Mr. Wing is a professional at what he does. He handled my case personally and re-arranged his schedule to be at my court date. He comes highly recommended.

Attorney Wing represented me in my divorce after 28 years of marriage. He worked tirelessly to get the settlement (a lot of assets, alimony configurations etc) to a point where my former and I could agree to sign, thus avoiding Trial. He was particularly astute in recognizing when I was nervous, and was able to to calm me down and answer my most outrageous questions. Divorce is a long process and if you want the best representation for your money,I suggest you call James C Wing, Jr.

From the initial consultation Mr. Wing helped me navigate through the legal issues that I needed to confront. My daughter was born from a woman whom I was no longer in a relationship with. Due to the mother's drug abuse my daughter at birth was put into DCF foster care. This was not an easy time emotionally for me, my friends, and my family. Mr. Wing helped me gain visitation and after paternity results came back he helped get sole custody awarded to me. Furthermore he helped me get a visitation schedule in place so my daughter's mother can continue to have a relationship with her. Mr. Wing has been direct when advising me in situations and helped preserve the welfare of my daugher. Mr. Wing gets to the point when I speak with him and this has saved me both time and money. I am someone who has little background knowledge about family courts and Mr. Wing has been there with me every step of the way.

I highly recommend Attorney James Wing, Jr., anyone who finds themselves in need of legal representation. He helped our family with a complicated legal matter involving our son. His experience and knowledge enabled him to clearly communicate the situation to us. He was also very skilled in dealing with the court to obtain the best outcome possible. He insured that our son's interest were protected, and that he was treated fairly by the court.

In 7 weeks James Wing went through 10,000 of my divorce retainer and accomplished absolutely nothing. His communication skills are pitiful, does not return phone calls to his office("staffed" by one part time uninformed assistant), his cell phone does not accept messages. He charges fifteen cents for each page of copy(!). time and one half for "after hours" calls and emails, arrives at court without prior meeting or conversation with client and basically, "wings"it. He has a litany of excuses for being uninformed: away for the weekend, had the flu. He indulges in personal criticism of client "too emotional" but is soft on the opposition! Boastful and arrogant, he eats up time with tales of his legal victories and will discuss at length and tedium every case but yours. Hiring James Wing was a bigger mistake than marrying my husband.

I have used different lawyers throughout the last 7 years regarding my child and her other parent. James was very supportive in my endeavors and fought hard for the safety of my child. I wish that I was still in CT and could use him now as my attorney. He is a great lawyer and I highly reccomend him.

I was referred to Atty. Wiing concerning a legal malpractice suit and was delighted to find him above all compassionate to my situation and responsive to my questions. He reinstilled my faith in the legal profession and my belief in our system of law. I am a former law enforcement agent and have been in contact professionally with hundreds of lawyers and would highly recommend Atty. Wing

Attorney Wing represented me in a Criminal Case that, as a Young Man, would have subjected me to a bad foothold for future endeavors.
Attorney Wing worked with the Judiciary and with the Prosecution, and got my case dismissed- an outcome that would not would have happened without his hard work and persistence. His legal advice was spot on, and his follow through yielded results. I suggest Attorney Wing as a Defense Lawyer

Attorney Wing made me realize that after 16 years of marriage, I should not walk away empty handed, which I was prepared to do, simply to be done with the ordeal. Jim was persistent, thorough, professional and researched every detail to ensure the fairest end to the marriage, for me. I am so grateful for his professionalism, intelligence and integrity.

Mr. Wing became my attorney after I had lost all hope of the judicial system ever being fair after a hostile divorce. Due to his hard work, dedication, professionalism and attention to even minute details, I have recently been given equal time with my two girls. I can now enjoy the day to day experiences that most dads take for granted. None of this would have been possible without Mr. Wing's expertise

I have been a client of Jim Wing’s for more than a few years now so it’s very easy for me to list his professional qualities — integrity, intelligence, empathy and compassion. Sounds like the same lawyer ads we hear on TV, right? His courtroom skills, his professional yet engaging demeanor, and his devotion to the rights of children have amazed me. In all family and educational law issues, Jim brings years of experience and advocacy as well as commitment and support so you feel like he’s guiding you, not pushing you, through the court system. He gave us the advice we were looking for while letting us make the final decisions. He represented us at meetings and hearings and never failed to keep us in the loop. In this economy, it may seem like retaining a lawyer is the last thing you want to do, but we feel strongly that we got what we paid for and then, much, much more.

Attorney Wing helped me prove my son was eligible for special education and to negotiate for special pupil services. He was attentive to us and showed real concern for my son. The school seemed to both respect him and be a little intimidated.
