Mr. Laukkonen was able to get false assault charges against me dismissed and is representing me in another matter, which appears to be going very favorably for me. I highly recommend him. He also responds quickly.

I wish there were 6 stars to rate James Laukkonen. I fought hard to leave an abusive relationship of 7 years which left me destitute and alone with a small child. I have no family here in America and few friends due to the nature of the relationship so it was easy for my ex to take advantage of me. It was at this time he began using the court system to continue his abuse and control tactics and he came very near to having me jailed. It was a complicated and ugly mess of a problem that was ruining my life.
James took the case quickly, worked with me at every turn and was very clear about what may or may not happen. I was terrified completely, but the level of professionalism James held at all times put me at complete ease. He answered all of my communications quickly, had a working plan at all times and I never felt any doubt that I wasn't in good hands. My case was differed and all issues resulting after were handled by him with success. I am very lucky to have found him.
