James Christie came highly recommend by a friend. So glad I listened to them. I had four major changes against me. These all occurred were I live in rural Alaska. James was able to work outside of Anchorage with the Palmer Court System. He worked hard with the Municipal Prosecutor with good arguments and was able to settle with a plea agreement and a fine on a lesser charge, which I gracefully accepted.

Ben, is the best lawyer anyone can find. Trust me, I have had a lot of lawyers in my life and to me, lawyers are an expensive frustrating lot. But Ben is different. I first hired him, I was skeptical, but Ben proved to be the best lawyers I have ever had a chance to work with. He took time to learn about my case, never infrated the bill or worried about billing hours, researched the law, wrote every motion that needed to be filed and kept me informed regularly.

I'm very glad I chose Mr. Herz as my lawyer. He was able to set a schedule and follow through to get the desired result in my case. From the very beginning, he was very straight forward and honest. He kept me updated on my case and was able to reach a favorable outcome despite any complications. He was very straightforward and friendly, and I'm extremely happy that he tied things up so well at the end.
