Attentive, Focused, & Dependable
We’re waiting to hear the judge’s decision on my case and even without knowing the outcome I feel good about hiring James Pratt. From the beginning something that stood out to me was the great response time and communication from Mr. Pratt. My previous lawyer was so difficult to get ahold of he never returned my calls in a timely fashion, but with Mr. Pratt the communication was prompt and clear. All of his emails were very direct and explained well so that I could understand them. He helped me along this whole stressful process every step of the way. When it came time for trial I could tell Mr. Pratt did his homework and paid close attention to all the details of my case. He spotted every important detail in all the evidence and used them to explain our side of the story. His court room demeanor was also excellent he had a good rapport with the judge & prosecutor. While the prosecutor was shuffling his papers reaching to come up with something trying to poke holes in my defense Mr. Pratt was calm and direct highlighting all of our points to the judge in a way that sounded indisputable. I was nervous before going to my first trial but once I saw Mr. Pratt in action I felt more and more calm as the trial went on. And again even though we’re still waiting on a verdict I really do feel Mr. Pratt did his best effort in presenting our case and I already feel satisfied now no matter what the outcome. You can’t control what the judge will ultimately do in the end but I feel better knowing a really good job was done.
Mr. Pratt was a lawyer for my son in a Federal case. As a mother, this has been one of the most devastating ordeals I have gone through, nothing in life prepares you for something like this. Mr. Pratt had been my son’s lawyer for approximately 11 months before I was introduced to him. My connection with Mr. Pratt was only 2 months before my son’s sentencing, in that scant few months, I came to know Mr. Pratt as someone I could trust and who was up front and honest with me, I felt completely at ease with him. He worked tirelessly on my son’s case, and many times when I emailed questions or concerns to him, he would reply back to me, many times after what I know was much past his 9-5 work day. He went to see my son many times to go over his case with him, answer any questions my son would have and to counsel him on what he felt was best for him. My son may times relayed to me how kind Mr. Pratt was and how he was genuinely concerned for him and his case, he felt totally in good hands with Mr. Pratt as his attorney. Since my son’s sentencing, I have contacted Mr. Pratt numerous times with questions or requests, his reply back to me is almost immediate and never has he made me feel that I am imposing or taking up his time, always very gracious. I must admit, I did not have contact with my son in the earlier months, this by my choice, when Mr. Pratt first contacted me, I still chose not to have contact with my son. Never once did Mr. Pratt pressure me into having contact with my son, but what he did make me realize through his kindness and compassion is that my son did indeed need family support. I cannot express what this has meant to me as well as my son. Mr Pratt. has assured me that I did raise a good family and that my son is a good person and has just lost his way and hopefully through much needed help and family support can find his way back. This advice shows me that not only is Mr. Pratt a good attorney, but a genuine, kind and compassionate person. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. Pratt, not only did he represent my son to the best of his ability, he helped me, as a mother, travel one of the hardest paths in ones life. Mr. Pratt went above and beyond my expectations and did a tremendous job!!!!
Fear and Grace in Kansas
Jim is a hard working advocate with genuine concern for my well being. He handled my case in an effective low key manner with no drama or theatrics. That’s not to say Jim didn’t get emotionally involved in his work. He was immediate, caring and assuring in his contacts with my family. I hired him because he was highly recommended and his credentials are impressive. The outcome of the case far exceeded my expectations. Jim and I remain friends and I am forever grateful for his part in the grace bestowed on me and my family.

With my case difficult even as it was Mr. Pratt put in the time and effort to seek out every available option for me and he presented to me and made it very clear what would be best for me and then was able to advise me further when the time came to make the decision and help me to make difficult choices a lot easier.
James Pratt helped me on a felony charge
When I found out through a news article that I had to be in Federal Court the next week I got online and looked for attorneys in Wichita and found James Pratt. I called and visited with him and then went to office next day. He has helped me understand my case from beginning to end and did what he said he would.
