  • James Huber has been my personal attorney for over ten years.  I consult him for everything.  We met while I was a co-owner of a wildly successful electronic payments sales organization.  James brought his experience in the electronic payments space and a cut throat tenacity that helped our company be successful through mergers, going public, and asset sales.  James represented me and my partner personally during that time and we were glad to have him out front making sure that we were protected legally. I have continued to use Huber and Global for many projects, and highly recommend their services.  As a venture capitalist, it’s important to have your own personal attorney looking out for your interests alone, and Huber is a beast.  Despite that he’s really easy going and fun to work with, when he flips the switch, you definitely are glad that he’s on your side.
  • Huber is the man!  First, I consider James a friend.  But we became friends after he really helped me navigate some dicey deals in the VC space.  I had James as my personal lawyer, but then we used him to represent the joint venture too as he gained my partners’ trust too.  This worked well a number of times.  I appreciate James’s friendship, and ultimately respect his skills in the electronic payments and general legal space.  I am stoked that he’s on my side!

  • Global was very helpful with my MATCH case! They have over 10 years’ worth of experience in the Payments Litigation industry, and it shows! James Huber and Chris Dryden are recognized experts in the payments space, and I do highly recommend their services to others!

  • Any time one of my vendors or affiliates get sued, I contact Chris & James because I know that my valued relationships with those referrals are in good hands, and will survive the lawsuit.

  • The attorneys and support staff at Global Legal Law Firm were incredibly understanding of my situation. They worked efficiently and communicated with me regularly about the status of my case. I came out of the process with a better understanding of Reserve Fund cases and how to combat them. Global not only won my case, but through their advisement, left my business stronger and more resilient. Thanks, Global Legal!

  • I contacted Global Legal Law Firm when I found out I had been put on the MATCH list. They responded promptly and professionally and assured me they could handle my case. And Global did just that! In under six weeks, I had been taken off the MATCH list. I always came away from conversations with Global Legal’s attorneys feeling reassured by their skill and high levels of expertise. Global will always be my first choice for electronic payments litigation!

  • I loved how well Global Legal Law Firm balanced their law practice and customer service. The Global team was attentive to my needs each step of the way! I felt reassured knowing that my case was important to them. I highly recommend them – they are skilled and dedicated to their clients.

  • I went to Global Legal Law Firm’s offices for intensive training on customer service, retention, and legal rebuttal training. I quickly realized how welcoming and down to earth Global was — I felt right at home and learned so much. They taught me how to handle every situation, and now know how the smallest slip up can change a small problem to a huge one. After the trip I was able to create a systemic company policy that has increased our profits. We do not give in to each merchant that threatens us with a lawsuit; we have full confidence in our contracts, rebuttals and procedures. But if it does escalate, I can relax knowing that Global Legal Law Firm will take care of the rest.

  • Global Legal Law Firm has helped our retention of valued merchants tremendously. Due to Global Legal Law Firm, we have observed a substantial increase on the quantity of merchants that decide to come back on board and continue processing with Payment Systems once Global Legal Law Firm is involved. Global Legal Law Firm has also helped train our Customer Service department to keep retention rate up and our attrition rate down. We foresee a substantial decrease on the losses to the company directly related to Global Legal Law Firm’s training, performance, and direct involvement. Thank you Chris and James!

  • Global Legal Law Payments Industry Attorney’s James Huber and Chris Dryden leveled the playing field against a top national law firm and their client. Their reputation as litigation experts with deep Payments knowledge brought instant clarity and credibility to a highly contentious, high stakes, Payments / FEHA Employment case which has escalated to the highest court in the State of California. When the stakes were the highest, Attorney James Huber heroically stood shoulder-to-shoulder with me, and went toe-to-toe against Industry giants. Thanks you James and Chris, for your dedication and professionalism.
