Jim has been helping our family with personal and business legal matters for the past several years. Our legal needs have ranged from a complicated estate to real estate transactions and we feel that he has performed in an exemplary manner… During the course of our relationship he represented us in very complex matters to include the sale of our business where Jim dealt with lawyers of a very large national company, served in a vital role in dealing with a large estate and was our attorney, representing use in a wrongful death lawsuit. That matter went to mediation and the mediator commented that he had never seen a lawyer as prepared and thorough as Jim.
