      I was fortunate to have retained Jim to represent a loved one who was extradited to Georgia on two 6 year old felony charges. Jim acted swiftly to get the bench warrant hearing on the court docket. Not only did he resolve the bench warrant, he resolved the 2 felony charges with a sentence of probation at the warrant hearing. He resolved the entire case in less than 30 days including transportation back to Georgia. This included the Christmas and New Year holidays when government is closed. He presented a very thorough and convincing presentation to the court to accomplish the probation ruling during a Friday AM court session. Our loved one was supposed to be released the same day and appear at the interstate probation office at 9:30 AM Monday. We then learned that the jail did not released our loved one on that Friday because his jail records still had warrants for 2 additional felonies. Jim tried to resolve the matter via e-mail on Sat. with no success. On Sunday, Jim went to the jail in person to the jail to resolve the matter. He also e-mailed the ADA on Sun. but the ADA did not respond. His first task on Monday. AM was to contact the ADA who then prepared a “Pre-Trial Disposition Notice”. On the notice, the ADA acknowledged that the additional warrant charges were added erroneously to the bench warrant of 6 years ago. The ADA’s notice process and slow jail release caused our loved one to miss his 9:30 AM Mon. interstate Probation appointment. Jim intervened and explained to the Interstate Probation representative that the DA’s erroneous charges did not allow our loved one to keep his Mon. AM appointment. Finally, our loved one met with the Interstate probation representative, obtained his paperwork and issued papers authorizing his travel to his home state to be reunited with his young children on Tues. Jim even followed up on Tues. to make sure the probation process in Georgia finally got completed. Jim's staff member (Gladys) even went above and beyond her normal duties by assisting us with shipment of a package of warm clothing for our loved one. Jim was professional, tenacious and thorough following up every step of the way with his own initiative. It is sad that court errors caused our loved one to be incarcerated 2 more days than required. We are grateful that Jim was able to limit the erroneous incarceration to 2 days. Read less
