"I had a great experience working with James and would highly recommend him. He went above and beyond to come up with documentation to support my case and offered me great advice through the entire process. We ended up going to mediation (instead of a trial) and I have no doubt it was the right guidance and decision and we came out with a great result. He was responsive, personable and I just totally trusted him and was so glad he was my partner through my legal issue. I would highly recommend him and I will to anyone who is looking."
