trust a lawyer says more than anything that can be put in print. I count myself lucky to call this guy my friend!!
