Excellent attorney and highly recommended - you couldn't ask for better

I have worked with James and the founding partner of his firm for over 20 years. For the last 8 or 9 years James has been my sole contact at the firm and has handled all of our legal needs. He is always friendly, helpful and timely. James is also extremely knowledgeable on any number of legal matters. if he doesn't know the answer he will find it for me or refer me to the perfect person to help me. James has made the normally unpleasant experience of working with an attorney a very pleasant and enjoyable one.


Employment Case Solved

Vanessa Vanderbrug was the most patient, trustworthy, hard-working, helpful, and supportive lawyer I have ever worked with as a client. I had a very difficult situation at my previous workplace and employer. I worked with Vanessa a little over a year ago and since she was familiar with my case and situation, I found her again to ask if she would help finish my employment case. She was amazing, trustworthy, and helpful. Vanessa also cares about her clients as a person and recommends helpful solutions in their life. I highly recommend working with Vanessa in the future, and would recommend her to anyone.

Friendly, Client-Focused Attorney

After being badly injured in a car accident and suffering many years with chronic pain, I was frustrated and fed up. I felt lost in the process and felt like I would never have my medical bills paid or get my case settled. I felt desperate. Vanessa changed everything. I have never met a friendly person in my life, let alone an attorney. Ms. Vanderbrug is experienced and knows the law like the back of her hand. She is a true advocate for her clients. She is honest, straight-forward, and keeps her clients informed each step of the way. She let me know what to expect in terms of timelines and understand how the process worked. I could not more highly recommend a lawyer.

Dental Malpractice Case

Mr. Owens was very responsive, kept me appraised of the status of my case, and delineated the course of the case. He handled my case in an expeditious, professional, and ultimately successful manner. Mr. Owens was respectful of me, was honest in the conduct of the case and his expectations in the case. I was confident and appreciative that he represented me in court.

James is a great attorney who was very helpful to me during my legal matters. He listens and is attentive but is also very thorough in his explanations. He responds very quickly to emails or phone calls which was very important to me especially when I was anxious for follow ups. I would recommend James to my friends.
