    Although Jim Nolletti is primarily engaged in family law matters, when I had a need for a criminal defense attorney for a client who had been arrested for a DUI / DWI offense and I sought suggestions as to whom to retain for this work, Jim's name came up with great adulations. Jim was glad to take on this matter and we arranged a date to meet in his office with my client to review pertinent facts. From this meeting there followed phone and e-mail correspondence through two court appearances resulting in the most favorable conclusion possible. Jim was always prompt and thorough with his attention to addressing matters of concern to my client. He is personable, respectful, and clearly knowledgeable and professional in his practice of the law. These are qualities which transcend the matter which I had brought to him and would extend, undoubtedly, to his primary area of practice, being that of family law. I highly recommend his legal services.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. James is a very fine attorney. I have seen his work first hand, and it is absolutely first rate. He is also a very saavy negotiator and trial attorney, who is very much respected by both the Bar and the Bench. He is partcularly skilled at handling divorce matters involving substantial and complicated assets, and he is always very well prepared. I know that he provides his clients with the utmost of service, and he is always availabel to them.
