Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Michael Edward Haas

    For the past couple years I have had the pleasure of working with Jim on a very complex criminal case that we recently won. Words tend to fail me when I try to describe just how incredible he is - as an attorney and as a person. Put simply and after having spent nearly 25 years in this business, I feel very comfortable stating that Jim is one of the best criminal defense lawyers I've met. He is brilliant, funny, an incredible writer and devastating to the other side in the court room. He is honest, calm in a storm and tenacious beyond belief. Jim is truly an attorney's attorney. I endorse him without reservation in both criminal defense and personal injury matters.

  • Derek P Radtke

    I have opposed Jim on many cases over the years in the personal injury area. Because of the confidence I have in his abilities as a trial lawyer, I have referred clients to him when in need of a criminal defense attorney.
