"We were looking for a lawyer for an open adoption. David Thurman came highly recommended from friends and colleagues in Charlotte. When we asked friends of ours, that are lawyers in Chicago, they reached out to their alumni and confirmed our choice also. Our case should have been very simple. However, our open adoption became very complicated before our son was even born. We could have walked away, but we had already made a commitment to save this child. Fortunately for us, David was on our side. The amount of research that David and the firm did, really made all the difference. To be honest, we did not know what to expect in the court room. David had all the right questions and prepped us and our family for every possibility. In the end, we won our case and have a beautiful son in our lives. We owe that all to David Thurman."
– One very happy family.

"James was more than my legal counsel; he was fully invested in my situation and often checked in to see how I was doing emotionally. James earned my immense respect as a legal scholar. He evidently has a great amount of respect amongst his peers in the legal community – on and off the bench. This proved to be a very valuable asset when it came to James dialoguing with opposing counsel and consequently working out a settlement that allowed me and my wife to move onward with our lives and put a very unfortunate situation behind us."
