I do not live in state. I had to hire a lawyer for a custody issue and not only did he take my consult on the spot, my matter was resolved within a matter of days. The advice he gave me, was in the best interest of my child because I would have done differently.

Mr Metzger was great. He provided a great service to my son Zachary at a much better value than other attorneys. He arrived at court on time and prepared to defend and support my son and the positive outcome of work release was because of him

Unfortunately, I had to retain a attorney for forfeiture. Luckily, I retained James. He was insightful, professional and understanding of the stress this process brings on clients. I definitely would recommend Mr. Metzger to anyone facing legal challenges.

James was excellent with service and knowledge! I had a complex situation and he found the "needle in the haystack" that cleared me and enabled me to proceed in life proactively. If there is any opportunity to enhance your life or loved ones for the better, James is your man. He will communicate a game plan, relay consequences of options and proceed as requested. Excellent lawyer, he's a positive life changing professional if the opportunity is there! He's your man!!

I enjoyed working with James. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and able to put the law into terms I could understand. The cost of his services was more than fair, and my outcome from my case was positive. If I ever find that I need a attorney again, James will definitely be the first person I call!

James is the superhero knowledge genius to show you the way to go when everyone else has you running in circles. He can get the thing done for you. He's a great person to have on your side. His daughter is surprisingly super cute. 😂 And James has a good sense of humor. He's the whole package.

  Most cases are not won with a Perry Mason type moment in front of a dozen stunned jurors sitting in a packed courtroom; far from it.  Indeed, less than ten percent of cases ever go to trial at all.  Most often it is the behind the scenes skill set of an experienced and well-versed attorney that make the difference.  Skills such as being able to ascertain all of the facts in the case through proper use of legal tools such as depositions and other discovery, researching and understanding exactly how the law applies to those facts once ascertained, proper filing and arguing appropriate motions to the court such as motions to suppress evidence, being able to evaluate your opponent’s position and likely strategy, identifying the intangibles in a case including evaluation of how a witness might be perceived by a court regardless of her testimony, and the ability to harness these skills to artfully negotiate with your opponent are often what leads to a favorable outcome for the client.   These are all skills I have honed for nearly two decades.
