If you have a no contest case he's probably "OK";
Personally, I found him unable to keep up with the moderate complexities of my case. While preping for a court appearance, and after no response to a simple request for status on 2-3 important issues (after calling, & emailing him five times) my close friends told me to fire him.
I finally got a hold of Jim Brumund, and asked if he was hospitalized or something similar. No was the answer... he offered no explanation, no excuse, nor apology for being unresponsive, and I let him know I felt he was doing a poor job... (note to self: be careful when criticizing your attorney, even when he is incompetent !)
On more than one occasion, I had to retrieve and refax important evidentuary documents that he lost. When we did appear in court, Jim was a natural born follower (of the opposing counsel!) and the other attorney easily made him look incompetent.
Working with him in his office was an experience too - His secretary kept sighing, gasping, and I found it comical to watch her repeatedly roll her eyes in contempt as the three of us prepared a ~55 page filing. (Fortunately the secretary was competent and meticulous.)
I had occasion to use the services of one of his partners, and was unhappy to see the way he influenced them ( since he is the "Senior Partner...") It was then that I realized that using Brumund Jacobs Hammel-Davidson was one big mistake.
I spent in the neighborhood of eleven thousand dollars, and consider it worse than a sunk cost --since he set a precedent that the judge and my new attorney had to fix.

Bottom line- he was not worth his fees, let alone the premium he charges; If you want a sharp, aggressive lawyer, there are far better attorneys above, below, and across the street from his office. Save yourself the heartburn and stay away.
