Jim helped me out in a family law matter. Ive worked with a lot of worthless lawyers and Jim is a good guy. He's honest and up front. He doesn't overcharge his clients.
He works with you when you can't afford it. He was a life saver, and a blessing after my other lawyer took me for a ride.

My family law case in Mendocino County was very difficult from the start, and I went through a literal phone book trying to find a lawyer that would at least listen to my side before their outright refusal. I was at the end of my rope when I found James. He not only listened to me, but took my case when other lawyers wouldn't even take my phone calls. He handled everything with professionalism, and managed to be compassionate while doing so. I never felt like I was just another client while I worked with Mr. Sansone. He was very quick to return phone calls and e-mails, and always kept me abreast of any changes in my case. I wouldn't hesitate giving Mr. Sansone a reference to someone I knew in California. I also wouldn't think twice about hiring him again if I ever needed a lawyer. He is the best choice I could have every made for my family law case, and I am so grateful for the hard work and compassion he showed while he represented me

Mr. Sansone was a court appointed lawyer. I have tried numerous times to set up an appointment with him regarding my case, with no results and a few times out right refusal. ?!
The telephone staff has been unprofessional, laughing and talking with other people while I was trying to speak and set up an appointment.
Mr. Sansone spoke for me in court, without talking with me or informing me of how we should best approach the situation.
He excluded me from future court hearings, with out talking
with me or asking if that's what I wanted.
I have been trying to change a court order and he will not meet with me to have it done.
