"​I'm very pleased with the way my lawyer is handling my case. He's been very friendly, helpful, and has showed concern for my overall well-being during this period of my life.​​"
"​James is extremely knowledgeable about my case and works very hard to make sure that I’m taken care of and that I’m happy with the current status of my divorce. I don’t think there is anything else that could be done that isn’t being done already. I have had the best experience I could have imagined. This is not easy to go through but I feel very welcome in the office, I’m always greeted with smiles, no matter what is discussed in my meeting I feel that my attorney looks at it as the most important thing he has to do, and when talking to my attorney he always looks me in the eyes when discussing my situation and is never distracted by anything. I’m taken serious and that means a lot. I could not have asked for a better attorney than James Todd.​"
