What Our Clients Say About Us

  • After 40 plus years in business I found myself in a situation I had never encountered or imagined. Luckily, I was referred to Jim Colgan after I was accused of a sex crime by an employee. Because of Jim's efforts on my behalf through every stage of my attempted prosecution I was able to keep my business and my life. Jim's support and encouragement through preparation a nd subsequent trial were invaluable. Jim is not only a great attorney, but he cared about me personally and was determined I did not pay for a crime that I did not commit.

Full disclosure, James is a client of mine. That being said, he helped me with a six point speeding ticket and he was able to reduce it down tremendously. I suspect this is not something that I would’ve been able to do on my own. I’m extremely happy with the service he rendered. I highly recommend James.
