    Gail is extremely responsive and is focused on solving the problem at hand. If conventional avenues won't work then Gail thinks outside the box in search for the solution.

    The attorney that handled my account did a very nice job. However, his partner padded the billing on the project very blatantly and the associate was unable to get satisfactory resolution for us in this matter. Messages left with the managing partner of the Jackson, MS branch to discuss the matter went unreturned. Very poor value for the money with very unethical billing issues. Complaint resolution nonexistent.

    Anton Mertens did not prepare for my case and when he arrived for settlement he begged me to settle. I was young,a single Mom with a 4 yr old Son and 1 yr old Daughter. I settled because Anton Mertens did not offer my any alternatives and I was poorly represented by him. My house was taken away from me and I was homeless with my 2 children because of his ineptitude as an attorney.

    I have worked closely with Jim on a number of matters and referred some clients to him for help. He is an exceptional attorney and well-deserving of an AV rating.
