"When all is said and done, he wants the same people who were living in his house before all this happened to still be living there," his attorney Joe Yanny tells PEOPLE. "And he wants to save his marriage with the woman he loves more than anything in his life."
James, who checked into the treatment facility last month after allegations of infidelity against wife Sandra Bullock, "is doing as well as he can be," says Yanny. "He's focusing on what he's doing and trying to make himself better."
His lawyer also believes the media has gone too far with constant coverage and by naming the treatment facility.
"The First Amendment was not meant to cover the sexual lives of people who are not in office," says Yanny. "This is sheer voyeurism and bullying, pure and simple. It's disgusting."
