Jim defended me billiantly some 20 years ago from a series of bogus administrative charges brought against me by Nassau County. He wrote a one of a kind letter summarizing my case by using Shakespeare characters and quotes with legalese which totally rattled the opponents. I eventally pevailed in federal court and won a considerable sum at the time thanks to his remarkable defense plan. A great lawyer with a booming voice has now passed.
