I called Josephine and was told she was in a meeting so I left a message. I had done that earlier in the day with a different lawyer and was never called back, but Josephine (also known as Jody), called me back within an hour. She was compassionate and understanding and listened to the mess I have gotten myself into. She was knowledgeable of the laws (one lawyer wanted $700 just to research the law and then more to actually help me). Mine was a simple case, but she treated it as if it were top priority. When we met, she was so easy to talk to and quickly eased my embarrassment and concerns. I HIGHLY recommend Jody! She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, proactive, quickly understood my situation, and treated me with kind compassion.
My case was being handled by an attorney who seemed to have no motivation for my case to end. I felt like I was his cash cow. In my darkest hour, I was referred to Ms. Hallam, and she immediately made me feel like my case was the most important one she had ever worked on. We met at her office for a consultation, she listened to the details of my case without judgement, and she immediately created a plan of action if I were to hire her. She truly cares about her clients and works hard to make sure they get the best possible outcome. Ever since I hired her, I have felt like there is someone on my side who understands the law and the criminal justice system better than anyone else I have spoken to. I highly recommend her without hesitation and feel safe with her representing me.
I came to Josephine with an order of protection against me and after being told by many attorneys not to request a hearing. Despite many difficulties in language and culture, she listened to me, evaluated my situation, gave me information on pros and cons of a request of hearing for a restraining order; and she let me make my own decision. My hearings were extended to two sessions as it involved many witnesses and other factors. It was a very stressful time, and I’m prepared for the worst. If it’s not her flying her hardest for me, I could never make it through such a depressing and darkest time in my marriage. She’s always informative, supportive, and responsive no matter how busy she is. I would highly recommend Jody to anyone who’s looking for a highly professional, compassionate, understanding, and caring attorney. She listened without judging and would act for her clients’ best interests. “Thank you” is the least thing I can do to show my gratitude for what she’s done for me.
What a pleasure to meet Ms. Hallam! A very trying time in our lives was met with total respect, compassion, caring, devotion and trust. We were told what to expect during the hearing process and were thus prepared. Although nervous, we came out of court filled with gratitude and relief!
She is sweet and informative, and responded to many of my aching questions promptly. I did not feel judged whatsoever. I get the sense that she genuinely cares about me and my situation, and is more than willing to get me through this rough patch in my life with a simple consultation (and for free!) I wish I can hug her and express how much light she has shed and clarity she has provided regarding one of the scariest moments in my life. 5 stars.
Hallam is intelligent, diligent, knowledgeable and the best person to have on your side when you need. If you have a criminal issue, call her.
Attorney Hallam listened to my situation during the consultation with a compassionate approach. She asked pointed questions related to the case and provided sound and respectful advice to follow. Attorney Hallam maintained a level of professionalism and displayed a genuine concern towards the issue.
After searching for an attorney and speaking with a few of them whom all seemed over priced beyond over priced, I found Josephine Hallam. I am very happy to have found her as she is very caring and understanding. Josephine Hallam took her time and make time for me with no obligations, it didn't matter if I contacted her thru phone call a text message or via email she always replied quick and answered all of my questions making me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend Josephine Hallam to any one facing a legal issue! I would hire her at any time given without a doubt. She was like an Angel fallen from heaven that guided me. Josephine Hallam you are the BEST & ROCK !! She is the one you want and are looking for in your legal issue.
Hello, I have recently relocated from out of state to the Phoenix metropolitan area. Prior to moving I accepted a position where a full back round check would occur. Not quite sure what would appear I did one on myself and found I had an active warrant from over ten years ago. Nervous and a little frustrated I started contacting defense attorneys for representation. After speaking with a handful of attorney's paralegals; never actually speaking with the defense attorney I was trying to contact, who seemed over priced and quick to deal, I finally found Josephine Hallam. She personally answered the call, even though it was after 5pm on a Friday. Josephine immediately put my mind at ease with the situation I was facing. After actually listening to me she answered all of my questions in a straight forward fashion. She is extremely personable and understanding, and she truly does care about her clients. I retained her services the very next day even though I was still 1500mi away. Josephine and her paralegal, Lindsay, went to work for me straight away. She lays out the facts and gives you the best possible choices for you to move forward in. After meeting with her for the first time I was even more impressed with her character and her mastery of her craft. My case is currently ongoing, so I won't get into specifics, but I feel very strongly in Josephine Hallams' ability to fight side by side with me through the whole process. I would highly recommend Josephine Hallam if you are in the unfortunate situation where you require a defense attorney. She is a rock star.
I reached out to several diffrent lawyers and after brief conversation I still felt uneasy. It was not until I called Hallam Law Group and spoke with Josephine Hallam herself, not a representative, not her assistant but to her did I feel so much better. She was very informative, caring and treated me like I mattered and not just another client. She didn't rush me, she listened and before we hung up she made sure I was ok, had no more questions and reassured me that I could call her if I needed anything else. If I am ever to need a lawyer, I WOULD DEFINITELY HIRE THIS PHENOMENAL, CARING, LAWYER Ms. Josephine Hallam. Thank you for our talk, thank you for putting my mind at ease, I can rest now. With your informative conversation and knowing I found the best person to represent me if a lawyer is what I need makes my entire day.
