Great service! We loved working with Monica, very easy and hassle-free processing. All processes were very quick, thorough and responsive! Would recommend 10/10!
He does not hold back. He tells you just like it is - good or bad, the way it should be. He takes an honest approach toward matters with a positive outlook, and his paralegal is kind, receptive, and competent. I would highly recommend this firm!
The best family attorney in Springfield. Very satisfied! They kept in contact with me and always keep me informed. Expert-level representation. If you need the Best, call Jim! Prices are fair. Payment plans aren't unreasonable, so it's still affordable for most people.
Competent and caring. I highly recommend this law firm!!! They went above and beyond to handle my case.
Attorney Jeremy Crowley and his paralegal Monica McGinnis helped my wife and I with immigration. They are very helpful and answer all questions promptly. The immigration process is complicated and I do not think we would have been able to complete all the forms and applications without the help of Crowley and McGinnis.
They where very polite
I went through a four year custody battle and Jim was handed the case halfway through. He made the transition perfectly. He has always responded to calls and emails in a reasonable time frame (lawyers are busy so you can't always expect same day) and was always a pleasure to work with. Not all cases are the same, but i as a father seeking equal custody and primary residential status, Jim didn't give up, even though many lawyers told me I'd be lucky to get more than every other weekend. Even when it seemed like a losing battle he kept working hard and we got the custody agreement that we wanted. I can't guarantee the same results but I can tell you he will work as hard for you as he did for me.
Mr. James handled my case quick and inexpensive. His assistant was always helpful.
We have been working with Jim James for a little over 3 years now. Mr. James is an outstanding lawyer and has provided us with exceptional service, legal counsel, and personal advice. He had stood with us through the bad times and the good times. We would highly recommend Mr. James and the J B James Law Firm to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.
JB James has been a very good lawyer for me and my family! Very good family man, done great with injury, family will, criminal, etc.... Always in touch if not he will get back to you!!!! THANK YOU JIM FOR YOUR SERVICE
They are not only building their own business but also fixing the mess of the firm that was smith before... I can say honestly that they are trying and succeeding. It's hard to try and please stressed out people as well as follow the laws set before them and they honestly do a good job. Keep up the good work!
Great law firm. Would highly recommend this firm to anyone who needs an attorney.
These guys are great! Every time I've asked for help they have been right on point.
My wife was involved in a small car accident in 2009 where she was at fault, and Smith Montgomery took care of the court appearance and negotiated on her behalf a more favorable outcome.
Green card application
Monica was super nice to work with and very efficient. She was always helpful and answered any questions we had during entire green card process. From start to finish we began on February 22 with JBJ and received green card in mail on May 24...right at 3 months. Maybe a lot of luck involved as well, but could not be more pleased with entire process.
