James Eccleston Shares His Thoughts OnWallStreet

Recently, James Eccleston shared his thoughts on the battle some advisers face when choosing to represent themselves against experienced corporate attorney's. It's "the equivalent of Michael Jordan having a one-on-one with a third grader," says James Eccleston.  Explaining that advisers can oftentimes find themselves in unfair situations, potentially losing out on large sums of money. 

"Most [promissory note] agreements will contain a clause to repay the firm that portion of the unpaid promissory note balance upon any kind of termination, whether that termination is for cause or not for cause or even wrongful," James Eccleston said.

I learned two important things working with Eccleston Law. First, I made a friend and ally with Jim and Steph for life. Secondly, and this is a crucial life lesson - if you need counsel, then seek out the very best. Jim was referred to me by a most trusted source. I've never had to hire an attorney for anything. Now, I know the value of hiring an important partner. Meticulous, thorough and detailed in preparation is the best way to describe Jim. Brilliant too, I might add. Bottom line, I would highly highly recommend Jim and Stephany for your legal needs. One of the best life decisions I've ever made.
