I have had several cases with Jim in the past. I have always found him to be an upstanding individual and highly effective advocate for his clients. He has always been courteous and personable to me and my clients. I would strongly recommend him for AV status.

Mr. Horan is an excellent attorney who works hard for his clients. He is a zealous advocate and I would refer a family member to him if I had the opportunity!

Sadly, he can be too aggressive, even to non-parties. I choose not to go into details at this time.
