Easily handled a challenging problem
James McDaniel was superb, and he was absolutely money well spent. We started working with James after a real estate investor arrangement went bad and we found ourselves in the very unhappy place of facing a lawsuit. James really shined when at one point in this process, the investor whom we had legally severed our relationship with, made threats of a lawsuit to pressure us to sell to him. James and team stepped up to provide legal advice, support and a strong response to the other party. We are incredibly happy with James and felt we received excellent advice and representation. I strongly and wholeheartedly recommend James McDaniel.

Excellent Attorney
James helped out when an old lien was holding up the sale of two properties. He was quick, responsive and reassuring. I can’t thank him enough for working with me and getting the lien removed quickly and efficiently when no one else would.

Awesome Attorney!
James represented me right out of law school as the second chair in my complex commercial lease and fraud trial. James was involved in every aspect of the 15-day jury trial and subsequent appeal. He impressed me with his knowledge of the law, his familiarly with my whole case forwards and backward, and his straightforward and grounded explanations of some very complex legal proceedings. After the 15-day jury trial, the jury awarded me a seven figure judgment (after including interest and a sizeable attorney’ fee award). James was also instrumental in securing the judgment by defending it on appeal resulting in a favorable published appellate decision that set precedent and which has been repeatedly cited by other cases. James was routinely and consistently available by phone and email to keep me up to date with the status of my case. I would highly recommend speaking with James first about your real estate or legal dispute.
