    James Cope has evil running through his veins. He does not care about his clients he only cares about himself and making himself look good. He is the type to "kick them while their down". I went to Jim for help and he belittled me, made me feel like I was so stupid. He gave me so little hope and made me feel like I was the bad guy when I was looking to pay him to help me. Needless to say I did not hire him. I hired someone else who took one look at my case and won easily.
