"Jim was recommended by a business partner. Jim’s expertise and experience was quite obvious from a client perspective. However, what was most impressive was the distinct impression of personal and business integrity. Simply put: Top Shelf Experience."
"Jim is not only a most professional attorney both in the court but also in other legal matter representation. His warm personality helps in client communication. His demeanor is always reflecting a calm, kind manor. It is so reassuring to me knowing that I have Jim as my attorney."
"Jim Bacon is a 10 out of a 10 and that goes for everyone that works at the firm. I know they have my back and allow me to run my businesses. Personally, I have recommended Jim and the firm to many of my friends and they all thank me and feel the same. There is no one or no firm that comes close to providing legal services. I feel sorry for any other lawyer that has to go up against Jim!!"
"I am extremely pleased with this law office! I needed to do a will and Lucy Boerum was amazing. She was patient and kind, yet very knowledgeable. I had to make a lot of difficult decisions, but Lucy made it easy for me. She was always available to simplify a concept and explain a definition. It took me time to make my decisions, and this office never pressured me to hurry up. Life is busy and I had to delay several times, but Lucy’s attitude was always comforting and understanding. Thanks to her, I finally finished my will and can sleep better at night. This is a very efficient, low key, nice office to work with. I can’t say enough good things about them. They are all intelligent and kind."
"I can’t say enough good things about the services I received while working with this firm. They not only got me through the legal process but took a personal interest in making sure they did everything they could on my behalf. That is something you don’t find every day in working with a legal firm. I highly recommend their services. Helpful, knowledgeable, and top notch!"
"An extremely capable and professional firm. Truly exemplary. Mr. Warner Young is an excellent attorney and Ms. Lucy Boerum is very efficient and competently handled all the office affairs. Very approachable and gracious in their dealings too. I strongly recommend their services and wish them all the very best."
"I am extremely happy with services I received from this law firm. I have used several attorneys within this firm on various legal matters. They are always professional and more importantly they listen to your legal matter before offering an opinion. I have finally found a law firm where personal connections and legal services are equally important to the firm. Both are attributes that make this firm stand out from their peers. I would definitely refer this firm to my friends."
"Mr. Stephen Halfhill, Esquire and the other professionals at ABHY handled both my divorce case and my custody agreement. The divorce was very straight forward, but the custody case was very difficult for me and Mr. Halfhill and his associates were able to successfully get a fair custody agreement in place that was fair to everyone especially my son. The billing was fair and all of the attorney fees definitely paid off for me and my son. I highly recommend this firm for family law and the other law practices done in their office."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Allred, Bacon, Halfhill & Young for more than 7 years, mostly in the area of elder care. Attorney Warner Young and Paralegal Lucy Boerum have provided superb legal advice and outstanding client service. Their performance has exceeded my high expectations. They have been professional, responsive, communicative, thorough, patient, persistent, and pleasant in all of my dealings with them. I would highly recommend this firm."
"We are always treated respectfully, no matter the issue. Their advice is always “spot-on” and we have relied on their help and counsel many times."