Though it wasn't her forte (because she is a criminal defense lawyer), she had responded to my emails, questions etc. The day I met with her at her office for the consultation, she was honestly very attentive, and she knew what to look for without me having to explain much, and she was so kind as to go above and beyond and relay some issues to the prosecutors, to take a look at my case. Yesterday, I finally had someone from the attorney general's investigators contact me regarding the issue of a former employer stealing thousands of dollars from me throughout the years. I have to say even after the consultation I felt such a weight lifted off my shoulders and a sense of everything is going to be all right, so I can breathe. I must say she also had a very all-around great personality and laughed and appreciated my honesty with a bit of sense of humor! Thank you so very much... I hope to keep you in my corner, because you really made things happen, opened doors, that I couldn't no matter what...
I have not been charged with a crime but I am very worried that I could be, and it would absolutely destroy my family. 12 years ago was my last possession of marijuana charge that's all I've ever had in my life but I do have two or three felonies from those and so therefore the charge that I am worried about could be very serious. She was very quick to answer any questions I had. She even offered to show up to my initial arraignment if it happens for free. Now hopefully I never need her services and hopefully no new charges are ever filed but I would like to say thank you. I appreciate your compassion for others it's a rare trait in people these days. I can honestly say that if Jody takes the time to talk to you she will listen your questions and it's important to pay attention. I didn't exactly get news I wanted to hear but I got the truth.
When I was in jail, Ms. Hallam was going to come to visit with me to do our consultation. Although, she had just missed me as I was in the releasing process. Despite that, I later contacted her and I met with her. She was very understanding of my case and looked up all the information regarding it. She was honest and did not charge me, whereas another lawyer my family told me to go to was less helpful and more about the money. Even though I really have no ongoing case, she still continued to help me in areas of my life my case has effected me where I need legal help. Honestly, if anything should come up, I would not hesitate to hire her on as my lawyer.
I had a few specific questions that I wanted legal advise with, and when I met with Josephine, the consultation she offered me was absolutely worth it. Josephine was able to review any legal documents and gave her advise in a clear and precise manner, where she also gave slight examples of her experience with criminal defense. If you are looking to hire an attorney or just need legal advise, like I did, do not waste anymore time and contact Josephine.
"I consulted with Josephine about my case and she has been nothing but kind and helpful with any and all questions I have had. She has truly gone out of her way to help me receive the guidance and information needed to handle this scary situation. I highly recommend speaking with her."
“Jody is an excellent attorney, who truly cares about her clients and their outcomes. I have witnessed her negotiation skills, securing significantly better results and settlements. She fights tirelessly for her clients and is an amazing advocate. ”
“ consulted with Jodi on a potential scenario that would have impacted me in a serious manner. Jodi clearly explained my options to consider and the rights that I have to protect my innocence. She is a great communicator and paints the big picture while providing legal tactical guidance in the midst of a process which I had no experience with. I felt very comfortable with the guidance Jodi provided and felt assured that my best interests were being addressed! I highly recommend Jodi for any situation where you need legal guidance on how best to protect your innocence!"
"Mrs Hallam was more than amazing for me. Her knowledge, her compassion, and her ability to empathize is what stands out. She gave me thorough knowledge on the situation and made sure I knew the options that were available. When talking to the judge she was on point and direct with a good argument (and I had a tough judge). Throughout my case, I was able to contact her with any questions even while incarcerated. I trusted her when she said she will do her best and my family did as well. Her best was literally that. I would recommend her to everyone. "
"There I was.. lost, confused, I was about to lose everything. At first facing a felony didn’t hit me as hard as it should have.. so I was ‘googling’ “Scottsdale Lawyers” the NIGHT before my 3rd preliminarily hearing.. I would get the “come in for a consultation” about ten times before I called Josephine Hallam.. she was the only one who asked me a couple questions and gave me advice without expecting anything.. I asked if she was available the next morning.. she had another case before and after mine.. but she made it work. Hiring her was the best thing I had ever done.. I had the public defenders telling me to take a plea, even my own mother was convinced I should take the plea.. but Ms. Hallam was confident in me, which made me confident in myself and the justice system.. so we proceeded to take it to trial.. I was sick in thought of what could happen at the next court date.. I couldn’t eat, sleep. until she emailed me and said “I will fight as hard as I can to get this dismissed. I promise. You’re a strong woman and you’ll get through this”. This brought me so much comfort in just the fact that someone was fighting for me when before it seemed like everyone was against me.. and if they weren’t against me I was just another name in a folder for the day.. the next court date came and Ms. Hallam got my case dismissed she did the seemingly impossible and made it look easy, although it was far from, she put in a lot of work, time, and energy and it saved my life completely. Josephine Hallam is an amazing Lawyer, but a even better person."
