James worked closely with our family, explained every option and answered every question we had in terms we could clearly understand. He kept in close contact, and would sometimes just drop a line or make a call to see how we were doing, even if there was no news on our case. Practicing law for so many years, he was not only extremely knowledgeable in the law and process, but was very familiar with many other attorneys in the area... and is very respected among them. We ended up settling out of court and were pleased with our fair settlement. Sadly, between the time of the accident and the settlement, we lost our Dad to kidney failure / colon cancer. To our surprise, James took time out of his busy schedule to come to Dad's funeral! Not only were we fortunate enough to work with a WONDERFUL attorney, we feel like we gained a family friend through our darkest of times.
