Jim Gross provided me the highest caliber, personalized counsel and advice over the course of years, from the time I separated from my spouse through my final divorce and then later regarding a subsequent followup tust and estate matter. He is conscientiously careful and even conservative in the time he bills, thereby removing at least some of the anxiety from an invariably stressful experience. As a lawyer myself I have worked with and against many attorneys, and Jim Gross stands out as the only lawyer I would wholeheartedly recommend without reservation. I can affirm from my own experience and that of friends and colleagues that Jim is knowledgable, responsive and trustworthy to highest degree in his family law field.
Divorce is stressful. I hired Mr. Gross because of his motto, "the way to fire is with water." And throughout my sometimes acrimonious divorce, Mr. Gross's calming, kind attitude towards everyone involved diffused many a difficult moment. I appreciated Mr.Gross's keeping me focused when I would get overly emotional. He protected my pocketbook, not letting me utilize him as a therapist. And when things got really sticky, he was the fighter you want in your corner. Calm, patient but intractable in protecting my interests. I appreciated that he returned calls or emails very promptly, even after hours. When you are stressing out over a new issue, it was so helpful to have his expertise weigh in sooner rather than later.
I was looking for a fair and equitable divorce while having my interests protected. I am confident this is what was achieved. I would highly recommend Mr. Gross if that is your goal.
I hired Mr. Jim Gross to help enforce a Separation Agreement contract and mediate. He would respond almost immediately to all of my questions, emails, calls and was always honest without being brutal (but didn't sugarcoat anything either). He was always extremely level headed, courteous and professional when dealing with the opposing lawyer. He always kept me up to date on what was going on. I couldn't of asked for a better lawyer to represent me.
I cannot say enough good things about jim Gross. He is a fabulous attorney who exceeded all my expectations.
I was incredibly thankful for Mr. Gross's experience, responsiveness, and negotiating acumen as he assisted me in negotiating a parenting plan and obtaining greater custody of my son. He didn't waste my time (or money), and cut to the heart of every argument and issue. He is an incredibly valuable ally to have on your side if you have to through this.
I bought Mr. Gross's book, "Fathers' Rights" as a resource to help combat my husband's ex-wife's attempts to control and dictate his visitation with their children. We had not even noticed that the author practiced family law in Maryland, until we got very desperate and went combing through the book for more information. My husband emailed Mr. Gross with an explanation of our situation and our objective. Mr Gross replied within 24 hours with his suggested options and his firms location and rates. We decided to hire his firm and could not have been more pleased. We invested a lot of time and effort, and it was reassuring to feel that the counsel we sought, spent as much time and displayed care and integrity. We were often very emotional and Mr. Gross continued to remind us to remain focused and not to be lead by our emotions. The bottom line is we now have more time with the children, have writeen language to deter thier mother from unnecessary interference with visitation, and are paying a more reasonable amount of Child support.
I have utilized the services of Jim Gross and find him to be briliant in his negotiations. Any lawsuits received or executed carry with it the burdens of anger which Jim is able to subdue to get to the point and end goal satisfying both parties. There is a reason he is a member of The Mensa Socitey...........
Life gives you some lemons every once in a while. But it is nice when in rough times you find someone like James Gross who can help your make lemonade. Unfortunately I find myself going through a separation. I called a few lawyers who tried to steer me toward the adversarial, stressful and legally expensive route. This is despite the fact that I have a pre nuptial and an amicable separation.
Luckily I did my howework and found Mr. Gross. As I told him, his stellar reputation is NOT an exageration.
He was extremely accommodating, prompt and cordial. I had a seperation agreement in my hands in a little more than 24 hours.
I am grateful for his diligence in minimizing my stress level in this diffiuclt time.
I highly recommend his legal services.
...legal professional to navigate the Judicial system. His clear, thoughtful and informative advice will empower you to solutions for your legal problem rather then churning legal fees. He is worth every penny you choose to spend for legal advice and he takes 1/2 the time other attorneys would require to understand your case. He is consistently accessible and his expererience and knowledge combined with his desire to help others embody the attorney you want on your side. Call him. You will be glad you sought his counsel. I am!
Jim Gross is unusual to the extent that he has all of the qualities that you seek in an attorney - he is trustworthy, smart, calm and always available by either email or telephone. Mr. Gross handled and coordinate an out of state post-marital agreement for me that was managed to perfection. His cordial and professional manner with two other coordinating attorneys went a long way to make the process smooth. If you are overwhelmed with emotion and surrounded by caos he is the person to call for legal assistance. His legal fees are excellent for the quality of services that he provides.
