I was referred to James (Jim) for a consultation. He left a wonderful impression. He was professional, respectful, caring, and really took his time to answer all my questions and has shown his expertise on my small case. I would like to highly recommend Jim.

5 Stars all the way with Jim. I hired Jim after an auto accident last year. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and available for me during a somewhat daunting process. Jim was always more than happy to help and answer never-ending questions and treated me like family. We have since settled the case and he made the process seamless and easier than I ever expected. I wouldn't refer anyone else to help with legal issues.

Jim and Nancy Whitehead is a husband and wife team of attorneys that came to mine and my husband's rescue when my husband had been assaulted. They were wonderful and came to our home many times to help us with our case. They were very professional and at the same time very kind, understanding, and caring. We will forever be grateful to them for helping us settle our case. They not only helped us but also our daughter who was injured when a motorist struck her as she was crossing the street in a crosswalk. They also helped settle a case for our son who was injured when hit by a semi-truck. It's good to know you have good attorneys to turn to and we're forever grateful to them both.
