    • I recommend Joseph McGuire.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    This attorney had and executed the strategy that minimized the amount of support payments that I am currently paying. He knew the law and used it to my advantage when separation support payments were being discussed as well as addressing false claims made by the opposing attorney. It seemed he was one step ahead of the Ex's attorney during the entire process keeping me from being backed into a corner and being forced to make a decision from nothing but bad choices. to choose from. He provided excellent recommendations and several times, to include the final settlement he said, "This is a very good deal. We are not going to get much better than this. Take it !!!!".

    I trust this attorney and continue to have his cell phone on speed dial. He has my most highest recommendation as a divorce attorney.

  2. I hired him through word of mouth.

    • I recommend Joseph McGuire.
    • I hired Joseph 6-12 months ago.
    • Joseph handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    A friend of mine hired Mr. McGuire 2 years ago and swore by his work. So I hired Mr. McGuire to handle my case in February and he did with due diligence and kept me informed throughout the process via email or phone, He is very experienced and the outcome surpassed my expectations. We won the case hands down which is exactly why I hired him. His rates were competitive and he didn't overcharge for frivolous details. I highly recommend him.

    • Joseph handled my Child Custody matter.

    Not always the easiest to talk to, often butted heads, but thats because we have the same personality. He did what he said he would do and that's all that matters.

    This lawyer, Joseph McGuire is TERRIBLE!!!!! Filed divorce through him. He let it drag on, constantly "loosing my information" while moving offices and problems through his secretary. He offered to then handle the case at a reduced cost because of the long delay in filing. He constantly made mistakes in the draft, having to revise each draft to be accurate. When this case still was not filed, I cancelled the case, only to find out that he charged me for the whole retainer and did not honor the reduced cost.
