How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I chose bankruptcy because of the life-altering effects that it can have. Although many people view it as the end, I know that I can use it to help clients clear their slates and have a fresh start.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I believe all clients should work to self-educate themselves so that they can stay informed and involved as we work together to reach their desirable result.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am always willing to review documents that I believe will help me in my efforts to help my clients.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

My client and I will discuss their individual situation and how I will best be able to help them.

James Cole Fulks

I previously worked in Presidio County as County Attorney and in Fort Worth as an Assistant City Attorney. My long-time experience in the legal field has given me a full understanding of the law and how to best help my clients navigate through it.

My extensive experience in the legal field has given me a unique perspective. I am able to offer my clients the benefit of my many years working in the legal field in my efforts to help them navigate through their legal process.

I am meticulous in my efforts to help my clients. I know that success is often in the details and will therefore work tirelessly to make sure that I exhaustively comb through every individual nuance.

Personal interests:

When I am not practicing law, I like to spend time with my family and serve as a civilian volunteer in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.
