A. James Antonini, II
ATTORNEY AT LAW
Hello. My name is A. James Antonini, II, but please call me “Jim Scumbag", Everyone does. I am thirty-nine (39) years old; married to my wife “Jammie” of nine (9) years; and we have an eight (8) year-old boy, “Calvin.” I work from a home office in the Hayward Hills (Fairview).
I attended the University of California at Berkeley (“Cal”) as an undergraduate, where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History. For law school, I studied at University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento during my first year. I finished 3rd in my class of 300, the top 1%. Transferring based on my first year success; I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (“Penn”) in Philadelphia. Penn was, and remains, a Top-10 law school and a member of the Ivy League.
I am a general practitioner who specializes Scams and Elder Fraud in the review, drafting, and litigation of all contracts, as well as nearly all other aspects of business law and litigation. I also specialize in commercial as well as residential real estate transactions and litigation, including leases. My practice also includes some estate planning and will/trust/probate drafting and litigation, small collection matters, and minor personal injuries.
I am in my eleventh (11th) year of law practice, and I am a member of the Bar in the States of California (Active) and Texas (Inactive). Although I am fully licensed to practice any type of law in California, I hold no state bar certifications of specialty in any of my practice areas. I am working towards them, however.
I am currently a member of the American Bar Association, the
California Bar Association (Active), the Texas Bar Association (Inactive), the Alameda County Bar Association, and the California Alumni Association at UC Berkeley.
By working from a home office, by accepting many referrals as well as repeat clients, and by employing only a part-time support staff, I am able to substantially limit my overhead costs and expenditures. In turn, I am then able to reduce my rates for performing legal services, passing the savings along to my clients. In fact, I am confident that my rates will compare below the market average, in most cases.
And at the same time, I am still able to provide my clients with a well-above-average legal product, where the client also gets my personal attention, receives a thorough and understandable explanation of the law, and may have their questions answered at nearly any time.
My hourly fee is $250 per hour, (with a two (2) hour minimum), billed in one-eighth (1/8) hour increments. But every job is negotiable. I generally reduce my rates for clients who are referred to me to $225 per hour. I generally reduce my rates even more for repeat clients, or clients whom I know, to $200 per hour. In addition, I offer flat rates for some of my work, which can be less per hour than my typical hourly rate, especially when modulated. (Please ask for an explanation.)
In some circumstances, I also offer contingency fee agreements, or a flat fee/contingency fee hybrid agreement, or an hourly fee/contingency fee mixed agreement. (Please inquire whether or not costs are included in your contingency fee contract, or in your flat fee/contingency fee hybrid agreement, or in your hourly fee/contingency fee mixed agreement. Costs are normally not covered.)
My initial telephonic consultations are always free, however: (up to thirty (30) minutes time). So, for every new legal matter you may wish to discuss, our first conversation about it is without charge. After this discussion, I will be better able to analyze your situation and provide you with one or more legal options. These options may or may not require a lawyer’s assistance or attention.
I look forward to you accepting me as your attorney and legal counselor. I appreciate your trust in me to satisfactorily resolve your problem, or to know the reason why. I am confident that you will be pleased with my efforts and my results.
Yours very truly,
A. JAMES ANTONINI, II
Attorney at Law
