After working with various attorneys, James has been by far the most thorough and informative when helping with our business's legal needs.
What I found to be most valuable is that James actually cares that we fully understand all of the legal implications of every document/contract that he has help us with. Great find.

I worked with James on a form of business and tax planning challenge. He struck me as a professional with integrity committed to personal and business excellence. He exhibited deep knowledge of the problem to be solved and skillfully provided all the services I required. He was also patient enough to explain to me all the ins-and-outs I wasn't familiar with. I highly recommend him.

Jim is one of a kind attorney, After our initial meeting I felt that it is like I have known him for a long time.
I did not feel good at the time so he offered to see me at my house and spent an hour with me explaining everything in detail.
He is well informed in the field of State and Federal Taxes,Tax returns and Tax audits..
His fees are reasonable as he came to see me at my house several times and he did not charge any extras.
I recomend him highly for his honesty, integrity ,fairness and well knowledge.
