“I was involved in a very difficult lawsuit and was very stressed out about finding the right representation. I spoke to many potential attorneys and absolutely made the right choice. James worked out a deal that was totally in my favor. They were tough days. He was personally concerned and an all around great guy and attorney. He would be the first person I called if I needed such services again.” 

James Cox (New York, NY)

“I worked with James & his firm on a case which lasted over a year. I had invested in a business & my capital disappeared almost immediately after investing. James helped me reach a settlement with the owner. Without his help, I’d have nothing. My biggest mistake was not listening to him on every point because he understood the parameters better than I did. He is extremely well spoken & has the ability to see the crux in matters very quickly. He pointed out issues & criteria that I’d never have imagined. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is involved in a dispute or wants to create language to avoid a dispute.”

Tim Steenstrup (New York, NY)

"We hired James to work out a settlement agreement at the last minute. He worked fast to come to an agreement with the other attorney. He had our best interest at heart and we came away with something that was workable.  If we are ever in need of legal services again we would hire him without hesitation."
