"​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.​"
"I​ feel that Jim is doing a very good job on my case. And I would recommend him to anyone that would be put in my situation. He always keeps me up to date and seems to be very knowledgeable on this issue. And he us always there to make suggestions on different things and has a friendly personality that make me comfortable to talk to."
​"James did a great job! He was always sending me updates and making sure I knew exactly what was going on, probably in more detail than most would expect which I very much appreciated."

"Jim has been fantastic and transparent.  I have recommended Jim to anybody and everybody I know of. Jim lets me know the process and is in constant communication.  It has been very pleasant working with both Jim and the firm.​"


​"He was always very prompt in his responses. James C. Todd did an exceptional job of keeping the case realistic and was diligent in fully representing me accurately. He was also exceptional in giving a case update in such a manner a layman like me could understand. James followed through with me through the COVID-19 crisis and guided me through to an outcome that I am very pleased with."


"​I never have experienced such caring and honest care from anyone. The firm was always there and willing to help with any questions. I had plenty of answers and an overall job well done."


"​Jim has handled my case exceptionally well in my opinion. Very attentive to me and my needs/wants in all aspects of this to include frequency of communication, as well as anticipating things I would need to know or do for the divorce and advising me appropriately."


"I cannot rate James C Todd high enough. His attention to every detail and staying in communication with me has been quite incredible. I feel like he has been on my side from the very first day and always sees every detail through to resolution. My experience with this firm has been outstanding!"


"I was really nervous going into this but Jim has put me at ease."


James has been fantastic. He is always on top of it and gets back with me right away. He has been very helpful without a doubt.

"​Jim was an exceptional attorney to work with. Jim was very open and honest with the case and with where I stood and what I should agree/disagree with. Any time I had a question/comment/concern, Jim was available even on weekends. The line of communication was amazing and even though divorce is hard, hiring Jim was definitely the right decision for me as a father. My ex wife did not make this case easy but Jim went into it full stream and fought for me. Only thing I would say, Jim, be even more aggressive in future especially in the crazy and messed up cases but thank you for helping me get through it, for being there whenever I needed you, and just being a friend to a dad who needed one. Thanks again​."
​"James has done a great job in keeping me up to date on the progress of my divorce and the process itself. He has taken the time to write me detailed briefs on the divorce process and how that process and divorce law will impact me directly. I am very satisfied with the representation he has provided me."
"​Jim was a consummate professional who answered my questions and responded to my gripes, whines, and complaints in a timely manner. Communication, professionalism, courtesy, and non-judgement were exceptional. I felt confident the advice and collaboration of the team helped in a challenging situation.​"
