Jim is more than happy to speak with prospective clients for free to help advise them about their options with advice geared towards achieving their specific goals and taking into consideration their unique personal desires. Part of his willingness to speak with clients, or offer second opinions, is the desire to help contribute to quality of the legal advice received by clients and discuss options that may not have been presented to them initially.
