At the law office of James W. Magaha, my more than 34 years of experience and knowledge enable me to achieve targeted solutions faced by businesses and individuals throughout Santa Rosa, Okaloosa County and the Florida Panhandle. My goal is to offer sound counsel and good judgment, so that you can make the most informed decisions about your legal matters and your future. As a solo practitioner, I offer the personal attention necessary to provide solutions that fit your specific needs.
I welcome clients seeking quality representation from a lawyer who consistently develops long-lasting resolutions. As a Pensacola native, I have extensive knowledge and familiarity with Florida courts and procedures and with local judges and attorneys. For my professionalism and ethics, I have earned a BV® Distinguished Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, a rating derived from confidential assessments given by practicing lawyers and judges.
My practice is focused on bankruptcy law and wills, trusts and estate planning. My firm has also been designated as a debt relief agency. If it is in your best interests to avoid bankruptcy, I can convince creditors to lower your debts and accept reasonable monthly payments. If, after an assessment of your financial situation, we find that bankruptcy is the right choice for you, I can help you file for relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
I have personally worked with many Florida individuals and families to create comprehensive estate plans that ensure their children and other dependents and their assets are protected. Whether you need assistance with preparing wills, trusts or powers of attorney or appointing health care agents, I can formulate and implement your estate planning objectives in a tax-efficient manner.
