Do not choose James Sansone, if you are looking for someone to represent you diligently; I feel I was better off without representation than have him as my attorney. He showed no motivation or competence. He has poor written and oral skills. He was consistently uninformed about my case. He was not aware of court dates and left me hanging and stressed out; he called me 5 minutes before a court appearance to tell me I have to be in court. He showed a complete lack of interest in learning the details of my case and therefore did not provide any support or helpful advice during mediation. He stood over me during mediation and demanded that I sign a stipulation which had items added that I had no knowledge of nor agreed to. The stipulation that he worked on my behalf stated that Louise Fightmaster, the mediator, without my knowledge was appointed as child custody recommending counselor, which is in conflict with being the divorce mediator. After I fired, James Sansone, my new attorney found this item and it was retracted from the stipulation because it was in violation. As an attorney he is a poor choice.

I met with this attorney for a bankruptcy matter, and he kept looking at his watch. I asked about what forms I had to fill out and he just said "go on my website" I have no idea what the forms require and he didn't explain anything about them. He seems very busy, but i'm facing a lot of problems and he just didn't seem to listen or care.

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.
