    • I recommend James Moloughney.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Litigation matter.

    James Moloughney has proven himself to be a top notch, caring, fair and most professional attorney!
    I have experienced his professionalism personally and have recommended many people who have been extremely satisfied. When I read a review that was unfavorable I questioned the motive ! I am a very skeptical person and a perfectionist who is careful about those, I endorse. I suggest that for anyone who wants the best do what we have done, trust Mr. Moloughney. We trust him with our business and personal needs!

    • I do not recommend James Moloughney.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Jim Moloughney was my lawyer recently. As a customer here are my ratings:
    Knowledge - B
    Application of that knowledge to my case - D
    Responsiveness - C
    Fees - excessive - F (after having been granted a judgment of divorce, we had a judge's oeder to get things finalized within 2 weeks. Jim didn't move on that at all. Nothing - I called and emailed repeatedly and heard nothing - crickets) Four months later and many tens of thousands of dollars later, case was finalized. Disgraceful behavior, poor customer focus. Numerous errors and omissions with legal documents as well.
    Worth what paid for - F
    Likelihood to recommend - F (zero O chance I would recommend)
    And if you have an issue with Jim /or the DiFrancesco , Bateman law firm, beware. I was frustrsted with the lack of progress on my case, disucssed it with Jim, got nowhere, so took it to a partner at the firm. No response. Pathetic behavior.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Hence the saying "No good deed goes unpunished". I hesitate to respond to this because he seeks to continue arguing. Unfortunate that this "gentleman" resorts to this tactic because there is no truth to what he says. He was extremely high maintenance, (An email turns out to be as many as 10 or 19, in one day) yet complained about being billed for time spent on his case. He misunderstands things and then states them as fact (ie: his reference above.) He constantly undermined his own case because everyone else was inept. Blames everyone else, instead of the one he should be looking at. Only 2nd client in 32 years that I asked court to be relieved from. Lack of progress was solely due to fact that he and wife could not agree on anything, yet he constantly questioned why there was no settlement agreement. As a result, they had to go through court process, which apparently is my fault? The Judge put on record that he was very familiar with all that had transpired in this case and that he considered my actions to be "nothing short of heroic". Because he has been forced to pay his bill, many months later, he now tries to besmirch my reputation by filing a baseless and malicious statement online. Have explained things to him many, many times, but obviously a waste of time. He cannot see when someone is trying to help him, and remains his own worst enemy.
      I will not reply to him any further. Hopefully he can concentrate on productively rebuilding the relationships in his life. AVVO should have a way of eliminating this nonsense!
