The Law Office of James E. Boren is a highly regarded, nationally-known firm that practices exclusively in the area of criminal defense, including representation in administrative and disciplinary proceedings. In addition to its statewide law practice, the firm has successfully managed many sophisticated multijurisdictional cases and investigations.

The firm has extensive experience defending the rights of people arrested and accused of criminal offenses at every stage of the case starting with the arrest. All clients wish to avoid trial, by dismissal of their case or by reducing the charges against them.  From the time Mr. Boren is retained as your legal representative, he begins investigating the case and exploring defenses. This can be very time consuming, but deciding a strategy of defense can only be done when the defense lawyer knows as much or more than the other side

When a person is arrested and charged with a crime, it is not the time to seek out a generalist. Criminal defense is all that Mr. Boren's firm does. Many law firms react on behalf of their clients to situations as they arise. Mr. Boren's goal is to help clients take charge of the situation as much as possible. Judges and prosecutors throughout the state know that he is always prepared when he walks through the courthouse door.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
