I had James M Butler Electric come to my home to give me an up to date Electrical evaluation on the current condition of my electrical system, it took Mr Butler about three hours, starting from the basement and working his way up to the attic room by room until he was complete. At the end of the job he generated an itemized list of what needed to be addressed so there would be no chance of a fire. The cost of the job was 225.00$ which I thought was very reasonable seeing all the work he did. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an electrician.
James is a talented young man. He is one of the few who will come out for a free estimate. He rewired my old house and got the job done in a reasonable amount of time. He provided me with a proposal for the work, and the cost, before I hired him. He is a hard worker, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to get electrical work done.

I called Jim to have a small job -- an electrical panel upgrade -- done in my apartment. He quoted me $800 ahead of time which he and I both agreed would be the price. The work took him one day. It was a small panel with eight breakers. At the end of the job, when the work was done, he said it would be $900 and he complained and tried to make up an excuse that the circuit breakers cost him an extra $100. He also mentioned that he knew I went to an Ivy League school (creepy) and that I should pay.
Be careful. If this guy sees a way to screw you out of more money (even a little), he'll do it. The breakers he was talking about cost no more than $25 and were included in the original $800 quote.
The actual workmanship was fair. He left a big gap around my panel and now I have to find a finish carpenter to put in molding. A more careful cut or use of a flush mounted panel wouldn't have required this.

I recently used Mr. James Butler as the electrician to do the wiring in an old house. The general comment is that although he is young but he is pretty good and experienced. Although he told me that he was a one man show when he came to interview for the job, he gave me a surprise right away by bringing a helper to do the job who did probably 80% of the work. His hourly rate is the lowest for all the electrician I interviewed and for a small job I would definitely recommend him. As for a big job, please make sure he gave you a detailed quote which was one thing I did not do. I believed in him about that he worked very fast and he could finish the job in less than 3 days. It finally cost me four times more than my expectation even though he doubled the work and I could not even fire him in the middle because he pulled a permit. Still I am happy now because it was finished. I wish that I negotiated a price with him upfront instead of letting him charge me by hour and materials which he never showed me the receipt. I definitely learned a lesson from this. However, he is definitely not the most expensive one even considering that because I got one quote more expensive than my final cost. Also at least all the light switches including those three-way and four-way switches all working properly. Although there were two ceiling fans which were working but later he told me he could not get them work so I had to buy new ceiling lights.
I have been reading all those internet reviews by other people before I chose a contractor. This is definitely my real experience not a made-up. Hopefully it will be helpful to you. I would recommend him as long as you know how much you are going to pay him upfront.
