A Competent Attorney with Integrity Who Will Fight for Your Best Interest
We had a complex real estate case. The law firm we hired initially had four attorneys work on our case in turns for over a year and made little progress. It turned out some cared more about their own interest and weren’t genuinely interested in ours. It was very frustrating as we had a strong case. We had to let the first law firm go. When Jim Ison took over our case, things quickly turned around. We found him to be very professional and compassionate. He was easy to work with, asked sharp questions, and listened carefully to what we had to say. He engaged us in every step of the process, kept us fully informed, and explained things to us very clearly. Jim was a very knowledgeable attorney and had good judgment. He prepared for our case diligently and carefully. His competence and work ethics quickly earned our trust. With the attorneys we had worked with previously, we got so stressed out. With Jim, we were so at ease knowing that he was going to take care of everything for us. I want to mention that the defendant in the case had some powerful connections and hired two law firms to defend him. At times, they tried to intimidate Jim. But, Jim was not afraid of threats, and fought back fearlessly on our behalf. He assured us that he would fight for us to the end regardless of who the opponent was and what law firms he used. Jim’s competence, integrity and professionalism made us feel protected and empowered. In the end, the case was settled to our satisfaction. Had we had Jim represent us from the very beginning, the outcome would have been even better. We were fortunate to have such a compassionate, competent and trustworthy attorney represent us.
