Revocable Living Trust
Jim assisted me in preparing my Living Trust and Pour over Will recently. He is knowledgeable, professional, prompt and to the point. I recommend his service to anyone in need of a Living Trust. He is also good with follow up messages... 2 thumbs up for an attorney who knows what needs to be done. Vance

Family Business
James was recommended to me by a personal friend, at the outset, there was one minor issue, Mr. McBride had forgotten our initial appointment, consequentially, my Dad and I waited for a good while before meeting Jim. That was soon forgotten, and once we got to the gist of our business, Jim was found to be quite helpful, knowledgeable, and thorough. I am pleased, and would recommend Mr. McBride to anybody in need of an honest, transparent attorney.

Great advice for 25+ years
A retired judge recommended Jim McBride to me about 1990. Jim's professional advice and insights have informed me in Trust/Estate planning, Tenant relations and employee matters. In areas outside of his expertise, he won't fake it, but has recommended other attorneys to me.

Superior legal knowledge, Quick action, Reasonable fees... What more can you ask for?
Jim has helped me many times through the years. I do not hesitate to refer my clients to him. My clients feel the same way that I do, he's the best. His fees are reasonable. He does not drag things out like I have seen other attorneys do. If he can remedy your situation as you consult with him, he does it, right then and there. He is knowledgeable about most areas of law. I strongly recommend you call on Jim the next time you need legal services of any kind.

great all-around family lawyer
James P. McBride has handled many important matters for me and my family over the last twelve years. Before this, he was my father's lawyer for many years. The matters he has dealt with include marriage and divorce issues, a complicated inheritance, tenancy questions and wills and trusts. All of his work has been highly satisfactory. He has consistently shown himself to be personable, professional, focused and well-organized. He responds promptly to questions and never lets work drag on longer than necessary. The fees are moderate. I intend to continue using his services for matters like those noted above.

Jim McBride
I have used Jim McBride as my attorney for more thnan 30 years. He wrote our Trust as well as my fathers Trust. He has helped with many and varied legal issues. He is always a consummate professional. His knowledge of the law is displayed everytime we talk. he is honest, always letting me know both sides of any issue before giving his advice. He promptly wrote up our Trust which is still valid years later. He obviously stays up with current law, Jim

Excellent Eviction attorney
Mr. McBride provided excellent counseling while guiding me through the eviction process. He explained the process and was very honest and up front about what to expect. I felt very confident with his representation. Although the process is stressful and unpleasant, he was there the whole time. I recommend his services for anyone with a landlord tenant issue.

My Estate Planning Experience
I recently had James work on a living trust for my family. I found him to be knowledgeable and trusting. I also found his fee's to be quite reasonable. When I was missing a document from my paperwork, he picked up a copy for me from the recorders office! I absolutely recommend James.
